Tucanos Brazilian Grill


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Tucanos is an experiential dining, family-friendly destination that combines the unique serving style of the traditional Brazilian grilling, referred to as "churrasco" (shoe-HAS-ko) - an exhibition-style meal surrounded by flames and colors, with the flair and festivity of the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. The cuisine features specially seasoned or marinated meats and vegetables (nearly 20 varieties), grilled and then served hot off the skewers at each table until the guest's appetite is fully gratified. Guests will find one-of-a-kind touches at the restaurant abound, including the color-coded, Tucanos Cue. Placing the Tucanos cue green side up lets the entree servers know that guests would like

Tucsnos is a flashy, loud, bustling place. They offer a great trifecta salad bar with many offerings. They also have a nice selection of drinks and desserts. The meat rotation is ok, obviously some items better than others. I've had both great and poor service...More

This is the second time we’ve been to Tucanos in Boise. It was well worth the 1 hour and 15 minute wait to be seated (without a reservation on a Saturday evening during the holidays - totally expected). Our waiter, Isco, was awesome!! He was...More

We frequent this restaurant often and are never disappointed. Chance, who was a server there for the meats/vegetables is our favorite of the staff. He is awesome, as well as all the other staff there as well. Will continue coming for delicious food!

Yes they have a bar. This is a fun experience and if you are in the mood to experiment this is the place to be. The food is excellent and the salad bar is amazing.
