What Kind of Cuisine Can You Find in a Brazilian Churrascaria?

Since a Churrascaria is synonymous with grilled meat, expect a lot of barbecued meats.

At Terra Gaucha, we serve a variety of fire-roasted meats. Our chefs take pride in each part of the cooking process. They select, butcher, season, and cook every piece of meat to perfection. 

Our meats offerings include varieties:

  • Bovina / Beef

    • Picanha ao Alho (With Roasted Garlic)

About Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse

Terra Gaucha is an authentic churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse in Florida with locations in Tampa and Jacksonville. The name Terra Gaucha comes from these Brazilian Cowboys known as Gauchos. These Gauchos are notorious for cooking skewered meats over an open flame after using rock salt to season the meats. Terra Gaucha Gaucho chefs take the time to select, butcher, season, and cook every single skewer so that it is just right for you. Then, the wonderful chefs come over to your table to carve off any meat of your choice.

Terra Gaucha holds great pride in continuing this practice of seasoning and cooking skewered meats over an open natural wood flame combined with our traditional rodizio-style dining to cater your needs while dining with us.
