About this Article

Like any self-respecting Brazilian steakhouse, Chama Gaucha in Downers Grove is traversed by sword-wielding gauchos. The scent of spit-fired proteins wafts through the manly, spacious dining room, where the salad bar serves as a focal point -- and distraction -- from meat, meat and more meat. In traditional fashion, this is an all-you-can-eat affair.
