The food is phenomenal, service is outstanding and the ambiance is great. One thing you have to try is the beef rib. You have to ask for it because they don't always bring it around.

Although I am not a big meat eater, I found the salad bar very scrumptious and filling. My son and husband loved not only the salad bar but the various cuts of beef, pork, and lamb brought around to our table continually throughout our meal. We were all satisfied with our meals and look forward to going back again.

Great service (thanks Kayla!). Tend to enjoy this restaurant's aesthetics and service. Gauchos were great and timely! Especially enjoyed the flank and sirloin...lamb chops and leg usually tend to be quite tasty as well. Thanks Texas de Brazil...again!

The Salad Area has a Tuscan feel with an exceptional variety of quality first and second course foods you would expect of high end dinning. The managers and servers are prepared to make sure your dinning experience is enjoyable and that the different choices of meats prepared in the Southern Brazilian style of cooking are to the temperature and doneness to your liking. For the quality you receive, the price is fair but to receive an exceptional value, sign up on their website and receive a two for one dinning on your birthday.

The salad bar had a huge variety of fresh items. The rolls are delicious and small enough that they do not keep you from sampling all of the meats. All of the beef and lamb was expertly prepared and served. One of the wait staff asked if I would like mint jelly for the lamb and brought me a good portion. The dessert tray looked inviting, but there was no room for dessert.

Meat Lover's Paradise
We had a great food experience. Seated immediately, service impeccable, and the food was very tasty and plentiful. This is now one of our favorite food spots.

Very nice place. Lots of choices on the salad bar but a little limited on veggies. The meat was great and there was lots of it. The constant rotation and selection of meats was very nice. The only draw back was that sometimes the meat was medium well instead or medium rare when served to my wife but medium rare when served to me off of the same skewer. The service was excelent as soon as we entered, until we left.

Great food with okay service
My husband and I visit about 4 times a year. Since moving to the Short Pump location the salad area can be difficult to maneuver at times. The food is usually amazing, except when well done meat is served burned. My biggest criticism is the service. Despite having multiple servers it can still take 20 min to get a simple request (such as more bananas) if you get it at all. At our visit earlier this month service was exceptional, but after visiting again I'm afraid that was just a fluke. Something that would improve our experience significantly would be cards on the table indicating how we like our meat prepared so that we don't have to ask, "Well done?" to every gaucho with beef or lamb only to be disappointed when the meat is medium rare.

Service was absolutely outstanding. The food was delicious. And the atmosphere was perfect.

Great place to get your monthly
Great place to get your monthly meat craving, but you need to go hungry. My kids (boys 11,14,15) love it and it is our goto birthday dinner place. Salad bar is good, but this is a restaurant for meat lovers. My one piece of advice: the toughest part is waiting for the meats you want cooked to the level you want. It is hard to turn down filet medium when you know you usually like medium-rare to rare... but you don't want to fill up too fast either.

Great Place to Splurge!
The food and the service are impeccable. There is a selection of food where everyone can find something they will love to eat. You are paying for the choices and it is worth every penny. Join their rewards program - you won't regret it! Their is a stellar drink menu, especially if you like red wines. Sweet wine lovers, you'll be hard pressed to find something that suits your palate, but with all of the other options, it really doesn't matter.

Great for food...SKIP THE BAR!!!
As a nice birthday treat from my girlfriend, she treated me to a night of comedy and one of my favorite restaurants, Texas de Brazil. As expected, the meal was outstanding! We were a little late for our reservation, so we waited at the bar. Not enough room to tell you how bad the service was at the bar. In summation, the service was horrendous for an area of the restaurant presumably intended to profit from the sale of alcoholic beverages. The bartender poured us "one drink" each, and never returned. As such, his tip rightfully reflected the level of service we received. In short, the guy was nobody's host. He did however manage to close the tab without notice, and stealthily leave us the bill. Our server on the restaurant side was awesome!

If you're a man or just like meat, you need to eat here. Top sirloin and flank steak are my favorites, but everything is good. It's the only place where the server walks up to the table and asks if you want more filet wrapped in bacon and it makes sense to say no.

Texas de Brazil never disappoints
The gauchos are always on-point with their service and are very eager to please by cooking the meat to the desired degree of cooking. If a customer wants a particular cut of meat again, all he has to do is ask and it comes right out. I look forward to the whole Brazillian experience every time!

My husband and I have gone twice and definitely recommend this place when you are in the mood to splurge a little more on your meal and for a delicious meat-fest! We are huge fans of Fogo de Chao and honestly, this establishment beat them. The customer service is absolutely excellent and the food is fantastic! Highly recommend this place!

Quase Autentico Churrasco
Living in Brasil for the past three years, we arrived at the restaurant and were very pleased to find a Brasileira speaking português. The food was very good, the churrasceira used actual carvão (charcoal)! THe only thing missing from the menu compared to a churrasco in Brasil was coraçãozinho (small chicken hearts which the children adore - yes, Americans, too). The sausage was very spicy compared to Brasil (although Americans like the spice). So with these two small exceptions you will not find a more authentic Brasilian churrascaria here in RIchmond, VA.

Server / Manager
Ther server was spot on!
We attempted several times to reserve the table with Open Table mobile app. For so reason or another it was not working. David, one of the managers, took my name, email, number, and we went on our way shopping in the mall. David, within 30 minutes, had booked me a table and I had received an email. Thanks for going the extra mile David!

I brought a co-worker who was a bit reluctant to try new things. I convinced her there would be no scary foods. She agreed to go. Short story is that she ate and enjoyed every single thing put upon her plate. So did I. It's a wonderful experience full of delicious nuggets. A different dining experience that everyone should try!

First Visit,but many more to follow
Very nice experience. Food was great and gave us the opportunity to try many different selections without having to order complete plate of any one meat. Salad bar was tops. Although pricey, was worth it and we will return, but with empty stomachs from now on.

We chose Texas de Brazil to celebrate our anniversay. It was wonderful, the service was spot on. They attended to our every need. The food was delicious and so was dessert. I would love to go back again.

Whenever you can't find anything new or exciting... You can always depend on Texas de Brazil to be a whole new experience every time you are there it is a different and unique experience... Love it!!!
