A word from Texas de Brazil - Birmingham
Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas.
Treat yourself to our 50-60 item gourmet salad area including appetizers, fresh vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As your dining experience continues, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink or steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance that is Texas de Brazil.

  • "The salad bar was great but not so stunning for the meats, they all tasted the same and very salty tried the fried banana inbetween meats and still no difference. My wife hated all of it and our meal was 103.00 and 118.00 with a tip and we left and went somewhere else to eat. Too expensive for the flavorings you offer.. Service was great though. Just wasnt our cup of tea and we wasted 118.00.. Sincerely, Chris"

  • "Terrific new place badly needed in downtown Birmingham. The place is simply beautiful, incredible salad bar, and the Brazilian serving style is unique and lots of fun, not to mention delicious. Of course some selections are tastier than others, but that's part of the experience. And best cheesecake slice ( for my birthday:) ) we have ever had !"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We found the food to be excellent - both the salad bar and meat. The salad bar was clean, well presented and delicious. My favorite offerings were the couscous salad the the potato salad. The meats were also delicious, and the gouchos accommodated both me, who likes things well-done, and my wife who likes them medium rare. Our server, Ty, was very attentive. He did a very good job of explaining how the meat service worked, keeping our glasses filled and displaying and describing the drinks and desserts. He returned to our table often to make sure that our needs were being met."

  • "We normally go to Flemings for celebrations because of their special attention to details, service and food. We decided to try Brazil this time. Food was good. The waiter did wish my daughter happy bday, and that was nice, but that is where it ended. No special dessert with candle or anything. Same ole time as when you go any other time. Nice restaurant, good food, but when I want to celebrate and feel special and pampered it's back to Flemings."

  • "The salad bar is a meal on its own. The meats are all seasoned perfectly and you can set the pace of the table side service."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Great place in the heart of Uptown Birmingham! The food is magnificent, and perfectly prepared. Love the "salad" (not really just salad--all types of sushi, cold meats, veggies, fruits) bar and the lobster bisque is delectable. I could make a meal off that, some cheese and croutons! Definitely a nice place to take a date, but go hungry! So many types of meat, and it's literally all you can eat. Wonderful atmosphere, and our service was perfection. Thanks, Jessica!"

  • "Eating at Texas de Brazil was an experience! One that I highly recommend. I love trying varieties of foods. So this was the place. All the meats were cooked to perfection. Of course I liked some better than others. The food bar was a beautiful display with hot and cold items which I advise not to go to "heavy" on so you'll have room for the main entrees. I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This was the first time I had been to Texas de Brazil and I was very impressed the salad bar was phenomenal the service was quick and friendly and the choices of entree meats was great. I don't know if I can pick a favorite! They were all delicious. Only complaint would be the noise level which was a little loud but over all the experience was a ten. Keep up the great work!"

  • "This is the most outstanding dining experiance i have ever had !! Far better than any of the high end steak house's !!!"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Service was wonderful and my favorite were the medium cooked lamb chops. It's so easy to make a reservation that we did it once we got to the restaurant and I went online and made the reservation and the was availability every 15 minutes so we didn't have to wait the 45 minutes time frame given without reservation. we were seated within 15 minutes, that was great!"

  • "I wanted to take my dad somewhere that I knew he would enjoy. Texas de Brazil was great. Great Food, Great Service. I really enjoyed myself. Our server 'Gaucho' was so knowledgeable and polite. He was so eager. It was just a great experience."

  • "Food was great but service was very slow and dinning room was loud! It took us almost three hours to get through dinner."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "It was excellent and we will return. The only thing is that got a $25 off coupon for my birthday which was on Saturday. The coup in is good Sunday they Thursday only. I couldn't use my coupon, nor will I ever be able to. I work long hours during the week and can only dine here on Friday or Saturday's. Considering the price is the same on those nights as it is on the weekends, I do not understand the logic on restricting coupon use to weeknights only. Anyone else I know say the same...they can't use the coupon on weeknights due to kids at home and work schedules. Maybe a change should happen here on this. Otherwise, this place is full of awesomeness!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The wait time for our table was a little long but well worth the wait. Our server was quietly attentive, (my favorite kind) the gauchos were friendly and the food was outstanding. Possibly the best lamb I have ever eaten. All the meats were really flavorful and perfectly cooked.All around it was a great experience and I looked good for having recommended it to my wife's boss and her husband, he is still raving about it. I rarely tip more than the standard 15-20% but the service my family received really demanded I do so. It was the best all around service we have had in the Birmingham area"

  • "Let me start off by saying I am a food snob(MY family and friends call me this). I am a foodie. I love good food! I have been to a Brazilian restaurant in Atlanta and it was not very good but we have heard good reviews on Texas de Brazil. So we took a chance. Looked it up on line . Signed up for their email. The next day I had a $25.00 off coupon! Ok this was getting better! We had a reservation and were promptly seated. Alicia was our server and she explained the process very well and was very attentive during our dinner. The food on the bar is not a typical salad bar. It is outstanding gourmet gems of food. My husband is quite the carnivore and we had meat galore! All of the food was outstanding and delicious as well as the service!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "This place is unbelievable. Anyone can make a full meal from the "salad" area. These folks think salmon, shrimp, and sushi should be included in the salad area. What a country!! Chicken, sirloin, filet, leg of lamb(this was my favorite), beef ribs, pork ribs, flank steak, pork loin...I could go on but you get the idea. An endless supply of meat. This is going to be one of our regular stops. Try it, you will not be disappointed."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "I visited the Texas de Brazil Birmingham on July 30. The overall dinning experience was good. The salad bar was excellent containing a wide variety of tasty items. The meat portion of the dinner was hit or miss. At times the meat was hot and fresh off the grill, but other times the meat was cold and dried out. Pork and chicken were the most commonly dry meat items. If you ordered meat that was cooked other than medium rare they took longer to get table side and came around less often. The side items brought table side were often cold, and were not replaced or refilled. The hot bar items were tasty, but the potatoes were not to my personal liking. The wait staff were excellent and friendly. Desert was over priced. No menu or clear pricing."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "I have Dinned at Texas de Brazil several times before and this last experience was terrible! The waiter who never introduced himself but is easily Identified due to the fact that he was cross-eyed was awful. The waiter took 20 min to come to the table to bring water. I had to retrieve my own plates from the salad bar to have the meat placed on. Last but not least some of the food appeared to be refrigerated and reheated such some of the meat and the au gratin potatoes which I was so looking forward too."

  • "This is our second visit in a month (1st for my bday, then my hubby's). It was even better the second time! Our server (Megan) was super-friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful! We got our fill (& more). The only negative for the evening really shocked me. There was a server that walked right in front of me while I was walking to the bathroom, I mean RIGHT in front of me - and didn't say a word. No "excuse me, or sorry" or anything. I was so caught off guard that I said "Well, ok then!" He just looked at me and kept walking. Very rude. I didn't catch his name but he had longer hair than any of the other servers and he had it slicked back. You might remind him to think of the customers and not run them over!"

  • "This was my first time in this restaurant and I must say the first thing that got me was the personalized service we received. The waiter was so attentive that I did not even have to look for him it was like he had esp and knew when and what I needed. Second was the salad bar which was presented wonderfully and third the different cuts of meats that were cooked to perfection. When you go here make sure you go with a appetite because you will have many choices to choose from"

  • "I treated my parents to your restaurant to celebrate their 51st wedding anniversary--let me just say it's been almost a week since and they're still talking about it! The service; the atmosphere; and oh yes--THE FOOD! was simply spectacular! We will be back soon! I've told family; friends; and co-workers and they're gonna visit soon."

  • "Reservations were at 7pm and we were seated precisely on time. Salad bar is fantastic. Lots of variety, very atypical selections. Tokens flipped up/down tell Gauchos whether or not to stop at your table with selections (pace yourself). The top sirloin special was outstanding, as was the filet. Lamb was very good. Had my favorites, but didn't taste anything I wouldn't eat again. Gauchos had a good sense of humor. Our waitress was a bit slow bringing us some items that were not special requests, but normal parts of the meal. A minor grievance, really. Great atmosphere. Not too loud, but still very fun and "alive." You'd pay double for this much food anywhere else, and it probably wouldn't be as good. Definitely going back."

  • "We went with a party of 14 for my husband and sons birthday. It was great. We enjoyed all of the food and especially having the servers bring delicious dish after dish to our table. The atmosphere was fun and friendly. We made reservations and went straight to our table when we arrived. We will be going back. Fun for a large group of people as well as a romantic date."

  • "The best Brazilian steakhouse I've been to. (Possibly the best restaurant I've been to) We went early, at 4pm, before the crowds. Perfect timing, the salad bar and the meats were fresh and plentiful. A great experience. This is the first time I've been to the Texas de Brazil in Birmingham. I've been to the one on Orlando. This is just as good."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Although this is a steakhouse, vegetarians can pay a lower price and find a wide selection of delicious and fancy items at the cold and hot bar. But the meats are what makes this place stand out. Be careful to pace yourself and not get too excited with all the wonderful items from the bar; leave plenty of room for all the meats which will be the best part of your meal (I made that mistake - so mad at myself!!). My favorites were the lamb (I usually hate lamb because it tastes gamey to me - but not this one!) and the beef cuts, but they also have chicken, pork, and sausage. And you HAVE to try the lobster bisque from the hot bar!"

  • "This is one of the places I always see advertised in airline magazines while traveling, but never stayed near one. I was excited to see that we got one in Birmingham and decided to try it for date night with my wife. We made reservations for a Friday night and were seated promptly on arrival. Although they have a very nice and extensive wine list, the weather was so warm that red wine didn't appeal to us; we'll be sure to try it in the fall. The soup and salad was very good; the salad bar had far more thna I imagined and could have easily made a meal. The carved meat was expertly prepared (medium-rare) and delicious; beef, bacon-wrapped tenderloin, chicken, ribs. I'm not a fan of lamb, so I can't judge. Great new restaurant."
