A word from Texas de Brazil - Buffalo
Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining.

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.

    Unique and enjoyable restaurant. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient and personable. The $45 cost is pricey if one is not a big meat eater( I am and I'm called a carnivor ). Wine list could use a few more lower priced items. Definitely worth a try !!

    Compared to other Texas de Brazil Restaurants, this one is smaller and as a result, tables are more crowded and choices at the salad bar is less. All meats are cooked to perfection and I love the cooked beans. Will definitely return if I'm in the Buffalo area.

    Our party of 5 enjoyed our dinner at this new Buffalo-area destination restaurant. We had been to other Texas de Brazil locations across the country previously.. We arrived on time for our 7pm reservation and waited approximately 20 minutes to be seated. We immediately noticed the relatively high noise level throughout the restaurant, which was in contrast to the more subdued sound levels we had experienced at the other locations. The service was great and very attentive. We took advantage of a verbal special on bottles of Charles Krug Cabernet Sauvignon, which complemented our meal very well. The salad area was bountiful as expected and all of the meats we tried were excellent. We'll return when another special occasion occurs.

    We very much enjoyed our meal. It is expensive and if you are not a big meat eater then this is not the place for you. The salad area was not as large as I had thought it would be. The restaurant is beautiful but there is not much fabric that would absorb the noise so it is loud. We would go back but only for a special dinner.

    This place is amazing for meat lovers. Never ending delicious well cut well prepared well cooked meat (lamb, beef, chicken) . Absolutely fantastic place to dine. Best part about the end of the meal was the donation for hungry children. All that food made me feel guilty and I loved the fact that we were able to contribute as part of our dining experience

    I have never been so impressed with a restaurant before. I took my boyfriend here, coming from Canada, for his birthday and the service was impeccable. Each server would great you with kindness and ensure you have received everything that you wanted. Our personal waiter was very kind, professional and was respectful, also never kept us waiting too long. Other servers of the meat were all very friendly and asked us personally if we wanted anything particular. The buffet style table full of appetizers and veggies was delicious! All the meats were juicy and cooked to the way you like it if asked and oh my, the dessert - Brazilian cheesecake .... Mouth-watering!!! The restaurant is a definitive recommend and Was so worth the drive!!

    There is no way that on a busy evening one bartender can handle the bar area plus the servers especially when they have you wait for your table. Then a manager comes to help and he was at most confused about working behind a bar

    Last year I had gone to a Texas Brazilian in Chicago . It was amazing , so when it came to buffalo I was very excited to have my husband try it . Ugh it was horrible all the food that came out was med/ well when it should be med/rare . We sat there for an hour and a half at a table with a wobble,and only saw 7 of the 18 items listed to be passed . It was so loud I couldn't hear a word my husband said . And I swear the buffet was a lot bigger in Chicago .. The decor was completely left over from hide park . Ugh I kept my mouth shut so my husband who thankfully had nothing to compare too . Might enjoy it .. But when the $ 135 bill ( with only 1 drink) came I did NOT feel I got my money's worth ...

    This is the second birthday celebrated since they opened this year. The service was better the first time. We made reservations for 630 pm a little later than last time. Our waiter was very busy so there were times we didn't see him and there were certain meats we had to ask to get more of because after the first time they never came back. We would go back but at the 5 pm timeslot rather than 630 pm.

    I'm so glad I went to a Texas de Brazil in another city. I have great belief in the brand. As for the Cheektowaga/buffalo location. I will not go back there ever. I feel for the waitress that waited on us. Without proper management the staff has no chance to excel in their jobs.

    It's 45.00 for dinner, the meats they give you are tasty and you can get as much as you want, as far as the salad bar, it was nothing big. The waitress doesn't tell you that you have to request a light dish if your just eating the salad bar, but I told her at the end when we got the bill and noticed that she charged us and only 3 of the 6 of us had the meats, the desserts were 9.00 a piece, for what it cost I could have had a much better meal at Russals steak house, I will not return nor recommend people to go there.

    The reason for my reservation on September 9th was for a business dinner amongst four colleagues. Our company, which has employees nation wide, has hosted several small meals at various Texas De Brazil locations over the years. Typically we always have a great experience. However we left this dinner very disappointed. The service was mediocre, not friendly or engaging-just there. The food however was the big let down. The meats were all over cooked, and the servers sliced the smallest pieces I have ever seen from any Brazilian Steakhouse I have ever been too. On more than one occasion we found ourselves asking them to slice more because what they found appropriate to give us was lacking.

    We started at the bar for happy hour and enjoyed ice cold $3 bottled beer. Then enjoyed lobster bisque and a very upscale hot/cold salad bar. The handsome men continued to deliver delicious meats right to our table and for huge appetites, it's "all you can eat" style. I would save this restaurant for vey special occasions, as it's not your everyday dining out experience. It's truly a unique dining experience with top notch service and quality.

    High quality meats, savory flavors, and best of all its all you can eat! Love going to this place the only problem is the price is higher than an average dinner out so I can only justify going for special occasions. There is plenty variety of sides along with choices of meats. Noise level was a little loud and a littler darker than i would like it but some might say it sets a better mood.

This was a great way to start the experience. She was very well versed in the drink menu and the restaurant. She told us about everything since it was our first time.

    Our reservation was at 4pm, the first seating of the day. We were sat at a table that was up against the side bar of the buffet, so everyone who went up to get food was right next to us. The salad bar was good, although not nearly as good as I expected from the description on the website. All the beef was cooked medium rare, which they will cook more for you, but takes a while. Meat was definitely plentiful, and it kept coming. Although there were a few men in suits who came by to ask how we were doing, waitstaff seemed overloaded. And just a pet peeve....if Im spending $150 on dinner for two, it would be nice if the restaurant had some sort of dress code. All in all it was ok, a unique experience...but for the price, I wont be back.

    As compared to the Texas De Brazil in Florida this one wasnt as good. The salad bar wasn't as extensive and found the meat to be overly salted. I specified on the reservation that it was for a birthday celebration but no mention of it. I even went up to the hostess to remind her and still nothing no cake no singing no nothing. Maybe I'll return not sure yet.

    We selected this restaurant for a special occasion, and were not disappointed! The food was truly outstanding, and the chance to try so many different types of meat at one meal was amazing. My favorite items were the cheese bread, fried bananas, and parmesan crusted pork, but my family had a lengthy discussion of the many wonderful items. I would very much recommend this restaurant for a unique dining experience.
