Very enjoyable! We are really looking forward to our next visit we try to do at least 4 times a year. Once again, many thanks to ANDREW and the wonderful staff. Dr. John and Barbara Terry

We bought a coupon through groupon last year but didn't get a chance to use that and we still could use $25 toward purchase and we had a special $25 off offer from Texas de brazil but they said we can't use both even we explain that $25 from Groupon is not a coupon that was what we paid for.

  • A Solid Favorite
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/21/2014
    I was introduced to Tex'd'Brazil in 2010. I had only heard of Fogo de Chao, but had never before been to a Brazilian steakhouse. After my first experience at Tex'd'Brazil, it was instantly a top favorite! I visit maybe once or twice a year (kinda pricey to make out here too much more often than that), and the food is consistently good! I love the Lobster Bisque, and the gourmet salad fixings. Oh, and that Carrot Cake....#dead *__* This time around, the meat server guys (I forgot their official title) were a little lackluster in demeanor/attitude--which did lessen the experience a small bit. However, the experience was still good, my friends enjoyed it, and I will continue to keep them at the top of my list of favorite restaurants.

    We had probably one of the worst experiences we've ever had at this location. There was no major incident, it was just overall shockingly bad. In short, the hostesses acted as though they were paid to be rude little snots, there were only 5 meats brought to our table - chicken wrapped in bacon, Parmesan chicken, skirt steak, bacon wrapped filet and the house special cut steak. I asked for my meat to be done med/well. Why was I ONLY brought these refired, burnt, bits of blackened meat by gauchos rolling their eyes constantly!? We're not demanding, only one special request (temp on meat) - we're pretty self sufficient. There was no reason for the attitudes that were rampant that night. This was definitely our last time.

    I've been to several Fogo and several Texas de locations. I often found them to be neck and neck. But my experience at the Fairfax location was a little less consistent then what I have come to expect. There were several types of meat that never made it to us and we had to ask. Even after we asked the wait staff, they did not all make it to us. Typically it is more structured but it seemed a bit chaotic.

    We've been here several times and recently it's been a little hit or miss. Some of the selections were so over salted/seasoned we couldn't even eat them. They fixed up some lightly seasoned but after a while you just lose your appetite and for what you spend here it should all be good, I think. We asked specifically for lamb chops and filet and it was pretty slow coming out. The salad bar is very good though.

    Texas de Brazil, for me is only a special occasion restaurant. The cost is high and to get your moneys' worth you have to eat a lot of food. The meats are good, if somewhat over salted in some cases. The tableside service of the meats from scewers is unique. The salad bar is excellent and very flavorful. The atmosphere is very loud which makes it haard to carry on a conversation with others in your party. Sangria pitcher was excellent, though it had a lot of ice in it, so it became watered down very quickly. Not sure we will be dining there again anytime soon.

    Foods are really salty and even we request for meat without salt still came out salty. This is our second try on this restaurant and we are thinking not to come back again as we don't want to have a kidney problem. There were at least 5 managers on this restaurant that I've seen but I don't know what wrong with their tastes buds as I'm sure that I am not the only guest who had the same complain.

    The food at Texas de Brazil is very good and they keep it coming. If you don't watch out you can definitely over eat. I recommend not filling up on the salad bar yo uwill regret not having room for all the meat. One issue is they send you these coupons for your Birthday then put way down at the bottom in fine print that they are only good Sunday through Thursday. This is wrong, they need to make these coupons good anytime!

    While it is certainly a carnivore's paradise Texas de Brazil offers an outstanding and diverse salad bar offering for all but the pickiest vegetarians. Attentive service and bottomless portions in a classic if somewhat dark high end restaurant setting has made for many consistently satisfying meals for me and everyone I have taken there over the last few years.

    The food met my expectations (I had high hopes). Fresh, interesting and very tasty. Our server was very attentive but didn't check in with us toward the end of our meal. We sat there waiting to be noticed for over 10 minutes after we finished. I had to wave her down to ask for our check. The problem with this is she was not busy. She had at most 4 tables in her area that she spoke with. We were there for an early dinner. Also, we told her it was my birthday but she made no effort to make the dinner special. I thought she might offer a small dessert or something. Nope. So though the food was really good I hope we don't have her for our server again.

  • Salty Meat
    ImNotEvenAPickyEater
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    This was the 3rd and last time that we gave this place a chance. We had forgotten how salty the meat was since our last visit had been a year ago. However, this time, there was no mistaking the extremely salty meat. If you don't die from sodium overload instantly, you'll be forced to drink a ton of water for your body to balance out all of the sodium in their meats. I've been to other great Brazilian barbeque places but this place just has just had super salty meat...everytime.. We thought maybe it was just a bad day for the cooks or something and maybe a few months and even a year spacing would give us a different experience. We will never be going back to this place ever again. Though I must say, the little bread balls were delicious!

    Having eaten there before, I was expecting great food in a terrific space, and we got both. The salad bar is awesome, with mixed greens and other "standard" fare along with incredible, unique items including marinated mushrooms, tabouleh, and other delicacies. The meats? What can I say? They are magical. I think my son ate his weight, and we all tried everything. Delicious! The desserts, which we ended up taking home, were fabulous. The only down side is that the price for beverages (coffee, tea, etc.) and dessert are high, and there are not "bottomless" cups. Wow, did that add to the price! All in all, though, I'll certainly recommend Texas de Brazil to others and I'd go again--but next time, mentally prepared.

    You have to pace yourself and the temptation is to eat too much. Go easy on the great salad bar and soup. Enjoy the house wine at 29 dollars a bottle was excellent for the cab we had. Lamb chops were the best but so was most everything else only complaint was the garlic mashed were not warm enough but surprisingly the lobster bisque was hot so you never know. All I know was I ate too much great food great service. We made reservations but still waited 20 min for our table. First time dining here and would go again. Plan to spend $75 per person with drinks and tip add another 25 if you want dessert. Expensive but worth it!

I think their competitor in DC salad bar is a little more creative, but also more pricy. I love this place for a birthday, or out of town friends!!! Love the cheese bread and sweet plantains

    Having lived in Brazil and loving the Brazilian style of cooking and serving meats, I go to Texas de Brazil to enjoy a close version of that experience. While the salad bar is excellent, it's the unlimited supply of meats on skewers brought out constantly by the servers that is the attraction. Meat lovers rejoice!

    This was my second time to bring a group and I particularly noticed the commitment to quality of the foods - especially the meats. Prices were higher than a few years ago, but I would rather pay more than lower the food quality. We were seated next to a loud group, so we had difficulty understanding the table servers (or each other). I observe that the accoustics of the room increase the noise level rather than soften it. It's a great place for an energetic business or family group; but don't expect a calm and quiet dinner. We enjoyed our dinner and will return.

    We have been to TdB several times and always find the staff to be fantastic. If they see your plate empty they will ask if there is a specific cut you are waiting for and then they send that server over to your table. I marked this as good for children as their is sufficient background noise to not cause Mom & Dad to cringe every time their little one gets a little loud.
