    the host at the door not friendly enough for this kind of expensive restaurant and water talks too fast to explain the menu the people who distribute the meat should be answering any question about the menu or the salad bar and not answering I don't know !

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    This spot was great for our anniversary. I had flowers delivered prior to showing up for our reservations and they were on the table prior to sitting. Towards the end the waiter brought out desert of our choice and took it upon himself to write around the plate "Happy Anniversary" and put a candle in the pie. The only thing that was a minor setback was that we had to continue to ask for well done meats for my wife but that was no biggie.

    I have dined at Texas de Brazil 5 times. Each time the food has been some of the best I've ever had. The meats are always cooked to perfection. If one is not done enough, or not done the way you like it, they will have one cooked for you specifically. This time however, the service seemed subpar by their standards. I don't expect much, but from my experiences there in the past, this was below what they usually offer. The server never asked if we wanted a meat specifically, or came to check and see if everything was ok during our meal, or topped off our wine or anything like the service you usually receive and expect from TdB. All in all, it didn't bother me too much, just pointing it out. I drive 3 hours to go here, and I will return.

    The food was absolutely delicious. Quite literally some of the best I've ever had at a restaurant. The server was fairly good but kind of pushy about us ordering alcohol. My fiance and I don't drink. She also took long enough between visits of our table that she felt the need to apologize twice.

    Salad bar was great but not as big as the Orlando location. I imagine it's because Orlando has more tourists and is a much busier location. The meat is consistently great at each location that we visit. I will definitely be returning and highly recommend Texas De Brazil.

    Dined on 10/26/2014
    Great place for special occasion as the atmosphere, service, food was all top notch. You do have to keep an eye on the little green/red discs you get because you could find your plate full of different meats at one time and not remember which was which. The salad bar has enough variety to satisfy anyone. The only complaint we had was the price of sodas. There were no free refills and each coke ordered was served from one of the fancy small bottles with a $3.00 price tag - a bit high when the price of dinner is already at the high end. Disappointed that they did nothing to recognize the two birthdays that were being celebrated though.

    Dined on 10/22/2014
    Texas de Brazil is BY FAR the BEST Rodizio in town. This Brazilian-style all-you-can-eat meat heaven is perfect. The price is perfectly matched with the incredible quality of the food and the service. The meat is seasoned to perfection, despite the large amounts of it that are being served constantly (unlike the other two all-you-can-eat Brazilian-style restaurants that I won't name). The staff is delightful, they are attentive and remember what you like and what you want despite always being incredibly busy. The attention is always wonderful. I can't rave enough about the food!! I would go here once a week if I could afford it.

    Have eaten at a couple of these previously. I found this very squashed, so much so that the waiters couldn't get to part of our table of 4 very easily. We were also disappointed with the time between visits from the waiters with the meat choices, also our waiter asked us how we would like our meat, 3 medium 1 medium rare, all though we waited nothing came medium so we had to eat medium rare, which wasn't ideal. We waited ages for the mash and sweet plantins, requested extra rolls which never arrived. Really not the best visit although it wont stop me trying other branches of the restaurant.

    Texas de Brazil is an apic experience for meat lovers, although I am sure that the salad bar would appeal to vegetarians also. The staff are exceptional in making you feel welcomed and caters to your needs i.e. what type of meat would you like? your preferred doneness? etc.

    From start to finish the service was outstanding. if you can't find something good to eat here, something is wrong - I was careful to not eat too much at the food bar so I could have my chicken wrapped in bacon, my filet mignon medallions, my baby filet mignon wrapped in bacon, sirloin steak, pork tenderloin, and some other very good beef (all beef medium rare - melt in your mouth), oh, food bar - couscous, heart of palm, asparagus, Brazilian black beans w/tender beef (I put it over rice), I could go on, then my husband had his Grand Marnier dessert drink, I had hot tea and we shared a piece of Brazilian cheesecake which they placed on a decorated plate, wrote Happy Birthday, it had a candle, too! It was so special - plus I got $25 off!

    The experience all round was very good. I am glad I did it once. I would love to go back again but the price would be the show stopper. But hey... there were plenty of people there so if they can charge $50 a plate and people come...go for it. For three people, $50 with tip...$200 was just too much to spend.

    Some, not all of the meats are noticeably salty. Others have said that they all were. I was expecting not to be able to eat quite a few of the offered selections, but there were only two that I tasted and decided not to finish because of the saltiness. The meats were wonderful and the salad bar was fantastic as well. My 76 year old mother enjoyed herself immensely. It was her first Brazilian Steak House experience. Lovely evening. I highly recommend this restaurant particularly for special occasion dining.

    All I can say is what a waste of money! Very expensive for just par food. Everything was loaded with salt, it would have been nice to enjoy some seasonings, but the salt was overwhelming in each meat. The salad bar was fair, at best and I expected a nicer variety. For the price I expected much more and will spend my $ elsewhere!

    This is a fairly expensive dinner date. However, the endless, high-quality meat the deliver to you consistently makes it worth every penny. Their salad bar is pretty well stocked with some fancy, great tasting foods as well. Though I would suggest going straight for the meats and saving as much room as you can. I tried every different piece of meat they were serving and every single one was amazing. I highly recommend this place for any meat-eaters!

    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.
