A word from Texas de Brazil - Pittsburgh
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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Went out to eat here for a special occasion dinner and we had a wonderful time! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was great, and the service was fantastic. Drinks were amazing too."

  • "Texas de Brazil is an excellent restaurant. But with excellence, comes price. So it is not a place most people can afford to go to very often. We like to go there for special occasions. Our last visit was to treat some friends who are from Wisconsin to a wonderful meal. They had never been to a Texas de Brazil before, and they were impressed---which was our goal. Our waitress was extremely efficient, professional and friendly. When ever we had a question, she was able to answer it. (Once she even went in the back to consult some other employees, and came back with our answer!) The service was great too, and the food was delicious. I have no complaints!"

  • "We decided to visit Texas de Brazil because we're celebrating our 3 year anniversary, and green forest would not seat anybody after 7:15. They also would not take reservations. Knowing that one of us had to work until 7pm, we decided to try Texas de Brazil. Needless to say, we'll likely never visit Green Forest again, since Texas de Brazil's food, service and overall hospitality blew them out of the water for a comparable price. Their cold bar was ten times better too. If Green Forest would have accepted reservations, they probably would not have lost two decade long customers."

  • "Went to TDB as a combination anniversary/birthday with my wife, so I was ok with the check being $100 for two of us, but that's dinner only, had just water to drink. A lot of fantastic meats, and it keeps coming for as long as you want it to. Make sure you do t eat all day to make it worth the effort. Space is rather loud. Waitstaff is very attentive, managers walk the floor as well. Meats are generally cooled medium rare, which makes me happy, but you can request well done as well as no salt if you're willing to wait for it to cook specifically for you. And if you especially like something just ask for more. For our budget this is at most a once-a-year treat. Would be fun with a group, but bring cash - they don't split checks."

  • "I've eaten at another local Brazilian steakhouse which was much more intimate and low-key, but Texas de Brazil is a lot of fun. The place is high-energy, with the meat servers constantly circulating and several large groups were there enjoying themselves when we came for our date. It wasn't too noisy to talk even with the groups. If you've never done a Brazilian steakhouse style dinner before, be warned- DO NOT fill up at the salad bar. The meat is the center of attention here for good reason. The fried bananas and garlic potatoes with the meat were also quite good. We'll be back for special occasions in the future. We also tried the chocolate cake and creme brûlée' for dessert- both were delicious."

  • "We have been dining at this restaurant multiple times. This was the worst experience we have had! The place was not busy and they sat us behind a pole. The servers with the meat barely came around. We had to tell our waitress multiple times and the service still did not change! This was the first time a manager did not come around to ask how our service was. Of course because it was terrible!!! We will not be returning for awhile and will make sure to let everyone we know about our experience!"

  • "Service was slow for the type of restaurant. Meats were good when they did finally go by your table. Salad bar was a mess and often empty. For the price, we will go elsewhere."

  • "It was my first time enjoying Brazilian churrascuria. I loved it! The salad/side bar was absolutely amazing. Everything was so fresh. The meats were perfectly prepared. Wonderful time for a special occasion. The cocktails were also fresh and delicious."

  • "Great food and services -- we all loved it! Fantastic for families and business - nice addition to Pittsburgh."

  • "The food was excellent but the music was way too loud for dinner, we could bearly hear the waiter or each other. Also, we went to a romantic dinner around 8 and there were so many children screaming and running around. I suggest going later at night if you are planning something romantic with a significant other"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The meat variety and quality is very good. Brazilian sides are delicious, good wines. However the salad bar is limited on fresh products, not fruits, the only option for salad was tomatoes, lettuce and heart palms. Could be better...."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We had a group of 12 people, and the service was still excellent. The servers made sure we had whatever kind of meat we wanted. Everyone had a great time and the food was delicious."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Let's face it -the star of the show is the meat. The bacon wrapped filet was a favorite of our group. The salad bar was well stocked with something to please every one. I felt the tables were too close together which made it difficult for the servers. Many times, the servers had to reach over guests at our table."

  • "too salty. really really salty. selection of meats are different from the last time"

  • "Our party of 8 had a really good time, great food, very nice & accommodating server Madison, she was very knowledgeable about everything. We were also able to sit before our whole party arrived which was nice. Beautiful decor, great location for walking around afterwards. The one real downfall was communication. We called ahead to ask if we were able to use multiple coupons if we had separate checks, they said yes. Once the bill came we were told, no. (Manager allowed it saying it was ok only this time) Was told Birthday desserts were complimentary. (They were on the bill, Also fixed, but then told they normally don't do that) Was told Domestic beers are part of happy hour. Sam Adams was full price (?!?) Overall, good time."

  • "I've been to the Texas de Brazil in Texas and it was way better than the one in Pittsburg! We felt very rushed by our server. This is definitely not a relaxed restaurant! They want you to rush thru the salad bar and will only give you the opportunity to go thru once before they start slamming you with meat. Why do they bother with the red and green cards? We had red cards out (no meat now) while attempting to enjoy the salad bar, but once you are about 75% thru they start coming with the meat. If you decline one because there is no room on your plate, they never come back! We had green cards up for over 15 min and no one stopped by with meat. We finally had to ask our server & they grudgingly came back. The meat was very dry."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "My only problem was that I didn't have enough room to try all of the delicious food choices! What a nice change on food service! The staff was friendly and helpful! The food was well prepared and presented in an inviting fashion! My wife and I will be back, often!"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Gotta love it! Every thing is delicious! Must try if you haven't! It's pretty noisy so it's great for kids :)"

  • "I enjoyed myself at Texas de Brazil, but I'd prefer to give it an overall score of fair to good. We arrived a little early for our reservation so we had a drink at the bar. The bar tender did not seem like she wanted to be there at all and the Brazilian martini was ok. It didn't have much flavorful, besides alcohol. Our waitress was very nice and obviously new, which is fine. She was really nice. She rambled everything off so quickly I couldn't understand her. The salad bar wasn't anything to write home about. The meat was very flavorful, however I only new what each meat was by look and taste. The servers who brought each meat around spoke so softly that I had no idea what they were saying. I wouldn't return."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Despite having a reservation, we were not seated for ~30 minutes while walk in couples were getting tables. The hostess actively avoided making eye contact and didn't get us a table. Another hostess eventually seated us. Once seated, the food was great. The bacon wrapped filet mignon was excellent. Everything is served medium rare unless you request otherwise. Highly recommend for the food. The serving staff are very friendly."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "the restaurant has a unique idea, but the food is just okay - especially for the price you pay for dinner. The food reminded me of a mediocre hotel buffet. The meat was good - but some of it is just too rare and some was just fatty. As the night got busier, the service got worse. Disappointing and expensive - for 3 of us, one drink each - $178 without tip. The restaurant is pretty and is in a pretty setting at station square. It was very loud however. I won't go back."

  • "While previous visits to this particular restaurant have been delightful - this particular day was very disappointing. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "It was really good and fun. But I did feel like it was all very rushed. There was one drink menu for 7 people to look at so half of us had water only. We never got to try all the meats-the lamb never made it to our table. I would save this for a special occasion or go during the week. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Food was good and the salad bar was the best I ever had. The service was so-so. Our Waiter was trying to hard to be cool and must have told us 2 or 3 stories TWICE. The meats were great and there was a good selection. Great for Business Dinners when you can put it on an expense account."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "Nice salad bar selection and then a parade of really tasty meats -- beef, chicken,pork and lamb. All were terrific. Go hungry."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the delicious food. Of the meats, the house sirloin was a favorite. Lobster bisque was delicious. Wonderful variety to choose from on the salad bar. The service was excellent - very courteous, friendly, and helpful waiters. "

  • "my wife and I came for a 14 year wedding anniversary isand we now have a favorite restaurant we enjoyed every part of the experience and will definitely comeback again"
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "This is my 2nd time here and still love it. Went with a large group but with the large salad bar and food delivery everyone found many things they liked. If you have a large group this is the place to go because Pittsburgh still has not fully discovered this place so space is not an issue and the service is perfectly suited for it."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "First the service was excellent, but it took a number of requests to get a decent seat away from the front door even though alot of the tables were empty. The food was very good except some of the cuts of meat tended to be a bit salty. The salad bar was excellent and the Lobster Bisque was exceptional. There was plenty to choose from if you didn't want to partake in the meat carving extravaganza. Over all we we enjoyed the experience."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The service was good and friendly, but the food left a lot to be desired for the price. Additionally, we booked two weeks in advance - yet still were seated with our backs to a main server station. It was very uncomfortable."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The salad bar had an amazing spread. Not very kid friendly but my kids loved the bread. The meat selections were amazing! The servers game around frequently and we loved that the managers made their rounds asking if needed anything. When we told one that we hadn't tried the ribs, they made sure the server came by our table. It was a very busy evening, tables very close to each other, not a quiet romantic environment but my kids loved it! Would definitely recommend, make sure you come hungry! The location was perfect too."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This restaurant (and others of its type) feature "all you can eat" of a variety of beef, chicken, port, and lamb cuts simply grilled and simply delicious! Although Texas de Brazil is known for its meats, it features an awesome, fresh, salad bar that includes South American specialities."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "The food as always; very good. Our server; she was great!! The staff overall; awesome. The only thing negative to mention, we requested, due not having been offered, the beef ribs, a part of the menu. Getting the ribs served to our table, needless to say, it took far too long."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Although the food was good, the atmosphere was very impersonal and loud. The hostess seemed bored and the servers were rushed. One bright point was the bar....great drinks and the bartender was helpful and friendly. We will probably not return."

  • "If you love to taste as many flavors as possible when dining, this place fits that need. The salad bar is fabulous; the cheeses and cured meats are a meal that would satisfy any taste junkie. The hot meats (about 10 selections) were just delicious. One of us likes her meat as rare as possible, which she never gets. Here she got her choice of at least 5 different rare beef selections. She was a happy eater. It costs a lot, but you get a lot. If you don't eat much at a meal, don't go there. We were there when it was about 1/3 full, and the meat came out beautifully warm and spaced perfectly, as we were hungry, the meat came. Had a problem with sangria, too sweet, they took care of immediately. Nice job! Fun night of dining!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "When heading for the great selections at the soup/salad bar, remember to save plenty of room for the delicious and plentiful selections served for the main course. They were very accommodating in presenting beef cooked to our liking, as all four of us prefer beef that is at least "medium" or more well-done. And the desserts (if there is still room!) are also great. Our server prepared a "Happy Birthday" plate for the member of our party who was celebrating it."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The food quality is very good, and the service was warm but often unavailable. The biggest downside is that the place is exceedingly noisy."

  • "This was a very cool & different than the typical restaurant. I went with a group of 14 to celebrate a birthday. Our reservation was for 8:30 PM on a Saturday night. Unfortunately, we didn't get seated until 9:10. I realize it's a busy night but that's the whole point of reservations right? It was tough standing with cake, gifts, & 14 people. After we got our salad & sides the meats just kept coming. It felt like we were being really rushed. It was overwhelming to have so much food brought to the table right after we sat down. The food was very good though so it's hard to give this place a bad review. Maybe, going on a weeknight might have been a better first experience for everyone so we can manage our chip flipping (green to red) better."

  • "Food and customer service were excellent. Only cons are that the tables are a bit too close together and noise level was high... many times I couldnt hear our sever. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this place."
