    I LOVE meat. This place was absolutely perfect for me. Chicken legs, bacon wrapped chicken, lamb chops, filet mignon, bacon wrapped filet, wow. I don't think I was ever more full after eating there. The chocolate mousse cake for dessert topped it off perfectly as well. The service was excellent as well, no complaints there. At around $60 per person for the full dinner and a dessert, I really think the value was great and I will surely be back.

    Texas de Brazil is the place we go for special occasion. The food is excellent and the variety of meat is also amazing. Normally the service is also excellent but this time we did not get great service. I think that our server was not fully train to the normal procedures of Texas. First as we are starting dinner he brings a pile of 6 plates and leaves them on the table. He said it was to be used later. I had to ask him to remove the plates because it was bothering me. Then normally, the server brings the potato and the banana as soon as you start, again I had to remind our server to bring us the side dishes. Normally our server inquires several time during the meal if we need anything, this time our server was nowhere to be found

    Let me start by saying the overall experience was great. But there's room for improvement. We had reservations for 7:45pm. When we arrived, it wasn't crowded and we could plainly see a lot of open tables but we still had to wait about 10min. We didn't mind but what was the point of the reservation and the fact that nobody else was there waiting for a table and there were about 10-15 open tables that were ready & set for customers. Some of the meat was very salty but you could ask for unsalted meat, I would definitely go for the unsalted next time. But the waiter we had was great and the overall food was very good. The bananas foster pie is AWESOME! I would go back just for that pie alone! It is a tad overpriced but I would go again

    The place overall all is put together really well. The location is great, the ambiance is good, the waiter and servers were guick and on point. The meat was served medium rare and seasoned perfectly. It was not my first time at a churrascaria but it was my first time at Texas de Brazil and it certainly won't be last.

    This was our 2nd time here. Things weren't the same. Our mashed potatoes were cold and the little rolls were not baked enough so the inside was doughy. The meat was not done enough. A slice on the outside was still red on the opposite side. This couldn't be eaten by me. When I asked for well done, not many meats were brought to me and they were burnt on the edges. So this dinner that had 6 of us was expensive and not the best. I am not sure if I will be back. Thanks for listening Janet Myers 412-462-6849

    If you are looking for a variety of quality food items to have in one dining experience, Texas de Brazil is the place to go. The salad bar is extensive and frequently refurbished, and the variety there is enough to satisfy any number of food cravings. If you add the full dinner to include the grilled meats, the experience is outstanding. Try (everything!) but especially the prime rib and lamb chops. The waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable, making for a very lovely evening.

    It was my first time dining at Texas de Brazil. I took my mom and grandparents for a special dinner. The ambiance is beautiful! The wait staff was very nice and accommodating. The food was delicious. I like the fact that we were able to try several different meats. I like having a variety. The sides were also good. The Brazilian Lemonada was my drink of choice, and it was excellent. The only problem is that it wasn’t explained that there were no free refills on any of their drinks, including pop. So I ended up spending $15 on 3 lemonades. I was a little upset about that. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience and I would go again.

    The place is great, excellent environment and food was Ok, but the price is too high. I took my wife, my two kids and myself. we $280.00 with the tip. With that amount of money I can go to Morton's or Ruth Chris, have the best steak in town, eat like a king and still not get that high check for a group of 4 people. The wine list is over inflated. Some of the names I knew and I have some of those at home and they are not that pricey as they are at the Restaurant. For business is great, but not for families. And the salad bar is not that good. Churrascarias in Brazil have 10 times more choices at the salad bar.

  • Why We Love Texas de Brazil

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    Texas de Brazil is extra special to our family on a personal level. My daughter in law is Brazilian which now includes my one yr old grandson!! We love the atmosphere, the variety of foods at the most lavish salad bar, and the unique experience of having carvers deliver their specialized meat directly to our table. It only becomes a problem when we have forgotten to turn our small green disc over to red! Thank you for bringing a bit of Brazil to our home here in Pittsburgh! See you again soon. Ps.. reserving our table on line was so fun and efficient. We will use that tool again in the future!

    First. The food was good, not great. The leg of lamb was some of the best I have ever had, but all of the cuts of steak tasted the same. They tasted like salt, and that's it. Then the manager informed me that I couldn't use the $25 coupon that they emailed me along with a gift card! Isn't a gift card to be tendered the same as cash?? Average food paired with unexplainable policies will cause me not to go back. It will also cause me not to suggest it to friends.

The service was impeccable, food was delicious, and everyone left feeling very satisfied (and full.) Highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys copious amounts of meat, or has been to another churrascaria.

    Would not recommend for lge groups, way to expensive for the buffet feel, put more variety on the salad bar; for those allergic to seafood they are restricted to one side of the salad bar. And the chicken is way to dry, and the seating is too crowded. Add more meat variety too skewers.

Upon making my reservation I noted that it was my husbands birthday and every server that came to our table wished him a Happy Birthday. You don't find that in every restaurant.

    The meats were cooked to perfection! They were flavorful and tender! Everything else was gravy so to speak. We were stuffed when we left. Only downside is that you must stuff yourself to feel you got your money's worth at $45/plate. Also it was disappointing that the coupon I got for signing up for email club is not good on weekends!

    it was my first time there. Brought my husband for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere is lacking any privacy, felt like a fast food place. Food was good, drinks a bit overpriced, service pretty good, but it was so loud that we couldn't even hear our server. For $45 a person , I expected a little bit more. Not coming there for a special occasion. May come back for steaks though.

    I went here for a special dinner date having only been to one other Brazilian Steakhouse and my date had never been to one before. Not only did the server brief us on the ins and outs of Steakhouse dining but she made sure we had everything we needed while giving us ample space to talk and carry on with our date. The spacing of tables seems a bit tight but the Gauchos weave in and out frequently and fluidly enough to leave you feeling like you're the only table in the house. The cuts of meat were fresh, tender and absolutely delicious, varying from chicken, lamb, pork to steak. No matter what your choice in food is, without a doubt, Texas de Brazil has something for you.
