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.

    Love the quality of the food on the salad bar. The lobster bliss soup was amazing. Meats were excellent. Yes the price is high, but the quality is much higher than the other Brazilian restaurants we have visited.

    I have been here twice. Loved the bacon wrapped fillet, top sirloin, beef ribs and bacon wrapped chicken breast and the lobster bisque was very good but the lamb chops were out of this world. Next time I go I'm saving more room for the lamb chops. This is a great place for a business meal as there is a little something for everyone.

    I have been to the City Creek location few times and it is great for special occasions and birthdays. I must say ..You MUST like meat. They kept it coming and we were never in need. Salad bar was a good arrangement and everyone in our Party left completely stuffed. I am not sure how we made it to desert..but we did. I think the Parm pork loin was my favorite...wait..maybe it was the sirloin.

    Excellent food! I loved the specialty lime aids for our non-drinkers. The buffet choices were excellent. The activity of the meats being brought out added a festive atmosphere to our group. But the highlight of the evening was Victoria, our server. I have never had such excellent service. Thank-you Victoria for make our evening wonderful! We were from out of state and eating before going to see Wicked at the Capitol theater. She made sure we were out the door on time, made sure we knew how to get there and had the perfect amount of attentiveness without being hovering. It was a perfect dining experience

    I was excited for Texas de Brazil, we had never been so we were interested to see how it would compare to other Brazilian steakhouses that we have been to. I like the inside of the restaurant, but it seemed cramped with all the waiters running around. It was extremely noisy, so it was very hard to have a solid conversation going. The bartenders must have been extremely busy or just plain slow as our drinks came out one by one and took nearly 30 minutes for some of them to even come. I didn't think the experience was that great for the price, and we were lucky to have half off coupons. It was good, but not great and we probably won't be returning anytime soon.

    This was a disappointment. I've been to another Brazilian steakhouse that had a much better salad bar, and dessert was not extra. I wouldn't mind this if it weren't so expensive. Dinner for 4 of us (one a 9 year old who didn't have any of the meat) the bill was close to $250.

    The food was better than other Brazilian restaurants, but more costly. Service? Amateur. Our water glasses were constantly empty, our table dirty with dropped food from clearing plates, and our server checked on us with a cleaning bottle in her hands-not elegant. When a manager noticed our dirty table, I overheard him telling a busboy "see that table over there...go clean it." While I appreciate the cleaning, I don't want our dirty table being the focus for the multiple tables between us and the manager. The thing that really gets me is the gratuity calculation that is generated AFTER tax. Why would I pay a server 15% (or less in this case) of the taxes that I need to pay? It's insane, and, frankly, dishonest. I will not return.

    Although you could eat well here as a vegetarian as the salad bar is spectacular....the variety of fresh endless quality beef is the highlight. The service is exceptional and the price is great for what you get. Dessert and drinks are extra but for $42 for all you can eat dessert is hard to fit in. This is one of my favorite places to go in Salt Lake City. Excellent for a special occasion or just to spoil yourself. Go hungry though!

    Ok my two daughters have been in Brazil for a couple of years and as such we are always trying out "Brazilian" places - I will say that this place has the best meats of anywhere. While $$$ - the quality of meats is superb and cooked to perfection. We have gone several times and really like the atmosphere and whole experience. We have tried other places but this one is like dining at a 4 star restaurant vs 2 or 3 star. Reservations are preferred but we have been able to walk in here and there. Save room for desert to share - they are amazing! Remember to pace yourself - its not a race but a marathon! :)

    I rated 3 stars because instructions they gave us for dining specified that we each use our "stop" red flag, and our green "ready for more food" flags to indicate our food desires. However, the servers totally ignored them. While dining and trying to converse, the servers with their tasty, tasty meats, constantly interrupted conversations to ask if we wanted this-or-that. Irritating!

    We went on Saturday night and the place was dead. We love Brazilian Churrascarias and were excited to try this new spot. We were hoping that the experience would be better than the competition given they were charging double the price. Well, that wasn't the case. The meat was average, the salad bar was below par compared to the competitions and it doesn't justify paying twice as much. Also, the waiter failed to mention that the limeades weren't free refills and kept offering to bring more without telling us. Not a good experience and dropped over $100 for me and the wife.

    We dine at Texas de Brazil often at the Fairfax, VA location, so we decided to take friends to the Salt Lake City restaurant during our visit there. It was the first time we had dined at another Texas de Brazil location, and we were happy to find that the food was just as great, and although the service was friendly, it was a little slower. The restaurant itself was smaller but inviting and comfortable. The noise level was lower than in Fairfax.

    TdB is always consistent and is the best of the chain Brazilian Steakhouses. The staff here was probably the most friendly we have experienced. Most were bit South American, which may be why. Also, this one was not nearly as crowded as most TdBs we've been to across the country. Highly recommended.

    Had a reservation at 7:15PM, was finally shown a table at 8:22. Restaurant was double book, and blamed OpenTable for the delays. They appeared to have double the number of tables in the dining area, as it was difficult to move around and not bump another patron. Getting back and forth to the salad bar was a chore each time. Drinks took forever to get, even the tap water we had to ask for a couple of times. Fortunately the food was actually very good once you were able to eat. May decide to try again and see if service improves.

    When comparing Texas De Brazil to other similar types of restaurants like Tucanos or Rodizio, Texas cost twice as much and has half the selection of meats and side bar items. The service was poor. I have made reservations at Rodizio and Tucanos on Valentines day in the past and they honor the reservation time, even if it is a very busy night. We had a 7:00 PM reservation and we were not seated until 8:00 PM. It took over 20 minutes for my drink to arrive, This was the first time I have left a Brazilian restaurant still hungry. We just got tired of waiting for more meats to come by our table. We had to hunt down our waiter so that we could pay, and go. We were going to order dessert but feared if we did it would take another 20 mins

    I am not going to go on and on about how bad it was although I could. We were not seated until over 60 minutes past our reservation. Our table rocked back and forth the whole time. Our waitress never even brought our drinks and then tried to charge us for them. It was almost comical how bad it really was. I was embarrassed that i had picked this place for Valentines Day. In short the food was mediocre and the service was the worst I have ever witnessed. I will never go back. There are much better Brazilian steak houses in Salt Lake for half the price.

    We had a great time at Texas de Brazil. This was our first foray into Brazilian Steakhouses and this one did not diappoint. The salad bar was beautiful with some unique selections. The meat was served continuously once we indicated we were ready. We were served over 10 different kinds of meat. All were sizzling hot and beautifully prepared. I would not say this is a restaurant for romantic alone time due to all the activity surrounding the servers and the pace of the meal.

    Although the food was good, it wasn't much different than the other Brazilian BBQ places in town and cost more than double. We seemed to get lost in the crowd and the servers couldn't find their way to our table. We sat for quite a while waiting for them to bring things and finally to get our check. The service was not what I would have expected.
