A word from Texas de Brazil - San Antonio
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.

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I tried Texas de Brazil for our one year anniversary. It was such a great experience. The valet was totally worth it. We just drive right up to the building and jumped out of the car and didn't have to worry about parking downtown. The servers were great. They remembered how we liked our meats cooked and were dry willing to answer any questions. Everyone was very attentive. I'm pretty sure my water glass never reache half full it was refilled so frequently. The food was amazing! My favorite was the house special but everything I tasted was amazing! We would totally go back and would recommend it for anyone who finds the self in Texas. We were able to sit and just relax and enjoy the experience. No one rushed us at all. Love!"

  • "Outstanding 1st visit! I was a bit perplexed because I didn't know what to do next. LOL I felt like a kid in a candy store. I was over joined with excitement! The salad bar was a sight for sore eyes. The red wine I chose was great for my palate and THE LAMB CHOPS, BEEF RIBS and GARLIC PICANAH were the story of my evening! The service was without a question, top notch! I felt like a celebrity!!! I will recommend this restaurant to all! A must visit!"

  • "Food was great but I would not go back. I prefer Chama Gaucha over Texas De Brazil. The same food items kept coming around and that was when they came. I did spend a period with a empty plate waiting for service. I did not care for the atmosphere either and lighting was way to dark. We went for our anniversary and I guess I expected them to acknowledge it the way Chama Gaucha did and it wasn't. Overall I feel Chama Gaucha was friendly and service was better."

  • "Make sure you come hungry! The salad bar has a great selection and is always fresh. But you don't go to a Brazilian Steakhouse for the salad. TDB offers a wide array of meats that are served to you on a continual basis by the gauchos. The meat is well seasoned with sea salt and can be cooked to order if you don't like medium rare red meat or if you prefer light seasoning. The picana, bacon wrapped filet mignon, Brazilian sausage, garlic steak and lamb chops are my favorites and are consistently exceptional. Make sure you try the coconut/pineapple limeaid, and have the banana cream pie spiked with either the vanilla or almond liquer for a tasty dessert treat. TDB is on the expensive side, but is an enjoyable treat for the whole family!"

  • "I only go to Fogo de Chao, but this place had better reviews for the San Antonio locations. I wish we didn't. There are fewer meats than Fogo and Texas de Brazil had mashed potatoes at your table instead of fried polenta. Not authentic at all. The biggest food disappointment was the pan de queijo. Whoever made them in the kitchen obviously has never had authentic pan de queijo. They were too small, very dense, and lacking in cheese. Normally these are golf ball sized and airy. There were also women servers, which Fogo doesn't have because women are never servers in Brazil. The service was terrible. Our waitress rarely checked on us. It was such an insult that she said "Here's your cheesy bread." IT IS CALLED PAN DE QUEIJO!"

We were very pleased with everything they had to offer. Our server was the best. He explained how the restaurant worked and was very courteous. We are already planning when we can return."

  • "This was my families first time to eat at Texas de Brazil. Everything was excellent. Food, service and atmosphere were far above the line. One small hint, if you have never been there, make sure your server explains the details of how everything works (slowly) so you will know what to do. Our server gave us instructions so quickly we weren't sure what to do at first. Overall, no complaints....just awesome!"

  • "With this restaurant, you can get what you pay for. Averaging around $50 per plate, it's a good thing it's all you can eat. They have an excellent salad bar, and the lobster bisque is simply to die for, but the real star here is all the grilled meat. I'd advise holding to one bowl of soup, skipping the salad bar, and just going for the grilled meat. I believe there are 17 different cuts to be sampled. Everyone has their favorites, and there is probably something for everyone. The staff is incredible, the food is outstanding, and the atmosphere is just amazing."

  • "when you go to texas de brazil you better be hungry. their salad bar is extensive. also try the lobster bisque.the meat selection is plentiful. my favorites are the picania, the lamb chops and the beef ribs. and if you have room left, try. their deserts ... especially the papaya cream.if you are bringing first time guest make sure that you ask of the main dining room so that they can watch the wine angel perform. we like to take out of town visitors to texas de brazil for a special experience."

  • "Meats were outstanding. Nothing was labeled at the salad bar or soup station. Would have liked more roasted veggie options than peppers. Potato sides were uninspired. Make smashed potato special if you can."

  • "While searching for an upscale Easter lunch, Texas de Brazil's name appeared on a list of nicer restaurants in San Antonio. Well-staffed and nicely appointed, we were among the first to be seated, visit the salad bar and enjoy the roving waiters with swords filled with roasted meats. The service was top-notch, particularly for my wife who is gluten-free. The manager even walked her around the various salad bar offerings to explain which items contained gluten and which didn't, which my wife apprediated. Overall, the food was terrific. The service was the best. The atmosphere and timing was perfect. The price was surprisingly in line with some of the other traditional holiday brunch offerings at the Omni, Hyatt and other restaurants. "

  • "This was our first time to this type of restaurant and we were very pleased by the experience and the food. My only recommendation is do not fill-up with the decadent salad bar or you will be unable to enjoy the variety of all the meats."

  • "Man every 3 seconds we had the servers show up with delicious cuts of meat and it was all extremely delicious. It was the first time that my family and I had been to this place and we were floored thinking we wouldn't have enough food really put a hurt on us when we couldn't keep up. My dad and I can eat giant steaks without blinking and I, but even we had to tap out shortly after starting. A word to the wise eat light all day if ur going to this place. As well as if ur a serious conivore stay away from the salad bar. The have 13 different cuts of meats I think I only had 11 and my dad had 9 or 10 so be ready to eat."

  • "The food was tasty but the experience was the highlight. There wine selection was spectacular with a wine angel choosing the wine bottles on a wire giving a show each time a bottle was requested. There was a large party near us and the noise level was so loud it was difficult to have a discussion with my husband across the table."

  • "Keeping this simple: although we made a reservation we had to wait another 30 minutes past it. However, when we finally got our table, our server was really prompt, kept making sure our drinks were refreshed and she made solid food recommendations. The food, especially the meat selections were hot, delicious, and never ending! It was an important family celebration and the restaurant overall didn't disappoint."

  • "Wife and I enjoyed a night together in this wonderful restaurant. I felt a little over dressed compared to the other diners, however, they were under dressed for the atmosphere. Sangria was awesome. Bought the VIP diner card because, I will be back."

  • "Several previous reviews of Texas de Brazil in San Antonio were negative about lack of attention, few number of visits to the table by meat servers etc etc. First the salad bar is awesome and I'm not usually focused on salad bars. The bar had every thing imaginable including $15/pound prociutto, lobster bisque, palm hearts and hundreds of more items. I may go back there just for the $24 open salad bar. Now the price for me, a person well beyond my years of being able to eat like a colleg kid, the $45 dinner/salad bar price was way high as I'm sure I ate less than half that in pure value. However, what I had was awesome. All the meat was perfectly prepared and had more attention from waitors/servers than you can imagine. U Need to go."

Everything was absolute perfection, from the vast variety of the salad/soup bar to the succulent meats, the flawlessly mixed cocktails & wine selection, the beautiful wine angel and our server Holly who helped make the entire night shine. The lamb was superb! The lobster bisque was exceptional. Special mention must be paid to the bartender who is not only a sweetheart, he makes a mean chocolate martini! We will return over and over, guaranteed."

  • "Texas de Brazil stands out in it's niche. The restaurant is extremely attractive, service is excellent, and the food is first class. Other restaurants with a similiar theme don't seem to "pop" like Texas de Brazil. The salad bar, with it's signature lobster bisque, is always fresh and overflowing with ingredients for any taste. Extras, like real bacon and mint sauce, are always present. While we didn't have "exotic" drinks (a house Magarita and White Russian), the bar turned out two superb cocktails. Well done! We'll be back!"
