    wonderful salad bar selection as always and the meats are superb, my waitress Nicole S. was attentive as if I were a table of 10 not just one, the Gaucho's need to only be a bit more aware of people who are alone at a table but were kind and polite when serving me. This was a treat for me for my birthday and was thoroughly enjoyable I will be back soon.

    Overall experience was just OK! Service was excellent! The meat from Pork and Chicken was very salty! The tenderloins were Chewey and not medium rare! The sausages were OK-Spicy! The best meat was the Serlioinand top Serloin steaks which were very flavorful and cooked perfectly! Dessert was very good! The salad bar had exotic type foods-would have preferred basic salad ingredients in one section! Soups were OK! I would definitely not pay $45 for this meal! I would hire a secret shopper type person to keep you aware of food tastes!

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. I had made reservations and everything was lovely as far as food service and everything goes. My only complaint is that we were seated out on the porch, in an outdoor setting it would have been lovely, but we were in a mall and right by the stairs where people were entering and exiting the restaurant. Food service was quick our server Courtney was excellent. And everything was so good.

    Everything was great, service was great and consistent. Food was very good. It is definitely an establishment I would visit again. Managers stopped at the table to inquire how everything was going. Our table waiter was attentive and thorough. The servers were polite and efficient. All in all a great experience. The food on the "side bar/salad bar" was fresh and COLD. The meats were hot and flavorful. Have nothing but good things to say about Texas de Brazil and will definitely recommend to friends.

    Texas de Brazil is a favorite. The salad/sides bar alone has enough to keep you occupied and finding new and fun dishes to try. But the variety of meat - beef, chicken, pork, beef, lamb (did i mention beef yet?) - prepared to perfection, that keeps coming to your table to choose from is fantastic. After experiencing all this - it's hard to save room for dessert. But, the dessert menu has variety and is delicious. The service has always been friendly and attentive.

My favorite meat was the filet. Done to perfection. If you left not full it was your own fault. A COMPLETE dining experience! There were three of us and EVERYONE was well pleased.

    My family of 3 went to Texas de Brazil in Syracuse for a special meal to close out a busy day in Syracuse. We had reservations and would recommend it if you are eating there on a weekend. We had never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse so we were not sure what to expect. We asked a lot of questions to our servers and they were very helpful. The salad bar and hot options were very tasty. The meats were also very good, of course, there were some we liked more than others. We are big lamb fans and did not like the sausage. You need to pace yourself so that you can try different things and still have room for some more of your favorites.

    This is nice for a change of pace. We have been to several different Brazilian Steak House restaurants. The Texas de Brazil chain is not on the top of my list, but still very nice. At $45 per person plus drinks and desert, it can add up quickly. The cheapest bottle of wine was $36, and most were much higher. If you sign upm to receive their coupons, you can at least $10, but only on a weekday. Our Server, Judy, was excellent, the food was pretty good, but not exceptional. There was so much noise we had a difficult time hearing the servers. I would go back, but not in a rush to.

    Food was outstanding, always a great experience. Very impressed with the service. One person in our group didn't want the rock salt added to the meat and they cooked his food separately. Even the manager came over and obviously was aware of the special request. I like to be able to have conversation while eating, but the noise level made that difficult. Maybe it was the acustics of the room.

    The 16th anniversary special seduced us back to Texas de Brazil. We went to enjoy a bunch of meat and weren't disappointed. Tried most of the beef items, pork, chicken and lamb chops. The "salad bar" which is way more than just salad is excellent. When you go back for seconds instead of just diving into the meat, you know it is pretty good. The one item that does not do well with the open fire cooking they do is pork ribs - they need to be slow cooked all day so that the meat falls off the bone. We found the table a little small and the service could have been a little more attentive, but overall we had a great time.

    My wife and I finally got to have a getaway without the kids and when we were in Syracuse decided to eat at this restaurant. A little over priced (Similar restaurants in Ottawa are only $35) which is about $10 cheaper. My wife and I asked for our meats to be medium to medium well (without blood) and it took them about 30min to get that right and when they did, it was med-rare on the inside and charred on the out. I have been to many steakhouses and medium to med-well can be cooked without burning. Anyways, it was not a pleasant experience for what we paid for our food!

    I don't like buffets as there is too much food to eat. The salad bar was fresh and good. The meats were tough and I thought I was going to choke on many bites. Bone in chicken was surprising....boneless would have been much better for the price. I don't think I will return.

    On a recent Saturday night our party of four went to our Syracuse Texas de Brazil to celebrate our friend's birthday. We were immediately greeted at the door and taken to our table in less than 2 minutes. Our waiter, Sean, was professional, courteous, and very helpful. He was always within a few steps away and made sure that we had everything that we needed. He remembered what meats was each guests favorites and made sure that the guachos made return trips. We capped off the evening's celebration with excellent desserts and will definitely be back again!!!! I would highly recommend Texas de Brazil to all my business associates. I always bring my business clients out to dinner when they come to visit my plant!

    We went recently (party of four) to celebrate our son's birthday on a Saturday night. If you sign up for special deals they send a $25 off coupon to use as a gift however the coupon is not good on Saturdays. Unfortunately my husband works out of town so Saturday was the only day that we could go. One of the people in our party was a vegetarian so she just ordered the salad bar, and the rest of us ordered the dinners. Besides dinner, we ordered 2 cocktails, 2 cups of coffee, and 3 dessert (one of which was on the house for my son's birthday since they wouldn't let us use the birthday coupon). The total check with tax and tip was $270. The meats were under-seasoned and the salad bar was just ok. We won't be going there again.

    Eating at Texas de Brazil was quite the experience! You should definitely come hungry - you will leave stuffed! The system they have is wonderful in giving you time and a break from the meats coming to your table. Somehow, we never go the same cut of meat twice - I have no idea how they kept track of that! Over-all a very good experience.
