A word from Texas de Brazil - Tampa
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
  • "Brought my date to this fine restaurant, because she had never been to this type of eatery. She was amazed at the level of service and the quality of the food. Also the decor was fantastic. Her favorite meats were the Brazilian sausage and the Lobster Bisque"

  • "Don't let the dinner price of $44.95 ($25 for lunch) scare you away. Its worth EVERY penny! You begin with a huge, amazing salad area w/over 50 unique items (salmon, sushi, antipasti, etc) as well other salad favorites. A "hot bar" of homemade potatoes au gratin, sautéed mushrooms, soups, fresh lobster bisque & fluffy rice on this visit. Then the server brings this incredible bread with delicious cheese baked inside...addicting! When you're ready, every kind of delicious, tender, flavorful meat is constantly brought to you on 3ft skewers. Servers slice meat off onto your plate. No words describe how delicious it is! Plus garlic mashed potatoes, as much as you like & the service is always impeccable. A true dining EXPERIENCE! Treat yourself!"

  • "Arrived with party of 10 reservations had been made for days table not ready, hostess rude, waited for 15 minutes while they prepared table. Only 1 waiter for table not engaging and only filled water glasses for 1/2 the table. It is very loud and the waiter was a soft talker, that does not work well. We went to salad bar and before we were halfway through our salad the meat started coming. The drinks we had ordered and the bottle of wine were not delivered yet and that took too long. The meat service and quality was excellent, the side dishes arrived 30-minutes into the meal. We all ate ourselves into a meat coma. While the food was good, the service and the timing of serving the drinks, the side dishes and the rude hostess not worth it."

  • "We arrived at 9:15 pm we immediatly got seated and got menu explaining pricing. Then we had our server francisco explain how it works . We then went to the salad bar which was amazing. Then the fun began meats and chicken and sausages came flying to our table. I will say stick to water as either way is less filling than soda and as if that's not a good enough reason they charge for each soda $2.85.. Another thing i wish they had more meats to serve but either way very good place. Be careful not to over indulge in salad bar lol"

  • "The marinade used for all beef taste the same. Parmasean chicken and veal basically had a lot of parmasean cheese that's it. Salad bar was good soup very good. Went for our anniversary and we left very disappointed. Sat and waited 12 minuets before anyone noticed we were done. After I paid my bill, I Voiced concerns to a manager and he seemed to care less."

  • "Not my first visit but worst service ever. Presented coupons told we couldnt use since one of group had a birthday coupon. No plates given for meat - had to get them ourselves. Took 20 minutes to clear used dishes. Told me I could reuse the same soup bowl if I wanted to. Sat with unfilled water glasses most of dinner. Had to ask other guys to get someone with meat I wanted. Then waited another 10 minutes for them to come around. Not my fault I only like one kind of meat :( After server took on a "big party" we never saw her again until she brought the bill. REALLY??? Good thing we didnt go on a busy night."

  • "This place is a new favorite. They put a new meaning to buffet style. Everything is so fresh and delicious. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the manager is always nearby asking everyone how they're doing. A bit pricey but very worth it!"

  • "Look, I've been to these types of restaurants before. You get all dolled up and take your best gal (in my case my 16 yr. old daughter) and hope she is impressed. Along the way you give her some culture about how the "other half lives". I was mistaken, but specifically on this night. The service was weak and the server practically brittle. She delayed in getting our drinks, failed to check on us and with it being my birthday expected a lot more. Now, I have a theory, but I'll keep that to myself. Overall the food and ambiance were great but service not what is expected. Sure, I'd go back but I would avoid that server."

  • "Always a go-to for when we want consistent quality in a nice atmosphere and good service. They do it well. Very good wine selection and full bar. If you like meat and an outstanding salad bar, this can't be beat. Warning though, it's a very nice restaurant with no dress code and very family friendly so you will see people dressed across the spectrum - from shorts and t-shirts to dresses and jackets. Like think it's worth the price for a nice night out without spending like crazy but an amazing deal with you buy the discount card. $60 and you 12 dinners at 1/2 price. Pays for itself by the third dinner. Of course, you can only use it Sun-Thursday and non-holidays (incl Mothers and Fathers Day). Still, you really can't go wrong here."

  • "The restaurant is nice and the food is delicious. Unfortunately you can't have a conversation with your dinner partner as the place is incredibly noisy and loud. The hardwood and tile decor, although very stylish and pleasing to look at, does absolutely nothing to dampen the noise when the dining room is busy. My husband and I sat next to each other and still had to close in order to have a conversation. It was absolutely delicious. I wish the servers had spaced out a little in bringing us selections. Literally the minute we flipped the disks to green we had 4 servers with offerings. It was just a little too fast to be looking at choices when you hadn't had a chance to sample what was on already on your plate."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "My only complaint was that it was very cold in the Restaurant. I know it's Tampa and extremely warm outside, but it was extremely cold inside. It was cold enough to require a sweatshirt by my wife and one of my daughters."

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Let me begin by saying that this was quite possibly the best meal I've ever had.. Filet mignon that you could cut with a fork, an outstanding selection of meats and cheeses, and the best rice I've ever had. However, our waitress was terrible and we couldn't hear a word she said. She came to our table once the entire meal, left us with empty glasses, and didn't bring us the check for 30 mins post-dinner. We also had to wait 20 mins for the manager to come approve our birthday certificate."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "This place is basically a joke. The tables are cramped and I left with meat juice stains all over me and my belongings! The food was very SALTY!! There are much better places for $50 per person plus alcohol and dessert and places with better quality food!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I can't say enough about how much I love Texas de Brazil. I took my husband for Father's Day (but we went the day after so it wouldn't be so crowded) and the food was perfect. So much of everything, so delicious. I left in a near food coma and knocked out the moment I got home. Definitely not something you can do all the time, but great for a special occasion."

  • "I was told their salad bar was so amazing that I would be happy not eating meat if I wanted to and there was such a variety in amazing meat that I would be overwhelmed. I found neither to be accurate. I love a good salad bar more than your average bear, and this one left a lot to be desired. The "fresh artisanal bread" that they advertise on their website was non existent. Who wants a "salad bar" where the only salad you can actually have is only lettuce and dressing? There were no toppings. The meat was "ok". We were offered flank steak 6 times, sirloin once, chicken Parmesan (super dry), chicken wrapped in bacon (super dry), and BBQ ribs that had very little meat. I feel like I got very very little for my money. I was very disappointed."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Texas de Brazil is worth the trip. This was the second time we have been. This time the meat seemed saltier than the first time. This visit occurred right when the restaurant opened so I am not sure whether this is why the meat was saltier. The staff has been phenomenal both times. They are pleasant and happy. "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We have gone there a lot. But this year it has deteriorated so we are not likely to go back. The meat just isn't as good anymore. It is way too loud to hear any conversation at the table. Not worth it anymore"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "I personally picked this myself for Mother's Day. I was excited because I wanted to see if it was all that it was cracked up to be. The meat (you must love meat) was delicious. But there is only so much meat a person can take. The salad bar is amazing. Lots of stuff there but don't eat too much. Save yourself for the more expensive cuts of meat. Very expensive. Note to self (and maybe you): Leave the kids home! "

  • "Our server Matt was extremely attentive and he made sure we left without needing anything. food was very good and I was very pleased that my Brazilian guests loved it."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The ambience, food and bar staff were very good. We used a $25 birthday coupon which helped. The server was only ok and the 2 female greeters were not very pleasant. The meat was excellent and cooked just the way I like it - medium rare and seasoned. It is a bit difficult to get it done any other way. All in all it was an enjoyable evening. We will come again when we are craving meat!"

  • "Food was delicious. A bit costly. I would go more often if they lowered the price. There is no way you can eat 45.00 worth of food. I had a 25.00 off coupon for 2 would not go without the coupon. Just costs too much."

  • "My partner and I were visiting Tampa. And we decided to make the drive to Texas De Brazil. It was worth it. The food was great. We were stuffed by the end of the meal. Everything was amazing. The server, when we asked for a nice Cabernet, brought us back a very smooth and delicious Cabernet. Obviously, they know what they're doing."

  • "Wide assortments of meat ranging from cured sausages to filet migon. Served off a skewer. Turn your card to green and indulge in as much of the meat as you can handle. Turn to red to slow down the pace and enjoy the salad bar or table accompaniments. Everything was great, some things (i.e. Lamb and shrimp salad) I did not have a taste for, but others may find perfectly pleasing. Overall the service was very good and Paco, our main server, was outstanding. Expect to spend over $100 for two with drinks and do NOT skip the dessert. Brazillian Cheesecake was one of the best my wife and I have ever had."
