  • "It was hard to have a conversation because even when the whole tables cards were on red we were constantly interrupted. The chicken and pork were on the dry side. All the beef and seafood were great. The waiter will presume you are having meat so make sure if your only getting a salad they take your card away."

  • "Between the fantastic concept of an all you can eat buffet that does not require you to leave the table, unless you want to enjoy the salad bar, is great. 14 cuts of meat from different animals all at your beck and call, and the service was amazing, we were never left waiting for help, it was always right there. Highly recommend!"

  • "Of all the locations that my wife and I have dined at on special occasions, this has to be tops. The price was affordable. The food was great. The service was wonderful. The reason I know this to be so is because my wife (the pickiest critic that I know) said so. Please keep it up and don't change a thing."

  • "Great food, great staff and newly found favorite restaurant! I actually have passed this place more times than I can count, but had no idea of what it had to offer. The meat is seasoned really well and very moist and tender. There's no skimping here. The staff was very attentive and made sure everything we needed was supplied. There is also complimentary valet who were also quick to bring us our car at the end of our night. The hostess who greeted us was exceptional. We had a wait about 15 minutes to be seated even though I'd made a reservation, but she was very nice about it and even came over to our table to apologize while we waited for the check! I will definitely go back......SOON."

  • "This resturant would rank in the bottom third of Houston area Brazilain resturants. Ambiance and salad bar were good but the meat was hit or miss"

  • "Flank steak is dry, shrimp are not juicy, salmon was very dry, baby beef was excellent, (No prime rib?), lamb very good, all else fair, salad bar good,"

  • "I thought this restaurant was overpriced and noisy - not a nice relaxing atmosphere. Dishes clattering all the time, slow service."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Loved this restaurant, it was a little less pricey than Fogo de Chao, but same quality. Delicious. They also have Salmon and shrip. But their Salad bar needs improvement. They also give you a coupon, which Fogo de Chao does not. Over all it was a wonderful experience."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Came here to try bc the other 3 brazilian steakhouses were booked. Took time to get the cuts you want. I like the house special so had to wait a awhile to get the same cut refill. The guy that brought the meat seems annoyed that I asked for the same cut 3 times. I have never had this attitude or wait time at texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao. Meat was also underseasoned. Overall I'm very disappointed."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The atmosphere was nice and the waiter very friendly. Request took too long to arrive, such as my drink. The quality of the meat wasn't the best and lacked flavor. The salmon and shrimp were excellent. I would not go back due to the quality of the meat."

  • "Overall excellent rating! Our reservation was taken right on time and we were immediatly showed to our table. Staff was super courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. Food was excellent, as always, coming out hot and fresh, seasoned just right and to the style we requested. The deserts were outstanding, as well as the Brazilian cocktails. All -in-all, it was a super dining experience."

  • "Amazing salad bar. And mouth watering selections of cuts of beef, pork, chicken, lamb. wow. You'll have a hard time turning down the waiters that bring out all this food. The chocolate moose cake is heavenly. Amazing is all I can say."

  • "As the title of this review indicates, I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at Tradicao! I am a long term Fogo de Cao patron and did not believe another restaurant could provide the same level of service, not to mention delicious food. I was wrong! Tradicao is better than Fogo in every way and I will be returning to that restaurant every chance I get."

  • "My family visit to Tradicao for Sunday Brunch was a wonderful dining experience. The overall customer service was excellent. The manager and staff were very attentive and efficient and the food was delicious. In regards to the food, the meats were tender and tasty, but a bit salty. If the salt is cut down a notch, the taste would be just perfect. The salad bar was well stocked and everything was fresh and tasty. The side dishes tasted home-made, especially the fried bananas! This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion!"
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "I took my wife to Tradicao for her 50th birthday. She loved the entire experience. The wait staff were attentive, asking and supplying the many choices we requested. Our lead waiter brought out an excellent dessert decorated for her birthday. My wife felt like a queen - exactly what I wanted to give her. The food was excellent."

  • "Came here for New Years Eve. Have heard of this place but never been till now. We showed up and were seated right away. The salad bar was nice but could use a little more to it. Then you flip your sign thing over and the fun begins. So much food and all the food served was very good. I enjoyed this place and will be back here many more times. Must try place."

  • "Everything I had was cooked perfectly. Service was great and very friendly."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "The meat was good. The hot sides were horrible. The mash potatoes were instant and lacked flavor. I don't get the cooked banana as a side dish. You mainly paid $43 per person for meat. The margaritas was watered down and the desserts were over priced. They charged $9 for a piece of cake and was not worth it at all. All the servers were really nice."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The food was incredible. So fresh, tender and flavorful with so many options PLUS the food never stops coming. Equally as impressive was the amazing service and staff. My fiance and I had never experienced a Brazilian restaurant and it really is a unique experience. I would definitely recommend this for a special occasion or simply a great place for date night."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We were there on Christmas evening and the restaurant was nearly full which probably contributed to the hectic atmosphere and why we had to wait ten minutes for bread. They had run out, but who needs bread anyhow with that much food? The salad bar was one of the most extensive I have seen. The service was excellent. We expected the desserts to be included with the price of the meal. The hostess was cordial and most helpful in answering our questions. This was our first experience there."

  • "I have visited several times and this visit I was extremely disappointed. The service was limited and the waiters were not detail oriented. Example, they ask me for my drink order, but not my wife of my friends wife. In another occasion, we asked for specific meat cut, which never came. Again on the dessert, they asked my but not my friend for dessert. It seem they were in a hurry and not caring for service. We pause from eating, within seconds they were cleaning the table like... please leave. Not returning... I had a party of 8 professional adults."

  • "I have eaten in many Brazilian Steak House's. This is not the best or the worse. We were seated very quickly for our reservation. The food was ok. The service on the meats was good, but a server did not refill our drinks and we had to ask someone to remove our plates. The website said there was hot foods on the salad bar, but there was not. We went at lunch on a Friday in December so it was very crowded. There were empty dishes on the salad bar. The meat was good, but I have had much better. The shrimp was very good and different from most places. With tip and tea it was about $40 for lunch. What I expected but I thought it was pricey for the quality."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "Food, service, and the theater of a Brazilian steakhouse combined for a great holiday lunch experience for my team. Don't let the odd location on the frontage fool you, this dining experience easily rivals Fogo, and the price and reasonable noise levels actually nudge it ahead in my book."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "Our kitchen was being remodeled, so we decided to eat at Tradicao for Thanksgiving and enjoyed a wonderful meal! The service was outstanding, the food delicious, and our party of 7 could easily converse in the full dining room. We missed the stuffing and cranberry sauce, but everything else was exceptional."

  • "This is a great place for meat lovers who enjoyed having a good selection of meat. It is a warm place to socialise with friends and family."

  • "Tradicao is my favorite Brazilian steakhouse in the Houston area. The waitstaff if fantastic, the food is outstanding, and the ambiance is great. Never a disappointment!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "The salad bar is not what it's cracked up to be; in fact, it's quite small. The meats were delicious and the sides were just okay, with the exception of the delicious plantains. My only complaint is that there are way too many waiter disruptions when you're trying to talk with your companions. It just never stops. Even when we told him we were going to take a break and relax with our wine, he kept coming, about every 5 minutes. I felt like we couldn't have a conversation and definitely a prefer a nice restaurant where you order, get your food, and they leave you alone. Just personal preference."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Place was recommend by a friend so took my girlfriend there for our anniversary. Food was subpar to other Brazilian steakhouses, lamb had a iron taste to it eat as for the other meat it was season but really couldn't taste it. Shrimp and salmon was decent some some shrimp had more season while I did have some that had nothing what so ever. The customer service saved the food here. Manager was excellent asked us if we had any request and checked on our drink order and so on so staff was great."
