  • "We come here often and are never disappointed. Great service, extremely friendly staff, fresh delicious salad and the meat is heavenly. Pork ribs are so tasty. Lamb melts in your mouth."

  • "Food was great service was awesome. Servers were constantly making rounds making sure our plates and side dishes were always full. The salad bar was kept fresh and re-filled constantly. Would definitely be a repeat customer"

  • "I would recommend only because it is a "different" dining experience. I, personally, would not return."

  • "This was my first experience with a brazilian steakhouse and all I have to say is I wish I could financially and physically afford to be a regular. Starting off with the salad bar, although it was a little tough to get around due to the crowd, it was well worth the wait. Everything was spectacularly prepared and very fresh tasting. So once we nearly filled up on the salad bar and had a few rounds of the house drink, which was also amazing and did the job, our cards were flipped and immediately our plates were full. My only complaints were the noise levels and the fact that it did take quite a while to get our alcoholic beverages refilled. Other than that the meat was amazing and so was the service. Will be going back very soon!!!"

  • "The food is consistently great!! Friendly and happy staff. The meats are always fresh an hot. There are do many choices. Be sure to come hungry. My favorite is the pork ribs, always cooked to perfection and the filet gives any fancy steakhouse a run for the money. It is fantastic. A must try 👍"

  • "I've taken the family to a couple of different Brazilian steakhouses and this one far surpassed those. The food, decor, and service were simply outstanding. The entire family loved it and my son, whose birthday we were celebrating, talked the whole weekend about it. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "Varied menu with a great selection of meats. Great salad bar with interesting choices. Very good service with a friendly staff. Very nice environment; very comfortable. Plenty of food; definitely one does not leave hungry. Good desert menu, if one has room for desert."

  • "We returned again to celebrate a special occasion and enjoy the excellent table served meats. They accommodate your request for wellness of the cuts and run for more of anything you don't see come by. Just wish they would add some veggie side dish choices to go with the potatoes, rice and broiled bananas. Or maybe even grill some veggies on a skewer and serve like the meats. Too full of main course to sample desserts just like before! Only limit on coming more often is the cost which is probably fair for the food served but it is always about $60 a person for us here so once or twice a year is it!"

  • "This was my second visit, the first was with my wife. We enjoyed our visit so much, I scheduled an office outing for my staff! We normally spend one hour and 45 minutes for lunch outtings, That is not the case at Tradicao. If you wanted you could spend 45 minutes and have as much food as you could eat in that length of time! The best service and food for a lunch outing I been to in a long time. The service is fast and professional and the food was even better!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Fresh, hot and delicious meats. Friendly and attentive service. Tasty salad bar with many choices. The sundried tomatoes and fresh mozzarella are my favorites. The pork ribs and filet are always tender and perfectly seasoned. I can't find anything that I would change."

  • "The entire staff is amazing and so very detailed,and the owner is on premise (Sugar Land) and he greets his clients like family;a true professional! Our children love it,as well as the two of us adults(with and w/o kids). I HIGHLY would recommend Tradicao for anytime, but especially special occasions,as they do it right 110% of the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The food is better than that in Brasil,and my wife is a frequent visitor to there,so she would be in the know! Five stars, jaja- 10 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  • "Our 3rd time here and I can always count on a great time, from the wonderfully friendly staff to the delicious food and decently sized wine list. People say it's pricey but if they are guaranteed a excellent experience....Would it matter at that point? Personally I find it cheaper than Fogo de Chao. "

  • "1st time at this type of venue, but not at this class of place. The various meats were some of the best tasting meats I have ever tasted. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good date night as the food is sure to impress. Great staff and wonderful salad bar with many choices to include smoked salmon and salmon cerviche."

  • "I have to admit, I was very disappointed when I made a reservation for Mother's Day and then when the bill arrived it was significatly higher than what is published on the website. Don't get me wrong; the food was great but I couldn't understand why I had to pay more for the same food to while celebrating my mother."

  • "Was in the area on business and needed to find a place for our group of 7 for dinner. They had tables available so we gave it a whirl. Im no stranger to Brazilian Steak houses, so i knew what i should expect. I was quite pleased. The place was quite nice, the staff VERY attentive, and th food was as good if not better than ive had at the known chains. I'd definitely go back if i find myself there again."

  • "Tradicao's location isn't the most desirable - just off the highway with not much evening activity around (with the added plus of a large sign making it clear that you should lock your door and secure your valuables), but that aside the ambience is very nice, the food is very tasty, and the wait staff are very attentive… maybe even a little too attentive - there were times when we had our coaster indicating 'no more', but they still came by - great most of the time, but a little annoying (conversation-wise) at others; one of the servers was a little rude when we asked for a different cut and some dishes were definitely much better than others, but overall a really positive experience. As far as price, it was about what we were expecting."

  • "I just want to take a moment to review Tradicao Brazilian Steakhouse. I have been here now 4 times over the last year and a half. Still every special occasion I can't wait to go back. We have been there the last 2 Valentines which was a great experience and we went for our anniversary and they treated took extra special care of us. This past weekend I just wanted to spend a special night out with my adult son so we went here so he could experience the amazing food. I must say that he was amazed at the entire experience. Service is always excellent and the food... well the food is to die for!"

  • "This is one of our favorite places to eat as a family. The food is wonderful - hot, fresh and plentiful and the service is outstanding - if we ever have a special request it is met quickly. We make it a point to visit Tradicao at least once a month and it is our kids favorite place to come for their birthday because they know they will have a great meal and a great time. Looking forward already to our next visit in May!"

There are do many tasty meats to choose from. I love the pork ribs and the filet. I come often and I would and do recommend to all. Be sure to come hungry :)"

  • "I am not able to consume red meat and pork so I was just expecting to enjoy salad. We dined here to celebrate a relative who loves red meat. I was so pleased to discover that they have smoked salmon(lax), grilled salmon, shrimp and chicken and great salad bar with a good selection. I couldn't get enough of the delicious food. We had 7 persons in our party and all were more than satisfied, they have something for every pallet. Desserts were delicious with a good selection. Staff provided outstanding customer service! Friendly, accommodating and prompt. Also liked the decor and ambiance. Added to my favorite restaurants list."

We decided to go for the Salad Bar this time, I noticed the floor manager visit all the tables around us but not ours???? We thought it was because we went we the cheaper version of Salad Bar, VERY DISAPPOINTED.....If you are going to visit tables visit them all......"

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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!"
