$31 to $50
Brazilian Steakhouse
Avenida Brazil stays true to the foundations of the traditional Brazilian churrascaria. We offer a world class upscale dining experience with several of the finest cut meats, amazing side dishes, desserts and a full bar that includes red & white wines from across the globe.

The experience is split up into two parts

Part 1: Salad Bar - After being seated, guests can help themselves to our gourmet salad bar stocked with more than 30 fresh items.

Part 2: Meat - At each of our seats, we include a coaster with a red side and a green side. Once back at their table, guests can start signaling our gauchos (meat servers) by flipping over the coaster to the red side. This indicates that the guest is ready to enjoy the 13+ succulent meats, which include lamb, beef, chicken, and fish. As an accent to the meat, we provide five delicious side dishes.

First time at this s restaurant, we were extremely pleased with the service, food ambiance! We could carry a conversation at normal levels and enjoy the background music. The food!!!! Was not only well presented but the taste was out of this world! We’ll be back!

When given the choice of a super-Churrasca like Fogo/TdB or this one... nothing beats the neighborhood restaurant atmosphere. The others are just warehouse restaurants with terrible acoustics.

Food and service here is always top notch. High quality cuts and nice pour on drinks. I always wish I could leave room for dessert but it is just too good!

I’d rather choose Avenida over the bigger chain Brazilian Steakhouses any day. They are local and family owned and so personable.
Their house special steak is my absolute favorite but then again, everything is delicious!

I actually like this place better than fogo de chao. Not to knock fogo but this place has a lot intimate atmosphere, better personalized service, and more selection. All in all, it's a better spot for date night.

Every bit as good as the "other" trailblazer in this category of Brazilian Churrascaria. Great service and good food. The ambiance was just one star off of outstanding but it could be due to the Covid-19 restrictions that intruded on the experience.

It was a terrible experience. Nobody was at the host stand when we arrived and we waited there for 10 minutes. Drinks took forever to arrive and there was hardly any meat circulating. When we requested anything it would take over 20 minutes to arrive and more often not at all. The sides were never refreshed and the waitstaff seemed confused and overwhelmed. We eventually just called it a night and asked for the check.

Everything you want in a Brazilian steakhouse; the food doesn't stop coming until you tell them to! they will happily bring you special orders if you want something in particular you haven't seen. Your water tea or other glass will never run empty. Very nice people.

Quality and cook on the food was not as expected, I have been to another Brazilian steakhouse and was anticipating a lovely dining experience with my husband, but was disappointed at how undercooked most of the meat was. The sides were delicious, but service was also subpar. Waiters paid little to no attention to us and we had to ask multiple times for refills before finally getting them.

Went with our neighbors for Restaurant Week special. Food was outstanding, service impeccable. We had a GREAT time. Will definitely be back! Sad to report, however, the restaurant was empty. Covid-19 precautions are in place. Masks required, and plastic gloves provided for trips to the salad bar. Lets get out there and support this wonderful business and the folks who work there!

Even with the whole pandemic, Avenida Brazil had a great selection at the salad bar and on the cuts of meat. The gentleman that come up to give you the cuts of meat seem to love their job and are really nice and in great moods.

We go to Avenida Brazil every few months and they NEVER disappoint. The food is always consistently fresh and seasoned to perfection. The service (thank you Francisco) is second to none. This is by far our favorite restaurant in the Houston area (Woodlands) and one of our top 3 Internationally.
The price is similar to other Brazilian restaurants, but we never have to wait for the meat to be brought to our table, like you frequently do at the other Brazilian restaurants in town. This restaurant actually appreciates you as a customer and they go over and beyond to make you feel welcomed and appreciated.
Well done (actually medium rare please) Avenida Brazil. We'll definitely be back for more.

My wife and I really enjoyed going to this place it was our first time there. We went there for our anniversary I believe this was a good pick for the two of us. The food was great the variety that we had was just right. The ambiance was a good setting just a few people and mostly quiet. The waiters were good they attended to us and were very polite. We did enjoy coming to Avenida Brazil and will make another visit in the future.

Great food and service but they are still serving from table to table plate to plate. I won’t return because of COVID concerns and their serving practices. They advertised that because of COVID they will bring the meats straight from the kitchen to your table but that is not what we experienced. I will miss dining here.
