This was our first trip to this particular Brazilian steakhouse, but our family is a frequent visitor to others. The food was great, the atmosphere was perfect with plenty of space and great seating for a group, but the surprise was how amazing the service was. There was no limit to the number of folks that were helping out while at the same time not being a bother. We will absolutely return, and I would definitely recommend this location over going to Austin to visit a more expensive version with a lesser experience. Come here first!

Really impressed with this Brazilian Steakhouse and restaurant. I have been to a variety of Brazilian Steakhouses throughout the US and internationally and this is definitely among the best, considering the value you get. It was very nice and the staff is very courteous and professional. I was impressed the moment entering, sitting down and ordering. They aspire to be the best and welcome constructive feedback. It is clear they listen to their customers and make every effort to be the best. Very memorable experience. My family and I will be back again.

The chimi-churi comes in WAY too small bowls (tablespoon at most). The pork was too dry and over-cooked, but I was there for the beef. Skip the sausage, very unimpressive. Salad bar gets high marks. The spicy Picanha was the best (!), the rib eye also good, the beef rib good, and the lamb was so-so. The attention from the wait staff was very good. Dinner for two (with drinks) ended up around $140.

We went on Christmas Eve, we were one of a few tables being served, but I can tell they likely give this much attention to all of their guests. Food was fantastic, even the salad bar. Excellent choice for Christmas Eve and no cooking or cleanup.

My husband and I came here for his birthday and what a fantastic experience it was. We were thoroughly impressed and will most certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fancy night out, to celebrate a special occasion, or for fancy work dinners. Manny helped us throughout the night and was an absolute dream. He's truly passionate about what he does and it made our experience so special. Thank you, Manny!

My wife and I went out for Anniversary date night. We have frequented both Fogo de Chao and Estancia Brazilian steakhouses. The Fogueria has the best beef hands down. Their beef rib was literally melted beef perfection. Terry Black’s has competition for beef rib customers ..finally!
The bottom sirloin Fraldinha was awesome a significantly better than the other two places. Tried all of the beef and enjoyed all varieties. Chicken was strong o n garlic. Lamb was juicy and not overdone. Only dissatisfied notes were Estancia does better caramelized bananas and pork rib was not up to Black’s quality of pork spare ribs.

Dessert; Flan was a more stiff and eggy custard but very satisfying with their good after dinner low acid , smooth no sugar needed coffee. Bang for the buck...well worth the cost for the food experience.

P.S., the crusty bread is very good. I was taking the fatty stuff from inside the beef rib and spreading like a beef smoltz on tge bread and eating it. Bread would go awesomely with beef stew...to chase down a good beefy gravy.

Servers were attentive the first 20 minutes, then we had no one come by to check on us? I served myself and my husband a refill of lemonade from the pitcher near by. My son ordered shrimp but never received it. Side dishes were brought out only because I inquired about it. Brought it to managers attention only to be treated as if he didn’t want to hear my concerns, and made excuses that they had a full house. My husbands birthday was not eventful. We did not receive the service we deserved. We will not be back.

The service was amazing, the whole staff was very friendly and attentive; which made for a nice evening. The salad bar had so much to choose from and was delicious. The meat selections were very good, you can ask them to cook it to your liking. I had some well cooked but quickly switched out to rare. We noticed some tables getting cocktails lit with fire so we tried that out with some espresso shots. Delicious and fun! Flaming cheesecake was entertaining and tasty as well. It’s nice to have a steakhouse like this in round rock without having to travel 20miles into Austin. Relaxed formal, if that makes sense. Go in hungry!

This is a more relaxed and better priced version of Fogo de Chao. The salad bar spread is not as extensive but the meat (the reason you're coming) is excellent. And they have a good wine selection.

This is really not Brazilian food! It’s a restaurant with an identity crisis. I had high expectations because I’ve lived in Brazil and have patronized several Brazilian steakhouses throughout the years, drove about 45 minutes on a Saturday night with my family, but was disappointed. Caribbean salsa music was playing loudly, salad bar buffet was mediocre - shaved cheese was old (had white mold), asparagus looked great but was not savory, mushrooms were not seasoned (just boiled or sautéed in basically their own juices), and the only savory items were the peppers. All the waiters and waitresses were Mexican or Central American looking. Our young waitress kept saying "you guys". After we finished eating, I asked one of the waiters who walked by if he spoke Portuguese and he did! (Thank heavens! I would've never called this restaurant Brazilian if no one even spoke Portuguese.) He introduced me to the only one other waiter who was Brazilian and we had a nice short conversation. The meat was not seasoned Brazilian style (not savory at all - most was bland), most food was bland, lamb had way too much vinegar, and the waiters served rare meat when we asked for medium or medium well (so, they didn't know the difference). Sad to say, the most well seasoned meat were the beef ribs. Even the sirloin was bland. The cheese bread was delicious. The fried corn sticks were awful. The mashed potatoes, beans, and rice were cold. It was not seasoned at all like feijoada. The wine list was good. But, I will not go here again. This is not Brazilian food. It's just an ok expensive American restaurant with lots of Hispanic waiters/waitresses. I'm giving it 3 stars instead of a lower rating because the managers and waitress staff tried hard to please, but the greatest problem is in the kitchen. I recommend changing the kitchen staff, playing Brazilian music, telling the stern Mexican waiters/waitresses to smile, and having someone who actually speaks Portuguese greet clients at the door.

Loved the food!! Service was too much when we didn’t need it and not enough when we did, which was a little confusing. But that was just for drink refills and more (delicious) cheesy bread. There was plenty of meat to go around, and they made extra sure to get us the meats we wanted at the temperatures we preferred. We will be going back. Often.
