Steakhouse
Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other.

Here, traditions of Brazilian cuisine blend with generous Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area – a feast for your eyes as well as your palate. Indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Next, an endless parade of gauchos visit your table with skewers of freshly grilled meats carved tableside. Choose from perfectly seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, cooked over a wood charcoal fire the way cowboys of Southern Brazil have prepared it for generations. It’s all served with authentic side dishes and to further complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations.

Welcome to the height of fine dining. Welcome to Texas de Brazil.

Love this style of dining. You need to come hungry and take your time to enjoy all the flavors. Our server was amazing along with the gauchos. Food would have been 5 stars but this night they were a bit too heavy on salting the meats, we were thirsty all night. They only get MW cooked filet from the kitchen which is a total waste of meat in my eyes The sirloin was a great R - MR. Salad choices are very nice and what we had was fantastic. No way could we make the dessert course.
We purchased the $65 dining voucher that they offer and it’s a fantastic value. On our first visit visit we received a $48 credit. We have 5 more times for us to use this as a couple. Looking forward to our next meal here.

All the meats are so delicious and very well seasoned. All the staff is always so friendly, the sides are greats, from the array of cheeses to the delicious black beans and rice, definitely worth the visit

The service was good excellent waitress, very friendly and helpful. The salad bar and meats were ok. Lamb chops were over cooked, even when I asked for rare ones they were still over cooked. Compared to Fogo De Chao, Texas De Brazil has a lot of catching up to do. Most likely better for lunch since it’s close by.

Definitely won’t return. Service was ok. Food made us sick the following day. Drinks were not impressive. For Brazilian steak houses Fogo is more expensive but literally everything is better

Love this place for the most part. But for some reason today it took 3 hours from when we were sat till when we paid our check. Hour and a half in we were still looking for someone to bring around steak that we were looking for. Then desert was an hour from when we finished our last bite of food to when were paid and left . Really killed our day's plans . I wouldn't have minded if we hadn't needed to be in and out in half the time.

The food was very good and I really appreciated the quality of it and presentation. I wish they would give you more time to enjoy your meal and company instead of coming up to you every 3 minutes asking if you want to try this and that. It was a little overwhelming and couldn’t have a decent conversation. Aside from that the food was amazing

I have been to Texas de Brazil in many states and am so disappointed in this experience.
Our waiter who was a blonde lady, I believe her name was Holly was absolutely drunk and you could here her slurring every word when she asked if we needed anything. We didn’t get all the meats we were expecting all night as well. The men walking around with the meats were cutting it over my purse and the other half of my parties purse and spilt the juice from the meat on them. The waiter was slow and didn’t offer new clean plates, all the silverware wasn’t there as the waiter explained she took them for another table and she didn’t replenish ours, I had to ask one of the men walking around with the meat for them. They asked many times if we were celebrating anything which I told them we were celebrating my husbands birthday and my graduation expecting that they would do a complimentary dessert for my party they didn’t, my husband asked if the dessert would be enough for four which our waitress explained yes and then she came out with a huge platter of options and asked which one we wanted to purchase and were left upset because she made it seem like they were giving us one on the house for the special occasions. She left us with the check came back for it and left our card at the table, then she came back with a wireless device to swipe our card and never came back to collect that or give us a receipt since the device wasn’t printing and last but not least didn’t thank us for dinning with them after we spent a lot of money at this business. Never going back to the location in Carlsbad,Las Vegas or any other location if this is the customer service I will be getting. What a disgrace to this once great business. 0 out of -100 do not recommend this establishment anymore!!!! If opentable gave me a option to rate it a 0 I would in a heartbeat! I guess we should’ve went next door to Cheesecake Factory for a better experience hopefully

For the price, I have a hard time recommending this place. A dinner for 4 including tip and 2 glasses of house red wine was close to $300. If you’re a group who can take advantage of the large selection of meats, maybe it’s worth it but for the average person who can eat a normal portion it’s hard to justify to cost. The servers are the shining stars here. Everyone we encountered was helpful and welcoming and very nice.

Normally every time we come here we are pleased. Today service was slow and items were out. We had reservations for 7:45 and we got there a few minutes late; however because they were backed up, we waited an additional 15 minutes. We finally got our server; however, our water took about 15 minutes to come to our table after our server took our order. We were up and got our food and the meats were coming around and we still did not have our water, to the point that I was super thirsty. Finally our drinks came and once we got our first glass of water, we never received anymore water refills. We also were lucky enough to get 1 serving of their delicious black beans and then they said they were all out for the night? How? It was only a little after 8:15pm. They also ran out of their crispy bacon and no one ever refilled it. As always though the gauchos were great! Very disappointed tonight and we frequent this restaurant.

The staff was wonderful, the meats and food bar was great quality, and the wine was great too! My favorite was the lamb meat and the flank steak. The only complaint I have is the fire alarms kept going off on Valentines dinner night for no reason and no one gave us a reason why they were going off.

Went for my husband's birthday. Great restaurant, great service, great food. While checking in there was a very rude customer behind us that thought she was more important than us and complained that we were talking to the host while waiting to be seated. This was not the restaurant's fault though, it was the inconsiderate customer. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was awesome! We will return! Thanks for a great birthday dinner for my hubby.

My Family Came for a celebration Dinner for my husband and let me tell you Hands Down The Best Place ! We were welcomed as soon as we walked in, I made reservations online ( super easy ) we were seated and our waitress Corey is the absolute sweetest so polite explained everything to us ,this is our first time ! We started off with the amazing spread of the salad bar and then the servers came with all types of meats and each and everyone of it was so delicious and tender just my taste buds are in love. They had these mini circle one side said yes, please( green) the other No, thank you (red) such an awesome idea ! The desserts they had were just tasty they had carrot cake , red velvet cheesecake, Keylime pie, chocolate cake . The service was remarkable the manager Pamela was so helpful and made sure everything was perfect! We will definitely be coming back !

Regardless of the experienced we had tonight I still love TDB restaurant. This particular TDB is slower than the other TDB I’ve been to all over U.S. I have informed 3 different staff to speed up bringing the meat over. After a while just lost interest and moved on to the deserts. Overall, it was good.
