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.

Fathers Day. Felt the selections did not come around as much and we were sat in a poor location. Had to ask multiple times for sides to be delivered or refreshed.

The first few times we have gone everything was great. Unfortunately this visit was disappointing. Our waitress was nice, food was good but we sat there for an hour with no meat servers coming to our table. We were offered one thing several times and saw no variety until we complained. By that time we were no longer hungry. Not worth 47$ for just salad bar and a sausage.

Celebrating two birthdays and Father’s Day. It was a wonderful experience as usual. My husband and I have been here 2 other times but first time for my parents. They were blown away by the black beans and the garlic shrimp along with everything else they tried.

Excellent meal! Pro tip: ask for the menu listing the meats and then ask the carvers for what you want to try. That way you don’t miss anything that you’d love to try. Went for Father’s Day and my husband loved the food. Dessert was great too!

We only eat red meat when we go out to eat so we enjoy it when we do. But, this experience made it so much better! The wait staff was extremely friendly, the manager stopped by twice to make sure we were happy and the “meat stick guys”, not their official titles I’m sure, never stopped coming. We ate, non-stop, for 47 minutes! And the salad section is unstoppable. Veggies, unbelievable potato salad, lobster bisque, and, yes, MORE MEAT! If you are looking for a good, fun experience without the kitschy atmosphere this is the place to go. It’s all you can eat where the buffet comes to you! I WILL be back and so will my friends!

Having been to a number of these restaurants, I believe I have a fair basis for comparison. While overall I found the experience fine, the atmosphere and food was not quite up to par. The salad bar was not maintained well and there were many dishes that were not restocked in a timely manner. Our reservation was for 7:00 so I would have expected to see a full clean salad bar. The tables were very close together making it almost uncomfortable to walk to the salad bar. The meats were not plentiful and often had to wait a long time between even seeing meats come near our table. There was a seasonal special of skewered shrimp and I had to ask numerous times for it to be brought to our table. By the time it did arrive, we were basically done eating and wanted our bill. It was hard to get the attention of the staff, even to get clean plates of request a certain meat.

While I would tell a friend about this location, I would be honest with them and let them know that this location does not represent the service and atmosphere that you normally get at these restaurants. I will not be going back unless something changes at this location. I will say our waiter was funny and tried really hard, but he even seemed spread to thin to really serve us correctly. I think this location is severely understaffed and that unfortunate situation is reflecting poorly on this chain.

Waitress was really doing her best. What food we were able to get was very good however the servers for the food were very very slow so we ended up not being able to taste many of the meats offered. Buffet food was also good but again getting it refilled was a slow process. Definitely isn’t worth $50. I’ve been to a few other names and was much happier. Restaurant is also very crowded. Kinda feel like sardines in a can.

A wonderful experience from start to finish: a birthday present to my wife, who grew up in Brazil. The food is absolutely authentic, fresh, and perfectly prepared. This is a place to which we wouldn't hesitate to take guests from Brazil. Prepare to eat lots of red meat (esp. the picanha, or "sirloin cap," which is out of thsi world). Vegetarians would do great with the buffet, but should give this a miss unless they can either do just the buffet (w/o meat) or order a la carte. In short: excellent!

Everything was wonderful except the Lamb. It had a fishy taste (probably the dressing) that didnt taste right to us. Otherwise it was amazing especially the Filet minion wrapped in bacon.

Had a 6pm reservation. Seemed the first few offerings were dry and less flavorable. By 6:30, the meat was more tender, tasty, and very enjoyable. Will be back, but will guess I will dine later. After the leftover lunch skewers are consumed.

Fantastic staff, atmosphere, and high quality food. Served medium rare which was deliciously juicy, or you can ask for a selection cooked how you want, which was great quality too. If you don't get your money's worth for the food here, you only walked in without an appetite.

We had a wonderful waiter, Brandon. He was very helpful in explaining how the dining experience worked. Salad bar was good, meat depending on what you had was good. Some of the meat was very salty. Did not care for the lobster bisque at all!! Hot sides were so so.

The restaurant was only about half full yet it took quite a long time before we were waited on. We’ve been here before but this time they didn’t bring around a lot of food and it was a long time in between each service. I would recommend only going when it’s busy, they must not want to cook too much when they’re not busy

We were given a gift certificate for this restaurant. We had some experience with the Brazilian steakhouse concept. We were greeted nicely and seated immediately because we had a reservation. Don’t go without one. Our waitress was awesome and explained everything to us as first time guests. Her recommendation was for a wine that was pricier than their house selection. We would go with another selection next time. The salad bar was fresh with many high-quality ingredients. But don’t fill up on this even if you’re tempted to do so. The meats that come around are shaved off skewers and each was delicious. The only drawback is if you and your friends are not big eaters, you won’t feel as if your food experience cost is worthwhile. But if you love a long, leisurely dinner with family and friends, this is a great, albeit costly, place.
