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

Here, traditions of Brazilian cooking blend with Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area where you can indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Then enjoy the rodizio-style dining that has made us famous. An endless parade of gaucho servers visits your table with skewers of freshly grilled beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage carved directly onto your plate. It’s all served with authentic side dishes of garlic mashed potatoes, Brazilian cheese bread and sweet fried bananas.

To complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations. And don’t forget to treat yourself to one of our decadent à la carte desserts.

Overall it was ok. Requested meats be medium rare and was repeatedly brought over medium steak and lamb. Especially the bacon wrapped filet. It was not even pink but still had good flavor. Service was impeccable though and the staff are awesome!

Took the family out to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We got to the restaurant early, but they were able to seat us right away. Food was amazing, the meat servers came by often. At the end we ordered some desserts, sang happy birthday and left satisfied.

Food was excellent! If I was able to eat more, I would give 5 stars for value. It’s pricey but worth it ... especially if you are a big meat eater. Great for special occasions.

This was my first visit during the dinner hour. I had previously been here for business lunches, when the restaurant is less busy and way quieter! I was surprised how loud the atmosphere was. I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner, and we had a bit of a hard time talking due to the noise. However, the food was wonderful and our server, Eric, was awesome!

I had a 15% discount coupon that was not not fully honored. The coupon said 15% entire bill with no other offer. The management consider the kids regular menu price as bring an offer so it wasn't discounted. Which I disagreed with the management since it states right on the menu that the kids price is half of the adult price so I don't understand how that would be considered as being any other offer, makes no sense and it left me with a poor service experience. This is the Irvine location.

Amazing customer service. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and kind. Hostess even placed my napkin on my lap. Every encounter with an employee was great! There were frequent checks to make sure we were enjoying our meal ... we were even able to request meat we wanted. The uniforms were so awesome. I appreciate aesthetics. And the best of all the FLAN! Amazing and creamy. Definitely coming back again and I live about an hour and 45 minutes away.

We don't eat tremendous quantities of food, so the continual offering of various cuts of meat was lost on us. Bring your biggest appetite if you go there, because it is very expensive - $60 per person without drinks or desert.

BEWARE that if you get their "white" "discount cards" from Costco they cannot be used with ANY other offer. Disappointing. Only restaurant I have seen that won't let you use a discount with a "gift card" because they call them "discount cards" instead.

Hands down the best experience I have ever had over any other Texas de Brazil and Fogo de chao locations in San Diego and Chicago. The servers here are very attentive and friendly. The chiaroscuros kept the meat coming and if you requested a specific meat, they literally kept those in rotation. They also cook the meats to your liking. They bring you a bowl of garlic mashed potatoes, a bowl of heavenly cheese bread and fried bananas with cinnamon to clean your palette between eating meats that help you taste the difference between meats. The salad bar has so many options to choose from. Just be careful because you can get full of just the salad bar and what gets brought to your table. If you’re celebrating a birthday or anniversary you get complimentary dessert.
Overall my experience here was phenomenal! Definitely worth the 3 hour drive for me.

With prereservation, early arrival, and plenty of open tables, my small group was seated in the corner/back of the restaurant (next to a beam) surrounded by other larger groups. I've been to the Irvine location several times and thought nothing of it (because service has always been satisfactory) until my table kept getting overlooked with "beef" options, all around drink refills, and dirty plates not getting picked-up (there's a salad bar). When choice meat was offered it was a repeat of chicken options or links while adjacent tables were offered filet mignon, steak, ribs, etc. (meat is brought to each table group). Flagged the waiter down and stated our complaint who directed it to his manager (on his own merit). They were very apologetic and essentially, service was satisfactory afterwards. Moral of the story, avoid getting seated in the corner (by a beam)!

As always the food is excellent. I did notice that a few times, my wife and I had to wait for somewhat lengthy periods to get attention form the wait staff; we still tipped 20%. I Do expect better service from Texas de Brazil. Again, the service was good, but not exceptional.

Overall all the experience was acceptable. The salad bar was good. I felt that the the meat quality could be improved. The meat was not cooked to perfection and could be better prepared. The restaurant should be more transparent about the soft drink policy. This is the first time in a long time Where I was charges for soft drinks refills. It is not about the few dollars for the soft drinks but the fact that it was not made clear.

When comparing this restaurant to similar ones I have had such as Fogo de Chao, this restaurant ranks below the standard of where it should be.

Jay was awesome. He came by several times to make everything was good. He also sent food over to us at request. My only complaint was the filet mignon guy didn’t come over as much. Jay told him to come over and to make up for it the filet guy gave me 3 pieces. It was awesome. Jay was very very good.

I dislike that I have to wait for meat service to come to my table. Not all the meat they have are flavorful. Most are actually bland. We were seated at the end and I feel like we got ignored by the servers carving meat. We have to waive our hands to get their attention (we hated doing it but the only way we can get attention). Not crazy about this place. Will not come back nor refer it to anyone.

We loved Texas de Brazil in Vegas! I didn’t like that we were seated in the bar area. I felt like the meat didn’t make it’s rounds. Although our server kept asking what meats we wanted and they still didn’t come around. Our server was great the meat was just slow coming to our table. I felt like we were excluded because we were literally in the bar area and not with the crowd. I guess getting the most excellent 5 star service in Vegas I was disspointed with Irvine location, but had to give 3 stars because our server was great.

Of all the Brazilian steakhouses this is the one to go to. The quality and flavor is much better than some of the others. We went for our anniversary with another couple and had been to the original in Addison, TX where it was located across the street from a Fogo de Chao. It was always and still is better than Fogo de Chao. The sides are tasty, service friendly.
