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 Tex

Sever George was awesome, food was excellent . Only complaint was the men bringing the meat around didn’t ask everyone at the table if they’d like some. We had to flag them down to come back.

Always a treat to come here. I told them it was our anniversary and after eating numerous plates of meat and stuffing ourselves with bananas for dessert we were surprised to receive a complimentary cheesecake that had “Happy Anniversary” written on it. So good, but I can only come here maybe 3x year since I gain 5 pounds per visit.

For the price we paid of $55 a person, we felt it wasn't worth it. The selection of meats was good, but other than the salad, there wasn't any supplemental foods. We have gone many times in the past and usually get mashed potatoes, mini cheese rolls and fried sugar bananas to enjoy with the meats. This time, we were told that the mashed potatoes were out this evening. When we were almost finished with dinner, we asked another meat server about the mashed potatoes and he went to the kitchen area and came back with a small plate of mashed potatoes and indicated, they just made some. We did get the mini cheese rolls with the dinner, but the fried sugar bananas came with the mashed potatoes. Too late to enjoy with the meat portion of the meal. We sat close to the kitchen, but would never want to sit there again, as we were clustered next to a walkway, salad bar and traffic. Also, the salad bar looked as if we got there when it was time for replacements. A number of main salad choices were ready for new food. We actually were really disappointed in a normally nice restaurant. This was the first time for dinner, we have had many personal and business lunches in your restaurant in the past, with no issues. Not a good experience for dinner..Regards...Ian Taylor

My husband and I normally go together but this time I went by myself. My waiter was not attentive. The only highlight was the flank steak and the man who dishes out the lamb chops. He is wonderful, I personally don’t eat the lamb but he remembers my husband and had a conversation with me. I was disappointed that no manager came to the table, like they normally do. The food was delicious.

I usually go there every three weeks, service was horrible, food was tasteless this time.
We had to look for a server to ask for refills.
Food servers pass by without asking if we want food or not or they will ask my husband and myself and forgot about my daughter.

Selected salad bar only option $29.99 weekend price. Celebrated gal pal birthday. Excellent salad bar selections including a few hot items. All the food was fresh and of good quality. Free birthday dessert of your choice is a plus. Noise level very high...difficult to maintain a conversation.

We got sat at a corner table which was the first mistake. We went 20 minutes without having any servers offer any meat to us. I asked the waitress to move us to a central location at an available table but instead she apologized and sent servers to our table. I like to get my monies worth when we go here. I didnt get to try as many meets because the servers would forget us and would focus on larger parties.

It was the busiest it's ever been, and I've been here many times. There weren't enough servers and the selection of meats was very low.
My wife and I found ourselves sitting waiting for soemeone to come by with meat.
On our way home we talked about finding another place to go to, and we have been to Texas Brazil for anniversaries and birthdays.

Lunch menu wasn't great. The meat selection was sad. The bar area didn't have a great variety. I've been so hyped up about this place since I've seen the place in Vegas and I got let down. First time trying the place, most likely will be my last. I came on Valentine's Day and it wasn't even busy yet we still got slow service.

Food was slow to come to the table. Our table was next to the kitchen, not the best ambiance. We be better off going to an upscale Steakhouse like Ruths Chris for the same money.

My husband and I usually go to Fogo de Chao but we decided to try Texas de Brazil. It turned out we prefer Texas de Brazil a little more.

This was our first time at Texas de Brazil, and our waiter, Garrett, made the experience so enjoyable. He explained everything in detail, kept our water glasses full and answered all our questions and even asked the "gouchos" to bring us more of our favorite meats back to our table. It was my husbands' birthday we were celebrating and Garrett brought him a complementary piece of cinnamon cheesecake out for dessert with a candle! How nice was that?!! My husband posted our experience on his facebook and talked to his brother in vegas about this restaurant, and apparently there is one in Vegas also and his brother loved it too! I loved the huge salad bar area. ( I might just do that for my meal next time!) We had a very relaxing lunch and did not feel rushed in any way, so happy I took my friends advice and went to Texas de Brazil in Irvine!!

Great experience, very attentive service and variety of meats was quite extensive. If something could be improved, it would be the salad bar selection and the taste of the cheese bread. Otherwise very flavourful and value was incredible. Would definitely return again.

Tried it for the first time and while I love Brazilian steak houses, the overall experience and food quality were not to par for the local and national competition. The cost was very expensive relative to the value. They had new credit card machines which took over 20 minutes to complete the very awkward process of paying our bill with clients at the table. They accused us of not having the funds, then the manager came out an apologized and offered no feedback or support of any kind. We definitely will be going to FOGO DE CHAO in the future. ADIOS!

I eat here often and service is always hit or miss. When I went on 1/25 for dinner the gauchos were fast and friendly. However, our server was terrible. Never check up on us. It was always someone else to do his job ? Very strange. He just was not friendly.

This was my first time and was not disappointed. The service was excellent, the server came over multiple times to ask if we had any questions what are favorites were.
The salad bar was amazing, could make a meal on that alone. The variety of the meats was wonderful. The steak wrapped in bacon was mouthwatering. We had peacan pie, delicious. I have already recommended the restaurant to friends and hope to go again. Excellent for special occasions. Our server explained about the red/green disk telling us to start the many meats. Was so impressed how each meat was served and sliced right at our table. It was the first time that I
had lamb and it was delicious. Pork can be rather dry, but the pork chops were so moist and so much flavor. We had the house wine and it very nice.

The food was great. The restaurant wasn't that crowded so the meat came to our table often and was hot and fresh. It was a good night out. Its a bit pricey but no more than a steak house. And you didn't have to spend extra on sides.

First filet was tasty and done just right. Very tender with just the right amount of salt and sizzle. That was the highlight of the night. Then the bacon wrapped fillet, also good. But it went downhill from there. The Parmesan chicken was dry. The flank was chewy and way overcooked. Same with the picanha. I didn't expect the other cuts to be as good as the filet but it should be better than what I could make at home. We went back to the filet with and without bacon wrap. The second batch came out chewy and inconsistent. We enjoyed the sausage (hard to mess that up). After a half hour of light grazing, drinks and conversation, we noticed they had more meats available than were being walked around. So we asked for the ribs. Unfortunately what they brought out was soaked in grease and killed our appetite for the night. I'm glad we used dining cards from Costco so we at least got a discount. Because at $200+ for a family of 4, I would expect much better quality and variety. Also as a last note, be careful that certain drinks are refillable and others are not. If not sure, please ask ahead of time to save yourself any additional salt into the wound that will be your bill.
