Texas de Brazil – Lexington Ratings and Reviews
Went here for the first time on a Tuesday night for an early business dinner. Clients had never been there either. Everyone loved the amount of food and the attention that we were given. Salad bar was great and very unique. Beef was delivered according to your level of doneness. Atmosphere was great as well. Will definitely go back.
I had eaten at a different Brazilian Steakhouse in San Antonio the week before. I was telling my wife how great it was and promised I would take her. Researched the web and found this place. Similar level of service which was great, Salad Bar was also similar which was also great. Meat selection offered was similar. However, the meat was not of the same quality as I had experienced. The meat seemed to be much more tough here. Even the Beef Filet was hard to chew. This left me with feeling a bit disappointed. Especially since the price was almost the same. My wife seemed to enjoy it more than I did. In my opinion of your going to spend that much money the meat should be tender. If you want a top quality restaurant I would recommend trying some others.
I gave the food a 3 because of the salad bar 5 salad bar, 2 meat.
Was a little disappointed when we had to wait 45 minutes for a table as I did have reservations. Also the night was cut short when we left for the evening as my car was broken into in the garage behind the restaurant. There was security driving around and NO CAMERAS!! I was parked in the very front of the garage as soon as you enter the garage. It seems someone used the fire extinguisher to break my rear window of my car and no one seen or heard anything. Police report was made and no explanation as to how someone could do this right in the front of the garage. My purse was stolen out of my car. I know this is not the restaurant's fault but it makes me not want to return as I don't feel safe. I've been on many travels and never have I had this happen. Not feeling safe, or able to leave your vehicle and feel good about it will not make for a good dining experience. May want to think about investing in cameras for the safety of your patrons.
The meats were good, the salad bar was decent. I'll give them props for great bacon and mushrooms on the salad bar! The only real issue was bad service from our waiter. He had trouble paying attention, very slow bringing bread and we were well into our meats before sides ever arrived. Again, food was solid, service was lacking.
We had a good second experience. Having been to many Brazilian steak houses over years, even in Brazil, I think their salad bar is just a little ‘light’ but still very good and to tell the truth you don’t want to fill up on the ‘non meat’ stuff! We went in second week but this time was much more polished and we had great service and good quality. Only advice is to do more med rare or medium. A lot of times gauchos had rare or med well - kind of opposite ends of the spectrum. Good place - will come again!
My Sorority Sisters and I went here for our 1 year anniversary. We loved the service, the food, the house drink and the overall experience! The holiday offer was perfect which gave us $10 off of our bill. Everyone enjoyed the selection of the restaurant and said that they would be back soon!
The service was excellent, the food amazing. I really can't say enough about the sizzling meat that was brought out that will do it justice. I tried to try a little bit of everything that the servers brought out and I still don't think I accomplished that. The salad bar options are incredible. I would go back just for the salad bar. They have whole pieces of thick sliced bacon on the salad bar! Not bacon bits...bacon slices! I cannot recommend this place highly enough! Looking forward to my next trip there!
Large salad bar with different things to try that you wouldn’t normally find on a salad bar. Different types of meat to try. All you can eat. Not like a normal buffet. Service was excellent. If we passed on a certain meat several of the servers asked if they could send something else to our table. Pricey but was fun to try it out. Dessert was excellent as well.
The food was above average and the place was very nice. The waitress that took care of us was loud,abnoxious,and we could not understand a word she said. She was asked several times to please just leave us alone and she insisted on carrying on talking for ten to 15 minutes.
This place in my opinion is just ok compared to similar Brazilian steakhouses. This is the only one here in Lexington so I'm sure that helps their business. I was disappointed in not being able to use my coupon. Manager stated it isn't accepted on Saturdays however it didn't state that on the actual coupon itself. I actually prefer Fogo de Chao over this place anyday!!
Always love TdB. I was so happy when I saw they were opening one in Lexington. The salad bar was a bit smaller than some of the other ones I have been to but I come for the great meats.
My favorites were picanha, lamb (chops and leg), the sausage, and the beef short ribs. OMG, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
The waiters and servers were all very friendly and attentive.
My son treated me for my birthday dinner. Because we had the first reservations after the restaurant was opened it was very quiet. We had excellent service and the food was very good. I took my free birthday dessert (cheesecake) home as we were full. We look forward to going to this restaurant again soon.
"Salad bar" does not do justice to the creative and beautiful selection of options from which diners can choose. Everything I tasted was delicious with interesting combinations of flavor. Of course, the meat offerings were also fabulous. Definitely come hungry! The value is well worth the cost if you are able to enjoy the full experience.
Really nice place. Oddly upscale and fancy for all you can eat. Salad bar was really more than I expected. I normally wouldn't say you could just do the salad bar option but you have so much to choose from it wouldn't be a bad way to go at all.
Service was extremely good and almost came off "too nice" in contrast to other places. Not a bad thing but customer service is obviously a top priority here.
The meat is always delicious and the service is great. The lobster bisque was amazing the first time we went but wasn't very good this time, so I guess some items are hit-or-miss. Be advised: Coke and Coke products are NOT fountain drinks, so you'll get charged for each refill (they use 12oz aluminum cans) and it gets pretty expensive at $3 a can.
I've had dinner here a number of times. I really enjoy bringing new people to experience this unique restaurant. With each visit I'm more impressed with both the food and level of service. From management on down they do everything possible to see that their guests are having a wonderful time. Don't let the cost stop you from trying it. When you figure the pp cost of an upscale steakhouse Texas de Brazil is quite reasonable. The hot and cold salad bar is hard to resist. Every 2 or 3 visits I do salad bar only. I still end up leaving stuffed! I highly recommend it for a special occasion. The staff will make you feel like the only people in the place. They'll be sure whatever the occasion is it will be extra special!
This place really was fantastic! The service was excellent, their “salad bar area” was really much more than a salad bar, it was very high end for a salad bar, with charcuterie, antipasto, shrimp, salmon, prepared salads, cheeses, vegetables, and an entire hot bar with delicious scalloped potatoes, coconut red curry cod which was very tasty, and much more! Then there was the meat! Oh my goodness , they really come around with any kind of meat you could want, and it is all very good. My favorites were their filet, their garlic sirloin, and their special top sirloin that is supposed to be the best available. There were also a couple different kinds of chicken, lamb, pork, and ribs. Lots of choices! Come hungry!!! We had a couple of their signature cocktails, the capirinha and the samba. Both were good, but the capirinha was very sweet. The samba had a bit more balance and also had some good tartness. Their desserts are also delicious, we tried the carrot cake with pistachios (probably the best I’ve ever had), the citrus creme brûlée, and their chocolate mousse cake. All were excellent. It is a expensive, but you do get a lot of food for your money. I would definitely recommend for a special night out or occasion. It is worth the experience and I would love to go back again!
