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.

We arrived for our reservation on time and it took them quite a while to finally get us seated. When we were seated, they sat us at a table in the furthest corner of the restaurant. The gauchos would come by with the meat that nobody really wanted. We would end up asking on four separate occasions to have specific meat brought out, but it wouldn’t make it to our table. It seems like when you’re seated closer to the kitchen, the quality and quantity of meats improve. We weren’t really satisfied with this experience as we were compared to other experiences we’ve had with this restaurant.

Been at this restaurant in other cities and it is usually a good experience. The McAllen one... not so good. Service was super slow and we had to request for filet more than once. When we finally got it, it wasn’t very good and I’m almost sure it wasn’t filet

Was obvious that our waittress waited hand and foot to the two larger parties next to us. We had to flag down and ask several times for items. Asked for fries for our 3 year old. Never got them, just gave up on the order. But was tentative when the other tables left. Guess we must have not loookd like big tippers. Other than that, was good

I had been here for dinner before . It was great last time and this time was no different. The salad and soup bars are top notch but the real stars are the cuts of meat. I have never had a bad cut. When the gauchos say that a cut is medium you can believe it is. If you like wine they also have a great wine selection. And did I say dessert? They are excellent too.

A very dissatisfied experienced. Caipirihnas were not even close to original recipes, that call for crushed lime and pure sugar, as they used syrup and a bottled lime juice (with a few real limes)...watery at best. The quality of the meat cuts was mediocre at best, with a fatty and irregular cut for the Picanha and an uneatable leg of lamb. The salad bar had a few options for cheese and the beans were over salted.

Hard to recognize anything, other than the service, which was cordial but rushed.

Went on Valentines Day and the food was delicious so I decided to go on another day which was on a Friday night and the meat tasted kind of bad it seemed like old meat, I believe they should always have fresh meat for the price you are paying

Main issue I had with this visit was the meat quality. One or cuts (garlic sirloin) was extremely tough to the point it couldn’t be chewed/eaten. The one time they brought out fillet minion it was cold, like it had been sitting out for a while, same with the lamb chops. It was a slow night so I understand that they probably weren’t going through enough of the meat to constantly make fresh stuff, bne of the main reasons I like to go to a Brazilian steakhouse is for hot off the fire, juicy meat so that was disappointing considering. Especially because the dinner service is when some of the better cuts are served and several of them were cold and not very good.

I do want to compliment the staff and overall service though, they were all friendly and efficient. Overall cleanliness for this location was top notch as well.

The waitress got us set up then never came back. She couldn't get the Bill's straight and it took the bartender to get them correct, at least a 45 minute wait. In the waitress defense, she appeared to have too many tables. The manager seemed more concerned about clearing tables, then keeping an eye on what was going on. With other restaurant options in the area, will probably not be going back

The salad bar needs more variety of veggies. On special occasions like. ValentDay, they should have something special going on like a free glass of champagne or make it more romantic like dimming the lights and putting on soft music. We went for Valentines dinner and it just seemed like a regular night out with my fiancé. The restaurant didn’t make it special.
The food was amazing and the service was great...
