Our first time eating here and it was really good. The server did a great job and was very attentive. Food was delicious, but the sides took awhile to get to us.

The food was not to my liking. Not a big variety. It was salty and the service was slow. I had to keep asking for more beverage and it felt as though they were doing me a favor. I would not recommend it . I would rather go to what a burger.

Service was such a disappointment. We sat with empty plates for 15 minutes after turning our card "green" AND telling our server we were ready for skewers. I can only guess we were too far for the churrascarias to make their rounds. We saw them serving all the tables immediately outside the kitchen, but we were in an opposite corner (furthest from the grill) and they would not even glance our way. Extremely disappointing and irritating. After we spoke with a manager, the service did a 180° turn and we ate our fill. I just don't like for it to get to the point where we have to involve a manager. We were very patient. If dining here, ask to be seated near the grill.

Two of the three dining complained of lukewarm soup, you ran out of spring lettuce @ 7:00pm, so 1 person dining did not get a salad. There was also limited variations of the meat selection, which again was subpar to what we received before the pandemic. Overall it was fair. at best, this dining experience.
They also had trouble with my discount card, which after 15 minutes the manager said he would discount the meal and take it up with corporate.
I think we will wait until we are past this 50% dining limit and the issues we are facing before we try again. With limited customers, the quality seems to be compromised, hopefully, this is just a minor issue that will change when everything returns to normal. I'm not ready to recommend this location at this time.

We were seated by the salad bar, and thus, we were ignored by the staff serving the meat. We had to bring it to our server's attention. We were still unable to try all the meat options due to the fact that they did not come by our table. Our server was very nice. Took very good care of us. The noise level was rather High. And the salad bar was so so. We all agreed that the food at Rodizio's was much better.

Overpriced! Mainly cheap cuts of beef /meat that were over cooked like flank, and top sirloin and chicken. Salad was good. Way too expensive for what you get.

The meats were
Excellent. My husband never got his salad. The floors were greasy throughout the restaurant and fairly noisy, not as nice as other De Brazil’s that are not in malls. A lot of money could have been better spent at a true fine dining restaurant perhaps . 250 for 3 adults and a child . 2 drinks and 2 beers no dessert

We had to flag down a random server to help us because we spent too much time without even being greeted by a server, as we were served the first meat, we didn't have utensils, we waited for minutes for someone to help us again, we had to call another server to give us utensils. The food was horrible, I was served some sort of beef that was wrapped in bacon, delicious right? THE BACON WAS RAW, THE MEAT WAS RAW, NOT RARE, RAW. The bar drinks took forever, the management was made aware of the issues and nothing was done, over all a HORRIBLE experience.

Very different then before. It felt like we were not supposed to be there. I like my meat cooked rare and it was extremely difficult to get it served that way. And now they’re charging extra for lamb chops even though they’ve always been included with the dinner price. I will not be going back until this pandemic is over and only if everything returns to normal.

The quality of the meat was really good, the staff was friendly, clean facilities and the side and salad dishes were good as well. However, The drink and salad/side dish service took a while (because of COVID I think) and apparently Ribeye is not in season at the time because they have pork chops instead, so that was a little disappointing.

Worth the money. You just have to ask your waiter for your preferred special meat so they can bring it in.

Excellent service and the food was delicious. Everyone took the proper precautions and felt safe while dining in. Each of our sides and salads were served for us keeping the buffet closed. We never felt like we couldn’t ask for other items. We had a great time and will return again.

Salad was almost what I ordered, but it was laid out beautifully.
Filet mignon was well done.
Flank steak was tough
Top sirloin was excellent
Sausage was excellent
Wasn’t the best Texas de Brazil meal but not bad.
Will probably be back

This was my first meal/dinner at Texas de Brazil, as we went for my 22nd bday (: My boyfriend and I’d bill came out too $105- just the two of us, and I’ve been told that the prices have jumped up a bit. The food was fabulous, a lot of beef choices, not so much chicken. My favorite was (of course) the bacon wrapped chicken, but it only came around twice during our whole meal.. which was not too much of an issue because all the other beef choices (beef fajita, steak, filet mignon, etc.) were coming around. They even had lamb that I was brave enough to try, but will not be having again 😂
The service was nice, not amazing, but nice. Our server seemed to disappear throughout our meal and we often had to call on the other waiters for drinks.. he did start out excellent giving us water as well as our mashed potatoes, fried plantains, silverware, and salads/(other kind of/like a soup)potato’s. Then disappeared. Came back and brought my free dessert for my birthday, then disappeared haha. There was not a lot of people, because of covid, so I’m not sure where he went during that time, but that was probably the only real issue I had. Other than that the food was delicious!!!!! The venue was beautiful, restrooms were clean and all servers were wearing masks. They even held my reservation for about 10 minutes because we got stuck in traffic (again not a huge problem because of covid.) I definitely recommend eating here, for a birthday celebration or business party.

Went on a fathers day promotion that included free drinks and free desserts for everyone at the table, the staff tried to pull one over by leaving everything on the bill, normally i would chock it up to beginning of the rush and forgetting but we went well into the day when all the staff would be used to billing the tables correctly. Main problem with the food is that the servers didn’t seem to know medium from raw. The restaurant was extremely loud, the ceilings and walls create an echo chamber that makes you feel like you’re in an indoor pool with a bunch of children yelling. In summary, food was good, staff was iffy, and the location is very loud so dont expect to have a nice conversation.
