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.

Food was outstanding as usual. Flank steak was as tender as the filet. Bar and sides are far better than Fogo de Chao in my opinion.

We've gone here several times before and LOVED it. This time we brought more family with us and it was their first time. I don't think it was intentional but it was the strangest thing, they consistently went to the other side of our large table and offered everything but for whatever reason, they skipped our side of the table over and over again. We would even wave or nod (in addition to our cards being on green of course) and they would just move on to the next table anyways. It was just odd. We eventually asked the server to specifically send them our way.

The reason I'm taking the time to write this though is that we were charged $50 for drinks that we never asked for. We ordered some sodas and of course expected to pay for that in addition to our meals, dessert, etc (bill was over $500) but a few people had ordered water and we didn't realize we'd be charged for the water. The kids also all stuck with water but the server brought a pitcher of strawberry lemonade and special glasses for the kids and served them without ever asking us. We assumed it was something special they were doing for the kids for Easter but nope! We received our bill at the end and the lemonade was $15 (not a huge deal but just surprised we weren't asked first) and the water was $35. We'll probably think twice before we go back but the food IS amazing!

There were bottles of red wine on every table. I said that that wine would be fine. The waiter insisted that we taste it first and brought us some from a open bottle. It was good but not normally a wine drinker . Didn’t ask about cost . How much can a bottle of wine be? $50, $60 ? Well when it was all said and done the bill was $120 for the wine. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Other than that the meal was awesome.

Birthday dinner. Waiter was pitching sales from start to stop, which felt pushy and gimmicky. We were given the choice of sparkling or still water, said still (thinking tap water) and were given bottles and charged $6.99 per bottle. Not a fun surprise on the bill. I’m fully vaccinated against COVID but if you aren’t I wouldn’t eat here. Salad bar was with metal tongs used by everyone and touching food (just laying on top) and not cleaned between users. Social distancing not in place- only a couple feet between tables. Place was packed with kids watching cartoons on their iPhones. This one felt way more like a bargain buffet than fancy dining (the Vegas location is way nicer and adult feeling). Overall food was delicious but that’s about it.

They don’t tell you about the charge for water until you get your bill. They also don’t give you an option as they state, still or sparkling. Very deceptive. $26 for four bottles after we said regular water. They state they don’t give regular water because of Covid. But, the salad bar was open and they weren’t sanitizing the tongs between people touching them. Only got 3 different meats and had to wait forever for one that we asked about. Then at one point they just stopped coming to our table even though our cards were green. Hopefully this isn’t a foreshadowing just like the Grille from Ipanema in CDA. After quality went down, they went out of business. Needless to say, won’t be coming back here.

We went for our anniversary. The food was really good but the service was not. I had to track down our server each time I needed more water. And they never took my used plate so I had both the plates side by side while I was eating. There was also no monitoring of the salad bar. I really can’t believe it was open the way it was during a pandemic. They had had sanitizers and each plate station but nobody was using them so everyone was touching the same handles on the food without pre-sanitizing. And typical of a salad bar, people were being inconsiderate and unsanitary. It’s bad enough during normal times but with COVID, it’s even more disgusting. I guess I expected since they were open, there would be more precaution but other than face masks and hand sanitizer, there really wasn’t any extra measures taken.

Everything was great, I just recommended to the manager(when she asked me), that me and my wife liked our beef/steak cooked more well with less red. Some of the cut pieces looked raw inside and we didn’t eat them. Chicken, pork, sausage was perfect! I did notice that at other tables, some others also looked a little hesitant after seeing the redness of the meat after seeing their beef sliced off the skewer.

Such good meat! Pretty good variety but may have more available for dinner service or on the weekends. Drink from the bar was strong and delicious!! Salad bar was perfect compliment to the delicious meats!
We got a complimentary dessert for celebrating a hubby’s birthday there. And they don’t sing to you! All wins.

Don’t usually write reviews but my husband and I went for our anniversary. I reserved a table a few days in advance and wrote specific instructions which they followed. We were seated away from people and were also given free desserts. Everything was on point.

The host and waitress were great and accommodating with us because we had small babies! I would definitely visit again. The food was great although I did eat some steak that was not seasoned very well so it was pretty bland compared to some o had eaten earlier in the visit. Other than that everything was great!

Online it states that dinner is $50 per person, our table of 4 cost us $400. No menus, no prices NO EXPLANATION. One person at the table got a drink with a double shot and the server proceeded to put double shots for all drinks. We each got 1 drink and they charged us $20 per cocktail!! We barely 2 re-fills on our water during the 2 hours we were there, we had to ask for water, and they charged us $22 for water!! NO EXPLANATION! Lastly, we asked about dessert options again each small dessert was not only pre-made, fake tasting, but also $15 EACH. Again NO EXPLANATION! -- Be weary they will take all your money and will not explain any charges and you will not once see a menu for verify price. Huge rip off, we will not be back no recommend this to anyone. $100 per person for a buffet is outrageous, especially at the low class Tacoma Mall

My fiancé and I went on a date a week ago with friends at Texas de Brazil and it was so good we came back not even a full week later. The staff is all very nice and attentive. You can here there smiles through the masks. It’s very romantic and nice for a simple date night or even a dinner party of 6. We have decided that this is our new date spot because the experiences have been so amazing! Can’t wait for the next time we visit.

Overall this was a 5 star visit however when there is a mask mandate clearly displayed on the door you would think that this would be enforced with all the employees. Our server was the ONLY person in the entire restaurant that could not seem to wear their mask correctly. It was always off the nose.

The tables were set a nice distance apart due to Covid which was nice. Hand sanitizer available by the plates and salad bar. They had their usual meat selections and they were all delicious and the salad bar was well stocked with lots of items as well. The only issue we have is the atmosphere is like a cafeteria not much for mood lighting etc.. for a date night feel. The service was excellent and even special request meats were delivered quickly.

We always enjoy our visits to Texas De Brazil, but weren’t as satisfied this last visit. The pork was too dry to eat, and some of the meat was a little tough.
