Having never been before, we didn't know what to expect. It was absolutely amazing! The salad bar was unique and delicious. The meats were various and most were delightful. A couple of the white meat selections were a bit dry, but other than that, they were all very tasty. I would highly recommend Texas de Brazil for anyone who wants a great meal and doesn't mind spending a little bit more for dinner.

They say us in the corner which is fine. Food barely came to the table. Spoke to the waiter and manager about it and ensured it would. Someone would bring food right away then it would stop. Very disappointed i have been many times and have not had this kind of experience.

Really very very delicious food! Superbly prepared and cooked sides, beautiful presentation, excellent service. Lots of options for a low-carb diet. Josè was a fantastic server. Wine was very good as well- do wish I had been able to see the bottle. Often hard to hear, spaces were packed. Wish there was a better plan for kids... some way to pay that’s more commensurate with what they actually eat, which is so little. Maybe their no green/red card for them... not sure the solution but the only downside of this delicious dinner is the price! A loyalty program maybe? You get what you pay for though!

The food is excellent as always and those servers are amazing. However the service was lack luster. Waiting over 30 minutes to get drinks brought to the table. Having to go up to the bar to pay our check after waiting another 20 minutes.

Our table seemed to be skipped often by the meat carvers (middle of the row against the windows near the mall hallway to the outside doors). The table in the corner and the one behind us seemed to get served, but the carvers went another direction after serving them. Our green cards were on the table at the outside edge. There was a 15 minute stretch where only the sausage guy came over. We only got service after we asked. Asking did work, so it was fine in the end.

Our server was pleasant. The supervisor was also very nice.

Most of the food was very good. Parmesan pork was tough, but other choices were delicious.

Food was very slow to come out. Had to ask multiple times for certain cuts of meat and sometimes they didnt show up at all. If you charge this much for all you can eat people expect to eat alot and not wait 10 minutes in between a cut of meat

Server was great. Meats were all well done, dry and chewy. Toward end of meal finally got medium rare to medium. Was very disappointed with the meat selection. They state meat is cooked to medium rare but can get more well done if wanted. It was just the opposite.

Our waiter was great, and the food was ok. They didn’t really come around to our table as much as the ones around us with the meats, and they didn’t come around to our side with the one thing we asked for until it was too late.

Not worth the money. The wait for food was ridiculous. We had to ask multiple times for them to bring meat to us. Then it was either still bleeding or burnt. There was no in-between. Didn't matter what we said. Not sure if it's worth trying again.

I was disappointed in the food. I have been to the restaurant in the past and enjoyed the food immensely but the variety Sunday was very disappointing. The selection of meat was limited and they kept pushing the same few options.

I was a bit disappointed that they took the lamb chops off the dinner menu and had to be charged an extra $9 for them in addition to the dinner price! I went there mostly for them, but at the same time, was expecting breakfast items as well or an omelette station! Service was great. Had expected more flower arrangements around tables since it was Mother’s Day! Wait staff very attentive to tables, picked up dirty dishes immediately, refreshed drinks! Waiting time was minimal upon arrival! Promptly seated!

Long waits for the waitresses, rarely stopped by. Low variety of meats and almost everything had some type of pork with it which made it difficult for my friend who doesn’t eat pork. Eg filet with bacon wrapped around it.

We frequent this Texas de Brazil location whenever we can because it's our home base.
While I have always said this particular location varies inconsistency this was by far the worst visit I've ever had here.

We ordered a picture of sangria for the table which even after asking for three times did not arrive until we were half done with our meal.
We all but had to beg for our sides which again showed up about halfway through our meal.
The meats were coming out raw, not medium not medium rare not a little on the bloody side literally raw. We had to interact with the manager at least two times to get certain selections to the table and even then everything was coming out raw.

Our waitress was non-existent I've already talked about the meats the best part of the meal which is always good was a salad bar.

I have to say that having not been out to dinner in a while this was a huge letdown knowing what the normal quality is.

I’ve always enjoyed the salad bar which usually includes a seafood pot or stew which is very delicious they have stopped serving it the waiter says one of the cooks it allergic to seafood
That was my whole reason for going in on Sunday I was very disappointed to say the least. Plus they now up charge additional for the lamb this was included prior to the pandemic Still very disappointing

Food quality has changed. Numerous items went around more than once, then new items came out after we were done. It would be nice if each item came out at least once before other items came out again for the third or fourth time. Now an additional charge for lamb chops which was always included in the price before. It’s a shame the quality has changed.

We had an amazing date night at Texas De Brazil. The service was amazing the servers knew what they were doing to food was delicious. We will be coming back soon! The only thing I had an issue with was the seating, 6 foot distance was not put into account when seating guests. I was concerned because we can't eat with masks on.

Or waiter was great!, food was great. One of the men who came around with the meat kept walking past our table as if we were invisible. He would walk right past us, no eye contact, no acknowledgement at all and go cater to a table behind us that hadn’t been there for as long as we were. He had gotten so bad that my boyfriend had to stop him and ask him what kind of meat did he have and could he have some of it. The guys response was I’m sorry sir. At that time we felt as if he knew what he was doing, because why I say sorry? That kind of threw our appetites off a bit, other than that everything else was great.
