Steakhouse
Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other. Here, traditions of Brazilian cooking blend with Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area where you can indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties. Then enjoy the rodizio-style dining that has made us famous. An endless parade of gaucho servers visits your table with skewers of freshly grilled beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage carved directly onto your plate. It’s all served with authentic side dishes of garlic mashed potatoes, Brazilian cheese bread and sweet fried bananas. To complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations. And don’t forget to treat yourself to one of our decadent à la carte desserts.

Like every other trip before, this one was very good. For what Texas de Brazil is, it comes very close to perfection.

Typically when we go, the servers already know or at least ask about what we like. I don't eat pork or red meat at all and they will usually make sure to Make the chicken breast without the bacon and will make sure to find me with the other chicken/shrimp options. This particular visit I didn't feel quite as catered to. We noticed that our "usual hostess" was assigned differently than what we are used to seeing her do. We were able to catch up to her and chat a bit before we left. She helped us understand what was going on and assured us that she would take care of us with the service we are accustomed to next time. With or without the explanation, we enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back.

The experience was super nice because the service is top quality. The meets were very salty and the price was astronomical I would not go back

Was disappointed with a change of food. They took away bacon wrapped jalepenos and replaced them with Brazilian grilled shrimp. The jalepenos were much better.

We decided to try Texas de Brazil on our anniversary as a change of pace. Wasn't sure what to expect, but the experience surpassed expectations! The food was delicious, the staff friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was fun. If you go away hungry, it's your own fault! The staff wished us Happy Anniversary and treated us to a complimentary dessert. Great way to celebrate an occasion. We'll go back.

First time there, fun to go on Mothers’ Day. Food was delicious. Meats were nicely prepared. Salad bar was great, especially the smoked salmon, steamed asparagus, and grilled provolone!

I have had this experience on a cruise ship and I feel the food and service was better quality. I had to get up and get an item from salad bar myself as waiter apparently forgot to get it upon my asking. Did not feel that food or service was worth the price. I paid for 3 adults and 2 children. Would probably not do this again. Perhaps would go on a special occasion if no other options available.

Delicious food! The house sangria was also very good. The staff was very attentive without being intrusive. The ambiance was better further back in the restaurant. I wasn’t a fan of being near the mall opening, but further back into the restaurant is a nice, intimate setting. We still very much enjoyed the restaurant and the meat is amazing!

I have been to many churrascarias all over the world; meat was burnt in many cases and not as tasteful as one would have expected ... room for improvement!

If you are not sitting in the main part of the dining room the meet cutters ignore you. I didn’t get offered multiple cuts and it made me feel I was wasting my money. They would walk right by me and not offer anything. I had a table near the front by the host stand.

The only issue is that we made reservations a week prior. Arriving, we still had to wait before being seated and there were tables open. But has always the waitress was very nice and professional and the food was phenomenal. Hopefully next time if reservations are made the seating will be more prompt

The food was very fresh and seasoned. There were so many different choices on the salad bar. Not your normal salad bar. Bob our waiter was pleasant and attentive. When we wanted to try a particular meat he sent the server over immediately. He was there to refill our drinks and answer any questions we had about the salad bar.

Overall a great experience!

Will never go back on a Holiday again. Waited 15 mins and still never had a server to order drinks. Found someone who did not speak English cleaning up tables, and he finally found our someone for us who told us our server was on break. When we were ready to leave, our waitress was on break again and had to wait another 15 mins for our check. Avoid going there on Holidays.

There was a special Top Sirloin steak that was not a good cut. It was tough and stringy. Also the sausage links had good flavor, but were dried out. This is an expensive place so I expect everything to be excellent.

Our waitress was excellent. Two of the five are regulars, the remaining, was their first time, and they enjoyed it.
It was difficult to get the attention of gauchos on a number of occasions even though the tags were turned to green.

The getting of the meats took an unusual long time to come to the table. I was a little busy, but when you see chicken more than anything else. Well it was disheartening. The sausage, ribs beef and pork, shrimp we had to ask for. And only saw them 1 time.

We already have recommended it to other family,friends and coworkers. It is a fabulous dining experience.All staff pleasant and very attentive. Only 1 food we didn't care for, the sausage. The rest was outstanding.This wasn't our 1st experience, and won't be our last. We still have family to bring.
