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.

My husband first took me here the meat was over cooked and really salty, so my first impression wasn’t great. I just took my husband there for my second visit and it was AMAZING! the food was cooked perfect and I had a delicious cocktail, Mango Crush I think it was called. Our waiter from the first time was excellent as well as our waitress from the second time. I love the diversity of the staff and the cleanliness of the facility. I would definitely recommend the Columbus, Oh Texas De Brazil!!!

The atmosphere is moderate. No blaring music, but the sound is of a busy restaurant, because it is such a popular place. The food is always excellent and the service is always good. I go many times a year and always recommend Texas De Brazil to friends, family and associates!!!

This was my second time dining at Texas De Brazil- My wife's first- I had been planning on bring her for several months. Long- story short- My wife loved it! She said she "felt like a queen" with how great our waitress was and all the selections of meat/ buffet foods.

Looking forward to dining again very soon!

P.S. Thanks for the Brownie Points =D

Servers rarely came by the table with meats. Waitress asked if we wanted something again. I asked for a few different steaks. Nobody came by. Waitress came back about 5 minutes later and asked how was the steak. Told her they hadn't come by yet. Waitress said, "They didn't stop by??" and walked away to talk to them and they finally came over. Even before that we rarely saw the people bring by the skewers.

Salad bar was really not impressive this visit. Food was kind of bland. Nothing special. Would have been just as happy at Sweet Tomatoes. Disappointed

When TDB first opened, we were always asked if we wanted all different cuts of meat. Now we had to have our server send the gauchos over. One gaucho was in our area of only 3 tables and went to one table, and didn't come over to us before leaving our area. Having said that, it is a pricey evening for a buffet.

Food was good, tasty and fresh. Service disjointed. Although server checked on the table the resolution took very long. The flow was patchy. We were waiting for a long time for the next item to arrive. It does not appear they are short on staff but it does not appear the staff is managed.

Our experience at Texas de Brazil was just okay. While there was plenty of options for everyone, I was surprised at how little heated options there were at the buffet bar. Most of the items I tried were incredibly over-seasoned, and only a few were worth trying a second time.
As far as the staff, our waiter was amazing. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and took each question and concern seriously - even suggesting an off-menu drink combination that I thoroughly enjoyed. Besides our waiter, the staff was honestly sort of a mess. The host seemed nice, but very nervous - I was concerned that he may have been ill. The meat servers were the worst part of the evening. While there were plenty of options, the servers would roughly and inconsiderately push all plates and drinks out of their way. We had 3 different forks and 1 plate fall to the floor because of this. There were no verbal acknowledgments of these incidents from the staff.
Overall, by the quality of the staff and so-so food, Texas de Brazil is overpriced and underwhelming.

I really enjoyed everything I tried with the exception of the pineapple. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The carvers seem to be very proud of their meats and cut more than I could eat every time, but still a enjoyable experience. The sangria was the perfect, I may go there in the future just for that. Highly recommend.

Celebrated my sons 21st with a couple friends and family. Great experience and he especially enjoyed it. Unique experience and great for those with a hearty appetite. The salad bar was especially amazing for our non-meat eater who sat through our longer stay.

Our server,Adam, did a great job making sure we were getting plenty of attention and getting the cuts we wanted to try. No holding back, plenty of food and never felt rushed. Be selective- we had several cuts before our favorites showed up, but again Adam was great when we requested specific items.

Highlights for us, bacon wrapped filet, sirloin, lamb chops, shrimp and bacon wrapped poppers.

Finished with amazing selection of deserts and complimentary for our birthday boy.

All In all, great experience - no one left hungry.

Overall everything was good. Children's price needs revisited. Very disappointed with the children's cost especially with the amount of food that my children ate. Also, noticed a couple of items that never made it to our table that our group was interested in. Waitress was great.

It's very good food. Would be nice to have more American staples as sides and price is a little high. Would definitely do again just not more than a couple times a year do to cost.

We had 9 in our party with one in a wheelchair and they accommodated us nicely. They asked if we were celebrating any special occasions and we indicated 3 birthdays; but, aside from the waitress saying "Happy Birthday", nothing else was offered. Not sure why we were asked then as most restaurants at least offer something extra for such occasions. The salad bar is quite extensive with many special food items. The crab bisque was wonderful. The gauchos were almost continuous coming to our table with their meats; so, we never really had to turn our tokens to the green side. It is expensive; but, truly a unique experience worth the trip.

I wish you would bring the shrimp back to the salad bar. Not a fan of the smoked salmon you replaced the shrimp with. Others share the same opinion.

Great time. Great food I felt like I was on vacation eating. The salad bar is out of this world way to much to try everything. But everything I tried was wonderful. The garlic mash potatoes were awesome the fried bananas were perfect for cleansing the pallet. The meat was out of the world and it just kept coming I tried so many wow. If you go away from this place hungry you are a very picky eater.

We went for my husbands birthday. We were seated next to a very large party that was getting amazing service and we had to let our sever know no one had come out to bring meat. He said “how could I possibly know, I have several tables!” Not the kind of response you would expect. After about an hour they started bringing out meat but even then we didn’t get all of the meat that is offered. The people that were with us were first time guests and will never return because of the experience. We have been several times but our last visit will keep us from returning. Such a disappointing night, that was supposed to have been a celebration.

We enjoyed ourselves very much. Our only issue would be since we were seated in the middle of the restaurant the gouchos seemed to go along the outside perimeter more often than not. My son and boyfriend wanted sausage and shrimp but no one ever came to the table, by the time they came back around, they were out of food. We have been here several times and really enjoy it,but this was my son and grandson's first time. Was kinda disappointed.

The host & our waitress were amazing & the food was great as usual (there is no better salad bar as far as quality & selection go!) The manager came over to greet us & was very hospitable. The only small criticism we had was that the servers with the meat selections would not always come to our table even though they had plenty of food left and we had the green sign up that we were ready for more. Once we asked one of the servers to send some of the other gentleman over they did start coming more regularly.

Our server was great! Food....not so much. Dry bacon wrapped chicken. Dry parmesan pork. Inedible. And then, we had to ask our server twice to have the men bring us some meat to our table. It was odd. We watched as they circled our table. Walked along tables all around us. Then they came to our table. So, that worked out. Took too long to get any meat however. We didn't want anymore salad bar food.
One of those guys appeared to dislike his job very much. We noticed him yet oh well. He wasn't living with us. Then, he tossed a piece of meat on my plate. Really. It was odd. We hadn't even said anything impolite or rude to him. Nothing warranted tossing that darn piece of meat.
With all the wonderful places to eat in Columbus, we will not be going back to that location.
