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.

Had to wait 30 minutes although had a reservation. Salad bar is small and not worth the price, especially compared to Fogo de Chao. Meat was over cooked. Restaurant was really busy and loud. Overall not a great experience.

The servers were more concerned with feeding the larger parties and often passed by our party of 2. The food is delicious though when you do manage to get some.

I had read lots of reviews about this site location and they were horrible. I was scared to go. My reservation was at 7pm I arrived 10 mins late we were seated 20 mins later NOT BAD from what o read about wait time. My table was seated right in front of the salad bar which was awesome, I was able to grab any gauchos walking by. My only complaint was the filet was so over cooked hard to chew. Lamb chops and shrimp by far was the best. I would suggest if you get anything off the salad Bar do small portions. If not you will not be able to enjoy the selection of meat choices because you are so full. I would also suggest if you can get at least two or three different meat selections at one time. It will give you the opportunity to enjoy your company and meal without trying to watch for Gauchos to come by with the meat. Overall it was a nice experience to try, but not a place I have to visit on a regular.

I was very excited to come here for the first time however we were stuck in a corner with a table next to us of about 10 people that were very loud. Since we were in the corner the people with the meat hardly ever came by we were offered meat the first time and had our buffet plates already gone. We had to ask the waitress to have them come over multiple times. Very disappointing.

I have been to this location a few times and the past 2 times seem to be getting worse.
The salad bar was out of potato salad when we were up there, the beets were impossible to get, myself and other customers had a hard time.
The waitress was pretty good, but more than one occasion we sat for over 10 mins with no meat, they just kept walking past us while our cards were on green side up. I like the meat rare but it was beyond rare it was pretty much raw, to the point it was difficult to cut because it was so rare. When we ask for some to be cook medium rare it took our waitress asking twice to get it for us. We were celebrating our anniversary and wife's Birthday as well and we were both disappointed, for the price and now two bad experiences you have went from my favorite restaurant to one I do not need to visit again.

Not sure why the servers are always forgetful and too busy to be attentive to our table. We frequently come once a month because it's my son's favorite place. But every time we do service is horrible!!

I was put at a small table by a window and cash register. Had to pull the table away from cash register so my date didnt have to keep worry about being bumped. Also, since we were the last table in the row, we didn't get a steady passing of the meat. Luckily, the waitress saved the experience by asking us what meat we wanted and had them bring it to us. Basically, the seating arrangement needs work. They should put a party of 2 at a table after two group tables.

The food was excellent, our server was wonderful. We did have a problem where no one came to our table to offer us any of the meats for over a half an hour. We had our coasters on green, And we watched them come out and circle the edges of the room, tried to make eye contact and get their attention but we didn’t have any luck. We finally let our server know, and she made sure to send people to our table. I think they did not have enough of the meat servers for the size of crowd that was in the restaurant At the time, which was 7 pm on a Monday.

I usually have a great experience while dining at Texas de Brazil. However, this visit was a little different. The server did not acknowledge my party until I went to the hostess to notify them of the issue, so we were left waiting for about 20 minutes despite servers passing us by. The lobster bisque was also bothersome. It tasted as though it had been sitting out all day. It did not taste like the creamy, buttery, lobster bisque I usually get. It tasted like tomato soup. Also, the meat carvers weren’t as polite as they usually are. Overall, my experience could have been a lot better and I was very disappointed by my visit.

This unique service style was cool to experience in person. There was a few large groups that carried most of the noise. We knew ahead of time to take it easy on the salad bar and leave room for the main course. We were only presented with 6 of the 10+ entree options that servers walk around with. Our server seemed to try her hardest to get them to come over to our table but it didn’t really work. I recommend flipping your card right away to get a chance at more of the entree options.

It would have been nice to have a menu that explained exactly how the service style worked. Our server did a great job trying to explain it however because of the noise we were left with more questions than answers.

We might come back, but for the price, and lack of entree options, we won’t add it to our list of restaurants we frequent.

Went for my boyfriends birthday, the servers were nice but seemed preoccupied. The guys who brought the food around were nice but it seemed like there wasn’t enough food to go around. It definitely wasn’t worth the $100 that night. I may have been just a fluke night but I won’t be going back anytime soon.

Tables next to and around the salad bar and server's stations (registers) are too tight and do not feel intimate enough. Multiple people are always standing directly behind or next to you. Very uncomfortable. Patrons and workers are so close at times, that they are touching my chair, jacket or arm.

The food was indescribable. The Top Sirloin and Filet was seasoned to perfection. The beef is prepared to medium rare, but my wife explained to our waitress she doesn't like medium rare and the waitress notified the kitchen staff and they continued to bring medium wee to the table. Our waitress was excellent. The wait staff and servers are constantly checking on the tables to ensure no one is waiting too long for any items or drinks.

Went for my birthday dinner. Checked in promptly at 6:55 for a 7 PM reservation. Watched 5 groups of various sizes that arrived after us get seated. When they noticed we were about to walk out they finally took us to a table at 7:20 (the restaurant was less than 1/2 full) so I didn't really understand why we were waiting to begin with. We are sat next to a table of rowdy drunk men who were making disgusting comments about other diners, clicking their silverware to get the waitresses attention and screaming her name to get her to come over while she was attending another table. Again, not sure why we were seated next to a group of drunks in an empty restaurant. To top it off the food wasn't as good as it has been in the past, very little selection of meat.

We had a 6pm reservation, got seated at 6:45 pm.
Had to ask for the servers to stop skipping our table when they walked right by us with fresh skewers. We never even got to have some of the meats because they never once came to our table.
We got offered sausage and bacon wrapped chicken so many times I couldn’t even count.
The food is always delicious but this time my overall experience was very lacking.

This restaurant doesn't honor reservations. Makes you wait and Wait is too long. We left so I can't attest to food, but if service is this lousy one can draw one's own conclusion on that. They obviously overbook. I bought one of their VIP cards and now feel that I got taken. Would probably never get seated to use it before the card expired.

Only if you your service does not start going down hill as my family had to wait for over 30 minutes for anyone to come around with meat. All of the sides were cold once they finally came by after several request to the waitress. Never had this issue before. We are frequent customers here.

It was very busy - and we had trouble getting the food sent our way - the waiter even apologized for the "sub par attention" our table received. He said - just know I did the best I can, so don't be mad at me.... thinking he just wanted to make sure he received a good tip.

We had a reservation but had to wait for quite some time to be seated. The front desk seemed unorganized since the restaurant was pretty empty at the time. Once we were ready for the meat, we could not get anyone to bring it to our table since they would run out before getting to our area or walk right past us without acknowledgment. After we said something, the waitress and eventually the manager addressed it. We came back for a specific drink that was recommended to us by a previous server, but no one recognized the drink we described and showed them from their website pictures. Once they tried to recreate it, it was horrible.
