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 Γ  la carte desserts.

This is a special event restaurant for me and I only go a few times a year. Usually the dinner service is excellent and you have a team that makes sure that beverages are refilled, plates removed and table is kept supplied and clean...this didn't happen on my last visit.
The food was fantastic, the selection was great and if you left hungry or unsatisfied - only you are to blame.
For the price of the meal, the service should have been better but I will try again on the next birthday or anniversary to see if improved.

Texas de Brazil is our favorite among the Brazilian BBQ restaurants in the DC area. The meats are prepared with the traditional salt rubbing used in southern Brazil, where the cooking style originates, and Texas de Brazil uses the same quantity of salt as is typical in that region. Some of the other Brazilian places use less salt, which reflects the taste in the metropolitan areas of Brazil -- Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. How much salt is to one's taste will likely determine which version you prefer. We also like Texas de Brazil's salad bar and sides best, particularly their new dish -- fish with coconut sauce. The service is always quick and friendly. The price for the meal is not cheap, but reasonable for both the quality and quantity.

Waiter was horrible. Asked for water, as in out the tap, and received a $12 bottle of water. Asked to split the check 3 ways and the check was not split evenly. One check was $80 more than the other. Went for my mother’s birthday and she was given a glass of cognac that was presented to as a birthday drink on the house but ended up being $10. I have been to other Brazillian steakhouses before and they were awesome. My experience at this particular one left a lot to be desired. I will not be returning.

Don't fill up too much on the excellent salad bar or the fried bananas and rolls they bring to the table. Make sure you save plenty of room for the meat! If you prefer not to go for the meat, there is certainly enough great food in the salad bar (and this puts salad bar on a whole new level) to fill the hungriest tummy.

One note of caution is to make sure to cover your lap with the napkins. Some of the meats are very juicy and drip on the table - potentially on your lap.

Everything food item today was juicy and flavorful, only downside was we were placed near the kitchen doorway so all the meat was being passed by us. So we rarely got anyone coming to the table. Server was attentive, but didn't clear plates when he would stop by... other than that I can't ever complain!

The staff were really helpful, but the food was not that good. The meat was overly salty, and undercooked. I enjoy medium rare, but the meat was very raw inside making it unappetizing. It was also extremely loud and difficult to speak with the people next to me.

Started off a little slow. We arrived a few mins early for our 445 reservation. Still waited to be sat even though it was mostly empty. Once we started eating the meats were very slow to come out. Some of the Gouchos hit other tables where we were and just walked right by us. Seemed odd. Some of the warm sides had gotten cold by the time we got our first meats. Most were great as usual except the Brazilian sausage was over cooked and very dry and the garlic sirloin (our fave) has basically no garlic taste. Overall it was just ok. This was the only time out of many visits where it was subpar.

This is definitely my favorite Brazilian steakhouse, after visiting all other 3 known places, TdB is always consistent with the quality and taste of the meat, the Gauchos always come and never ignore you and they ask what is your favorite cut or what you'd prefer the most.

Been coming there for years now. This last experience was not the best. My girlfriend and I just wanted to go on a nice dinner date. There were many open tables but we’re sat in a corner next to a loud party of at least 8. 3 tables around us were dirty and our server made us seem like we truly didn’t matter. He was a little to nonchalant when it came to our table. Food was excellent as always, just could’ve been better with the service

I love Texas de Brazil in all the other locations that I have visited to include Short Pump, Florida, and DC. However, this one was the worst. Service sucked, took a half hour to get a drink, a soft drink. Food was not brought around consistently. When we asked for medium well, it was brought, burnt and/or completely dried out. Even when it was done, the taste was not what we are accustomed to from Texas de Brazil. I understand that it was the holiday but the quality and I shouldn’t have had to suffer.
