Steakhouse
Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other.

Here, traditions of Brazilian cuisine blend with generous Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area – a feast for your eyes as well as your palate. Indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Next, an endless parade of gauchos visit your table with skewers of freshly grilled meats carved tableside. Choose from perfectly seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, cooked over a wood charcoal fire the way cowboys of Southern Brazil have prepared it for generations. It’s all served with authentic side dishes and to further complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations.

The pros:
- The meat was delicious once it finally made it to our table.
- I enjoyed the salad bar, most notably the smoked salmon, lobster bisque, and potatoes au gratin.
- The atmosphere and decor were very enjoyable.

The cons:
- Even with a reservation, we waited 30 minutes to be seated at our table.
- There was almost no meat being served except for 2-3 varieties. Very little was brought to our table. A good thing to be noted, is that when we asked for a specific cut they did make an effort to bring it to us.
- We had a very long wait between times our waiter came to help us.
- They use a tablet and card reader tableside to pay. While paying, the waiter specifically asked how much we would like to tip and watched as I made the payment. I felt it was extremely unprofessional.

My husband and I frequent Brazilian steakhouses for special occasions. This was our first time at Texas de Brazil in Houston. The quality of food is definitely comparable to other similar restaurants. However, the service left so much to be desired that we will most likely not be returning.

The food was not very good compared to past experiences. Many servers consistently skipped our table thus missing out on a number of meats. When wife would ask for meat to be medium well I was medium at best. Most likely will not return again.

Started off with the salad bar and had to wait at least 20 min for the meat to get to our table. Waiter ask if everything was fine and told him we haven’t got any meat yet. Restaurant is nice and atmosphere was great.

Birthday for my husband. We did not have a waiter come to greet us after we were walked to our table. We sat there waiting until they decide who will be our waiter. Finally a lady came. Our dirty dishes were not taken away, my husband had to ask please help to take the empty dirty bowls and plates away. Once finished we our salad plate, we had to wait for to come around to ask her that we are ready for the meat plate. We waited some more minutes. My husband asked my son to go get the salad to use because she was did not come around to our table frequently at all. My son went to get the plates, then she brought the plates to us. We saw that the other waiter at the table very frequently came to the other couples table nearby us. Upon finishing eating she did not asked about the birthday occasion on the reservation. But when we asked for the check to be processed, she quickly came around. The food was a little too salty though. We will definitely keep in mind our experience since it was suppose to be a special occasion. Hence we did not order any dessert from the restaurant when we could have. I just told her that we are full.

Overall, everything was great! Great ambiance and romantic section in the back for couples! A few of the meats were really dry like the garlic pork and pork loin. We loved the salad bar and all the other meats with the bacon wrapped chicken being our favorite! 😁

Host gave us a wobbling table, we complained and got a different table. 10 minutes later the host sat another party on the same wobbling table and complained too. The restaurant was half empty but the host kept assigning the bad table and reassigning people. Not learning? The main server was just okay and not very helpful, the guys serving food will barely speak English and were rude. The restaurant needs higher standards!!

It was a busy night. We felt as if we constantly had to flag servers down just to get some meat. It almost felt like we were invisible. The Grouchos would pass by several times without even coming to our table. We asked our server who told us she’d get someone but we kept waiting. The meat options were not as diverse a selection as we’ve had in the past . We’ve dined here several times and enjoyed our experience but this evening, missed the mark.

I went there for Valentine’s so I knew it will be crowded however that was not the problem. The problem was that they didn’t had enough servers distributing the meat in 1 hour i was only served twice and that was the lamb and the chicken. I was very disappointed because I wanted to try all the different meats. Next time hire some more people for days like valentines.
This was my first time coming here and i dint want to come back again because im afraid i will lost my money because servers cannot provide food aften.
Drinks were good! I didn’t eat much but i got drunk.

Went for Valentines, had a 7:00 p.m. appointment and got seated by 7:35, which was not a big deal. Once seated the main waiter pour our water, we got our salads and upon completion waited for him to bring our plates. After getting his attention, he said he would bring them. About 10 minutes later we got up and got our own plates from the salad bar. It took us a while to get the first meat server's attention. After that only two or three more serves came by, and then the main waiter kept coming back asking if we were done. It seems all they wanted was for you to seat down, get a salad and move on. Very poor service for Valentines.

So, first off I’m extremely hesitant to book anything on Valentines Day as restaurants usually are short staffed, greedy and just a downright horrible experience. This Valentines Day I decided to book a reservation at Texas De Brazil (our favorite Churrascaria) and roll the dice and I’m happy to say I did because the wait time was less than 10 min to be seated, server immediately got our drinks, and the meat gauchos were in abundance with fresh meats perfectly cooked and seasoned to my liking. Also, I appreciated the fact that they were turning away all guests whom didn’t have reservations as the flow felt just right. Hats off to a job well done and also, thank you for not charging some overpriced “Valentines Day Package” like some of your other competitors as this is just greedy and exactly why I will remain loyal to Texas De Brazil!!

The service was horrible. Waiter didn't bring us side dishes until we asked (twice). He didn't ask if we wanted drinks and didn't come to refill our water.

The staff bringing around the meat was few and far between. We were there for an hour and a half and were only offered about 1/2 the items they were to have available.

I would not return to this restaurant. Very expensive for a marginal meal.

V-day dinner with my husband. Amazing food as always. It was quite a bit more busy and noisy but it was V-Day. Always my go to spot. Always get an open table reservation.

Minimal servers, our table was passed over several times for meat when the surrounding tables were served. I had to yell at servers for them to come to our table. We only had 4 pieces of bread per basket for 3 people and the refills on bread and potatoes was extremely slow. It appeared the tables with Black patrons were ignored. We will not return. Chama Gaucho and Fogo de Chao has better service.

A little unorganized initially for the first 45 minutes that they were open. Could have been because of Valentine's Day. However, I had reservations for 4:15 pm so I thought they should have been more prepared for this day. Overall, food and service was good as usual!

Not your typical buffet style restaurant, If you like meat this is the place for you. When you get to your table you are given a card with green on one side and red on the other, as long as the green side is facing up Gauchos bring freshly roasted meat, still on the skewer, to your table hot off the rotisserie. The Gauchos will continue to bring all of the various types of meats to your table until you turn your card to red. No worries about leaving this place hungry! This is hands down best Brazilian steak house I have been to! The meat is slow roasted over a wood charcoal flame and it is delicious!

All meat cuts were tender and moist. Except for the beef ribs, it was dry and barely edible. Dessert was OK.
Cocktails are good

Was too loud for my wife and I to have a conversation? Meat servers were out of meat by the time they got to us? We’ve been here before but the overall experience has really went down......

This was our second visit to Texas de Brazil and we visited for our son's birthday. We made a reservation several days out but when we arrived we were asked to wait for a few minutes as they prepared our table despite there being a number of open tables available. After about 15 min we were finally seated directly next to the salad bar in the loudest area of the restaurant. As there were only 3 of us I enquired as to whether there was anything else available and received a negative nod of the head, not even a verbal response. Despite the poor seating and lengthy wait for our service to begin we did enjoy the meal. My wife had just the salad bar which she very much enjoyed and my son and I enjoyed the selection of meats as well as the sides. So ambiance and noise were a strong negative but overall we enjoyed our evening.

I believe the wait staff is new. He seemed a little flustered, and forgot to come back for water or drink refill requests. But that’s ok. We all have to start somewhere!

We were there for our anniversary and were put next to a large group of about 25 and the staff was moving tables and chairs over our heads. The staff could have moved the chairs and tables to the other side of the group without putting us in potential danger.
