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.

We always enjoy the endless selection of meat. The food is delicious.

The beef was delicious. The lamb was very good too. The drummetes were over cooked and the ribs tasted like they came out of a crock pot. Salad bar was great. I just was very disappointed with the ribs and drummetes.

Good social distancing - removed 75% of tables instead of checkerboard seating, waiters all wear masks, saw them sanitizing tables after guests left, etc. Salad bar is awkward; can't go up there, have to select what you want from the online menu, show it to the waiter, they take down notes and then fill the plate for you. So it's not quite TdB of old, but close enough - food and service is still excellent. Worth the money

I would like to start off by saying I’ve eaten here many times. But this time was very different. The food was great but the service was terrible. We waited Atleast 10-15 mins to get different types of meats to come to our table. I profusely asked the main server to do something about this but he never did not expect this kind of service because I’ve been here so many times.

We are frequent fliers with Brazilian steakhouses, we don't have one where we live, so we seek them out when we travel and we go to them several times a year. However we had never been to this particular location. I have to say, the service we received was absolutely horrible, we've actually never experienced neglect like this at a Texas de Brazil. My husband and I each went loong periods of time (10+ minutes at a time) without anyone bringing skewers of meat over to us, the server was MIA at least 75% of the time. We quite literally had to flag people down just to get food, which is the opposite of how it normally is at a Brazilian steakhouse. Really odd experience, very disappointing. Bad enough to warrant never going back. Too many good Brazilian steakhouses to waste our time on this one again. I do not recommend them.

Meat was too well done but after we complained, they brought some better cuts. It is too bad we could not make our own salads, waiter got our orders wrong.

The host was so nice and with just a little conversation we mentioned we worked in the ER and they gave us a nice discount for it at the end which took us by surprise. Everyone was incredible and so was the food. Perfect anniversary on top of it being our first night out since the quarantine began.

The waiter was great, but getting food was challenging. We had to wait 30-45 minutes for food each time. First the price it shouldn't have been like that

Unfortunately, the new setup because of the virus spread is not welcoming. I hope Texas De Brazil returns to its previous glamor, but for the time being we will enjoy the delicious memories we have of this place.

The two problems we had were 1) your people at the front desk do not coordinate -- I called when we got there 4:06 for a 4:00 pm sitting and the person I spoke with said there is onoly one group in front of you. She evidently did not tell the person managing the sitting. So after 5 groups going in ahead of us I went in and the manager on Sunday was extremely rude and would not listen and we waited -- finally I told her that I had called 30 minutes ago. She either did not understand English or was just rude. The food was good except filet overcooked -- but the waitress was very good.

We will have to think about coming again as the value was not as good as previously.

Mothers Day, food was fantastic. We weren't too happy being back by the kitchen though. Also, and this may sound trivial, but when we were finished, the waiter asked if we wanted desert. We were all full so we said no. He told us, take it to go, it comes with the meal. Myself and our daughter didn't want anything. My wife decided to take a piece of key lime pie with her to go. Well, it was NOT part of the meal because we were charged $9 for the pie. I know, not a lot of money. But, we were full and didn't want anything anyways. Wife only got it because he said it came with it anyways. I would have been extremely upset if we all took something to go and been charged $27 extra.

I might recommend to others, but warn them about everything adding up.

Sad. First let me say that I completely understand the predicament the restaurant is in. There were only 4 tables occupied with less than 20 patrons. I understand that the salad bar can't be stocked as usual. They can't have every cut of meat constantly cooking for the small crowd. The service was good and they kindly brought snacks for us to have with our drink on the patio. My issues are with the pricing during the quality cut back. The drinks were 14$ each. Not expecting that, 2 of us spent 56$ on cocktails. I would expect them to offer happy hour prices even if the bar is closed.
Since the buffet salad bar has become on demand, you don't really know what you're getting. I understand the concept but the selection is greatly diminished along with the quality. The meats are on demand as well so you can't choose the portion you want. Again I completely understand and sympathize with the restaurant. However, I think the diminished quality and diminished ambiance of abundance would call for some pricing incentives until they can get back into full swing. Even if the service method changes the quality can return. Until they have parity in pricing with quality, I won't be back.

It was great to be out and I felt very safe. There first night opening up so they were feeling there way through. There isn’t a public Salad bar. You are given what is on the salad bar and you tell them what you want. It was fresh and the best part of the meal. You are only allowed three meats at a time at your table. And if one person wants chicken and the other doesn’t or meat cooked a different way, that can be a problem. Over all very nice

We love this restaurant. We make plans to come here a few times a year as part of our periodic weekend getaways. As usual, we were greeted and seated by friendly staff and our service was outstanding, as was the food. The meats are always seasoned and cooked to perfection. And, the cheese breads, whats not to love about those. Our favorite restaurant by far, only wish there was one closer to home.

Enjoyed the experience but the noise level was a little louder than expected. Additionally our server came to the table once during our evening. He mentioned to us how busy he was and apologized. For the price of the evening, I felt this was unacceptable.

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.
