The food was great but I commented to my wife & two kids that our table, which was in a corner between two rooms, must have been in a vortex that made it invisible because the wait staff would literally walk right past us and service the tables around ours - not just once but on many occasions. Most of the time I would have to put my hand up or make eye contact for someone to stop by the table - yes all 4 of our cards were on green. At first it irritated me but then after a while I just became amused and started asking servers for what I wanted as they went through the room.
And the biggest laugh of the night came after paying the bill I watched the waiter walk right past our table with the receipt. He had to turn around and come back into the room to return my credit card to our table. Unfortunately for the waiter the tip reflected the lack of service.
Great food! Protein heaven...
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and he has such a blast! The service was great as well as the food! We left miserably full and incredibly satisfied!
Amazing Food! Amazing Service! Worth every penny!
Meat was good but since I am allergic to pork, to pay $42 for only like 6 skewers and salad bar is kind of expensive.
Salad bar was ok. Kind of boring.
The reservation process was glitchy as it showed available times for dining but wouldn’t accept the reservation and defaulted to an error message about server issues. Once we finally got a reservation and arrived at the restaurant (30 minutes early) we were told “sorry we are fully committed tonight, you will need to wait until your reservation time”. The restaurant had empty tables and an entire section vacant. I asked why they couldn’t seat all those waiting at the empty tables and was told by the manager on duty they didn’t have enough staff. As it is a self-serve buffet, and a wandering group of meat carvers, it didn’t make sense. Multiple parties came in and were turned away by the hostess with the same comment “I’m sorry we are fully committed tonight”. When I pressed the manager further, pointing to the empty tables, he noted the meat carvers often forget to attend to that section of the room, leaving guests dissatisfied. So they decided not to fill it with paying guests. I was astonished that he would be turning away thousands of dollars of business while leaving empty tables and waiting guests. After a moderate wait, our party was ushered into the empty room near the front door and served by an outstanding waiter and support staff. But not before multiple parties had been turned away, and in some cases with clear directions and recommendations for alternative restaurants. We were the only party served in that room of empty tables. One after another, multiple guests were turned away by the greeter with the same cheerful response “I’m sorry, we are fully committed tonight - as they looked at the empty tables and vacant section. The food was good and the table service amazing! But the business and the customer experience are lacking. I am confident the thousands in lost revenue (and perturbed guests) that night may be something that will compromise the restaurant and its viability in the long run. It could be so easy to fix.
wish the price was a little cheaper. the price for 2 people plus drinks was almost as much as going to ruths chris steakhouse. but the food was excellent
We go here often and the service is normally great. However, tonight I had to ask for the filet and when it came it was dried and over cooked. We must have been at the end of the meat service because every time they came to us the food was gone, cold or over cooked. It appears to be under new management but I’m not positive about that. Oh, I was offered sausage 5 times, leg of lamb 3, flank steak 2, sirloin 2, lamb chops 1, chicken parmigiana 1 never any pork tenderloins. It was like going to a lower end Brazil’s buffet.
We started off on a great foot with dinner in a very crowded dining room and then the delicious meat started coming around for about 20 minutes and then it stopped and they NEVER came back. We hailed down server twice and asked for more food and drinks to no avail. Complained to server about lack of meat and she never said a work or had a manager visit table. It was horrible service and we were told it was because we came on a busy night and were seated too far away from the main dining area. SO, I would suggest you ask for seating next to the salad bar!!
Oh- the meat that we did taste was wonderful- wish we could have had more of it!!
We placed a reservation, and upon arrival were placed in a small area in the front that resembled a corridor. There is a table that is on display to the walker-bys on an elevated platform over our seating area, and their bar storeroom next to our table area. Our waitress was phenomenal for the entire experience. She told us that the restaurant was bought out all night by a single company event that had over 300 people coming in waves. She said that they weren't taking any reservations for the night, but OpenTable had not been updated, so they honored our reservation. The salad bar is well prepared. This is why I gave a 2 star rating, rather than 1. When you go to Texas de Brazil, you go for the meats. We could have eaten Brazilian sausage all night, was offered parm cheese chicken wings once, lamb chops 2 times, beef ribs once, (leg of?) lamb 5 times, garlic sirloin once, bacon-wrapped chicken once, and bacon-wrapped filet once. Mind you, we were there over 3 hours. Lamb doesn't seem to be something anyone wants in the restaurant, so you see that make the rounds for quite some time to get rid of it. Our waitress had to keep "calling" for the meats to be offered to us. My son and daughter made their meals out of 1 sausage that neither liked, and the salad bar. Yet, their meals cost over $20 each. We tried their lemonade offering that cost $12 for a pitcher, and since everyone that had some has gotten sick. The only 2 people not to get sick, didn't have lemonade. My mojito was made with Sprite instead of Moscato, because of the local laws, but still costs as much. I don't go to places like this not expecting to spend a lot of money, but I do expect to get what I pay for. We eat at this type of restaurant regularly, yet were not impressed by this location in the least. We will not return to this location.
The food was wonderful and the service was great. I will definitely be going back!
Wonderful food and excellent service. Thank you...
Our main concern was that we ended up wasting most of the meat offered to us because it was too rare. We specifically asked our waitress for well done meat, but we're only offered it one time. The rest of the time they said they were cutting a well done piece, but it wasn't. Also, there was one time where 5 men were offering food to our table at the same time! It overwhelmed us. I also didn't like being watched every second by managers and other staff. They should have been walking around. I felt like I was in a prison cell! The choices on the buffet were wonderful, but I would have liked warm pineapple instead. Beautiful surroundings and a short wait to be seated were nice. We could tell that the meat was of a very high quality, but worth the price.
For a brazilian steakhouse they still had to improve a lot. American palate will take it, but anyone else who knows how to eat will be disapointed.
None of the meat servers know how to do their job, cutting meat is not as simple as the ones working at the night.
The thickness and size direclty change flavor and texture.
The staff seemed new so maybe they still learning, but not at my expense again.
Everything was delicious. The meat came around quickly and there was no waiting. The service was good. We enjoyed visiting with the meat servers as they sliced our meat.
Attentive service. Excellent meats and salad bar. I would recommend.
I enjoyed my experience, food was great. Everyone was very nice and friendly and attentive. It is more money than I would normally pay for dinner. But it was a birthday dinner so I didn't mind. I was disappointed that I didn't get free refills on my soda. I really enjoy drinking diet coke with my meal. Also it would have been nice to know that I was being charged for each glass before my bill came. I guess I shouldn't assume refills are free. I just haven't been anywhere that I was charged for refills. That won't deter me from coming again. I will just stick with water next time.
Was in town for a conference and took my colleagues there for dinner. As always, sumptuous salad bar was all too tempting and all-you-can-eat delicious well-seasoned meats served by friendly waitstaff. Extensive wine list but they were out of the first two vintages that we chose, then the manager came to our table and personally selected and served an excellent alternative vintage matching the same price range. Great food, great service, highly recommended!!
Great food, good service, outrageous price. There are other Brazilian buffets that have the same food at a much better price.
Me and my girlfriend had a great date night! We were celebrating our valentines weekend and we had a great dinner. The manager Tyler was very nice and even re made the cocktail for us because the liquor was too strong! Great customer service and great food as well! Definitely recommend going there!
It was simply amazing
We used to love this place and would eat there regularly. This last visit was the worst. The meats were not cooked through enough. When I say think mean the lamb chops inside was luke warm at best and still gooey. Other meats were lacking to. Everything thing felt rushed, like they were tring to cater too large of a group. Cooking meats as fast and short as possible to accommodate. Normally my wife and I rant and rave about the passionfruit limeaid. They served us watered down limeaid to start. When I asked for a new pitcher after stating it wasn't right the sever didn't get us fresh glasses just topped of our already full glasses from a new pitcher. Just stupid! I drank water the rest of the evening. I was asked if there were any meats inwould like more of. I responded that another bite of the bacon wrapped filet mignon would be nice. After 15 min of waiting I asked for the check. The end of my night was spent thinking about how much more enjoyable my previous meal had been at 🐼!!!
My wife had never been to a Churrascaria and I surprised her last week. She had a blast seeing a different style of restaurant. The proteins were cooked and seasoned perfectly and the salad bar was amazing!
Food was not well prepared. High priced. Service was lousy. The week before we at at Tucanos. Better prices and better food. Texas De Brazil was a huge disappointment.
Fantastic. The music playing overhead is odd, but it is forced upon them by corporate. Other than that tiny detail, a wonderful experience.
Expensive but worth it with the high quality of the meat and the salad bar. The desserts are not that exciting and probably are not worth the cost so I would skip them. Not really Brazilian and so if you are looking for traditional Brazilian food, this is not it.
We love the food and would have had a great experience except we felt forgotten by our waitress. The people bringing the meat around were great and came often; however, our waitress rarely even stopped by the table and never asked if we needed anything. We had to grab a few other waiters just to have some used plates removed. We also had to wait a long time for the check and we brought small children with us so all of this waiting made it a poor experience.
I been to other more accesible price wise Brazilian restaurants and they are ok. This restaurant and their meats are outstanding not to mention the salad bar and the service is phenomenal I will go back and I’m sure will continue to go back
I couldn’t stop savoring the meats! They had many different cuts and tastes. They cook to order if you want too! My wife said the salad bar was good! The Manager came and checked on us a few times. I loved the team work. Everyone there was concerned about us. Although it was a full house we were treated as if we were the only ones there!! I am coming back FOR SURE! It’s pricy but worth it!
Not sure if our waitress was new or not but, the place wasn't that busy at the time and you would think for the amount of money we are paying that the service would be top notch. In fact the server that was serving the table next to us is the one who had to help refill our waters on two different occasions. Our original server was very nice but just wasn't on her A game. I did leave a fair tip but mostly because of the great service the meat servers did and the friendliness of the 2 managers. Wasn't completely disappointed, we will defiantly be back!!
The staff was friendly and the ordering was low pressure. The servers showed great humor and knowledge, offering suggestions and ideas. We tried a lot of the meats and I was very impressed with all of them. The salad bar had a lot of amazing options, and everything we tried was delicious. The wines that were recommended with our meals were perfect, and well worth the price. Deserts are great, we were offered suggested drinks to accompany them and were not disappointed. All in all I would highly recommend this for a couples special occasion dinner. With a good tip, the two of us left spending just over $150, Which for the once a year frequency we go, it was very worth it and I'd do it again. I would not suggest bringing young children that have trouble holding still or tend to be loud, this is not the best place for them.
The food and ambiance are always wonderful at Texas de Brazil and has quickly become my favorite Brazilian BBQ in Utah. Seeing that I am myself Brazilian I think that says something. What really stood out to me on this visit was the service. The manager came and seated us himself and even placed my napkin on my lap. Then the waitress was absolutely delightful and attendant with a nice upbeat attitude. The bar tender came over personally and provided reccomendations which we loved. All in all this was a 5 star visit and we will definitely be returning and recommending any friends that have not yet visited to do so as they will not be disappointed. Thank you for a wonderful memorable night.
not sure if i would recommend it. After the first time we went , my wife and i loved it .. we just had salad . ( on diet ) . Then we can back at Christmas and brought our adult kids . they loved it .except the waitress and the men carrying the meat around ignored our table we had to
Wave them down every time we wanted food. ( I think because we were off to the side. )
So we went again just last weekend . we made a reservation.
1st. when we got there we had to wait 18min. with reservation..
2nd. we got the same exact table as last time when we were ignored.
we all laughed. and thought well last time was a fluke.
NOPE we were wrong . Same result as last time . waitress was awful. we had to ask for our bananas & potatoes half way through because she forgot . meat men ignored us waitress ignored us & it took 27min. to get drinks from bar .
So i would recommend the food. i like it but the service is bad. & for the price i would rather go to rodizio at trolley square. never had bad service there.
We got there early for pur reservation so there was a little wait to get a table but they were very accommodating. The food and the service was awesome. Everything tasted delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a good place to eat where you get great value. The only thing I would want to change would be that the meat carvers would come around more often. I didn't get to try all of what they had to offer.
Overall, I would call this restaurant a "meh" place. We were seated about 12 inches from the servers station. That meant they were scooting in and out, opening cupboards, etc. Not sure why they would choose that place over many other open tables, especially when I made a reservation a month ago. The food was ok, with some hits and some misses. We loved the meat, which is a showcase. However they would often skip our table while the skewer guys were out serving (and yes our card was green). Sometimes, the pieces they carved were one bite-sized. I thought the salad was pretty basic. Loved the bananas and specialty cocktail. Considering we spent nearly $120 on 2 dinners and one drink each, I would never go back. It is way overpriced for what you get.
Fantastic selection and flavor of meats, wonderful salad bar, delicious desserts!
Fantastic food. Awesome atmosphere. Wish I had a bottomless stomach. I wanted to keep eating forever! Everything tasted amazing.
