Description: Texas de Brazil is carving out a whole new experience in dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American "Churrascaria" or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas.Treat yourself to our 50-60 item seasonal salad area including appetizers, gourmet vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As you dine endlessly on Brazilian fare, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink, steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance and service perfection that is uniquely Texas de Brazil.

Awesome meal with so many choices from the salad bar to the countless cuts of meat walking by you. Cannot beat it. Brunch is a great time to go Saturday & Sunday, being only 25 a person. Only down side, only free refills for beverages is the water.

Most people don't consider Brazilian steakhouses as a place to have lunch, but the combination of the closeness of the International Mall and TdeB's Saturday and Sunday Brunch is a winning combination. The offerings were still enormous.
I read that some people did not like the service here, but my wife and I found the service excellent and quick to response to requests. It could be that management is resolving its earlier problems. The salad offerings were less extensive, but better quality than its competition down the street. The meats were of perfect proportion for those who must have one of everything.
Warning: I found the coating on the leg of lamb and similar cuts a little salty, but the carvers will gladly cut you a slice from the next layer of meat.

I'm not much of a red meat eater, but I wanted to try it anyway. I was awesome. The atmosphere and decor was great and they let us see where the food was prepared, it's amazing. The salad bar was to die for and I tasted every piece of meat they had. Their signature drink was soo good, I had two and I also had dessert, but had to take most of that home. I left, full, happy and satisfied. What a wonderful time was had by the group I went with.

Wonderful, unique dining experience, with excellent service by waitress and meat carvers. The salad bar is expansive, with fresh cheeses and meats, grilled vegetables, including a creamy, rich lobster bisque soup. Try the Brazilian sangria, it's strong, but smooth- note, the pitcher is large enough for 4 people; with everything you are eating it's too much for just 2. The meat selection is fantastic and they accommodate your temperature preference (from rare to well-done). The flank steak and Parmesan pork chop were very tasty. Salad bar and meat are unlimited, so you can eat as much as you like. So bring your appetite!

First time here, although I have been to Boizao (a churrascaria) here in Tampa.

Pros - The meats and service were excellent. Deco is very nice.

Cons - Very busy and seemed cramped. Salad bar just ok.
