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.

We were "first-timers" who had several friends recommend this place. Glad they did! The overall experience was unique for us - the extensive salad bar (very good) followed by a profusion of meat entrees was exceptional. Given the range of meat options (filet; flank; ribs; lamb chops; sausage) we were surprised at the quality of offerings. The "gauchos" circulating through the restaurant with their speared meat with knives at the ready were friendly and totally accommodating with respect to choice of meat and the desired level of doneness. My only caveat for dining here is to bring your appetite. This not the place for the faint-of-heart carnivour.

We went in March for a friends birthday. Our reservation was for a large party mid week and they put us in a private room just off the main dining area. It was perfect for us.

The antipasta/salad bar was to die for, so many different items to choose, I only wish they could offer just this as an option because it certainly is filling on its own.

Now onto the MEAT, I mean that is why we are here right?!? We tried most everything that was on offer. The house garlic sirloin was probably my favorite.

The house mojito was perfect. We even managed to enjoy the Chocolate mouse cake, which was divine.

The service was impeccable, especially considering our loud and large party.

We would return again for sure!
