Description: Texas de Brazil is carving out a whole new experience in fine 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.

“Fantistic Service and Food”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

All of the hosts, servers, gauchos, etc. were perfect. I'm not easy to please and therir service was fantastic they were courteous, helpful, friendly, attentive, etc. Quoting another review, "the prices are not for the faint of heart" but everything in the restaurant is upscale and gourmet. It's not an "ordinary" salad bar the steak is perfectly cooked and will come to your table as long as you'd like. You won't leave hungry. I would recommend visiting on a slower week night. It was snowing outside ant there weren't very many people dining when we went on a Thursday. We will definitely be visiting Texas de Brazil again.

“Great food, atmosphere, and excellent value! Come hungry!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Not your typical steak house, or buffet. You could feast off of the salad bar alone, but the steak is so good. Get the Filet wrapped in bacon.

“MY FAVORITE PLACE!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Part of the scam is that they have a great salad bar....MEN, STAY AWAY! Don't bother filling up on those empty calories! They bank on that. Don't eat ANYTHING BUT THE MEAT! The food is PERFECTLY prepared. Served on the spit by an excellent wait staff brought right to your table. Prices are not for the faint of heart, but the food is the best EVER! If you LOVE MEAT, expertly prepared, go here! Men LOVE this place. Take your MAN here for his Birthday, he'll love you for it, but it will become an expensive habit!

“Brazilian BBQ at it's best.”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Having spent a couple weeks in Brasil and being fully informed as to what to expect in a
churrascaria, I can be pretty picky. My recent dining experience confirmed that TdB is the
real deal. Where you tell is in the Brasilian specialty meats -- especially the picanha. TdB's
picanha was as good as I had in Brasil and that is saying a lot. Also not to be missed are
the lamb chops (literally out of this world) and the flank steak which was just flat out delicious.

Now that I think about it, the filet mignon was also outstanding. All else is very good (chicken legs, sausage and beef ribs are great). A surprise are the bbq pork ribs -- an obvious nod towards American tastes because you do not see this in Brasil.

Of course, all of the salad bar offerings are outstanding also. But be careful here! Every piece taken in means less room for meat!

“Excellent afternoon”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This the kind of place where you can relax and visit with your guests all day. The salad bar is huge (although, I do not recommend filling up on this). The meat is amazing and the service is wonderful. I highly recommend this place.
