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.

I have been to many Brazilian restaurants in the past including brazil. The BBQ here is great, don't get me wrong, but the service and drinks were poor. First it was like pulling teeth to get them to bring meat.. Seems with 4 people they are not interested, they rather serve the 6 plus size tables. And worst was the caipirinhas were horrible. First one was too sweet to drink, when complained they told me maybe too much simple syrup? Who uses simple syrup? Second had less sugar but now taste like soda. Third you can see the limes were like not even muddled. Fourth was no better (and yes I paid for all four). They need a bartender that can make the most famous Brazilian drink in a nice Brazilian restaurant!!!! Never waste $75 again. Thanks, I brought 3 people to show them a good time and I was embarrassed.

Salad bar and service was very good but that is where it ends.Tastes like they use a cheaper cut of meat and at $43 I was expecting the best. Had much better steaks at Outback and Brands fot a third of the price. Save your money and go to a regular steakhouse.

Meat just keeps coming at you. Very well prepared. Solid side bar. Great with a son with an egg allergy. A chain I can't wait to visit again.

Know going in that you are going to spend at least $60 a person, probably just under $100 per if you're planning on drinking. As long as you okay with that, you'll love the experience. The food in awesome as well as the service and environment. Make sure not to fill up on the initial salad bar offering. Try the soup; it is always great. Also, don't fill up on the cheaper cuts of meat. With a little patience, you'll be getting the finer cuts in no time. The little friend plantains you get at the tail end of the meal are my favorite. Feel free to ask for a second helping of those.

I have been here several times. For birthdays, father's day, Easter, etc. The food is always great, and the service is superb. They always have wonderful specials available if you sign up for the email list. The atmosphere is just amazing; an excellent location for the place. I have been to several Brazilian steak houses across the country and this is the recommended Brazilian steakhouse for the Brazilian food connoisseur. This has got to be the best Brazilian steakhouse in Michigan.
