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 held a business party (40 people) here and it was possibly the best idea and event ever!! Not only is the food fabulous, but the service is top notch! The food is fabulous, if you don't like something, that's ok, try something else! The salad bar is beyond spectacular, again, if there's something you don't like keep looking, you'll find something you'll love. Juan and his staff make sure every customer that comes in the door feels like they are a VIP. Their attention to detail and desire to provide an experience you will never forget are immeasurable and make all the difference. They kept things moving and kept everyone happy and made our event go from a ho-hum business party to and extraordinary dinner event. People were still talking about it days later!

You will definitely want to fast before eating at Texas de Brazil! Try everything!

You'll be tempted to fill up on the salad bar, but save room for your main meal. The Gaucho servers come around with all sorts of meats, including beef, chicken, lamb and sausage, much of which are cooked rare to medium. Just let them know if you want your servings cooked more and they will accommodate you. The decor is very nice and the staff very friendly. The location is on the far north side of City Centre- park in the garage on the far north side and it's a short walk. Join their email club and receive periodic coupons including their once a year offer for a VIP card. For $60.00, we purchased a card that entitles us to 12 meals at half price which can be used all at once or individually.

Food and service were great. Salad bar was good. Loved that they had mint jelly for the lamb. I haven't seen that in other restaurants of this type. I don't think it's Brazillian, but I like mint jelly with lamb. :) Our only complaint was the noise level. Several times my husband and I found ourselves shouting at each other to be heard. It pretty much rendered any casual conversation pointless. Also have determined that if you have a few drinks you might find navigating the house of mirrors in the restrooms a bit challenging. I didn't have anything to drink and still had trouble finding the door to get out. Overall we enjoyed it, but would not choose it again if we wanted an intimate quiet dinner for two.

They get good points for the beautiful decor and great service, awesome location in city centre . I felt like i had several waiters for my table and the Gauchos went out of their way to get me the cuts i wanted. However the salad bar is lame, lobster bisque had no lobster pieces in it, and i dont feel i got all the cuts they have offered to me. The house special and filet are exceptional. All in all i will say this, dinner for two $100 quality cuts of beef, chicken, lambchops and sides as much as you can eat in a romantic hip atmosphere you cant beat that!

We had a large group of 14 and were taken care of very well. It starts out by going to a salad bar that is unlike any I have ever seen. Not your typical lettuce and toppings. This had all sorts of different tasty items to try. As soon as you get back to the table they start bringing around the swords full of meat. Lamb chops, sirloin, chicken, prime beef and many others and you tell them how much you would like and they slice it off. They continually come around until you look like you can't handle anymore. Then they offer some incredible desserts which of course you tell yourself you aren't that stuffed and can fit in a little more. And it is well worth it.
