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.

“Good times”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Stopped in on a Sunday towards the end of lunch service with family and had a good time. You will get a broader selection of meats during the dinner service, however, you will end up paying more as well. For a family with young children it actually works out better to come during lunch. Don't forget to ask for the salad bar pricing if your kids will not be getting any of the meat offerings. Our server was excellent, she made sure we were always take care of during our meal.

“Great food but service needs some work”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Can't say enough about the food. Meat was fantastic and salad bar was great. The meat servers were very friendly but three times during the meal they disappeared completely for over five minutes++. The waiter was nice but also disappeared for extended time periods and was very slow refilling drinks etc. Seeing this is his primary job he should probably have been more on top of things. Would definitely go back but would hopefully have a better server.

We attended a large meeting. The staff managed to get everyone to the salad bar in shifts and then provided drinks and the meat course was well managed. I loved the salad bar and could have filled up from the assortment without any meat course. I enjoyed all the items. The meat was good and fun - served on large skewers and put on your plate at your request. It is tempting to overeat given the amount of meat presented but limiting your requests to when your plate is empty is the best way.

“omg it was bad”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Where do I start. First I love the concept. I have been to many such reataurants. The buffet was a joke. They advertise sushii which in their mind is fake crab meat wrapped in rice and a seaweed wrap. I have seen better buffets at Bonanza. But it is all about the meat. Hopefully your in an aisle that gets served but some get ignored. This was a big deal for us as it was a family reunion. Had to order a drink from three different people until one came. At ten dollars a pop they should come pretty quick. Some people in our party were very hungry so rather than wait the thirty minutes it took to get a drink a couple of us told them to start. The first meat carver came over and splashed puddles of blood over the table and over us. Disgusting. This happened several times. The manager talked a good game but did mothing to compensate us. The filet tasted like it was old and from yesterday. The chicken was horrible. The flank steak, lamb chops, and sirlion were good. Everything else not so much. Definately not worth the money. Glorified buffet. The mall setting did not help. Had a better meal with free samples at whole foods.
