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.

This place is located right off main drag downtown. The food is great. Salad bar is terrific and the meats are plentiful. Service is fine, the food really comes at you fast. This is not relaxing dining to sit and enjoy. No complaints about the food at all. The place has a very upscale look and over the years has really gotten popular. Sure it is a chain, but it does try and have a local feel. The one thing to be aware of is that it is not cheap. $45 for the full dinner. Kids and salad bar are half. it does add up.

First off, I only go here on special occasions, as it does get expensive quickly, but it's definitely worth it if you're looking for a great dinner celebration! I've only ever been for dinner on weekend nights, so if you go then, be sure to reserve ahead of time!

The service is always friendly and prompt. I've experienced a minimal wait for my table, but I always arrive early too. The greatest part of this is the experience!

You get access to what really is an amazing salad bar, with select meats and cheeses as well as soup to start off with, but save room for the meats! They typically have a dozen or more varieties of meats to choose from and as long as your card is flipped to the green side servers will come around and ask if you'd like some.

Also with your meal you get unlimited mashed potatoes, as well as cinnamon, fried-bananas. THESE. ARE. AMAZING. Seriously, the potatoes are good, but the bananas are incredible and one of our favorite parts of the meal. Ask for condensed milk with your bananas, you won't be disappointed. We treat this like a dessert because after an hour of eating all the meats that I can, I'm truly stuffed!

Dinner can be pretty expensive, but if you want to celebrate a special occasion it's definitely worth it! I know lunch time is cheaper so I'll have to try that someday!

We came here for Father's Day, and had such a good time. So many different choices of meat are available, as well as a salad bar. And, if you still have room after all that, plenty of dessert choices as well.
I recommend coming hungry and skipping the salad bar.

This place is a carnivore's dream. Meat walked TO YOU on sticks and as much of it as you want? My husband loved every second of it. As a vegetarian, their salad bar is extensive enough that you don't feel like you're missing out either. Plenty of options to choose from, including hot sides and sushi. Pricey, but definitely worth every dollar!

The salad bar was extensive and delicious, and would have made a delicious meal by itself. However, the grilled meat was excellent! Our three teenagers did not eat $45 worth of food, but the price was fair for a fun and different eating experience. The service was not great. We had a reservation, but still waited 45 minutes to be sat. Then, we were sat in a side room, so it seemed like the Gauchos didn't come by very often. We ordered wine while we waited, which was about $15/glass and was mediocre wine. I would suggest the traditional Brazilian drink, Caipirinha instead - the lime flavor was delicious. All the dessert choices are listed in with the buffet items, which makes it seem like they are included in the $45 meal, but they are not. Of course, you will eat so much that it is unlikely you will have room for dessert.
