Welcome to the height of fine dining. Welcome to Tex
Bowl of House-Made Lobster Bisque
We enjoyed eating there. It’s too costly to eat there often though unless you can put away a lot of food.
It was great, always is! One of our favorite place to go.
If you enjoy meat cooked to your liking this is the place to be. Lamb, pork, beef, sausage, chicken, as much as you can eat. Wonderful unique dining experience.
DELICIOUS food, clean and inviting salad / soup bar, kind and courteous staff, with an element of fun and energetic overall appeal.
Very crowded and noisy. Some of the meat was tough and chewy
Amazing waiter and everyone very nice and accommodating
This was our second time there and we loved it. Salad bar is awesome, the serving style is also awesome. Servers are attentive and professional.
Very expensive and in my opinion not worth the price. Our bill was $300 for 4 of us. I would happily spend that much on a dinner if it was outstanding but this was mediocre at best. We didn't hate it but still, probably will not return.
Great atmosphere, great food, amazing service. Overall a great dining, word of advice come with a big appetite.
My husband and I love to come here and feast on some amazing food! The staff is super friendly!! Never had a bad experience!
The food was amazing! The staff were super nice and very professional!
We liked it so much that we bought a gift certificate for a friend!
Had the most amazing server...(Maria?) Super sweet and attentive.
It may seem expensive... but trust us you will not go away hungry! Very good quality and unique choices. Go in with a big appetite!
Food was great our waiter was awesome the only issue I had was it took for ever to get a cocktail .
We had a very large group and unfortunately I believe this is why we were passed multiple times by the meats servers. We were offered lamb and sausage multiple times, we asked for flank steak and chicken. After an hour we spoke to a manager and then they started coming back around however again we had a large group so before half our table was served they would run out of meat and then we would have to wait for someone to come back. Love the food but will never go with a large group again.
It was our first time dining w/ you. We will definitely return!! The food was absolutely delicious !!!
I had to find someone to bring me some more water. As we were leaving there were different meats coming around. They should have been offered sooner. Maybe they werent ready yet.
we visit Taxes de Brazil in any US city that we visit as we don't have this chain in Canada.
the meat is amazing, the buffet is a second to non
Too costly, food is not great. Wouldn’t recommend.,
wonderful experience, amazing food, wonderful with handing a food allergy as well.
The food was very good, the meat just kept coming and they were very helpful about bringing anything you wanted to have. The salad bar was very nice and the sides excellent. The place was very busy and the service was very slow as there were not enough servers helping the tables. Our server looked like he had too many tables to wait on so it took a very long time to catch his attention and get anything if something was needed. The meat servers couldn't have been more plentiful and helpful. The place was extremely busy for 5 PM on a Saturday with lines out the door waiting to get a table.
Very unique dining experience with excellent service and great food. Make sure to go hungry!
The bartender and our waitress were fun and had a great sense of humor. The meats were over cooked.
Horrible service by the server, bar and the people serving the meats. If it wasn’t for Maria who stepped in to help we would have left and never gone back. Manager took off drinks, one of which was never made right after 2 attempts, but never even had decency to come over in person. Worst experience ever here, and we’ve dined here a lot both personal, and large business dinners. Very bad.
Food was excellent! Could have been a little faster with the drinks but overall enjoyable experience!
If you love a variety of meats, an amazing salad bar and warm specialty bar for dinner, this is the place to go. Great date night or adult family night.
Brett I was our server. He was attentive. Good was excellent as always!
My family and I have eaten here numerous times and this time we had terrible service. Our waiter who we didn’t even get his name, took drink orders and then food arrived before our drinks. Our server was nonexistent and we even asked one of the hostess to send someone over and we were completely ignored. Such a shame to be celebrating 2 birthdays and this meal to be such a disappointment. We were completely looked past for a larger table. Our table was a party of 9, such a shame. The only positive part of our meal was Tony one of the gentlemen bringing meat to our table. He was friendly, funny and if there was a certain meat we asked for he did his best to get it to us. Our little one even knew him by name by the end of our meal.
Enjoyed our time and meal!! Salad bar selection was impressive!
All the recommendations we got were accurate. The food is amazing, the staff top notch. Had to keep remembering to turn our cards over to the Red side to keep the food from overwhelming our plates.
Really great food! Our server was great and overall we had a great experience!
Poor service. Definitely not worth the money spent and the meat was too well done , we asked for medium rare
Fresh food, attentive service, clean environment, great ambiance and decor!
I may be the few people who think this but....I was NOT impressed with the food. The salad bar was good, the service was great BUT lets be honest...we go for the meat. That is where my family was NOT impressed. All the meat was dry and cooked for people who like well done and then some. If you like it dry, tough and well done then by all means....this is your place to go to. Not the dessert was AMAZING. That however is NOT included in your all you can eat.
I have eaten at Texas de Brazil many times but tonight I was a bit dispointed. The food was not as good as usual, meat was well done or barely cooked at all. One of the meat Carver's who we often see recognized us and went above and beyond to get us the meats we wanted that he personally cooked himself because we were not getting meat cooked right. Service was great!
Sarah and Daniel did an overall amazing job. Easy to make reservations for a large party. Very accommodating when we added people, great service. food is very generous in portions.
Great place! We will be returning to this place to eat "meat on a sword" again!
Our first time at the restaurant and it was wonderful. Everything was delicious and the staff were superb. The salad buffet was phenomenal. We look forward to returning.
This is our go to Birthday dinner spot - love the salad bar and the amazing variety of meats to chose from!
Was asked more than once if we were celebrating a birthday or an Anniversary, My husband and I said we were celebrating our 25th Anniversary. I'm not sure what the significance was to asking us this because we weren't treated any differently. It was our first time visiting the restaurant. It was extremely loud making it difficult to have a conversation. The plates for the salad bar were so hot that it scalded our hands and it didn't want to put my cold food on it. The servers with the meat wiz by us or would show up at the table even though the disk wasn't flipped.
