The Texas de Brazil is a unique dining experience. They cook the meat on an open flame, and then serve it to you at your table off of a sword. It is all you can eat, and a great way to sample a variety of different flame cooked meat.
The salad bar is composed of mostly olives, deli meats and cheese.
They have some unique items such as grapes in blue cheese. My husband loved this combination, but I did not care for it.
The sushi was just horrible. It was incredibly bland. It was something I would expect to see at Country Buffet, but not at Texas de Brazil.
I have never had so many people serve me in my life as I had at Texas de Brazil. An army of servers will refill your water, take any empty plates, or offer you more meat.
They have a little round disc that you turn to red when you do not want any more meat, and green when you want more. Unfortunately, they did not pay that much attention to this disk, and I was asked repeatedly if I wanted more meat when I was already full. This can get a little annoying, but is better than being ignored in a restaurant.
Texas de Brazil go through great lengths to hide their prices, and it is obvious why. The meal itself costs about $43. This includes the salad bar, and the endless meat. If you want drinks or desert, that is extra. We were too afraid to ask how much these extra items were, so we just stayed with the basic meal.
I do think they are a little overpriced. It is a fun environment, but I think they lack details in their food that could really bump them into the $43 range. However, the restaurant was packed (it was a 45 minute wait) so obviously a lot of people think it is priced appropriately.
With the food, I would have liked more fruit and vegetables in their salad bar, and no cheap sushi. I feel the $43 is more for the atmosphere, than the food. The food was OK, but I have had better at other restaurants (such as The Broker) for a smaller price.
The atmosphere at Texas de Brazil was perfect. It really made me feel like I was living a luxurious lifestyle. The ceilings must have been 20 feet tall. The interior decorating was like nothing I had ever seen before, and I was swept away in the details. It had a very warm, and intimate, feel to it.
I have never experienced anything like Texas de Brazil before. A unique dining experience makes you feel like you are living a grand lifestyle. With the attention of dozens of servers, you cannot help but feel spoiled.
