I wanted to like this restaurant, but I didn't. There is another Brazilian steakhouse a few minutes away and they have much better options for a similar price. I am basically doing a comparison between them. To start with, the manager was nice and walked me through the buffet, but there were several options I couldn't have and they were right next to items that I could have. They had things like bread and croutons on a top level, so they all dribbled down onto the other food. Typical of a Brazilian steakhouse, they had mashed potatoes, fried bananas, and pao de quejo (Brazilian cheese bread) unlimited at the table. HOWEVER, the mashed potatoes were NOT gluten free and that confused me as mashed potatoes are very easy to make GF. The fried bananas also were not GF. We were only brought 3 cheesy bread pieces to begin with and had to flag our server down after 30 minutes to get more. Our server seemed to be managing the bar area as well, so our service was just ok. The beef was fatty and the chicken and pork were dry. The ribs were decent along with the filet, but it was definitely low quality meat. I just wasn't impressed and doubt I will be back.

Absolutely wonderful experience!! I told the waitress I had celiac disease and she promptly brought a manager over. He walked me through the buffet area and clearly explained what I could and could not eat, including the meats. He also explained their preparation practices and answered all of our questions. I was thrilled to eat cheese bread at the table - how often do we get to partake in a bread basket?! Everything was delicious and I had so many great options to eat. This was our first time there and we were so impressed. Will definitely return!

Service from our waitress was subpar. But everyone else was on target. The GM actually walked me around the salad bar and told what was safe and wasn't, along with the meats. The GM also told me that they have dedicated work spaces and work utensils, etc and are very aware of cross contamination.

Really great service and the staff was very aware of gluten. All the meats with gluten were cooked away from everything else. The buffet had gluten-free options. The table bread was even gluten free

I was very impressed by the knowledge of the staff as to what on the salad bar was safe and what wasn’t. The manager took my daughter and I around to go over ever item. All but 1 of the meats are gluten free.

This restaurant was such a delightful surprise! All meats gluten free and the salad bar was phenomenal. Salad dressings gluten free. Manager walked me through gluten containing items. Mashed potatoes were not gluten free but bread and bananas were. Even had 3 gluten free desserts.

The waiter was knowledgeable and sent the chef out to speak with us. He had a list of allergens and took us on a personal tour of the salad bar. All of the meats are gf and were delicious(which, let's be honest, is why you go here!). Also awesome to actually be able to eat the complimentary bread!

May 2023 -- I have been a patron of Texas de Brazil for ten years now. I am a highly sensitive Celiac and have never gotten sick. Each time, someone from the kitchen walks me through the salad bar. The meats are amazing. I am so grateful for this steakhouse!

June 2017 -- I have been eating here for four years no and have not once gotten sick. Just wanted to update since my last review was in 2013. The food is really good and if you are a meat eater it is well worth the price. Enjoy! --

2013 -- This place was amazing. It was $48 per person, but the CHEF came out to take me around the salad bar to tell me what I could eat, and then he came back to check on me two more times throughout the meal. Of the 30 or so items on the salad bar there were only about 5 I could not eat. Also, they make gluten free cheese bread - it is DELICIOUS! I HIGHLY recommend!!

We went for Father’s Day so they were especially crowded. I let someone know at the front desk and she had me write down my allergies and she went to the kitchen. There were only a few things I couldn’t have. Also one of the managers came to our table to check on me and let me know that the mashed potatoes and bananas they bring to the table are not safe to eat. All in all I felt it was a wonderful experience.
