Free cheesy bread when you sit down which is gluten free, amazing salad bar filled with mostly gf options, all meats are gf as well. Pricey but a cool experience, worth it for a nice dinner out in Detroit.

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.

First time at this location. Third time at a Texas de Brazil overall. Always a good experience. All the meats are gluten free. Most of the salad bar is. The cheese bread roll things they bring to everyone's table are gluten free. The manager and our waiter checked a few items with the executive chef (fancy title!) to confirm they were gluten free. They have a few desserts, too. Crème brulé, passion fruit ice cream, and Carmel flan. Check out their website. Pretty sure it's listed there. Delicious food. Always leave stuffed!

The staff will give you a personalized tour of the salad bar and tell you what foods you need to avoid. Staff very knowledgeable about gluten. Large amount of food available that is gluten free.

Would totally recommend this place! They are very knowledgeable and if you ask them, you can get extra wishes. So I just asked to get the Potato Casserole without the sauce, so just fried potatoes and they pulled it of no questions asked. They also have several GF desserts (flan, crème brulée etc).

All the meat is gluten free. If you need more information than that, you shouldn't go here. It's $70 or more per person, so go hungry and don't worry about any of the sides. The meat is delicious, so I imagine the other food is, but I don't know because I've only eaten the meat, as should you.

I usually save 5 stars for dedicated GF restaurants but I'm making an exception. The manager told me they try to make it easy for GF patrons to eat there as he escorted me around the salad bar and told me just what I could and couldn't have. There were a handful of items on the salad/charcuterie bar that weren't GF, and only one side dish was GF. The mashed potatoes that came with the meal experience were not GF but the bread was fresh Brazi Bites that were amazing. ALL of the meats (15 meats are brought to your table) were GF. It's so nice to have a place to go for a nice occasion that gives more than a couple of choices and that I can be confident I won't get sick from. I can't wait to go back.

Their food is incredible! The Manager will walk you around their huge salad bar to show you what is safe to eat. Almost all the meats are GF as well! Bring your appetite as it’s all you can eat. Well worth the price!

This place is awesome!! Once you tell them you have allergies, they give you a paper with all allergies and a list of their food and let you know if it has dairy or gluten. This way you can eat only what you can. The food was amazing! If your celiac and Dairy free like me this is a good place.

Amazing. The server walked me through the salad bar for safe options. Basically the hot stuff on the salad bar is not safe but I wouldn’t waste the space in my stomach when the meat is so awesome. The GF bread is really good but don’t each too much. Safe space for the meat.

Texas de Brazil has a lot of gluten free options and a nice atmosphere. When I arrived, I explained my gluten free needs and the manager took me around and showed me all the gluten free items on their salad bar. In addition, all of the meats that are brought to the table are gluten free and the bread balls brought to the table are also gluten free (made from Yuca flour). The meal was delicious and it was nice being able to eat what everyone else was eating - and a lot of it. I left full and satisfied. They had creme brûlée for dessert that was just ok. $$$

No GF menu, but manager came to my table to discuss the food. He took me on a walk around the salad bar and pointed out what had gluten. All meats are GF and there’s a gf cheesy bread too. Great service, delicious food.

The food is excellent. But last time I was here the manager assured me that all the sides were gf. This time, the manager says the potatoes aren't. That kind of inconsistency makes this a place I don't trust anymore.

Very knowledgeable staff! :) they were super kind and accommodating. They even got me a delicious creme brulee because it was my anniversary. I ate the meats, rolls, and bananas as well. I ignore the salad bar because you get so much food without it and I don't want to risk cross contamination. It is a fun dining experience and very safe for celiacs because I am a super sensitive. 10/10

This restaurant is fantastic! Make sure to reserve a table ahead of time through OpenTable App or by calling them because it can get quite busy. Once you're seated, let the waitress know you have a gluten intolerance. A manager will come out and show you which foods at the salad bar you can eat. He'll then explain which meats you can have. The manager & staff is very knowledgeable! BACKGROUND on the restaurant: this is a high end steak house. They continually serve you with different meats and there's an unbelievably delicious salad bar that comes with with the meal. It's $50/person, before drinks and desert, but it's all you can eat and incredibly good food. Come hungry!

Very knowledgeable! All the meat was GF and a large amount of the salads/buffet bar were too. A bit questionable about buffet bar since it wasn’t in separate areas but mostly stuck to the meat & had no problems!

Absolutely fabulous. The meat was unreal. Everything on our table tasted great. Plus gluten free BREAD?!? I read reviews where people said the bread isn't gf and i swear it is. I asked the manager who took me around the restaurant and said what i could and could not eat. She said the bread is made of starch (i read somewhere that it is tapioca starch). The bananas were so good i ate maybe 4 of them lol. My boyfriend said we should go back tomorrow so it is definitely carnivore man approved. ;) Be prepared to spend some money ($100+) but the experience is well worth it. If you are a sensitive celiac like me no need to fear here. You can't eat the mashed potatoes they serve at the table and some things at the salad bar. I just avoided the salad bar completely and loaded up on meat, bread, and bananas.

We went here for our anniversary. The food was good as normal, except, the cheese bread is no longer gluten free. Such a disappointment! I loved going somewhere where I could have bread. I hope corporate reconsiders this horrible decision!

As of early 2018, their bread rolls are no longer gluten free and we weren't told until we directly asked. Please be careful and ask about everything. We come here annually and were quite surprised of the change.

Almost everything at this restaurant is naturally gluten-free, including all of the meats, and the bread that they put on the table. I asked the waiter to walk me through what I could eat at the salad bar, and he brought out the maitre'd, he was extremely knowledgeable, and walked me through the entire salad bar. Each item at the salad bar has its own serving utensil, so cross-contamination is really not an issue. There are very few items on the menu that contain gluten.

What a great place to eat gluten free! You can call and let them know you are gluten free, they will mark your ticket and a chef or manager will come out and show you the whole list of gluten free foods. Almost all of their salad bar is gf, all the meat, and especially the little cheese bread balls that come out to the table! The bread balls are made with tapioca flour and are amazing. Our service was great and I left full and satisfied !

This place was amazing! There were so many choices to choose from. All meats at this location are Gluten free and delicious. Also most thing on the salad bar as well.

Staff was very knowledgeable. The chef will come out and tell you what of their items have gluten in them or give you a half sheet with that list of things with gluten in them. All of the meat they came around with were gluten free and I was not affected by any of it and I have celiac. Meats such as steak, pork, lamb, chicken, chicken wrapped in bacon, and more. Also have a gluten free desert!

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!!

Everything was delicious but I definitely had a reaction to it. Must have been something on the meats. Service was excellent but be cautious.

The food is delicious! The staff could be better trained on what is and isn't GF but our server was happy to check with the chef for us and even brought us a list of things that contain gluten so we knew what to avoid at the salad bar. He wasn't allowed to leave it at our table for long but it was easy enough to memorize the few items that weren't already obvious. We will definitely be back.

Very delicious and safe. Be sure to ask for a manager to let them know your allergies and they will have your server carry the allergen list with them to constantly double check. All of the meat is GF, and mpst of the salad bar. Even the cheese bread they serve at the table is GF, as traditional Brazilian bread is made with tapioca starch...such a nice treat to be able to eat from the bread basket! Also, the creme brulee for dessert is to die for. I have eaten here 3 times during my trip thus far, and plan to eat one more meal here before leaving. It is quite pricey, but totally worth it! And just for the record, I have severe celiac disease and had no reaction to their food.

Amazing food and service! Meats are marinated with salt, one meat had garlic, but other than that it is with salt only. The manager will walk you around the salad self service bar and tell you what is safe and unsafe to have as well. Sirloins, tenderloins, lamb, pork, sausage, etc. Eaten here a handful of times and have never had an issue. I have Celiac and am very sensitive. They'll make you feel comfortable.

Price. 49.99 per person Service. Great Food. Phenomenal The manager took me around and showed me what I could eat on the salad bar. Basically none of the hot stuff. I also avoid soy for hormonal reasons, and they use soy in some of their marinades on the salad bar. I was able to use straight balsamic and oil for my dressing. The meats were fabulous. I couldn't keep up with all of the meats they tried to give me. Most of them are not marinated. Just use rock salt. A few of them had a soy marinade, but none of the meats had gluten. The bread was awesome, too. The rolls that come on the table are gluten free. Amazing. We will definitely be back, but not too often because of the price. It was about 115 for two meals and two drinks.

This is a traditional Brazilian steakhouse where you are served a variety of meats from a skewer. The manager took us to the salad buffet to tell us what we could eat, and we were pleasantly surprised to be able to eat 90%. All of the meats were safe---and delicious! Even better, the bread is made from cassava flour, so safe. The manager was incredibly knowledgeable, and the service excellent.
