Manager walks you around the salad bar and lets you know what is safe and what isn’t. The Brazilian cheese bread is great! All meat is safe. Fun atmosphere.

The majority of the menu is gluten free. Only meat option that has gluten is the sausage. Such good cheese bread!

The food here was terrible and overpriced! With the facade of a fancy restaurant, they served canned beans, bland cheese, and raw vegetables. Definitely not vegetarian friendly, but they have a lot of meat —which we didn’t try because the salad buffet was terrible so we didn’t feel like paying double to eat meat. There are gluten free options, but the food is simply not worth paying for. I don’t understand the hype at all!!

Great place for gluten free! If you ask, they have an allergen list. The meats are all gluten free, and many things at the buffet (salad, potato salad, tomatoes, rice, and a TON of other options) are also gluten free. I’d definitely ask for the sheet of gluten vs non gluten free foods to get specifics but there are many options (although less so for vegetarian). I ate twice here since it was close by and did not get sick either time! Lunch is cheaper than dinner but the selection of meats is slightly different and more limited, but it was still great!

Terrific food. As others have noted, all the meats are gluten free and the staff takes care to show you what is safe on the salad bar. I took one star away, though, because none of the salad dressings were gluten free, which really limited the salad bar options

Meats are gluten free and most of the salad bar is also. Last year when we went here the manager walked me through everything they offer to let me know what I could safely enjoy. Tonight when we went back there, I informed the waitress I cannot have gluten, and she proceeded to bring things out. At the end of the meal after watching me eat the whole dish of mashed potatoes she informed me that they were not gluten free although they were in the past. I'm currently sitting in bed with a reaction on my anniversary. Very inconsistent here. Be careful.

I have eaten here several times. Most of the salad bar is gluten free. The chef will come out and walk you around to tell you what is safe and what is not. The meats are all gluten free.

The staff was very knowledgeable. I talked to the manager. She said that she used to have a server that had celiac and would eat the Brazilian bread all the time. It was really good. And the Pincanha steak was so yummy! There are a couple of side dishes that have gluten so it’s not 100% gf. I would definitely go again

I ate there and it was delicious. Didn’t get glutened. However, the staff did not walk me through the salad bar. My waitress gave me a sheet of the GF options but the salad bar items were not labeled. A manager went through the salad bar with me once I asked. The tabbouleh contains gluten and it was next to the GF mozzarella balls. I found pieces of tabbouleh in the mozzarella for example. I’m a new Celiac so I’m sure this is very common. The meat is GF and the fried bananas and cheese bread. I ate a lot of those ;)

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!

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.

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. $$$

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!

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.

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 !

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!
