I told the servers that I have celiac, they neglected to tell me the mashed potatoes have flour in them. When I told the manager what happened, he only took $20 off the bill

Terrific food and ambience! Manager and all the serving staff very well informed about what was gluten free.Most of the cold salad bar is although for something like that I always recommend that people be among the first to go through the line to make sure it's not cross-contaminated by other guests accidentally.The various cuts of meat were all superb and almost all of them were gluten free. The sides they bring to the table are spectacular and while it is a shame the mashed potatoes aren't gluten free, the cheesy bread more than makes up for it. This is a place where you don't want to fill up on the sides anyway! Would definitely recommend if looking for something more upscale.

The food was delicious. The manager came to talk to me about everything I could eat as they don't have menus. All the meat brought to the table is gluten free. The cheese bread is gluten free and DELICIOUS! The mashed potatoes and fries are not, but the plantains are. (These are the sides they bring to the table.) Mist of the hot dish bar is NOT gluten free, but most of the cold part of the salad bar is. I, however, chose not to eat from it as I didn't trust the other customers to not have contaminated it with surrounding gluten-filled foods. I did not have a reaction to eating here. Expensive but DELICIOUS.

Great place for us! We can have the bread thats brought to the table here.. Very few things we cant have off the salad bar, there is a large selection of things that we can have from the salad bar you wont be disappointed. All the meats coming to the table is gluten free! They even have desserts for us and the prices for them is normal!

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.

All meats except 1 are gf. Most of the salad bar is gf. Less options on the hot bar, basically just white rice. On the table, bread(!) and fried bananas are gf. Very knowledgeable staff, walked through everything. Highly recommend
