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.

I can not say how impressed I am. I told the waitress I am gluten free she got the manager who personally walked me around the salad bar area. He sent plantains to me instead of mashed potatoes. Their mashed potato’s are not gluten free. He checked on me several times through out the meal. All the meet was cooked to perfection and all is gluten free.

Went to Texas De Brazil for Valentine’s Day. Almost all the meats are GF except the spicy something or other. The incredible Brazilian cheese bread IS gluten free. The white rice is gluten free. The other sides were not. The salad bar had quite a few options and they said all dressings were okay except Caesar not made in house so I was suggested to avoid. The mashed potatoes, French fries, etc NOT GF and not made in house so I was suggested to avoid. There is someone there named Anna that knows everything and will walk you around the salad bar. Anna was super knowledgeable, our server wasn’t as much, but was willing to check, which is what really matters. No gf desserts. They had gluten free marked on my reservation. No issues. Nice date night and I’m super full.

They have a dedicated GF menu on line. The wait staff brought over the manager when I asked about GF. He walked me around the salad bar and kitchen area pointing out the GF options. Delicious.

I order from this place all the time, it is delicious! You can’t eat everything but what you can eat is enough options. There is a allergy menu online to be able to identify what sides are gluten free. You can eat all the meats no problem and the cheese bread.

The server told me exactly what I couldn’t eat and that list was really pretty short! I loved the bacon wrapped chicken. Only downside was that no desserts were gluten free.
