Every time we visit a Texas de Brazil we leave full and happy. This visit was the same. This was our first time at the Pittsburgh establishment and it didn't disappoint from the staff that greeted us to the bartender to the servers.
Excellent salad bar and the lobster bisque was delicious. Nice selection of meat entrees and the servers explained what they had and if it was medium rare, medium, etc.
This was the first visit for our guest. He couldn't stop thanking us for bringing him. I think Texas de Brazil has another life long customer.

Texas de Brazil was my first and only choice for my annual birthday celebration dinner. The food is spectacular here. I love the different items on the salad bar that you just don't get at any other restaurant - love the tabbulee!!! And the meats, oh my are they succulent. I have told many folks about this restaurant. Love it.

Loved everything about this place. Don't know where to begin. The hostesses were super friendly and catered to what we needed. The waiter was awesome as well! He knew everything about the menu. Whenever we needed him he was just around the corner. The buffet line was great. Gigantic choices with tasty dishes. Remember to try the wine mushroom and the lobster bids soup!! Fantastic-O!!
The meats!!!! OMG! Never ending and each one had their own unique flavor. The waiter/butcher comes to your table with them. They range from rare to fully cooked. I recommend you choose small and eat slow cause there's plenty to come. We had to come back the next day cause it was so good!!
Make your reservations online to get your $25 coupon too.
I promise you won't be disappointed!!

Go hungry. The salad selections are fresh and tasty along with soup and hot sides, but the meats stole the show. Various beef/steaks, chicken pork and sausage. The house specialty beef was the specialty for a reason. It was very flavorful. We went early on a weeknight and there were very few tables to start. By the time we left the dining area was getting petty full. They do take reservations so if you are not an early diner I would recommend reserving a table.

They lost my reservation so 4 adults and 7-year-old and a baby stood by the check-in counter for 10 minutes. One of the two women said she found us and would have our table readied, but that turned out to be untrue as both of them continued to look for our reservation, the confirmation of which I had in my email on my phone. One of them finally said, "We trust you, so this way please." "Trust us??!!" When the waiter showed up and asked how I was, I let him know in no uncertain terms. Two male managers soon appeared, a few minutes apart and apologized profusely. Both left their cards. When I got the bill, it had been reduced by 20%, so they made a very nice effort to rectify the initial seating issue. We all loved the food and service from that point and I suspect the service is always that good and we will return. One word of caution: To make it a decent value, go hungry and eat slowly , otherwise you will end up filling up far too fast and turning down delicious items for which you had no room.

This restaurant was excellent. I went to celebrate my significant others birthday. The food was excellent and we more than enjoyed trying all the different meats. The service was excellent and the servers were friendly. I after my experience in this restaurant I recommend it to multiple people I know. I can't wait to attend this restaurant again.

We were treated like royalty, starting with the kind hostess who seated us. The friendly restaurant manager, Jairo, was refreshingly authentic Brazilian ! Bcz I've recently lived in Brazil, that was a pleasant surprise ! I so enjoyed chatting with him in Portuguese for a few minutes. And the cuisine was delicious, as always. Our waitress, Cinda, was prompt & courteous. It was my bday & what a fabulous place to celebrate it. Well worth the 1.5 hrs drive from Sharon, PA to Pgh.

A very unique and memorable experience. It was our 15th wedding anniversary and as soon as we arrive there was a power failure in the area. Alarms we're blaring both inside and outside the restaurant and there were no lights. The staff was great - escorting us to the salad bar with flashlights. Eventually the alarms went off and since we were seated right next to the kitchen door, the staff was still above to serve us what meat was already prepared. They were terrific and we were served the full menu. By the end of our "candle lit" dinner we were the only ones left in the place. The manager comped us for one dinner and also my espresso and our desert. You guys are the best as always!

The food was great! It's a bit pricey and I definitely can go often but we had friends in town and wanted something different. The service was terrible. We waited 15 minutes for our check and then she came with the dessert tray. We said that we weren't interested in dessert and she rolled her eyes and said that she "HAD TO" show us the dessert tray. Then said "Is that ok with you" in a very condescending tone. We told her that she was being very rude, please bring us our checks. It was another 10mins before we got our checks. I've never been treated so badly by a waitress.

The Lamb was Fantastic, the beef superb, did not have anything that was bad. Some items are on the salty side but I found them very tasty.
Our server was on top of it impeccable.
The Gouchos the guys with the meat were great.
Go hungry! I was sad when I was stuffed had to take desert home.
We will be back

The only thing that I thought was a little odd - the hostess asked if we were there for a special occasion and when I said "yes" it was my husband's birthday - nothing else was said. Not even a Happy Birthday. Why ask if you really don't care. Other than that the food was very good, the service was great. Really enjoyed the whole experience.

Food fantastic! I am a meat eater and the meats were wonderfully delicious. My wife is not such a big meat eater. She ate some meat but LOVED the salad bar. You cater to all eaters! Great job and wonderful staff. They make sure your doing great! Only thing we found out was that since I told them it was my wife's birthday they did NOT mention that she could have a dessert free.

We enjoyed another evening at this Pittsburgh location. The place was firing on all cylinders and was very satisfying in all categories. Looking forward to another dining experience soon. I know there is a spot for private comments, but please pass this review to the Pittsburgh location. Kevin and Mary Gibbons.

This was our 4th or 5th time there. Only once was it just 2 of us, usually 5-6 people. Many times we had to find the gauchos, aka meat servers. This time it was rush rush rush. It was fathers day and we checked in almost an hour early to see our wait and we were seated immediately, which was fine. But the Gauchos never looked at our meat card. We were still on first course and they just kept coming and coming! Offered my vegetarian daughter meat several times. We weren't even done with our 1st course and the meat was flying on our plates (with our OK) with the second course. If you start refusing, they stop coming over, so we were afraid to refuse!

Very good! We went for Father's Day and he was very impressed and can't wait to go back. This is great, because they gave all father's a certificate for a free future meal and I'll get to go again! I love the cheesy buns they give at the table and our server, Jay, was always quick to refill the basket for us! Get the Brazil Cheesecake (you'll need it to go!) because it is AMAZING!
