With 14 locations nationwide and one in Aruba, Texas de Brazil is a Brazilian Churrascaria that offers guests a traditional Brazilian dining experience, complete with sword-wielding Gauchos (Brazilian cowboys) who circulate the dining room floor serving diners various cuts and types of meat.
About Texas de Brazil
Texas de Brazil is family owned and operated. Started in 1998, the company has quickly grown into one of the country’s premiere Churrascarias, currently operating 14 domestic locations and one international location. The restaurant’s menu consists of 15 grilled meats; all prepared in the traditional Brazilian method over an open flame and carved tableside by the restaurant’s authentically costumed Gauchos, as well as an elaborate salad area, wine list, dessert menu, full liquor bar and private rooms available for special functions.
