Texas de Brazil 101: An All Night Adventure if You’re Up for It
Texas de Brazil finally opened in Tyler off of Old Jacksonville Rd. and I was so excited to try out all 16 meats they had to offer. So, some of the radio crew including myself, Michael, Mandee and Shawn went out, had a signature Brazilian cocktail, and gorged ourselves to the point of regretting not wearing sweatpants to dinner. The video above gives a good idea of what we experienced at the new local Churrascaria.
I'm going to start with the meat. The Brazilian Picanha and the Garlic Picanha were far and away my favorite meats of the night.
However, I loved everything that hit my plate so I'll name off a few other highlights that I kept flipping the green card for. Because if you didn't know already, you stay seated and the Gouchos bring the meat to your table as they slice off whatever part you ask for.
My honorable mentions from their menu include:
- Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon
- Beef ribs
- Parmesan-crusted pork loin
- Brazilian sausage
Then you have the salad bar, which serves some greens and a whole lotta everything else ranging from deviled eggs, smoked salmon, prosciutto and cheeses, lobster bisque to 50 other items.
Dessert was also a whole ordeal where they bring you a platter of all of their desserts, explain each one to you, and even pair some of them to some dessert liqueurs.
Texas de Brazil opens at 5 pm on weekdays and 4 pm on weekends. And the kicker, you can sit there from 5 pm to close eating whatever your hungry heart desires. Manager Presley Runnels said it best:
We don't want you to come have a quick dinner and then catch a movie. We ARE the dinner and a movie.
