Wow, I'm surprised there is so much hate on Texas de Brazil.
And as for this...
Awesome, compared to what? Have you been to Fogo de Chao before? That place is quality, not Texas de brazil.
The salad bar at TDB is waaaay better than Fogo. The tabouli is better, there actually IS lobster bisque, and I don't think Fogo had smoked salmon either.
Honestly I didn't think there was much difference in the meat between the two, though I did enjoy the sausage at TDB better.
I've also been to Tradicao in Houston, and while good, it can't hold Fogo's or TDB's jock.
