"This is a very compact restaurant attached to a small Best Western hotel. Nothing too inventive on the menu -- mostly standard pasta dishes -- but the offerings are well-prepared and delicious. Portion sizes are just right. Tables are small and close together, and at peak lunch hour you have to strain to hear your dining companion. Service is friendly and non-intrusive. All around, a good experience."

Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas. <br />Treat yourself to our 50-60 item gourmet salad area including appetizers, fresh vegetables, soups and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As your dining experience continues, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink or steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance that is Texas de Brazil.

"The meats are the star, but the salad bar shines in its supporting role in the Texas de Brazil show. The sprawling, two-story, family-friendly space packed a decent crowd at 5:30 on a Sunday. Standout salad-bar offerings included pineapple carpaccio, seared tuna, sauteed mushrooms, salami and prosciutto, grilled gorgonzola, and shrimp. Some tables are very far from the salad bar, but close to the floor-to-ceiling window. As expected, the meats are fantastic, and most are served medium or medium-rare. It's not a cheap meal, but we'd much rather have this in the neighborhood than California Pizza Kitchen (the former tenant of the space)."

A modern steakhouse with seafood specialities, headlining an impressive selection of USDA prime black Angus beef steaks, all dry-aged-on-site for 30 - 35 days. <br />Both upstairs and downstairs feature a main dining room and bar area; downstairs stars 4 private party rooms which are all available for customized parties and special events. All dining rooms provide an intimate, romantic ambiance. The combination of harmonious beige ceilings, custom made vintage chandeliers, reclaimed barn wood and snake-skin walls, with classic oak wood floors creates a wonderful art-deco inspired setting.

"It's in an odd location, so I'm not sure how long it will be around... but we had a terrific experience here. Perfect steaks, hearty side dishes, generous portions, desserts served with homemade schlag, and friendly service. It's a smallish space with minimal decor, but the pleather dining chairs are comfortable and there's a good amount of elbow room."
