Never tried churrascaria?
Here are a few places to start.
There’s something so pure about connecting all elements of the earth to create the perfect plate of joy. Cooking with fire is like poetry. Brazilian-style churrascaria, or barbecue by the wheelbarrow, is traditionally enjoyed with numerous portions of meats — from pork sausages to beef steaks. Come with a carnivorous hunger for smoky and juicy meats because bigger is better in Brazil. But you need not book a flight to South America — these restaurants have generously brought all their flavors to our side of the Americas.

Enjoy endless amounts of Brazilian-seasoned meats with the generous hospitality that Texans are known for. texasdebrazil.com
