>>Texas de Brazil

They said that TX is doing the best out all the states where they have franchises.<<

Love the graphics and music on that site - steaks look good! I didn't see a price tho, it must be a one charge for everything, kids being half price.

I believe you about the franchises in Dallas - I have never seen so much shopping and eating places. It's almost overkill - lol.

Yeah, La Hacienda Ranch has very good beef ... and mexican food too IMO.
If I recall, you can order a steak (American style) which comes with baked potato or Mexican style that come with enchilada. Best of both worlds. There is one down on Preston road in Dallas too besides the one in Frisco. I think they also have another location further west too...and maybe others for all I know.

Yeah, we went to the one in Frisco and I knew they had good food but I was really suprised at how good the steak was, better than some steak houses I have been to

They said they thought about CA, but the market data they collected seem to lead them to believe TX was a better fit long term. I've had this style food in Brazil (when my boss was paying :-) but have not visited one here....I think your looking at at least $30 a head.

You mean "massage parlor" . There were several and then the one on Main St in The Colony that was purple that always had the limo out front. Loverly.

The Brazillian steak places are AWESOME!!!!!! We have had two for about 7 years now: Texas de Brazil and Fogo da Cho. YUMMY!!! Both have a location in Addison. We have another new one in Firewheel Town Center in Garland that is doing really well. We LOVE the place. Their salad bar is not as big as Fogo da Cho but I'm not there for that stuff, bring me the MEAT!!! They have a killer pineapple they do that is AWESOME!!! You could make a meal out of it.

La Hacienda also has a location right on the Carrollton/Lewisville border on 35/Stemmons. Before they opened up in Frisco there were two other joints to eat at back when the first wave started building up there. Before that not much, I think a DQ.

See: Mariano's Restaurants

Mariano is a Wildcat and so is his wife - he invented the frozen margarita at his original Greenville Ave. restaurant.

Sadly I will always think of Jury Duty in Ft. Worth when I eat at Texas De Brazil!! I was picked to be on the jury ...was down there for 4 DAYS!!! Last day hubby met me down there and we had dinner there (I had to keep walking by it to go to the courthouse...the outside intrigued me).......YUUUUUM!! Don't remember the prices but it was worth it whatever it was!!
