Eat Your Heart Out at Boi Na Braza in Irving, Texas

Story and photography by Kimberly Stephens
If Brazil is on your travel list, but you just don’t think you’re going to make it this year, fear
not: Boi Na Braza, a Brazilian Steakhouse just carved out a new location at a hot spot in the DFW Metroplex - The Toyota Music Factory.

This makes the second location in town, as they opened the first in 2000. The new Irving/Las Colinas location, only weeks old, gives you the whimsical feel of brazil with captivating music that will make your toes tap, plus keeps the Caipirinhas (the national cocktail of Brazil) flowing.



With an extensive salad bar of over 60+ items to choose from - ranging from an
assortment of vegetables, salads, to a wide cheese selection and even hot options, there is
definitely something to make picky eaters or even vegetarian diners happy.

And that’s just the first course...



Now lets get to the best part, shall we? Each table is served with Pao De Queijo, (cheese bread), polenta, and breaded bananas to accompany your main course.



Are you full yet? I hope not. There are also sauce options that you can choose to complement your meal. The Chimichurri sauce is always a delightful pairing for your meat of choice.

The main course portion of the meal consisted of a parade of 15 selections of your choice of beef, pork, lamb, or poultry. Ummmm, one of each please! That was my initial intention, but my full tummy said otherwise after the third and fourth gauchos stopped by our table. Side note: each gaucho that stopped by our table was so sweet. Especially being that I wanted to take pictures, each one made sure that I could get the best lighting possible and that what they brought over was presentable. Such a nice touch, and truly means a lot to a person whose camera always eats first. ;)



 I did get to try quite a few different meats before I bowed out gracefully that are definitely worth mentioning.

The Filet Com Bacon (Filet Mignon with Bacon) was succulent and perfectly cooked.
Anything wrapped in bacon, I’m in!

The Fraldinha (Bottom Sirloin) Is a thinly sliced piece of meat robust in flavor that I also thoroughly
enjoyed.

And of course, I have to talk about the signature Picanha, which is a special prime cut of top
sirloin, sliced thin as well, but full of flavor that melts in your mouth.


Boi Na Braza allows you to request the temperature of your selection of meat which I
was happy about and enjoyed each selection that I chose medium rare or medium well.



Boi Na Braza also has lunch options that you can indulge in during the week. You can opt for the salad bar only or live your best life and have it all! Just don’t go back to work and get caught sleeping. ;)

They also serve brunch on the weekend and I’ve heard that they have a parfait and hot fruit dish that is a must have. Thanks to our server Matt and all the wonderful gauchos that continued to fill our plates and were so patient as we took allllll the pictures.

Endless meat at Boi Na Braza, then music at the Toyota Music Factory? Sounds like a win-win to me.
