  •   One of the coolest restaurants to visit in Irving for a Brazilian Churrascaria experience at a reasonable price (about $25 including tax on Saturday afternoon). The servers are very pleasant, courteous and attentive.
    It helps that they don't close the restaurant between lunch and dinner.

  •   This Brazilian steakhouse is so much better than the other popular chain restaurants. The meat is bursting with great flavor and their grilled pineapple is delicious!

  •   Delish!!! As other reviews say, this place isn't too fancy.  It is in  in an older strip mall.  Don't let that stop you, it's super tasty! My favorite was the special meat.  Pineapple was awesome!!! FYI our kids (3,8,10) ate for only $11 each! 3 year old was free

    Endless juicy meat!

    Funds low after dining at Fogo de Chao? A more affordable alternative, Vila Brazil offers juicy cuts of meats with an excellent self-serve side and salad bar without the elaborate service or decor. I went to town on their black beans with pork, mixing it with their veggie rice and scrumptious sautéed mushrooms. So many hot yummy options there, take advantage! Did I mention they also have unlimited pan de queso?

    Of their rotating meats, I love their picaña - so juicy and perfectly seasoned. Not a fan of their pork or ribs, but I was surprised by how incredible their cinnamon-coated grilled pineapple was - AMAZINGLY mouthwatering. Clearly I'm on the pineapple train cause their pineapple juice was also fresh, made in house, and soooooo goood.

    In terms of atmosphere, the location is cramped, trading walking room to maximize seating. As a hungry customer constantly stopping by the salad bar, I had a hard time avoiding collisions with servers, especially in such a dark room. Servers are willing to rearrange tables seating 2-4 to accommodate larger parties. Make a reservation to avoid waiting. I suggest coming ready to eat your weight, especially for brunch - a steal for $16 (weekday lunch)/$26 (weekend) per person!

  •   We've been coming here off and on for over 10 years. We've moved a little distance away so it's not as nearby as some of the other Brazilian steakhouses now. But after eating at another churrascaria recently and having a bad experience, I had to go back to this one, namely to get the bad taste out of my mouth from the previous restaurant. Vila Brazil delivered the goods! We went on a Friday night and the food was fantastic! It was as delicious as I remembered it to be. There were pastels and fried polenta on the salad buffet as well as real Feijoada with farofa! You don't have to like farofa but if you want the genuine Brazilian experience, then real Feijoada with farofa are must-haves. Love their fried cauliflower - and I normally dislike cauliflower as a vegetable! Even the dessert flan is awesome! Paired with a cup of Brazilian café and it is heaven!
    What about the meat? Medium rare, well seasoned, slightly crispy fat edges with meat juices dripping with flavor! The chicken legs were juicy, tender but still cooked all the way through! Authentic Brazilian sausage - tasty and tender! The grilled pineapple was sweet with just the right amount of tartness and cinnamon.
    Another bonus? The price! $26 for dinner, $23 if you check-in with Yelp!
    Granted, it may not have the ambiance like some of the other Brazilian restaurants and their salad bar is not as extensive but they know how to cook! So if you are looking for true Brazilian fare with a true Brazilian feel, this is the place! Great place to also watch a Brazilian soccer game too! To Robert (owner) and the staff at Vila, Great job! Keep putting out delicious Brazilian food! Technically 4.5 stars because ambiance is not there compared to the other fine dining Brazilian Steakhouses in Dallas, but so what? In my world, taste is king and you deliver the goods!
