Texas de Brazil Churrascaria is a popular restaurant famous for its delicacies, such as Angus Beef Steak, Brazilian Sausage, and Roasted Australian Cold Water Lobster Tail Served with Drawn Butter. The meat here is cooked over an open flame, and the waiters carry the roasted items straight to your table on skewers, before carving out the slices. Generous portions and a skilled, efficient staff add to the appeal of the place.
Tortilla chips and salsa start every meal. The most popular appetizer is Mexican chicken wings, coated in a dry, spicy sauce and served with blue cheese dressing. Entrees include quesadillas, tortillas, which can be filled with spinach, mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes or a variety of other toppings; tacos and chile rellenos (peppers stuffed with meat and rice). A full service bar offers margaritas and Mexican beers. The walls are painted to look like clay with Mexican and desert designs. The tables are wooden and a little worn adding to the traditional feeling. The atmosphere is casual and fun.
Cafe Ole is one of the best places in Memphis to eat outside. Located in the Cooper-Young Historic District, an area of restored houses and antique shops, it is perfect for a leisurely afternoon or a casual dinner with friends. The salsa served with chips is outstanding. Other specialties include the vegetarian enchiladas and the black beans and rice. Standard Mexican combination plates are also popular, and the margaritas pack a potent punch. Inside, the decor is a bit rough-and-tumble, with a few colorful Mexican objects scattered about.
