Houston's best Baby Beef "Top Sirloin". I know it's a hard to make that kind of statement. Don't take my word for it. Ask for the Baby Beef "Top sirloin" and hopefully you will agree with me that it is delicious. It's tender, juicy and best of all is grilled on a skewer. They don't have only Top sirloin, they actually claim on their website that they serve 14 cuts of meat. I don't know, I can't count very well after a couple of glasses of wine and a Caipirinha. I remember my second time better than the first and I think I saw at least 8 to 10 different cuts but by that time I was getting full and I turned my coaster to red so that I would leave some. Worthy to mention is the grilled shrimp, grilled salmon, for desserts I like the Papaya Cream( I ask for less cream and more papaya), Creme Brulee and the Flan.
Houston's best brazilian steakhouse. Awsome food and awsome service.
I had about 20 different types of delicious on my plate by 1030 and there was no threat of it slowing down. The food was perfectly cooked (all of it) and there was an endless supply!
I just couldn't imagine that there would ever be a vegeterian at one of these places, but it just goes to show that even I can be surprised at times still!

Houston's Most Affordable Brazilian Steakhouse. Food was excellent, service was good and price was affordable. I walked into Tradicao Brazilian Steakhouse last night by chance. I stayed next door at La Quinta Inn and I saw the "open" sign. I initially thought it was a Mexican restaurant because the outside is painted Orange,Green and Yellow. I walked in into a nice restaurant. They explained me it was a Brazilian Steakhouse and for a flat price I could eat all the steak and salad I wanted. The only other option in that area was trying the African Tavern ( I will do it another day) next door or to eat at Tradicao. I opted for plan one and I am very glad I did. I basically ate what they recommended because there were too many cuts to eat them all. I started with the salad, loved the "Giant Aspargus" ( I never seen them in a store that big") they seemed like they were on steroids, I also enjoyed the black beans with white rice, . Ordered a caipirinha ( they will tell you what it is), a glass of of House Wine, ate lots of cuts, specially liked the Top Sirloin, the Lamb, Baby back ribs, etc. Had the house Flan for dessert and I left feeling full and ready to go to sleep.
Expect Great Service and really good food.
Very Good Food!
Not your 5 star establishment, but you are not paying those prices either. Lunch is best! They offer a good selection of cuts and they will prepare based on your requests. Relax, Enjoy and Be Happy!
I will be back. Excellent steaks.
Tradicao gets 5 stars from me. A little hard to find but now I know how to get there. It's located at the old Pappas Grill on Hwy 59 between West Bellfort and West Airport. Good wine list, caipirinhas, cheese bread, etc. Menu is more competitive during lunch but I can't complain because I like to save money . I loved the Picanha steak cut, Baby back ribs, etc. I was sitting in a corner but it didn't seem to matter, the servers kept coming until I said "Stop, I am going to explode!!". Will go back...

This justo be good, run down restaurant. I visit the restaurant last Valentine’s day after more than a year. My new experience was extremely disappointing. To begin with, the welcome make me feel like coming in to a taqueria, very informal and lousy. After they sat us down, they only put on the table mash potatoes and nothing else. When they begin to serve the food, the meats they were bringing were excellent but I was waiting for the filet and the lamb chops that never arrived. After a while, I asked if they don't serve those meats anymore and they wanted $6 more for filet and another $6 for lamb chops. If this is the case, I can go to many other Brazilian restaurants with a better service, location and all the meats for the same price. They charge me $30 a piece and I left with a bad taste in my mouth.
We have heard a similar complain from other dinners either by e-mail, phone call or sometimes a bad review. I am glad you rate our meat as "Excellent". You are not alone. We listened to our customers and we changed the "Dinner Menu" to include Filet and Lamb Chops. We also now bring to the table Rice, Mashed Potatoes, Fried Banana and at the table's request Black Beans and Farofa( at no extra cost). We hope to see you back soon. Sorry again for the inconvenience.
Classy and quaint experience.
So I was looking for a nice steakhouse to take my fiancé out to eat and was recommended by a friend to try the new Tradicao in Clear Lake. The service was great from the start. I tried some of the lemonade and browsed through a detailed list of wines. I went along with an Argentinian bottle of wine, which the both of us loved. We were already enjoying ourselves and things got even better when we started with the main part of the meal, the meats. My favorite was the "picania" which was the house special, but the filet and lamb chop were delicious as well. Once we finished with everything we ordered a papaya cream (sort of like a custard i guess) and a creme brulee. all i have to say that the desserts had to top the entire course.
For prices that flat out beat other local "upscale" restaurants, Tradicao is #1. I have ever since been using it as a place to take my fiancé out to eat.
Impeccable And Flawless.
We recently tried the new Tradicao location out in Clear Lake, on Bay Area Blvd. The service, attention to every little detail, and responsiveness of the waiters and gaucho servers, were all excellent. They have a very versatile wine selection, a very well decorated and romantic atmosphere, and very well-versed waiterswaitresses. The manager came around a couple of times to make sure we were pleased with our experience. I tried the bacon-wrapped filet mignon, garlic-herbed shrimp, and lamb chops. They were all mouth-watering delicious and perfect. My wife and kids tried the cheese breads, sirloin, house special-cut ribeye, and a host of other delicacies, and they were all excellent. The Valet parking attentdants were also very polished, professional and polite. They have also remodeled the entrance with a walkover bridge and beautiful fish ponds on both sides of the front dooorways. We really could not have enjoyed the experience any more than we did. Excellent in my book; and I AM a picky eater!
PS: Try the Merryvale Starmont Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon red wine from Napa Valley; about $52 per bottle, and worth every penny.
UPDATE: 2/18.2011: We have now eaten here twice, and the 2nd time was just as good or better than the first time. Versatile wine list, excellent service, 14 kinds of meat, lamb chops, grilled shrimp, etc This location on Bay Area Blvd in Clear Lake is excellent!
