'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Guests wishing to experience the restaurant's full menu can take advantage of Texas de Brazil's opening offer, which includes complimentary guest's choice dessert included in the regular dinner menu and price.

Menu options include Brazilian sausage, chicken breast wrapped in bacon, rack of lamb and the house specialty, picanha, all prepared in the traditional Brazilian method, over an open flame and carved tableside by the restaurant's authentically costumed Brazilian cowboys or “gauchos.”

The restaurant features a gourmet salad area containing more than 50 items, which include Brazilian black beans with pork, imported cheeses, marinated Portobello mushrooms, hearts of palm, tangy Tabbouleh and house-made lobster bisque.
