Back in the 1800s, the Longhorn were driven each winter to the Texas Gulf Coast to graze on the rich coastal salt grass. And when they headed for market, they followed the legendary Salt Grass Trail, known far and wide for creating the best beef in the Lone Star State. The first Saltgrass Steak House still stands along this historic trail. Now there are 15 locations in the Houston area to choose from.

If you've never had the Fogo de Chao experience, it goes like this: First, head to their salad and sides bar with over 30 items. When you're ready to really start eating, turn your card green side up. Then, the servers will bring 16 cuts of meats to your table for you to choose from. When you are done, flip the disc to the red side until you are ready for more offerings.

Tradicao Brazilian Steakhouse is similar to Fogo de Chao. Each guest gets a coaster with a red side and a green side. Once finished with your salad, start signaling the gauchos (meat servers) by flipping over the coaster to the green side.
