When the news broke just this week, people here in the Treasure Valley had very polarizing opinions. Who would have thought that there we so many opinions on Texas de Brazil?

On one hand, it seemed that many people were sad to not be able to visit--for their second time, their first time, or to use a coupon that apparently hundreds of people in town had.  On the other hand, folks totally roasted the place. Many people said the food was nothing special, that it all tasted the same, and a popular complaint was just how expensive it was.

Now that Texas de Brazil is just one big empty space in the heart of our beloved Village at Meridian--let's take a look at what people are demanding fills the space!
