Thanks to a reader for pointing out that another Brazilian steakhouse is coming to Concord, this time to The Veranda. It’s called Texas de Brazil and their menu is here. Note the above photo is not necessarily the actual restaurant location.
Texas de Brazil began with a dream in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Enjoying the rancher’s life and feasting in the rodizio style native to the region, one of our partners had visions of bringing churrasco culture north to the United States. He wanted to share this unique way of dining where guests indulge in a parade of meats and extravagant seasonal salad area.
The destination for this restaurant was none other than cattle country…Texas. After all, the traditional steakhouse of Brazil blends perfectly with the service and class of the Lone Star State.
The restaurant and a video arcade Dave & Buster’s, which earlier this year we learned would be occupying the former Toys “R” Us spot at The Veranda in Concord is opening next month on September 2nd. Check out their Concord web page here for happy hours, weekday specials and local events. I look forward to checking this place out if I can snag a parking spot. 😬

Thanks to a reader for sending word that the pinball parlor The Flipper Room reopened down the block in Concord. Check out their pinball lineup here and leagues page here.

In addition to a merchandise and snack section they also feature an impressive selection of fun prints and pinball artwork. If you enjoy pinball or have kids definitely check this place out!
