Description: Fogo de ChaoR (fo-go dee shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, FogoR began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

This was our first trip to Fogo de Chao but will not be our last. It was wonderful. The salad bar was great with lots of selections. The cheese biscuits are the best I have ever had. The meat was so good, I am usually not a big meat eater, but this was awesome. The service was first class. I... More

We go a couple time a year to Fogo de Chao in Dallas and more often to others due to the high dollar of Fogo de Chao. I took my husband here to Austin for his Bday. The service was ok, except for the meat, they just stopped coming around though we had not eaten all that much. As I... More

This was our first experience with a churrascaria and it did not disappoint! Upscale decor and impeccable service from the servers and gauchos fittingly enhanced the flawlessly prepared buffet and grilled meats paired with fine wine. A heavenly experience not to be missed!!

I went with a large group to the restaurant but it easily accommodates several such large parties. Good host for eveing who explained the process - salad bar first then servers will bring various meat offerings and you just select what you want for as long as the meal goes on. Extensive salad bar so even the vegetarians among our... More

everyone I spoke to said that this place wasn't worth the money you'd spend. I beg to differ!! I loved the salad bar with fresh salmon, kale, and spinach. Also the servers kept the food coming so you never had to wait for food to find your plate. The caramelized bananas were to die for!! and I ate about 9... More

We reserved a private room for a birthday party with 21 people ranging in age from 14 to 84. Everyone had different preferences including one vegetarian. We started with drinks many of us ordering the house speciality Caipirinha which was very refreshing. Then the meat fest began. The pork tenderloin was so tender you could almost stop there, but no.... More

I could have also added "Cultural" to the title of this review, but that seemed a bit much. It is true though. Fogo De Chao is Brazilian steakhouse at its finest. The atmosphere is fantastic, the staff is attentive and professional, and the food is fresh and very high quality. Its all about meat though, so if you don't love... More

It was the first visit to the brazilian barbecue restaurant. I can't eat meat, so I ate only salad buffet. There were so many choices, not only vegetables but also salmon, cheese, hot dishes and so on. They were so delicious. I drunk some cocktails and brazilian sling was the most delicious. Staffs were very friendly, and one of them... More
