I am vegetarian, but my husband lives meat. Fogo de Chāo is a great alternative because they offer excellent meat and special price for those who do not eat meat. The caipirinha was a must.

If You like a beaf - this place is not cheap at all, but if You try - it's worth it. Every kind of beaf served is fresh and best of its kind. During busy days - don't forget to reserve a seat in advance! For those who are vegetarian and got there (by mistake;-) - don't worry. You will... More

While it is very expensive (423 reales for 3 people), the food is amazing and you can eat as much as you want- so come hungry! My favorite meat is "picanha". The staff is very friendly and majority speak some English. Fun atmosphere

Fogo de Chão Brasilia Went to a buffet at Fogo de Chao in Brasilia during the World Cup in June 2014. The restaurant was very close to the TV tower and the water fountain in the open plan park. The stadium is also a stone throw away. Make sure you have an almost empty stomach as you will be served... More

The churascaria experience par excellence, great meat and great caipirinha ! Totally generous and great service. If you come for the meat , don't be fooled by the huge salad bar.

this is the quintessential Brazilian meat dining experience. They claim it's the best restaurant of this type in the country. That would be difficult to judge. It is expensive. We were there during the World Cup and the restaurant was full of Colombians. They had World Cup games on large screens, and it was quite noisy. But very good.

Fogo de Chao has a name to defend as the famous Churrascaria (barbecue restaurant) of Brasil and US. Fogo de Chao in Brasilia is nice, but not compared to any of the large Churrascarias in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and other places. Including their own Fogo de Chao's in other places. I expected the buffet to be double in... More
