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

To do churrascaria in Brasil at an American chain seemed a little counterintuitive, but the fact is they always do a fantastic job with the meal. Service is top notch. The quality of the meats is very good. They have the best looking salad bar that gets so underutilized because of the barrage of meats. (OK, maybe that was just... More

Compared to others churrascaria. Fogo de chao doesn't have lots of variety, but the meats served are delicious, the best in it class. The buffet could offer more options taking the fact of the high price charged. It is a place to go once in a while.

I use to go very often to Fogo de Chao during my business trips in Brasil. I really recommend this place for everyone who loves the meat and the churrasco. The "Fogo de Chao" in Brasilia, in particular, has something special since the food is even better than in other restaurants of the same chain. Service is excellent, the quality... More

What an experience, great welcome, stunning salad bar, tasty meat, chicken, lamb and sausages all served in a flamboyant way by guys who cook and serve different meats on massive skewers. The cocktails take your breath away. Your given a card, red on one side and green on the other. When you ready for more meat, turn green side up,... More

Dined here with a large group recently. The food is outstanding. The salad bar itself has an enormous variety. Then 10+ cuts of beef delivered directly to your table. All well seasons, and cooked rare, how it should be. They also served lamb when I as there. Not as good as Welsh, but I'm nitpicking here. The beef is the... More

Very good place for lunch in Brasilia. The service is good and there are at least 15 cuts of beef, as well as lamb and chicken hearts. The salad bar is amazing.
