This is easily one the best Brazilian BBQs i have ever eaten at. Service was great and the meat was even better. It was all cooked to perfection and very tender & moist. Has a good selection on the salad bar

Everything you would expect from a churrasqueria... Very good with absolutely excellent service. There are no possible complaints from this place from me.

Wine was awesome - the salad bar choices were ALL great -- hard to limit -- and the meat -- well there was no complaints there. Loved the fried polenta and cheese bread and the lamb chop

Although I LOVE Fogo de Chao, my husband and I didn't mean to come here. When in Brasil my husband and I always eat churrascaria so we set out for one down the street but it was already closed. Since we had been to this restaurant in the US we decided to have dinner here. Unlike the restaurants in the... More

This is perhaps the best Chirascuria I have been to, and I have been to many! The buffer of salads and vegetables sets this apart from many, as well as the high quality meat served. The restaurant is very large with great views of the water and is very crowded, but nice nevertheless. I loved it!

Fogo is now a chain, so exists in multiple cities.. however, felt that the meat in Rio was superior to the meat we've had at Fogo de Chao in Chicago. Amazing experience and great service... will definitely go back.

Ask to be seated near the windows at the back of... More

Born and raised in Rio, I was used to every Saturday go to a Rodizio with my father. The old style, guys running around with the meats and a lot of side dishes etc.. Well took my kids to experience the Fogo de Chao, since the last time we went to Porcao's. Service was outstanding despite the fact we have... More
