We are an authentic Churrascaria (Brazilian Steakhouse) from Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil which features superior service, unrivaled cuisine and a unique dining experience.You will be pampered by our authentic Gaucho chefs who come to your tableside to carve a variety of succulent meats right off their skewers. Our featured meats have been slow-roasted over an open flame and lightly seasoned to preserve the unique taste of each tender cut.Adding to our unique dining experience, you will be treated to a sumptuous, gourmet salad and vegetable bar featuring over 30 items including imported cheeses, cured meats, fresh vegetables and more. We complement your meal with traditional Brazilian side dishes such as caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, seasoned mashed potatoes and our world-famous cheese bread (pao de queijo).No meal is complete without trying a refreshing caipirinha, something from our award-winning wine list or one of our decadent desserts.

An adventure in meat

I love coming here! It has become a staple for birthday dinners. For those who have never been here before be warned it is a lot of food, or more specifically a lot of meat. If youre not a fan of red meat in various forms, or meat in general, this is not a restaurant for you. I would... read more

We went to Fogo de Chao for Valentine's Day. My husband lives in Denver, I flew out for a long weekend and made reservations last minute. Our seating time was 4 pm which I was worried was too early but it worked out quite nicely and I would recommend an earlier seating for this type of all you can eat... More

Took a group of ten here for the meat. But, the wine menu was international and exceptional, and we enjoyed a special malbec blend from Argentina. We had the grilled shrimp and mango sauce appertizer, which gained a bunch of fans. The salad bar was outstanding, with many salads, fresh veggies, and fruits. I could have made a meal -... More

We ate at Fogo de Chao in late March with friends. The food was of a high standard, but personally we don't like buffets and were dining here for a friends birthday so we went along with it. Even so the quality and range of food was very good. I wouldn't recommend eating here, however, if you were vegetarian as... More

I've been here several times by now and every time it has never failed to impress me. The service is wonderful. We love their salad bar, but try not to get too full on salad because Fogo de Chao is all about the meat. Before you get to the meat, however, you must try the Brazilian cheese rolls--they're great.

My wife and I visited Fogo de Chao on out trip to Denver and we loved the food. My wife is from Brazil and the picana at Fogo was cooked the same as in Brazil, so delicious. The ambience was great and the employees were very nice.

We joined our son and daughter-in-law for a lo-carb and high fat group dinner at this expensive restaurant that specializes in meat. I must say that they had a very good salad bar with enough to fill me up so that by the time the waiters came around with endless swords of various meats I was not even that hungry.... More

There was a paleo convention in town with a lot of authors and notables. They were having an open meeting at this restaurant.

For normal people, this is an expensive restaurant but if you want relatively good steak, it is a good price at lunch time. We have gone to lunch and dinner. We actually prefer the selections that are on the lunch buffet better but it might be done differently because we went during restaurant week and paid $30 instead of $50.... More
