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.

Server (Tyler) was very pleasant and helpful. This was my first time eating at this type of restaurant. I couldn't believe how quickly the different types of steak appeared once I flipped my card from red to green...it's like the gentlemen came out of the woodwork! My 17-yr-old son and I were in "Steak Heaven!" For dessert, I had the... More

We were extremely satisfied with our visit at Fogo de Chao. We had dined with their competitor down the street but this was our first time at Fogo. No Comparison! Fogo's staff is amazing and the food is superior.

Excellent quality and preparation of sirloins, unusual tasty salad bar and very good wine list. However, service is frenetic and the atmosphere is loud with lots of diners. We enjoyed our dinner, but waitstaff were constantly at our table asking if we needed anything, even when our coasters were turned red. Very fast paced, and we tried toe plain we... More

This was my second visit to a FDChao restaurant. First visit was in Philadelphia, and it was disappointing. My son choose this for dinner for his birthday. Reluctantly I went along. What a enjoyable dinner we all had !!! Salad bar was fresh and many options. I could have made dinner out of that alone. The grilled skewered meat we... More

My GF took me here for my B-day and I was very impressed. The meats were of steakhouse quality and the side dishes were plentiful and tasty. The salad bar was fantastic and was kept clean and very well stocked. The price tends to be rather high and the service at this location seemed to be very face paced. I... More

I have to admit to my bias against this sort of place. I have been to several and am consistently underwhelmed. This chain proved to be no exception. The meats are ok, but you pay for the quantity, not the quality. The salad bar/ buffet was also OK but nothing exceptional or worth the price. On the plus side the... More

Nice atmosphere. The food was very high quality and tasty. But it is an expensive dinner. And I just find the concept uncomfortable. You have servers constantly coming to your table pushing 16 different cuts of meat on you. It never stops. The food was very tasty, but unless you like large quantities of meat on a non-stop basis, it... More

Although this is a high-priced dining experience, the atmosphere is loud and crowded. The decor is quite nice, but with many large tables (and whining children), it's difficult to choose this for an adult "special" occasion. The servers are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The salad bar is gorgeous and includes items not normally included on a salad bar, such... More
