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.

First time to eat here...definitely not the last. Not your typical salad bar......could of filled up with just that. The servers were constantly coming around with their offerings of bacon wrapped filet, cheese crusted pork, garlic sirloin, bacon wrapped chicken, pineapple, just to name a few.

Really great value and so much food. Our group loved it. The cuts of meat were exquisite and very generous portions. We loved the lamb and the bacon wrapped filets. I loved their Malbec and my meal finished off perfectly with the flan. We would definitely return.

Visited Fogo de Chao during a recent business trip. I worked in Brazil for 3 years so my expectations were a high. Fogo de Chao did not disappoint. The Caipirinhas were perfect using a quality cachaça. The food was varied and cooked to perfection. The serving was Brazilian style and the service was impeccable. .....Brought me back to all the...

This was my first time dining at Fogo de Chao and we had the back room reserved for our sales meeting dinner. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, esp as I needed to store a box and my computer bag and they readily helped me put this in their coat closet. The salad bar/misc bar had a vast array...

Fogo was our go-to place for many family celebratory dinners out and it was always consistently amazing. We went this summer after a few months away and we were a bit disappointed this time around. They seem to be cheapening out on the little things and when you are paying near $50 a head, those little things matter. They always... More

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 suggest... 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.
