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.

Excellence in everything

A place for special meals. Fogo de Chao is not cheap, but it is excellent. The service was received was outstanding. I also like that a manager stopped by the table at one point to see how everything was. That's always a sign to me that they care. The meats were delicious and they just kept coming... read more

If you like meat this is the spot, just keep that card free side up and your plate ready for tasty meats. The salad bar here is great, it has some good meats to start with and of course lots of salad and sides. Don't fill up on greens though because you will want all that space for the meats... More

This is my third year going to this restaurant for restaurant week and about the 15th time I have been to this chain throughout the US. All 14 visits were exemplary in every way, this visit last night not so much, I took 5 staff for dinner for the extended restaurant week which Fogo is doing on Sundays through March... More

The idea of having a coin giving the staff a notification that you want more food is great and efficient. You don't need to raise your hand or ask for much of anything, it will just come to you. How can you beat all you can eat with the best cuts of beef you can imagine? You can't. I love... More

We stop by one of these restaurants every time we are in a town that has one. We are never let down! The service was great as well as the wonderful meats that came around. It is a bit pricey so expect to spend about $50 per person.

We have been to Fogo numerous times and have always come away extremely impressed. This time, there were some very obvious flaws. I'll caveat that comment with the fact that this was the last day of Denver Restaurant Week. They were absolutely packed. However, they knew that going into the evening, so the flaws were really not OK for an... More

The food was better than the last time we went (11/14) so we were glad. It was 5280 (denver rest wk) so the meats turned quick/stayed moist & the salad bar was fresh. If you are a 1st timer this Brazilian Rest. is one of the prettier ones around. Here is where Fogo could earn 5*'s instead of 4 AGAIN.... More

Great place to eat its pretty much like its other Brazilian Counter parts except I personally think Fogo seasons there meats better and is just tastier than texas de brazil or the dated Rodizio. Kind of Pricey, However I hope the Meat quality may be better.
