Description: Fogo de ChaoR (fo-go dee shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, FogoR began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

Visited the Chicago location with a business group of 6 - as expected based on other Fogo locations the salad bar, meats and wine offerings were superb. The delivery of lamb chops took about 40 minutes and required my asking about it 4 or 5 times while my guests ate. The only downside to the evening.

I took my girlfriend for a dinner and we ended having the most amazing night. The staff took care of us like we were the only couple in there. The salad bar has variety, I love tomatoes: they were fresh and so delicious. Fogo staff we be back soon. Keep the great work.
