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.

First of all the service was impeccable, the waiters did not even let us pull our own chair to seat. Amazing. The venue was outstanding, both atmosphere and organization of the tables. Then the food was off the chart, starting from a salad bar that is almost worth the price just by itself. Beyond that, the meat was top notch.... More

You will never leave hungry. I am full for days. The highlight of the experience was the service. Great wait staff and will definitely take care of you and feed you a lot! Garlic beef was my favorite and great salad bar.

Great Salad Bar, and then the revolving skewers of meat cooked to your liking. The parmesan crusted pork is divine. Pricey, but a much better deal at lunch. Not as crowded as it used to be.

Ive been to a few Brazilian Steakhouses before, while the food at most of them is good and bountiful, I was very pleased with Fogo de Chao. The salad bar was very clean and well attended, the atomosphere and ambience was better than some of the other Brazilian places in Chicago. The team serving effort was something that I had... More

Great salad bar, many very fresh selections. All of the meats were excellent and were perfectly prepared. Very tasty desserts as well. Nice wine list - several of my favorites. I did miss the grilled pineapple that one of the other chains have though.

This was our first trip to the Fogo's in Chicago. We have been to other Fogo De Chao's so knew what to expect. We arrived a bit early for our reservations on Saturday evening of Labor Day weekend, and were pleasantly surprised to be seated right away. The atmosphere was very nice, but perhaps a little close quarters with other... More

If you love meat then this place is a must, second time I have been here this year. You start your pallet with a buffet salad bar....then the meat feast begins! There are 16 different meats, including chicken, pork, lamb, various beef cuts and cutlets, you control your meat input by usung the traffic light RED and GREEN card. They... More
