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.

So we are big fans of the chain of Brazilian food. We have been to Atlanta, Minneapolis, SLC all fantastic. Been to the Chicago one on LA Sale a few tmies. Probably won't go back. The place is getting run down. Meat was over cooked when you ask for medium. Service was so so. Very casual now with lots of... More

We visited Fogo De Chao after a birthday experience for our two daughters. Our youngest LOVES Brazilian Steak Houses. Because of that, we have been to many. Never one like this! We were nearly first to be seated after the location opened. It filled up very quickly. The food ? Fantastic! The atmosphere? Fantastic! The service? OMG!!!! The trick is,... More

I have visited the restaurant in Chicago for dinners and lunches, have not tried Rosemont yet. Covers both salad bar, cold meats as well as the cooked meats - it's all good and fresh. I have not found anything over heated, over cooked, oxidized or too soggy from sitting out too long. Service is nonstop, you want something, the servers... More

Delicious, delicious, delicious. The wait staff is attentive and polite. The bar staff were helpful and obliging in attempting whatever drinks we wanted (try the tropical or berry caipirinha!) The salad bar is delicious and plentiful, but the meat ... well, that's why you go there, isn't it? Delicious, mouth-watering, served however well-cooked or rare that you want it. The... More

This place was awesome. I love the idea of having a never ending service of meat brought to your table... and all of it was cooked perfectly. I couldn't resist my veggies, they were great and fresh. It was the best! Butter lettuce, mozzarella balls, crisp asparagus, prosciutto, manchego... it was fabulous. For the quality and amount of food, including... More

The service was good and the food tasted good however, I have been to other Brazilian steakhouses that offered more on their side bar and meats. It was very crowded and we were put into a corner with a large group which made it a bit uncomfortable.

A truly amazing experience! The food was very good and the service efficient. In this restaurant you can really enjoy a wide variety of meats, cooked to perfection and very tasty. Aslo the buffet of starters and the side dishes were good. An extensive selection of fine wines accompanied the dishes. The venue and atmosphere are great for large groups.

This was nice, it was a good experience and peaceful time. You need to know that it is going to be expensive and is very meat intensive. We will plan to go again for sure, but it won't be for awhile. Very kind service, and attentive staff.

First, you must understand that you come here to eat a lot of meat, a lot. It is also pricey, so make sure you come here in the mood to eat your money's worth. This is for sure not a first date kind of place, it gets busy, and loud, not a romantic kind of setting, don't expect to have... More
