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.

Was recommended this by people in the uk and the reviews on here. Started off well and with polite staff who told us all about the fogo experience. We went and got some food and the staff were rushing around us pulling out our seats every time we moved etc, a bit much but thats how they do it. The... More

If you like meat, this is the place for you! Amazing sangria and the most delicious meat selection imaginable! We went for my boyfriend's birthday and were in a group of amount 10. Service was good and overall a great spot for large groups since you aren't waiting on a bunch of individual entrees to be delivered. It's a must... More

Who complains about too much food? They don't come to your table and force feed you. If you're full, flip over the little red circle and the waiters will stop offering you food. This place is fabulous. We go here for special occasions. You really feel like you're in the city. The traffic is a little difficult, but we've never... More

Congratulations Fogo de Chao....you all are top notch! My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Fogo for lunch during Spring Break with our children. We walked in in jeans and sweatshirts and never felt uncomfortable dining. We were welcomed with a smile and reassurance that dress did not matter. Upon seating, we were all well attended to,...

I had been to one of these types of restaurants several years ago in Salt Lake City, and I knew my husband would find it fun and enjoyable. The price at this restaurant in Chicago was more than twice the price I paid in Salt Lake, but then, it WAS several years ago. The atmosphere is fun, very busy and... More

We went early for lunch on a Tuesday. We were one of the first tables. It was our first time at this kind of restaurant and we really did not know what to expect. We skipped breakfast that day and went for lunch because of the price. It was around $32.50 for lunch and as far as I could tell,... More

Any place that serves meat on a weapon is amazing, and the food they bring is so delicious it's unbelievable. I'd recommend avoiding the salad bar, because the meat is worth waiting for.

This place is huge, but the service and attentiveness was spot on. The quality and variety of the salads was excellent, but the main deal was the meats and the quality was exceptional. The waiters were very good at finding you the right cut of meat and served it as rare or not as requested. One of the best Churrascos... More

My wife and I went there for our 14th wedding anniversary lunch. Absolutely the best lunch ever. We ate until we were ready to burst. As we left a manager asked how it was and my wife mentioned why we were there. He asked us to sit back down for a desert but we were to full, then he asked... More
