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.

Superb !!!!!!

A place like Fogo De Chao can be misleading, because who never has been there might think that is all about quantity....but here is just quality. Great meats, great atmosphere, great service. I can only recommend. Yes.....not cheap, but worths the price.

Celebrated my birthday here with the family. This was our first visit and we found the staff to be very attentive. Whenever one of us left the table there was always someone from the staff standing by to scoot our chairs in upon our return. However, we did not find the food to be at the same level as the...

This is a typical Brazilian BBQ. There's so much meat! All you can eat! It's big and noisy. Lots of groups. But, the food is amazing.

This is an excellent restaurant. A bit pricey if you are not a big eater or someone who loves to graze. Service is superb. The wait staff is appropriately attentive. Save room for dessert. They are all excellent. This is a great restaurant for mid to large groups as it is easy to talk and the food is a source... More

With my team and needed to have a great night. Service was outstanding. Really can't emphasize this enough. The wine selection was really good. Had some wonderful Malbec's to go with the copious amounts of beef and meat. And of course, the meat was done to perfection. And onslaught of meat and it was simply fantastic. Highly recommend.

My family of 8 came for dinner while visiting our son in Chicago. He raved about Fogo de Chao so we added it to our to-do list. The food was pretty good, but way overpriced. We never saw a menu with prices, and there is no ala carte option. You get the $52 pp meal, plus extra for dessert. It's... More

We visited the restaurant as a company of nine people. Final check was 1.100$ which is far above the 45$ per person that it is indicated in the beginning. Service was slow and they didn't come for a second round but only when we asked them. (It is Argentinian restaurant were you can eat as much as you can with... More

This is a great concept - a Brazillian steak house. Servers with sizzling hot cuts of meat, and not the cheap stuff, coming to your table, and if your card is turned green, offering you a cut off the skewer. If you like that description, you're going to flip over Fogo de Chao. This place is heaven for people who... More

Small portions from the burned and overcooked meat. Not a distinguished spicing. Not mentioning that one beer is 8 dollars, the other is 20. Salad bar is great. Otherwise extremely overpriced.
