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.

Flavor Overload !

To begin, I have been to many, many Fogo's throughout the U.S. I have been enjoying their fare for well over ten years. This chain is very consistent with their quality and ambiance. They are at the top of their game with this type of experience and are head and shoulders above Texas de Brazil and... read more

If you have never been to this restaurant you must try it when in Chicago! The food is unique and wonderful as is the way it is presented! It is great fun! There is no other place like it! And don't be mad when you leave and discover you ate too much!

Nice concept, it's all you can eat for around USD 50. Meat is the main attraction here, and the quality of it is excellent. Also no complaints about the salad bar that is included in the fixed price, which has a very wide choice of really fresh products. Service is fast, relaxed and friendly. Just be aware of the price...

There have been a lot of places popping up trying to copy the fornula but fogo is and will always be the best. You never have to wait on certain items as your servers will go out of the way to bring something to your table as soon as you ask. Good drinks and phenomenal service from the wait staff... More

I went with a small group of friends. The staff was friendly and very quick to keep serving us. They always asked if we'd like to try any meat they had. The side dishes were tasty and the desserts were delicious !

We came here wanting Brazilian, but we ended up here for an hour eating everything. It is an amazingly quick service, friendly. They food was moist. Slightly salty or bland but it depends on your taste. I would come here again no problem. A special occasion dinner no problem.

One of the best places to go in Chicago, a stop everyone must go to at least once. This place has a much different style than most restaurants. First, their is a outstanding salad bar, with many great Brazilian and South American vegetables, cheeses and other appetizers, all part of the meal. After that delicious preview, you are given a...

The salad bar alone is better quality than most restaurant food. The meat and Brazilian style steak house meal is unique and amazing too. Price makes it hard to enjoy except for the most precious occasions. Still the place is packed !

I was hesitant to try Fogo because it was expensive but my husband had his heart set on it. It was so worth the cost! The fresh bar was delicious, lots of veggies, fresh fruits and cold sides along with black beans and rice. But the meat service is fantastic. We never waited more than half a minute after turning...
