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.

This place charged my credit card extra and when I called the restaurant they said they would send me a gift card instead of crediting back my card. Well two months later, the gift card still has not come. Pay cash if you're going to this restaurant.

It's not easy to write recommendation for this place. Not because it's bad, simply because it's too good! In simple words, from customer service to food, everything's just perfect. Place is very friendly to gluten free people, almost everything's allowed (apart from 1 type of meat and soup). Every salad, every meat, everything's delicious. You can choose out of many... More

Eating best cut meats with reasonable price at well decorated restaurant. Salad bar is also great, friendly and helpful staff. You will become fan of Brazilian steakhouses after Fogo de Chao.

Its always a great meal, the salad bar is always filled with fresh items and the service is great. It hasn't been an occasion that I've been there and the manager on duty did not stop to see if everything was ok. The fact that management and staff are concerned is wonderful!

Dinning by yourself can be a bit of a bore, but at Fogo de Chao that's not a problem. Staying close by I could smell the aromas for a couple days until I couldn't resist it any longer... very glad I did! The salad bar was the freshest and most delicious I have tasted for a long time and of... More

A place for meat lovers. Low carbs and high protein. Indulge in the large variety of items on the salad bar. One of my favorite way to cook meet. The variety and the taste is great. Open for lunch, when the price is lower (best value). However, the facility screams for some TLC and the service is starting to slip.... More

First trip to a Fogo de Chao. I went in expecting a lot, and they did not disappoint. It's a little on the pricey side ($52 a person) but I thought it was worth it. The salad bar is well stocked with cold cuts and full chunks of cheese, so it's more than just salad. The servers bring around 14... More

We went here late one evening. Like all of these restaurants around the USA, you need to book a reservation pretty early to get in that evening. It was packed, as they all are. I have lots of experience from visiting Brazil regularly. The service was great, salad bar amazing as it should be. The meat selection was a little... More

When it comes to style and service this place tops them all, in my opinion! We love the little soft rolls and the sides, which include polenta and fried bananas. There is a drink which its name I cannot remember, filled with limes....it's delicious! The meat is excellent, beautifully prepared, and they serve it to you however you want it,... More
