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.

Food is amazing, the service from all the staff is incredible. Not over priced fast service. The restaurant managers would come and ask how are we doing, and our waitress Jacky W was awesome! We stayed quite a while and we never felt rushed, very attentive, and personable. Thanks for making great service part of our Chicago adventure.

My family and I visited Fogo de Choa recently. The food was really good, especially the salad bar. It is pricey, but it helped that my 6 yr old ate for free. The service was really good and the manager stopped by to check on us. A fun place to visit.

I been at Fogo de Chao many times. I normally take customers to this place. People love the variety on the salad bar. Servers constantly bring different Brazilian meats roasted to perfection loaded of juice and flavor. Convenient valet parking, don't worry about parking in downtown Chicago. Keep up the good work!

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Chicago. The place I wanted to try the most was Fogo de Chao. The service was amazing. The food was even better. My husband was pleased too. I prepared him for sticker shock of the price which for 2 of us for dinner including a shrimp cocktail was $140. I would suggest this... More

Great food, excellent service, "ambience". . ....there's no comparison. I was feeling a little low while visiting Chicago, earlier this week, in town for business. My sister suggested that we go out to eat, she wanted to try this Brazilian Steakhouse on LaSalle Blvd. Oh my! "Customer Service" and the food taste and presentation; exceeded all my expectations.

What can be better. Great service, great meat, and a great salad bar. I know its pricey but its worth the visit to experience it. Just dont fill up on the salad bar and try as many meat varieties as you can.

If you are hungry and crave meat, search no more You'll enjoy yourself in this place in which the way to be served is quite simple, you get a card, one side green colored, one side red colored, if the green side is up, you will be served, if the red card is up, you'll "take a break" so if... More

one of the best places to enjoy all types of meats in one meal, decent salad bar, go hungry or it does not justify the price.

The food, of course, is great, but the service here also is consistently excellent. The manager, Paul, does a fantastic job and always makes us feel welcome over the 8 years we've been going.
