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.

Great for meat

Was strange not having a menu but I ate so much. The meat just kept coming & I couldn't keep up. Fortunately you get a green/red card to pause it - but kept turning it over again as I saw more meat that i fancied. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit

I have been sitting hear since 11:30. Thought they were suppose to be open. The sign on the door and on the website clearly says that they open on Sunday at 11:30. Misleading! Guess they shut down! Me and about 8 other people clearly did not get that memo 🙃

Never doubt - when I can - this restaurant is my favorite The endless salad bar is great and the "keep it coming" meat is the best of its kind. I took the lunch menu - same as dinner just $20 less

While there are many tiers of pricing at this restaurant something should be considered separate from the others when you were trying to enjoy a nice market table and some fresh seafood. I don't have a problem paying for what I consime but up chathing based on an alacart item put a sour taste in my mouth ...... Pun intended.

We ate at lunch because of appointments. Also, it's less expencive at lunch. Paul the manager can't be beat! He never fails to not only take care of us but EVERYBODY else! Try to go before 12:45pm as they are sometimes training the waitstaff and they aren't as well trained as the evening staff yet. The busier they get the... More

Any type of protein and an endless salad bar is a carnivore's dream. This all you can eat restaurant has friendly staff that come around with different cuts of meat to choose. Difficult to get your cuts rare or even medium rare because of the nature of the cooking style.

You will not be disappointed with anything at this location. It is all delicious and the servers are very professional. I have been to different Brazilian Steakhouses before and this is definitely one of the better ones. I will say that for whatever reason every place I go to will always give me at least one portion of meat that... More

If you love Lamb and a great filet mignon, this is the place! You better make a reservation or you may wait a long time. I had a 5:00 p.m. reservation and had a brief wait of 15 minutes. Service is great, meat selection great, pop is ridiculous at $3 a bottle and saladbar was ok. Allow extra time to... More

I know I know, if you are a really big big eater then it's probably the best place in town. But for the 100$ I dished out for a glass of wine and the buffet. That money towards one serving of really great food by good waiters would have made me happier. Still happy I went, an experience for sure.... More

We had wanted to come to Fogo last year, but could not get in due to no open spots. Made sure we had a reservation this time. We were not disappointed. Our server, Robert, was very good, prompt and answered every question we had. Even when he was not sure of the answer, he found out and was quick to... More
