Marathon, not sprint

Pace yourself and try a small amount of everything. You can also get by on just the salad bar! To really enjoy this experience, plan on being there 2 hours.

I took my ol lady here for her birthday. It was her first time at the restaurant. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. All of the cuts of meat were cooked very well and seasoned perfectly. The appetizers that they served were just as good. I ordered a cheesecake and a chocolate cake for dessert. I did not expect them to... More

If you love meat this is the place to go. It's servers bring you many different meats to chose from. I liked the garlic fillet the best and the sausage is by far the best. The salad bar and cheeses are wonderful and could even be a meal itself. Be sure to save room for all the many meats tho.... More

We wanted to go here and wandered in on a Wednesday. This is a fixed price night with a wonderful salad bar and all you can meats. Great experience! You are given a coaster with green and red sides. After the salad, turn up the green side and servers come by with skewers of meats which you can accept or... More

Best Meat in the city! A bit pricey unless you're going to eat a lot. The salad bar is magnificent. I wish I could order the unlimited salad bar, with just one plate of meat!

I was very excited to try Fogo de Chao so I made reservations for my husbands birthday. For one thing it is very expensive. Wine starts at $9.00 a glass for house wine. The food was okay, not the best. I think money would be better spent at a nice steakhouse . So much meat seemed like overkill. Pardon the... More

I think the meat they serve at Fogo is awesome...I'll give them that. It is a bit spendy, but if you are in to numerous meat selections that are brought to your table, then this is the place.

I had the ultimate disappointing evening at Fogo last night in MN and was so disappointed I felt you deserve to have this shared - I've visited Fogo in Chicago, Las Vegas, Dallas and here in Minneapolis many times with clients and have taken team members and my wife to the various restaurants. I believe last night was the last... More
