Our first visit to a FDC - didn't realize they are a chain - oh well. It's all about mass consumption of meat here and they offer plenty of it. Everything was pretty good; no one cut that seemed particularly outstanding. The service is plentiful - my wife enjoyed the attention - I felt it close to overbearing at times... More

We came for dinner on a Saturday night on the recommendation of local friends. To be fair, the meat itself is authentically prepared and presented. We felt accosted by the staff however as they kept asking us if we wanted more drinks every two seconds - to the point where I couldn't finish one sentence before being twice interrupted by... More

It was a special date night. We anticipated for months. It was better than expected! Everything we tasted was absolutely delicious! The salad bar, the sides, the meats, even the drinks! Just wonderful. We will defiantly go again! We easily spent $200.. No regrets!!

I've been in this steakhouse in Brazil and had the opportunity to visit the unit located in Minneapolis. I can say that the meats are very similar with great seasoning. Very nice atmosphere and great service.

As long as you love steak and can appreciate a good salad bar this place is worth every penny! The experience alone is worth the visit, it's a very unique way to dine and lots of fun with friends or a significant other. Make sure to call ahead for reservations the wait can be quite lengthy some nights.

Really cool atmosphere. They walk around with big pieces of different kinds of meat and slice off pieces for you as you want them. There's beef (steak), turkey, ham, and I can't remember what else but it's good food. My one complaint is that I like my steak rare and what they serve is more like medium. So I haven't... More

I recently was able to go to Fogo de Chao for lunch, and although I was expecting the lunch price to be a little lower than it was, the food did not disappoint. Before going I was told that you could just eat at the salad bar because it is that good, so I made sure to get a few... More

This is a great restaurant for stylish fine dining. Dress up. You will love it. Vegetarians may not get much enjoyment. Please take my advice and do not bring children. It is very expense and there are no chicken nuggets and fries.

Love the large selection of beef & pork. Service was superb & we love the atmosphere. Take your time - enjoy the meat & don't gorge yourself all at once!!
