We had a retirement dinner at Fogo several years ago. You start out with a wonderful salad bar. (be sure to save room for the rest of the dinner) The servers are outstanding and keep bringing out choices of meat. We talked and ate for an extended period of time. The meat was terrific, but we all had our personal... More

Seventeen different cuts of meat, prepared perfectly. That's probably enough said, but it's not the end of the story. I attended my first Fogo experience recently with basic knowledge of this being a meat lover's paradise, but I was not prepared for the other fine qualities of this restaurant. The entire process, from seating to the explanation of the process... More

From the moment you walk into Fogo de Chao you instantly feel like a VIP customer. You have access to a full salad bar. Never has a salad bar looked so appetizing. Meat it brought to you at your table, but it is all you can eat. They offer a variety of cuts of steak as well as lamb and... More

There is a large cold buffet with salads and veggies, breads and cheeses. Then their is the meat. You pick your meat off scours that the guys are going table to table serving. Your choices are sausages, steak, prime rib, pork and some thing called the house steak, that was the best of all.

The selection of food at this establishment is quite remarkable, and the servers are famed for their good looks. There is a set price and they keep bringing out more and more meat (always Latin American specialties) until everyone is quite full. In addition to all the selections of meat, there is an extraordinary salad bar that is also all... More

I love this place! The salad bar is so good you could just order that and still be satisfied. I love the beef that comes out to your table but they have this bacon wrapped chicken that I can't get enough of. The price is a little steep but it's worth it.

We always debate as big eaters as to whether it is better to seek quantity or quality. This place does both with style, sophistication and originality. They have so many delicacies and delicious items, and the service is warm and friendly. Where were they in my youth, when I could have done so much more damage? Now, in the latter... More

We took our two children (10 & 12) here for lunch. The lunch atmosphere was upscale but very friendly for families. The kids LOVED the experience of using the red and green cards to try all sorts of new meats. The kids (ages 12 & under) eat free with a paying adult and lunch prices were much less than dinner...

This is an awesome experience and great place to dine. Not for anyone that wants peace and quiet but that's the fun of it! Our group of 4 had outstanding service in a packed restaurant. It did not feel crowed at all - just it was busy. Staff is great and worked very hard. I think we tried everything for... More
