Meat heaven, and the best salad bar you could ask for!

This truly is a meat eaters heaven! Non stop quality meat served to your plate whenever your card shows green!! The salad bar was incredible too, it even had a whole Parmesan round cheese to chisel at!! If I didn't want to 'meat out' I would have been happy with the salad bar!! But it was meat... read more

I'd been here many years ago (which is why I came back) and had a wonderful experience. Two weeks ago, I brought my sisters-in-law there, and was really upset by the service. Despite numerous email confirmations, the reservation was missing when we arrived. We waited 30 minutes to be seated, and it was absolutely packed (hence, the reservation!). We saw... More

We went here for a birthday dinner were looking forward to having a nice evening with good food, drinks, and conversation. The food and selection did not disappoint but the atmosphere was terrible. It was so loud in the restaurant that we couldn't hear the servers or much less each other sitting directly across from one another. It is a... More

This place has an overwhelming selection on the salad bar and not to mention the steak main course. You will definitely go away stuffed. We visited in January with some special customers who had never experienced this before and it was a fantastic business dinner. The servers and wait staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the food offerings and... More

Fogo de Chao is in the Minneapolis theater district, which makes it convenient and within walking distance of several theaters for a show either before or after dinner. In the typical style of most Brazilian-themed restaurants, they steer you to the abundant salad / food bar before you begin to take meat from the gauchos circling the restaurant. On top... More

If you're looking to be put into a meat coma, then this is the place. Brazilian steakhouse with endless skewers of many different delicious meats. There is a salad bar with fine veggies and fruits but be sure not to fill up on that. Simply flip your table coaster to "green" if you would like the staff to visit your... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants when I want meat. If you are not a carnivore then you would not be happy here. They do offer a salad option but that isn't a reason to come. It is large items like bacon, peppers and cheese along with premades such as chicken salad. All very tasty but distracts you from... More
