Meat Coma!!!

Oh my amazing! I have never been to this type of restaurant before and it was an amazing adventure! All the meats were so good! My husband and I consider ourselves foodies so when we stayed in the cities we were super excited to be able to eat here. All the meat was good. When I go back though I... read more

Took family to this location on Tuesday, July 21st. For five, our bill was in excess of $300-- not cheap! The service was quite good, the de or was nice... But for whatever their reason; ALL of the meat was exceedingly salty. I can't believe this is their standard recipe, because it really killed the overall meat. It certainly upped... More

The food was great and the service was definitely the highlight of the experience for me on this day. EVERY single staff member was attentive and treated us like a 5 star guest. This made for a memorable birthday lunch. I've eaten at a couple of other brand name churrascaria's both in the USA and in Brasil. This one, while... More

The food at Fogo is always excellent. You need to be a meat eater though to really enjoy this place, as it is a Brazilian steakhouse, as with most southern South American cuisine, its very meat heavy. Its very expensive, but it is all you can eat, so I recommend not eating really at all during the day so you... More

Just ate lunch here with my family and it was fantastic. If you like a variety of fire-grilled meats brought to your table and hand carved for your dining pleasure, then this is the place for you. While the salad bar looks enticing, don't be fooled into taking up any stomach space with salads - get a plate and flip... More

As always, great service and food. We made reservation a month or so ahead, got there during a busy time of the week. Our party of 8 walked right in. Forgo de Chao has always had suburb service, friendly and always ,asking sure you have everything you need. Thank you

We went during restaurant week. Big mistake. They cut way back on the variety of meats. What we had was very good but I missed some of the really good cuts. The problem is the feeling that you have to eat fast. I don't like that.

Fogo de chao is one of my favorites restaurants for rodizio ever. I mean they have many locations around US, but the Minneapolis restaurant is great. The local is big, so you find a restaurant full of alternatives, different kind of salads, sides and a great selection of spirits and wines. The service is great, the food amazing. If you... More

I've only been to Fogo during Restaurant Week. I find it's a good time to meet up with friends and enjoy the show! The salad bar is so good, along with all the different choices of meats! It's fun and delicious to try them all (in small portions for me!) The guys love coming here! I have to say the... More

All of the meat was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I would go for the salad bar alone. You can't go wrong with the variety of meat they offer. I was not impressed with any of the mixed drinks.
