This restaurant is located in downtown Minneapolis. Great decor and vibe to the dining room. Went for lunch which worked out to almost $40 but we'll worth it. Salad bar would suffice most appetites with a great selection of greens as well as soup, deli meats, smoked salmon and much more. Don't overindulge because next comes the meat. Brazilian cowboy...

They have one of the best stakes that I've ever had and have a large variety for any picky stake eater. The sides and salads and fun and interesting. It's all you can eat restaurant style so no one will leave hungry.

I generally try to avoid chains, and yes, Fogo is a chain. (Not to the likes of Applebees or anything but a chain none the less.) That being said, you wont get that vibe at all at Fogo. It is a very good, very high end restaurant, and they do it without feeling pretentious or snooty. I have been there... More

Fogo de Chao is a fun place to enjoy a unique meal. The Brazilian Steakhouse dining experience is different than your normal meal. They have a great salad bar with several distinctive items and some great salads. After the salad you will find servers walking around with meat on a stick and they will bring the freshly cooked selection to... More

Had to come back during the same biz trip. Great salad bar and lot of perfectly prepared meat. Eyes wanted to eat more and more, but stomach had its limits. You will learn your real eating limits :)

A very unique and well worth it dining experience. The service was perfect they work as a team so no guest is overlooked drinks were refilled promptly and every questioned answered with a tremendous amount of knowledge. The meat was to die for OMG. Tender flavorful and rich if you ever get the chance definitely give it a try

If you live meat on the grill, then this is your kind of a place. They have a very large salad bar with some unusual things in it. The meat is continuous till you flip the stop card. They come to your table and cut meat right off the scour on to your plate. It is a Brazilian place. The... More

5th annual Fathers Day visit to Fogo, love that they give you a gift card for a free meal on a return visit - even though it expires in less than 60 days. Food as always is fabulous and the service exceptional. Love the salad bar, though easy to fill up and not enjoy as much meat since you are... More

Ok, my title might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but not that far off. I took my wife to Fogo for the Brazilan Churrascaria experience. I used to travel to Brazil often and one of my favorite things to do was to visit the local barbecue. They ranged from small one-horsed operations in villages to the original Fogo... More

Awesome food and service. They should offer multiple sauce choices to accompany the different meat choices. Felt a little rushed at lunch.
