My boyfriend & I dined at Fogo de Chao for the first time during Kansas City Restaurant Week January 2015. We were seated 5 minutes before our reserved time of 8:30pm which was nice. The salad bar was yummy. I particularly liked the sliced tomatoes & cheese and my boyfriend enjoyed the scalloped potatoes. The bread in the basket was... More

We have wanted to try this place for a while and finally made it. The service was fantastic with the entire staff working together to keep your needs met. The food was delicious! There was a huge salad bar with great selection and good sides to go with the meal. They have a huge meat selection and keep bringing it... More

I'm not a meat-eater. That said, Fogo de Chao is one of my favorite "special" places to go on special occasions. The vegetable & salad bar is the best of its kind in KC, bar none. The variety and uniqueness of its offerings surpasses any arrangement of sides you'll find offered in any other restaurant: fresh mozzarella, proscuitto, chilled grilled... More

We were a party or 10 and we all had a great time, the service was excellent and a very extended wine list. The best steak was the garlic picaña and the beef ribs.

Sat at crowded table; had to lean over when served; my wife consistently received meat with hard outer crust; really dampened our 40th anniversary

We decided at last minute today to do lunch on the Plaza, New Year's Day, and took a chance on Fogo! No worries, took less than 5 minutes and we were seated and enjoying the fabulous food and service we've enjoyed before! New addition was the seafood options, well worth trying"

Love this place. Eat here every time we visit the KC area. Waiters are attentive. Plenty of meat. The sides of caramelized bananas were refilled 4 times without us even asking. Last two times, we had to make a special request to have lamb brought. Never had to ask before. But they made is cooked to order for us.

I am my family are brazilian and we decide to spend the Christmas Eve on this restaurant that we know very well. I can say that they have good meat cuts that are difficult to find in USA. Picanha (top sirloin), fraudinha (botton sirloin) and beef ancho are the best. If you like sweet & sour please try caramel banana... More

Unique eating experience. You can look at it as the most expensive buffet you ever ate at, or, you can look at it as an all you can eat of some very fine food. I will go back again that is for sure.

Fogo is our favorite place to eat in KC! So much so in fact, that when my parents came into town for Thanksgiving we took them there and we were not disappointed. Aside from the truly delicious cuts of meat, they also served the traditional turkey, potatoes, etc Thanksgiving meal. First off, be prepared to eat and eat and a... More
