Great dining experience! Go light on the salad bar, it has much to offer but will fill you up. All the meat was delicious. They come fast and furious with the meat. Received advice from one of the waiters after we ate to chew slow and take breaks in between choices. It will help you sample more.

This place is amazing. The meat is delicious and the service is superb. I would recommend this restaurant to any meat lover. I ate more than I should have, and they were sad when I had to stop.

They made us feel special on my husbands birthday. Food and experience is second to none. Save your appetite because it's all you can eat steak, chicken, lamb chops and more. The staff is extremely professional and the service is impeccable!

This is one of those places you probably need to go to about every ten years. The food is good but the dining experience itself is probably the big attraction. I took a couple of college kids who had not been before and it was definitely an experience for them but I am not sure they would request this restaurant... More

I am Brazilian citizen as well as Italian. Fogo de Chão started in my hometown Porto Alegre,RS with a small place but full of news in the churrasco's town! Big deal at all! Fogo de Chão Houston is a good restaurant if you like good beef as well as plenty of salad.

A Great Salad Bar, but be careful not to take too much and spoil your appetite for the Brazilian Steak House. Great cuts of beef, tasty sausages, and Chicken

It is a great experience. Service is spectacular. The Picanya (sirloin served 2 ways) was fantastic. The Costela (the beef ribs) was like butter. I have never had meat that good!! So why the mediocre review? When you serve 11 different types of meat and can only deliver on 2 of them, that's a fail. The ribeye and the filet... More

If you're looking for a variety of high quality steak - and all you can eat, then this would definitely be a place I'd recommend. They have literally 9 or 10 different types of steak, pork and chicken which you can chose from which rotates around and gets served for you as much as you'd like. To start off with,... More

Stay away from the salad bar if you expect to eat any meat! I hate their "chip" system. It takes too long and you have to wait for the meat to come around. It's a circus atmosphere. Loud and not romantic at all and for the prices they're charging I expect a little romance. You can cook better meat at... More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent! The only reason I withheld a star was because I didn't feel like this restaurant was as formal as the price warrants.
