I can find nothing wrong with Fogo. The food is excellent. The service might be the best I've ever experienced. The salad bar is buffet style, lots of delicious options. Don't fill up on the salad bar, unless that's your thing. When you're ready for the meat options, be prepared -- a protein paradise! The sides were fresh, before we... More

We held a great dinner meeting for 10 at Fogo and were not disappointed. Several members of our team told us that Fogo was the best food they ever had..I agree! Service was prompt and very attentive. We had to slow down since the skewers of meat were coming faster than we could handle! All the meats were hot and... More

We moved to Texas a couple of years ago and have had several friends recommend Fogo de Chao. Wow what excellent tasting food from all the meats to the outstanding fresh salad bar. My wife and I were impressed by the tag team servers keeping our drinks and plates full explaining the cuts and style - what a delicious experience.... More

Fogo has been a special occasion place for our family for many years. We went a few Sundays @ 4pm. Our waiter was kind and efficient. Unfortunately, the service from the meat servers was SLOW and to top it off only two of the cuts we tried were fine and all others were dry and tough. It was not overcrowded,... More

If you have never been to Fogo de Chao, and you like meat, this is the place to go. The little round bread balls or bisquits (don't know the Fogo name) are wonderfully light and fluffly and they taste even better than they look. Downfall - they are addicting. You share mashed potatoes, bananas foster and what looks like perfectly... More

The quality of all the meats were amazing but I was looking forward to meats that were heavily marinated in brazilian spices and that was the only downfall. Overall very good meal.

Very good typical Brazilian place. Red card means stop, green equals MEATpocolypse! I should have taken the time to start off at the salad bar to even things out a bit and used the red card more but if anyone at your table is showing green, it's hard to pass. It's almost a bit stressful. My suggestion is use the... More

Fogo de Chao is a lot of fun. Great experience. Not special in the taste department for the price,in my opinion.
