Fantastic restaurant to enjoy a wide variety of grilled meats. The side dishes are very good and the salad bar is phenomenal. However I would skip the salad bar and go easy on the delicious bread roles to save room for the meats! They have an excellent wine selection too. Make sure you show up hungry!

We booked a group of 19 at the last minute and changed the start time several times. The sales staff was extremely accommodating and helpful and was able to get us into the semi-private room at no extra charge. The meal was wonderful and the service was excellent. All the staff is friendly, attentive and engaging without being intrusive. I... More

Excellent food and brilliant service. Novel idea of having a red and green disk to tell the waiters when you wanted serving. Great staff, very knowledgeable. Would certainly go again.

As always, Fogo's meats and service are second to none! We went here with a group of friends, and the atmosphere and food were wonderful! This is always a stop of ours!

This was the first time we had visited this type of restaurant. We were a group of 6. The service was great, the waiter was Johnny on the spot during out entire meal. Several of the other folks had eaten at other locations and they cautioned us to go slow, to no avail. We started at the great salad bar... More

This is my second visit to Fogo de Chao and it was a treat both times. You have a marvelous salad bar followed by a endless supply of delicious meats ranging from prime rib to chicken to lamb to pork to steak. As long as you have the green side up on your coaster then the servers will regularly stop... More

Have been here a few times at lunch with the office crowd. The last couple of times have been disappointed. Meat was overcooked, poor service to our table, and salad bar was lacking. For the experience, its worth a visit, but unless they do better on the food and service, I won't be back. Just don't expect too much.

The Houston branch is more up scale that a few other branches that I have visited. This is a great place for all you can eat high quality steak The beef is tender and juicy served at your table. There is a reasonably good salad buffet too.
