We had friends come in to houston for a birthday and we took them to this restaurant for the first time. I must say the salad bar was endless as well as all the great tasting meats. The waiters bring endless different cuts of meats to the table. We ate so much and could not move to get up after... More

Aside from the amazing selection of dishes, the service is hands down the best of the best. Our server Tyler was 100% attentive and made sure that we never had a dry glass or empty plate. I cannot rave enough about out dining experience at Fogo De Chao. Wish we had one back home.

Plus, the... More

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.
