Delicious Assortment of Meats!

We went to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday. He is a big meat eater, so what better place to take him than to a churrascaria. We had an early dinner reservation and were seated promptly. Right off the bat we went to the immense salad bar which is an experience in and of itself! There is a good... read more

Hadn't been back in awhile as the Orlando location gave me food poisoning about two years back. Their customer service on the situation was poor, they wanted me to dig for a receipt to give them some numbers on it from my food poisoning experience as they served way undercooked lamb. Funny, this time I go to the Houston location... More

We often go to churrascarias, so we have a lot of comparison experiences. The picana was perfect, much more strongly flavored in both the meat and the garlic than other places. The salad bar was spectacular - bigger hearts of palm, better tomatoes, better chicken salad, better potato salad, thicker and tastier asparagus. I could go there for the salad... More

I've brought my family here many times and we have all enjoyed the atmosphere and the people that serve there. We enjoyed it so much, I started bring my employee's there for group dinners. Everyone loved this place and the meals are excellent.

My husband and I went to Fogo de Chao for our anniversary after many recommendations from family and friends. We had reservations for 8:00 and were seated on time. Our drink orders were taken and we were directed to the salad bar. My husband inquired about the potatoes which were not on the bar (there was an empty space where... More

Not for the petite appetite! Good salad bar and lots of wonderful meats served from huge skewers, as much as you like. A pricey dinner especially with drinks - save it for a special occasion!

A bit of a wait even with a reservation but nice bar area to wait in. A little loud but they were busy and it was expected. One of the best salad bars you will encounter. Best selection of meats brought to your table and all prepared above average, some exceptional. Virtually impossible to try it all as even sampling... More

I love this place. If I had to complain about something, beware of the salad bar. It is so good you will want to fill up on it BUT don't. I usually hold out for the best cuts of meat but some of the sirloin special house favorites are worth the space on your plate. Desserts are really good but... More

All of the meats were well prepared & the portions keep coming. you could gorge yourself on meat alone. For the omnivorous the salad bar is one of the best around.
