The best churrascaria IMHO

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... read 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.

If you are a TRUE carnivorous person, than this is the place to go,( beef chicken lamb pork sausage) however, in saying that they also have a outstanding garden salad buffet. It's pricey for lunch and very pricey for dinner even though its all you can eat. I don't feel I can eat the amount of food to off set... More

If you haven't had good Brazilian Barbeque, then go. But you will only want to once. It is a bit of a novelty. The salad bar very complete, and the meats are good and plentiful and the sides are good. But it is excessive. And that just doesn't feel good.
