WOW!!!!! Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Excellent salad bar (a thing of the past now a days!). Celebrated my teenage son's birthday. He was in awe. He loved it as did I!!!! Meats perfectly seasoned. They even gave him a free desert (Flan). Wait staff very attentive! Very expensive, however knew that before we entered. I will go back!!!

If you're craving red meat, this is a place to go. Choices from several cuts of beef, plus lamb, pork, and yes, even chicken. I was a little concerned that I would have to choose between a filet mignon or a rib eye or top sirloin; but not to worry, the gaucho brings a cut of cooked meat right to... More

If you are a meat lover you should not miss Fogo de Chao. The salad bar is extensive and the meat selection is excellent (with the pichana being my favorite) You flip the card to the green side to indicate that you would like to have more meat. If you are early you can have a drink in the bar.

If you like Brazilian steakhouses, you can't beat Fogo de Chao. You simply can't beat it. There are plenty of knockoffs, especially in the Houston area, but don't waste your time. I also recommend making a recommendation as the restaurant is very busy on most nights, and the wait without a reservation can be more than an hour. As for... More

They need to work a lot on the restaurant's atmosphere, it is really dated worn and completely boring. The food is good but for that price range you are expecting a better ambiance, more sophisticated.

I honestly think that this place is more the name than anything. I went to dinner with my husband and we were not impressed at all. I think since this was one of the first restaurants of this type, it kind of remained known as the new sensation but only by name. Not a great variety of meats, salad bar... More

We had a fantastic dinner. The meat is fantastic and the salad bar is divers and good. The AYCE is only for the meat and salad bar though. So when the staff asks, if you would like an appetizer, this will be extra.
