Anniversary (celiac friendly)

My husband took me here to celebrate our 5th anniversary. I am celiac and I made them aware. They brought me a list with what I couldn't have which was great because it was only a few things. The bread is gluten free and one of my favorites. The manager even made an exception and sent me home with... read more

Our group of five was very disappointed on a mid-May visit. Let me give the positives first: The salad bar is excellent, probably slightly better than Fogo's biggest competitor. We also liked the size of the restaurant, where its main competitor (hereafter "Restaurant B") is probably 3 times the size of Fogo. The picanha, their specialty meat, was outstanding--cooked and...

Really nice restaurant, as ambient and food. It does represent the brazilian Churrasco. I´ve been here with friends of all around the world and they liked it a lot. Tasty meat and nice drink. Melhor churrascaria que conheço fora do Brasil. Vale a pena matar a saudade do churrasco brasileiro nesse restaurante

From the salad and side bar to the rich desserts, everything is wonderful at this restaurant. It is very busy, always full at night and while not overly loud, it is not particularly suited to intimate conversation. Plan to be there at least ninety minutes to enjoy the experience. It is a Brazilian rodizio style dinner, where gauchos bring various... More

Very nice restaurant and was hesitant at first because of the prices, but once there, we felt we got our monies worth and more. The meat selection was fabulous and very tasty. The salad bar and sides had enough of a variety to suit my family's needs. Will go back soon.

Used to be my favorite restaurant in the world as I love meat and the Churrascaria concept panders to that love. However, the Houston Fogo seems to be in need of a makeover particularly as it is facing competition from start-ups on Westheimer including, especially, Chama Gaucha, which is more efficiently priced and has comparable and perhaps even better tasting...

Fogo De Chao is a Brazilian steak house. That's where the waiters come to the table with several different huge roasted meats and slice off what you want. The salad bar is extensive with a beautiful layout of different things. The veggies and sides that come with your meal are served family style. They give you a "meat menu" so... More

Excellent atmosphere, excellent service and most of all the food was fantastic. This is a place you must visit for a great meal and the cost was very reasonable . Make sure your hungry because the food will not stop until you tell them.

I was there for a business dinner with some colleagues of mine and it was incredible the amount of offering they provide. Starting from the buffet that you can re-fill whenever you want, than passing to the excellent meat. Good list of wine and dessert. Of course, bill is exepnsive (as expected)
