A chain restaurant but a really good one

Stopped in for an early dinner and had one of the better churrascaria experiences I've ever had. At over 50 dollars the price was dear but it was well worth the expense.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in January at Chima, Fogo de Chao's rival in Philadelphia. I returned to Fogo de Chao for the first time in 6 yrs with my brother and father last week. With both experiences fresh in my mind, I wanted to let fellow diners know if you have to choose, go with Chima!... More

I had been to the fogo de chao in Atlanta and was hoping this one would be just as great, especially since I was taking prospective clients that had never eaten at one. Thankfully it was! The salad bar is amazing (this is actually my girlfriends favorite part) and the meat was perfect. The waiters had no problems going to... More

Great atmosphere in the old J.E. Callweld(?) jewelry store for this restaurant. Very high ceilings and dark walls give the restaurant a stately feeling. You must be a true carnivore to truly love this place. There is a great salad and charcuterie bar to get started in the center of the room. The real treats are the non stop skewers... More

Don't fill up on the salad bar, eat the incredibly cooked variety of meats. Don't cave in & eat the complimentary plantains & cheese rolls. Great atmosphere for a nice night out but unfortunately most women can't eat the cost of the dinner. Just grab a bunch of friends with big appetites & go with an appetite. Save a small... More

Hey, come hungry. Eat your meat....first. The Europeans do. The salad bar is amazing and you may fill up before you get to the amazing meats. Isn't this why you came here. Get your money's worth and eat the meat first. There are wonderful items on the very expansive salad bar and I don't recommend you skip it, just make... More

To start off we waited at bar for drinks, bartenders seemed very uninterested in serving or explaining the cocktails. The hostess looked bored even with a large crowd. Our server was very sweet. The salad bar had a lot of offerings but its complete chaos. The meat was plentiful but I felt like they kept coming with the same selections... More

From the valet parking to the best cup of coffee I've had in forty years, our experience was wonderful. We were celebrating a retirement and we were seated for dinner quickly. I started with a Cuban Libre that was in perfect proportion. Others had beer or fruity pretty drinks with berries. Everything a patron might wish for can be had.... More

A visit to this restaurant is a must, the food and service are second to none. The quality of meats served are excellent and served in ant quantity which suits you. Difficult not overeat with such a fantastic choice.

We visited Fogo's to celebrate our birthdays. The atmosphere was great the server was awesome. They have the most friendliest staff. The meat was delicious some items were a bit salty but overall it was good. The salad bar could have been better. It should have offered a better selection. It's an all you can eat establishment but after a... More
