Excellent!

Went on a Friday night with my husband and 3 year old. The food was excellent and service stellar. They were very good with my son and went out of their way to please everyone. The only hiccup in the evening was when my wine was being poured it spilled over the table. The waiter tried to clean... read more

The Fo Go folks really know how to deliver large quantities of food with perfect preparation. This one is no exception. The service was excellent the food very well prepared. If you like large amounts of well prepared food this is excellent for that. Everything was fresh, well prepared and you can eat until you give up. Save room for... More

Unlimited meat, more than you could ever eat, it just keeps coming until you tell them to stop. Really good selection, different cuts of beef, lamb, pork, chicken (one wrapped in bacon!). Before you even get to the meat you hit the salad bar, it's superb and I could have easily made a whole meal from it.

We went for lunch on a wed afternoon. It definitely had a decent size crowd considering, so I was glad we made a reservation. I am not a huge steak person but ALL of the meat was yummy and perfectly seasoned. Some of the cuts were not for me but my husband liked them all. My favorite was the bacon... More

Excellent - great salad bar and really authentic. Meat came fast and furious and the Caiprahina was wonderful. The staff were really friendly and to be honest I could not fault it. We had a great $100 bottle of Malbec too. Decor and ambiance were also good. I heard it was a chain and they had opened one in NY... More

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. All the meats are grilled to perfection and served tableside by friendly and efficient servers - even the lamb was tasty and I don't ordinarily enjoy lamb. Only... More

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
