This was my third visit to Fogo de Chao Philadelphia in as many years, and l have never been disappointed. Located in what were once bank premises, it has that warm atmosphere of yesteryear. We had a 7.30 pm seating, which is, perhaps, advisable, neither too early nor too late, as later on you may have to wait, if the... More

Being a meatlover highly appreciated. Only minor remark was that the meat was a bit salty I certainly would recommend this resto.

Arrived downtown, had hard time finding parking in the city. Valet parking at Fogo De Chao was nice enough to add 18$ park charge to our food tab. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a bubbly host who wanted nothing more than to make us feel at home. We were led to our seats where our chairs were... More

I love steak and I love a good steak...you cannot go wrong with Fugo De Chao in Philadelphia. My husband is in the food industry so it can be difficult to go to any restaurant with him as he always can pick out the faults and cheap cuts a restaurant may do but we were both so impressed not only...

The meat was very good but Texas de Brazil is better. I would eat here again but only if there wasn't a texas de brazil nearby.

Forget your Wives, forget your Girlfriends,.....Hell, Don't even bring a girl to this place. I made this mistake during restaurant week where the rate per person is $35. Females in my party were only eating from the salad bar and taking bites out of the bacon wrapped chicken....weak. Bring your buddies and enjoy the numerous different kinds of meats that... More

The first impression is Great. The service is wonderful and attentive. The salad bar is more a gourmet bar with some excellent choices. Than the meat starts to come upon the turn of green. The only problem is not getting the whole variety without asking. I had to ask three times to get the leg of Lamb and Lamb chops.... More
