Description: Fogo de ChaoR (fo-go dee shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, FogoR began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

What can I say, this is one of my favorite restaurants, for the reasons outlined by many others. I come here quite often, so just want to share some tips for those concerned with the price/getting their money's worth and having a great experience: - Eat the better cuts if you want to get your money's worth. Filet, Ribeye, Lamb... More

If you have never had the Fogo experience, you are missing a treat! Our reservations were easily confirmed, allowing us to bypass the line. The salad bar had a wide selection, and remained stocked at all times. Now, make sure you remain conscious of the food card they give you. Once you turn it to green, they will come non-stop... More

This was our first dining experience ever at Fogo de Chao so we really didn't know what to expect. It far exceeded our expectations! We went for lunch on a Friday and the servers said that it was a slow afternoon, however it quickly filled up and was a very lively place. You surely dont have to worry about leaving... More

I sat at the bar and had the charcuterie board and the shrimp cocktail. The best huge shrimp and I always ask for a side of horseradish - they have great really strong horseradish just like I like it. The Mexican Martini's are my favorite drink in Maryland. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place

My husband and I chose Fogo de Chao in Baltimore to host our small wedding reception in one of their private back rooms. We chose Fogo for a few reasons. One we have always received exceptional service and delicious food at every visit and two it's where my husband had taken me to dinner the night he proposed. Jair the... More

It was a great experience, I really did enjoy my dinner there. There is a lot to get used to because waiters are constantly coming to the table. But, once you get used to the system, it gets better. I love how they have the salad bar set up and when they bring the sides to the table. Go there... More

The salad bar offers a great selection of meats and cheese. A friendly atmosphere with endless amounts of steak cooked to perfection... Just go.

So after reading mixed reviews, I took the challenge. Here goes: The valet parking has a smooth operation. Upon entering, the overall ambiance was reminiscent of a school cafeteria so forget a "quiet" dinner if that is your intent. Our server did not seem motiviated but rather flustered by being overwhelmed. We had to ask for things instead of having... More

Been to several Fogo de Chao before. This one was a bit disappointing because both the salad bar and the barbecue selection seemed a bit limited. Plus, no seafood in baltimore on the grill is also disappointing. Some of the meat that was served rare was overcooked and dried out. I did get some rare cuts of the fillet and... More
