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.

So much meat

This place had very delicious food, excellent meat. I've never been to one of these places before, but I may start seeking them out! Salad bar was good too, but that's obviously a side note to the massive quantities of meat.

Great service. The food is amazing, top quality. The salad bar is a great compliment for the Brazilian spades, which were delicious as well. Great location downtown.

I've been to several Fogo de Chao restaurants over the years and they never disappoint. This was no exception. Plenty of amazing meats, great salad bar, superb service and generally sublime ambiance. I know whenever I choose Fogo de Chao, it's the right choice, no matter where I am.

Decided on Fogo De Chao to celebrate a special occasion for my son. In total, we had a party of five and had reservations so we were seated right away. Thankfully we were some of the first people up at the extensive buffet. Great selection of fresh vegetables, unique sides and items you wouldn't find on your average buffet. They... More

Great restaurants are packed for dinner, and pricey, so we skipped breakfast the next morning and for $30 apiece, dinned on the finest meats and exotic salad bar, featuring high quality salmon. It was even better in Brazil, but this chain is one of the best facsimiles. $9 parking across the street (Marina parking, connected to Riverwalk Marriott) lasts until... More

This was our second time at a Brazilian steak house and this is by far the best one. The food was amazing and the service was great. Our son had graduated from Air Force basic training and we took him there, the manager brought him a complimentary slice of amazing cake with congratulations written on the plate.
