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.

Everyone was so nice and professional. I was very pleased with all of my food. I had questions about a few things on the salad bar and the attendant came right over and answered all of my questions. I Highly recommend!

So Cassy and I went to go float the river for the weekend and decided to explore the Riverwalk. We were recommended Fogo de Chao by the Concierge at our hotel and decided to give it a shot. We were going to drop in for a few Caipirinhas before our night out and decided to have a few appetizers. They... More

My husband and I had an excellent evening for two here the other night. Food was great, service was great. We sat in the front room by the window, it made for a very intimate dinner. I just had the salad bar and the hubby had enough meat for both of us. Excellent place for some quality food!

Looking for an upscale location to enjoy a quiet and savory meal. Neither the wife or I had ever been to Fogo de Chao so we thought we'd give it a try. Stepped inside, seated at a nice table, visited by a server and were surprised that we could not order off a menu but instead everyone is subject to... More

When I make arrangements to go to this restaurant, I make sure I go on an empty belly. Why I enjoy the place: - Space is well kept and clean - Service staff is eager to please - Salad bar selection is unparalleled - Meats are plentiful and continuous - Dessert offerings are a delight as well - Never run...

Food was okay, meats okay. I went there with my best friend to celebrate our birthdays. It was at night so it's expensive. Paid about $150 for two, seems too much. Didn't remember the food to be that great. Went to chama gaucha at lunchtime and it's way better. One time experience enough.

We never went to this type of place even though we have one in our home town. We are sorry about that now. Service was ok, we said we had never been there prior and he gave us the rushed version of what to do. We caught on pretty quick, but he missed out on a better tip by not... More

This place is awesome. I have always loved a good steak but am relatively health conscious so I don't like all the junk most restaurants put on their steaks. I love the simplicity of Fogo de Chao, amazing food and amazing service! The salad bar is awesome, jumbo asparagus, palmitos, smoked salmon and quinoa salad. We got a jumbo shrimp... More

We were walking down the street just out of our hotel in San Antonio and came across this brilliant Restaurant near the riverwalk and saw the steaming beef skewers from the window! They have a fantastic display that makes your mouth water when you gaze at it! We decided to have lunch there and it was spectacular. There is an... More
