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.

Ok, what is unique is the guys in the funny pants constantly harassing you by bringing more meat to your table. The concept is not unique, the Brazilian steakhouse gig is available under any number of names in any big city near you. Its fun but I could only stand to do it once every few years. The salad bar...

Very good food and atmosphere. It is important to make a reservation on the weekends before going because it gets crowded.

Fogo de Chao; Our first time. The wife and I tend to eat on the lighter side, but we were out for our 28th wedding anniversary, so we thought let us try something new, I have heard from several friends about this restaurant. The experience was so incredible, as was the food. The lamb chops were our favorite, but the... More

We have been to this restaurant in different cities and usually celebrate a special occasion. Their salad bar is out of this world-I could eat just that and be content. I also like the attention to detail, all the servers bus your table and refill your drinks. As a result, we get outstanding service!

Very good service, very good food. Very good caipirinhas. Several of the staff are Brazilians and are glad to speak Portuguese with you. All the meats - very tasty. Salad/veggie bar - very tasty. Black beans and rice - very nice.

I cannot describe the salad bar, there is likely nothing that you can imagine that is not on it. Table service is great, and they bring you entree's constantly. I am a great fan of Lamb Rib chops, and they are in endless supply, and very well cooked...as are all the other meats. You have to try this one.

We had reservations on a busy night and still had to wait to be seated as they had several reservations and walk ins they were seating before us, including people who were there 30 prior to their reservation time. The dining room is nice and elegant but there are no views of the riverwalk. The salad bar and drinks were... More

I was in San Antonio for a conference and after a long day at work I needed some blood. I certainly enjoyed all the different meats they bring to your table. All prepared by a master of the grill. They say they will bring you 15 different cuts of meat, it may be true, but after a while you stop... More

wow! this place was quite the experience. We went with another couple and had a beautiful time. It is VERY expensive so plan for it and go hungry- you will need it. The salad bar is the most incredible thing I have ever seen. It has smoked salmon and chicken and cheeses and every kind of green imaginable. I opted... More

We first saw Fogo de Chao on the travel channel and purposed to find a venue to sample. Lucky us my job took us to a conference in San Antonio where Fogo de Chao was within a few blocks. This is the real deal! Servers are alert and attentive without being instrusive. Cuisine was beyond expectations, the travel channel did... More
