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.

Reservations = easy. Service = excellent. The salad bar was a little bit of a disappointment. It is not as good as it used to be. However, the the meat is delicious and it never quits coming!!! Beef, pork, chicken, lamb and sausage. Be sure to try the Lombos as they are delicious. Also try a Caipirinha. Caipirinha is Brazil's... More

What can I say about this incredible palace of meat that hasn't been said before? Easily made reservations via Opentable. Hostess was pleasant and guided us to our table. Great wine list. Salad bar has something for everyone. Fixed priced dinner (about $50/person) includes salad bar and as much savory meats as you can ingest. Gauchos (waiters) were quick to... More

Had lunch here having visited their sites in two other cities over the years. Salad bar is always a good start before the endless selections of grilled meat are served at your table. A big spurge but come hungry for a very filling meat lovers meal.

Fogo de Chao has never disappointed. Reservations for party of 9 were ready when we got there, including highchairs. Salad bar is great. Only thing I would add is a soup. There's a great variety of meats and the servers are very attentive. They provide nice desserts and on the house when celebrating an event. This is one of our... More

If you enjoy one server after another slicing over-cooked, under-seasoned meat onto your plate, then this is the place for you! My husband and I prefer meat that is properly cooked and an atmosphere that is quieter and not rushed. This is a case of More definitely being Less. The restaurant is dimly lit (Probably so you can't see the... More

The business associate that i was wish wanted to go here so i didn't have much choice. I should have just had the salad bar. Good selection and everything you need for a complete meal. The mashed potatoes left little to be desired, IMHO. The starch in a basket was good. The meats, except for the steak, were good, especially... More

Go hungry and skip the salad bar. The different meats just keep coming and coming. Everyone that I tried tasted great. Not for vegans.

My husband loves Fogo and therefore we've eaten at several of the locations. One thing can be said, they are consistent! Personally, I love the salad bar filled with fresh veggies and cheese. Yummmm!!!! Fogo SA did not disappoint. Wait staff is attentive and works as a team rather then an individual so your needs are always met immediately. As... More

Great place to eat if you are really hungry and if you are a meat lover. It is quite expensive, but it is worth it as you can eat all you want.

The quality of the food, both meats and salad bar, was excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. If you like Brazilian steakhouses, this is as good as gets. My only caveats are that there will be too much food. There will be too many varieties of meats, though they will all be prepared in a similar fashion. There are... More
