“not the best Fogo the Chao”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We went for a lunch in a week day, the restaurant was not too busy, the decor is nice and have a good atmosphere, they offer a paid valet parking service or if you are lucky there is street parking available. The salad bar selection was poor, the rice almost inedible but after let the staff know they change it and serve us a better one. The meats are OK but nothing like other Fogo de Chao we visited (Dallas, Washington DC etc). The service was excellent, everybody was very nice, professional and handle a very good customer service, when we complained about the rice they serve us a fresh one and offer us free desserts to compensate the situation.
In brief, superb customer service but just OK food. In this area Texas do Brazil offers a better buffet and meats for similar prices.
PS: the ladies room was not well keep... all the bathrooms were dirty.

“Meat, meat and more meat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Love the history of this style of eating and if you ask the staff about it, they will be glad to expalin it to you. Make sure you don't fill up on the fantastic salad bar or you won't have room for all of the different kinds of meat and fixings that come along!
