“No carb diet?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

It's been difficult to maintain a low carb diet primarily because I miss the potatoes, bread and pasta. The meats here were so good I didn't miss the carbs at all. The gauchos bring an excellent variety and carve at your table. The lamb chops and bottom roast are out if this world and I can't wait to go back. One of the best salad bars I've ever seen. If you've never been there its a must

“Delicious/ True Brazilian Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This restaurant is exactly what you are looking for in fine dining. The salad bar offers high end options. The special preparations of the meat make delicious offerings. The gauchos continue to offer all cuts of beef, pork, chicken, and our favorite, lamb. Served just as you request. And, if you are wanting a special cut of meat, they will gladly serve you exactly as you request. The papaya cream is a wonderful after dinner dessert to help settle your tummy, highly recommend it after eating a lot of meat!

“Pricey, but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

My wife and I stayed in Indianapolis over Valentine's Day weekend and had the pleasure of dining at Fogo De Chao. My wife has been to Brazil several times and had eaten at true Brazilian steakhouses. She had nothing but high praise for Fogo De Chao. I will admit the wait staff were a bit slow coming around with the meat, and it did take a fair bit to get the check; however, my wife and I merely used the time to talk and catch up.

The salad bar is like none other. The selection spans quite a range, and the food is prepared impeccably. I could have just dined at the salad bar and been happy.

The various steaks and other meat items were prepared very well and had a great flavor. It was nice being able to sample such a variety and to only eat what you wanted to eat. The side dishes were okay, but not great. I did enjoy the polenta, but the plantains and mashed potatoes were just okay.

I would recommend this restaurant to any couples looking for a nice atmosphere and great food. I did see a few group of guys hanging out and eating their weight in perfectly prepared steak as well.

To sum it up, this restaurant is insanely pricey but it's a great experience and well worth trying out. I would definitely take my wife here again. I will just allow my wallet some time to replenish itself from the beating it took.
