“Fun Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Fogo de Chao is well worth the money and a fun experience. Bring your appetite beccause the food is excellent and unlimited. I wouldn't recommend it for the less enthusiastic meat-eaters, however. The waiters are constantly walking around with spits of meat and it can make current/former/partial vegetarians a bit uncomfortable.

“unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Different from other restaurants I have been too. A lovely place for a Anniversary dinner. It is a buffet of the best meats,breads,vegetables, and more. The waiters just keep coming with it. They have so many different wines to pick from. I do not know where to begin. Must see....

“Be prepared to loosen your belt~”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Fogo is a special place for us to visit, but we always make sure to plan to go walking (shopping museum, park) afterwards, because they make sure you are stuffed to the gills! Many, many options on the salad bar, but go easy, because the meats are the true star of the meal. Gauchos come to your table with delicious meats, and you can often pick where you want them to cut from to get your preferred doneness. We would regularly take a couple of spoonfuls of our side dishes, and then look again to find that someone had come by and taken away a nearly full dish and replaced it with another, piping hot. The service is absolutely amazing, and the food is divine. One of my absolute favorites!!!

“Go hungry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Food here is excellent, service is the best. They have so many different cuts of meat they will bring around you will find plenty to enjoy and of course it is all you can eat. They also have a giant and fresh salad bar but i avoid it to save room for more food, the same hold true for the sides. They bring mashed potato, bread, and sweet plantains family style to the table. I will say this place is a little expensive especially if you want drinks so if your taking someone make sure they really like meat so you get your moneys worth. A tip I got that I would recommend is order the mango smoothie after you are finished, it really helps with when you have eaten too much!
