Delicious!! Very fresh and tasty vegetables on the salad bar - worth a second trip through - but the highlight was obviously the amazing meat. Our whole group had our fill and more. It was one of our more memorable meals in DC.

I agree with Gary. You will pay extra for that. But, if there is someone in your party who is not a meat eater, there are many other options in DC to choose from where everyone would be happy. I would not pay Fogo de Chao... More

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.
