We took a friend here for a celebratory lunch, and had a great time. Yes, it's meat. And more meat. And just when you thought you'd have a salad, meat. Everything we tried was beautifully prepared and the servers will happily stuff you until you are ready to roll out the door.

It took me sometime to write this review, for it was upsetting somewhat and I just wanted to forget about it because it was a special occasion. Sadly,I haven't forgotten about the detail. Having this planned for three weeks, a celebration. I had called ahead and requested seating and wanted to have dessert with message made known to the staff... More

My friends and I were so excited that there was a Fogo de Chao in DC, that we made reservations 2 month in advance, before arriving in DC. This is one of our favorite restaurants! The salad bar is incredible! The beef, chicken, pork "All" amazingly delicious! And the flan is just like my mom use to bake, delicious! Of... More

You know what to expect when you visit a Fogo de Chao restaurant. And I have visited many throughout the States and even a couple in Brazil. Those in the states can only set them apart through the service offered by the waiter appointed to your table. Our server on Sunday July 17th did an excellent job making sure our... More

Wonderful service and delicious cuts of meats. All you can eat! Just like the other reviews say they come to you. You just flip your card on the table. My kids thought it was amazing. We had made a reservation for 1:00. It was not busy for lunch. They sat us right away. Friendly staff. Make sure you go when... More

Don't go here if your not hungry! This is place to be if you are a meat eater. They keep bringing meat selections until you yell calf rope by turning the card to the red side. They also have a great salad bar with the standard stuff but then they have some selection that are not usually offered and it... More

We visited this restaurant last week. It is always a great decision. We wanted steak and lamb and we sure got it. All the meat is always seasoned to perfection. You could literally tell your waiter or waitress what you want to taste and they'll bring it out just for you. This restaurant has two levels great ambience and has... More

The most delicious cuts of meat I have ever tried, succulent, moist, tasty awsome. I do think that we should have gone there earlier than we did, I would recommend getting a table for 6:30 or 7pm, simply because it takes so long to digest such a lot of meat. V nice though.

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.
