4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

From the valet parking service from time you pull up to the waitstaff & meat offerings, everyone was very very nice & attentive. We sat down & our waitress took our drink order & before she even left our table another waiter was delivering them to us. Fresh market buffet was delicious which had exotic offerings that weren't all labeled... More

This is my new favorite restaurant in Austin. Every ounce of food from the explosive salads and greens to the perfectly cooked meats was wonderful. The biggest problem is that im almost too full to walk back to hotel.

Went here with a group during a recent Keller Williams Mega Camp/conference. 18,000 top producing agents take over the City for a couple of Days in August every year. I found most of the meat to be overly salty. Service was good and they had a good Salad bar. I guess I was mainly disappointed as I felt it was... More

Fantastic service and the salad bar is really well stocked. The meat selections give you a great variety of choices. I highly recommend the lamb chops.

What an assortment of wonderful meats and everyone had a different favorite. The pork ribs were my favorites but steak and chicken were close seconds. Amazing flavor and service beyond great. First time for our group but we will return. Beans, rice and cheese muffins were a hit, too.

You can eat at Fogo de Chao if you're a vegetarian but you'll miss out on this Brazilian steakhouse's specialty. The format should be familiar by now: appropriately dressed gauchos/vaqueros bring meat stacked on a sword around the table and cut off hunks for you to eat: steak and beef, chicken, lamb, pork, and sausages. You eat until you're full.... More

I eat at Fogo's several times a year and they are always consistent. I like the experience of trying different meats (lamb is my favorite) and the salad bar is also a meal in itself! Service was also first rate.

Wow! Staff & Food was amazing. We felt like VIP status. Our server was amazing, she was so attentive with a great personality. The food was absolutely delightful. She even brought his desert and had a candle for him to blow out. A must do kind of place. Highly recommended.

Past experience in other places of the same brand, I wanted to give it a try in Austin. For $50 pp, excluding drinks, desserts and coffee, I thought that the beef was not of very high quality so the overall experience is somewhat disappointing. I will not be back

We were a party of 4 and had the lunch special. $15 for unlimited salad bar - which was wonderful plus $6 for a serving of their great sirloin. Service was second to none! I wanna go back soon!
