4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A friend of mine had her birthday party here and I loved the place. The wait staff was very nice and friendly. Each one would have different cuts of meat with them and they will tell you what it is and how it is cooked. For example ribeye steak well done. If you are interested then you tell them yes... More

A great place with great meat. You won't leave hungry easy system for getting the meat to your table with green and red paper bricks that you turn around when you crave more meat. A bit quit at first but starts to fill up and get full around 19.30 with nice atmosphere. Highly recommended for meat lovers like me.

I recently visited this restaurant for my grandmother's birthday. It was my first time attending this establishment, so I asked a lot of questions. The staff was amazing, patient, and kind. I am vegan, so I had to make special request with all my food. The staff did not hesitate to accommodate me in the best way. Charlos made sure... More

The food quality here has definitely changed since our last visit. Every cut of meat was either overlooked or over seasoned . The ribeye had zero marbling and was very tough, the house steak was highly over seasoned, the filet wrapped in bacon www so over cooked and tough that nobody in our group finished more than one bite. The... More

The salad bar is authentic and has a huge selection. It's beyond a salad bar actually with smoked salmon and specialty salads, cheeses, veggies and more. We were there on business with a large group that they stuffed into a room that was too small. The meats while cooked perfectly were not as tasty as served in Brazil nor did... More

Very good restaurant, highly recommended for meat lovers. Good choices at the salad bar and great servings of grilled meat. A bit on the pricey side.

Fogo de Chao was a great restaurant. The food was great, especially the Filet Mignon. Melts in your mouth. The salad bar was good. The rolls were also appetizing. Rafaelle was an amazing server. We shared with the manager and he was thankful.We were treated to a free dessert for our anniversary.

We went to Fogo de Chao in Little Rock many years ago, and when we knew there is Fogo de Chao, we just had to go. The chain restaurant never disappoints. We loved the salad bar with so many varieties of salads and fruits as well as soup, desserts, and other items. The servers were all friendly, polite, and efficient.... More

This place was amazing! A little expensive, but, oh, so worth it! The service is great, and the meat is endless! The salad bar is very impressive! You will not leave hungry. The filet absolutely melts in your mouth! Be sure to eat the salaf bar items in between the different meats. I made the mistake of eating the salaf... More
