Great place to go with a crowd. Great drinks. Nice atmosphere and fantastic food. Salad bar to die for, and then the meat. Just don't eat too much salad. But it's really hard not to. It's all so good.

Ten associates from my firm along with a number of other teammates came here for dinner. We had a large party and we hadn't called ahead for seating arrangements. None of this was a problem. The staff didn't flinch to seat us. No wait. The restaurant was packed as it was a Friday night. We sat down and the staff... More

I've been to Fogos so far in 7 cities. Can you tell I"m a fan? There's nothing quite like this for overdosing in meat, great salad bar, and of course beverages, From location to location I've noticed that some cuts of meat are a bit better than others, but in general most of the quality is quite consistent. What does... More

If you want meat this is the place. Non stop meat kept coming to the table. Meat was great but the 'sides' and 'salad bar' where not all that good. But over all a over priced good meal.

The food is AMAZING!!! My husband and I have spent 3 of 5 of our anniversary's in Illinois and have enjoy an amazing dinner here each time we have visited! We are huge meat eaters so we enjoy the various types of meat that circulate (especially the LAMB!). Helpful tips: Try to limit yourself eating the salad bar goodies and... More

What can i say . If you love red meat this is the place for you. If want your meat well done.. well this NOT the place for you. The unlomited salad bar which is exotic is awesome.

If you're hungry and in the mood for high quality meat, there's no better place to go than a Brazilian steakhouse. For the uninitiated, guachos bring cuts of high quality meat to your table and cut off pieces for you. Most options are unique or would be part of the more expensive portion of a menu (ie - filet minon).... More

Fogo de Chão(R) (fo-go dèe shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, Fogo(R) began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 20 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 market table, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.
