This restaurant has fabulous food! Hands down our favorite place in San Antonio for upscale cuisine. It is pricey but if you go for lunch, which we did, and go hungry it is well worth the money. There wasn't anything I could complain about. The service is fantastic. The food is delicious. There are food offerings I would never try... More

We went here because we heard the salad bar was so extravagant and good. Wow, now that was a salad bar! It had several types of lettuce, mixed salads, cheeses, tons of veggies (some I had never seen and was glad to get to try), smoked salmon and soup. We did not eat the meat as we only eat seafood...

Excellent food and service. We started with the massive salad bar and the meat kept coming. The Caipirinhas were tasty.

This was my first time to eat at a Brazilian steakhouse! The atmosphere, the service, the food were all top notch! Food was amazing and you will not leave hungry! Bar drinks were also yummy! Tres leches cake, key lime pie, and brownie all tasted yummy! You better bring some $$$$ with you though! It's totally worth it!

Although this is a steak house, to me the highlight was the wonderful salad bar. This would have been enough to eat. They had an amazing squash soup, bacon and yucca flour condiment, wonderful vegs, charcuterie, to name a few. The meats were excellent, but I found I couldn't eat them after the Sbar. With one drink , 59 ++... More

This review is based off experiences with the other Fogo do Chao's we have frequented in Addison, Washington D.C., and Austin. We arrived 20 mins early for our reservation and were politely greeted and seated early. We were presented with the shrimp cocktail up sell in the beginning, which we declined. As stated in the other reviews, the food and... More

If you are on a low carb diet and want to eat enough meat to make a vegan cry, this is the place for you. Servers, wearing Gaucho-wear will walk around and slice off pounds and pounds of delicious meats. A little pricey, but you won't need to eat for 2 or 3 days.

The salad bar was great. The meat selection was excellent and was always around. Also, the caipirinhas were delicious.

So I just had the most amazing experience at the Fogo de Chao by the San Antonio Riverwalk. We were in San Antonio with some friends and decided to give this place a shot. I am so glad I did. Everything was on point from the start of the meat to the finish. Service was excellent! Food was delish! Restaurant... More

This is a top-notch Brazilian steakhouse. Right from the start the salad bar is fresh with a lot of variety. The meats are all cooked properly and they'll bring out different levels of cooking (medium, med-rare, etc), which is something I haven't seen at many Brazilian steakhouses. The service was great too. I was in a large group and the... 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.
