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.

“Bring on the meat”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Recommend that if you want room for all the wonderful meat, skimp on the salad bar and save some room. Oh, and don't forget to flip the disc from green side to red side or the meat servers will just keep coming! Fantastic place, 5 star food at a decent price!

This was our first experience with a brazilian steakhouse and boy were we impressed. Once you get over the sticker shock you can sample a wide variety of meats cooked perfectly. I never knew good meat until we ate here. The service was also top notch and would refill your glass before iy was under a quarter empty.

“Superb cuts perfectly cooked”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

I was invited with my wife to this restaurateur for a dinner. Good thing we had not dined properly the whole day! Delightful atmosphere, open salad bar which is humongous though more Italian oriented than Brazilian. Don't get too carried away though unless you mean to reduce your red meat consumption. The food is the Brazilian grill where they feed you meat till you surrender!!

Excellent cuts of beef, veal, lamb and chicken cooked to perfection, you choose how done you like it, personally I'm a medium well except for the fillet mignon where I take it medium. Perfect every time.

Friendly staff prompt service.

If you have room for dessert go for it, sinful!! We were invited but I suspect the place is pricey..

“Very good food”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

If you love meat, this is the place! Everything was very good, except the noice and the level of stress. We were 3 couple and could only talk to the closest person, because of the noise.
Bring your friends, but not a date
