Description: 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.

“Best Brazilian Steakhouse in Dallas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Yeah I've been to all the other ones, they're all 5-star quality, however this one should get six and here's why:
The service here is spectacular. Usually you expect to wait about 15 minutes at a churrascaria for the meat to start flowing from the kitchen... these guys don't mess around. We started eating within 5 minutes of sitting down, barely enough time to peruse the salad bar, which is in itself, spectacular.

The meat is two cuts above MOST of the other churrascarias, with more choices as well. Usually you're able to choose from 5-7 cuts with 2 of the varieties being "spicy" or "garlic" on the same cut. There's probably 12 to choose from here and they're all BETTER than the competition.
I love the salad bar but, lets be honest, I come here for the meat. The salad bar is most definitely the most impressive of all the churrascarias; there is zero competition here. All of this put together plus the price equals the best Brazilian steakhouse in Dallas. Seriously, they're all the same price so you may as well just go here for the added service and quality.

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

This place continue keeping high standard

Great sallad bar
Amazing meats selection

Fast service , sometime too fast but u can ask to slowdown

50$ w/o drinks or desert for dinner but worth it
Kids 6-10 half and under free
Suggestions:
Plan for early dinner otherwise it will be packed and little noisy

Ask for there chimichuri sauce , really add flavor

Ask for the pan fried pepper if u like spicy

“$50=19 Cuts of Meat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Being completely uneducated with Brazilian steakhouses Fogo de Chao seemed like a bad idea to me. I was wrong. With an unlimited salad bar with everything imaginable and instant meaty service this place makes my top three favorite restaurants. The limeade was flavorful and the lombo and frango are very good as well. Overall a most pleasant dining experience.

“Simply Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We were visiting family in Dallas and wanted to go to a Brazilian style BBQ place. We just happen to pick Fogo De Chao. What luck!!! To start with the place is simply beautiful! You walk in and see that gigantic walkin rottissere with all the meat and you know your off to a good start. You are treated like a VIP from the start. The service was amazing. They know what you need just a second before you do and are there with out smothering. The food is to die for! My God! Just perfect! You have to be careful and not fill up at the "salad bar" bar because it's way more than a salad bar. This is a must expereince! We treated my parents and everyone in the group was floored by how great it was! We WILL go back when in Dallas!

“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

I ate here for the first time several years ago. I was most impressed with the service. Since then I have visited several other Brazillian steakhouses in the country, and I must say this place is still my favorite because of the service. I have never been here on a really busy night though.
