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.

Fogo de Chao is worth every delicious penny for eager carnivores. Their salad bar is unrivaled, but don't let yourself be tempted too much. Bottom sirloin fatty, crispy, and delicious!

“The real BBQ”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Well, I'm a Brazilian and I was tired of hamburgers and american food. So, I decided to go to the Fogo de Chão with a friend of mine, even knowing that it would be expensive.
The food was amazing, better than the BBQ of some posh places on the town, the waiters were friendly and, when I received the check, the best part, the total was 70 $ for two people, what is cheeper than any good BBQ places and even than Brazilian Fogo de Chão.
I strongly recommend to go there on the lunch, it is cheeper and you will not have problems to sleep after eating much meat.

“Fogo de Chao....go hungry with a huge appetite”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

A Brazilian steakhouse with a wide variety of meats brought to your table for your selection. The meal begins with a trip to the very complete salad bar along with little bread bits to die for. There are over 11 varieties of meat for your choosing. Simply turn a chip from red to green and servers stop by your table to see if you are interested in what they have. The entire meal was delicious which made for an enjoyable evening.
