“Disapointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Arrived with big expectations after being in the one in Houston but left disapointed.
Rodizio is all about tasting all the different cuts but I was only offered 4 and actually had to ask for some of them
Caipirinhas are also average
The modern fancy room/service is a big contrast of the Gaucho way of living they're trying to serve
Looses by miles to their main competitor Porcao

“Great meat! However, too noisy and crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

The formula is simple: a buffet for the starters, and then meat as much as you can eat! The meat is ally good, and they serve more than 10 different cuts. The service is really good, always trying to please. However, they focus a lot on pushing you to order more drinks.

The only con is the place is too noisy and crowded. Nice restaurant in all for meat lovers!!

“Lots and lots of good barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

For a fixed price, eat a lot more than you can possibly imagine. All types of meat, from Beef to Sea-food, with various salads and other sides, all included. All the meat is barbecued over a charcoal fire.

“Best churasscaria in rio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Fogo de Chao is the best churasscaria in Rio. Great meat, great salad buffet and great wine list--try a Brazilian red. They can be very good and are never exported.
