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.

“Excelent place to eat meat and relax”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We enjoyed the buffet where you can have all kind of salads and more, and of course the meat which is served on request from mobile skewers. The meat was absolutely perfect. The service was excellent and the Chilian wine which was recommended by the sommelier, superb. The " tres leches" dessert is amazing. Excellent time spend there for the food and the atmosphere.

“A truly unique dining experience”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I have heard of Brazilian steakhouses, but have none within easy driving distance of our hometown.While in Phoenix visiting our son and girlfriend,we treated them to an early birthday dinner.We chose a Friday evening, so it was busy,but with reservations(which are highly recommended.), were seated quickly. Our host confirmed that this was our first visit,and explained how the meat service worked- red coaster up- we're taking a break, thank you and green coaster up- bring it on!! The first course salad bar was wonderful- just don't fill up on it.The sides served with the meat were excellent- plantains, fried polenta, little cheese biscuits. The meat of course is the star of the show, The beef and lamb were excellent- chicken and pork were OK, but not the caliber of the others.There is and excellent wine list, with several bottles on special.We finished this outstanding meal( about 2 hours),with a mango cream shared by all of us for dessert..I seriously consider this to be a dining experience,so be prepared to have the time, money and state of mind to enjoy it- we did.

“Chacun à son goût”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Judging by all the other reviews my wife and I are the only ones who do not like this place but here are reasons why. First of all it's a large dining room with a salad bar plopped right in the middle and reminds us of a fancy cafeteria. It's very noisy and just does not have the ambiance of an expensive restaurant... and it is expensive considering what it is! It's a flat $50 each for all you can eat. They tell you that they have fifteen cuts of various meats but there are only ten shown on the menu so you have to ask for the others. Not surprisingly they push the very ordinary salad bar to get you to fill up on the cheap stuff and when the servers do come around they push the cheaper cuts of meat including sausages. Whatever meat you take is so heavily salted that you have to guzzle liquids (and some of the wines are marked up an outrageous 300+%) filling you up even more so you eat even less. Except for two cuts of beef we thought the food was quite poor, and we had to request those two cuts as they were not offered as liberally as say the sausages which they really pushed frequently.
We would never return.
