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.

“Great Meat and Service”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Celebrated New Year's Eve at this restaurant and it did not dissappoint. Food and service was excellent even for a holiday. They offered 17 kinds of meat brought to your table on swords fresh and hot. Salad bar was great. Word of advice....don't fill up on the salad bar and bread...you will be sorry you did. Leave room for all the wonderful meat...they keep bringing it until you can't eat anymore.....great experience for your special event.

“Annual Lunch”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

About 20 of us go every year before everyone goes on holiday vacation for December. I agree with all the 5 star reviews. If you go with a big group, expect a 3 hour lunch though because it takes a long time for dessert and coffee, and then even longer for the bill.

There's one item that they failed to bring back often, even after we kept asking - Beef Ribs. You can't find a more tender piece cut from a beef ribs. We found the trick was for a woman to ask and then we got it. If any of the guys asked, no one ever returned.

If you're not into the huge meat extravaganza, then the salad bar is quite impressive. It's not the typical salad bar. Aside from the usual salad options on one side, there's unique items everywhere else. Instead of bacon bits, there's whole strips of thick bacon. There's chicken salad. The potato salad is not the typical mustard one at a deli. You don't find hearts of palm anywhere else. The parmesan cheese is cut from an actual cheese wheel. The mediterranean salad was good. Oh and chocolate covered strawberries. I'd go back just for the salad bar.

“If you enjoy meat”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

The perfect place for carnivores. Various cuts of delicious meats to choose from where they carve it tableside. Highlights were the filet, ribeye, lamb chops and chicken legs. Salad bar beforehand is also full of goodies. Beyond the food the service is excellent and the restaurant is top notch.

“A great family gathering”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We recently celebrated our Son and daughter-in-law's anniversary here. We had gone on a Friday at lunchtime. We were very impressed. A lot of times when you arrive at restaurants with young children you are seated in the back and largely ignored, but not here. They made all of us feel welcome. As the different servers came by they treated the children with respect and they were very friendly. They allow you to pace the meal at your needs. All the waitstaff is very attentive and will bend over backwards to accommodate your needs. If the meat they are serving is not the way you like it cook ed they will come back with a piece just like you like it done. The salad bar was phenomenal. They also had coconut crusted haddock in case you did not want to meat. It is a fairly pricey restaurant, however, it is well worth the money spent. The luncheon is substantially lower price than the supper. There was no charge for the young children and when they found out it was an anniversary celebration they provided a free dessert for the anniversary couple. There is a Fogo de Chao in Miami near where we live and you can be sure we will be going there.

“A meal fit for a meat connoisseur..”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Fogo De Chao means, Campfire. And, what a campfire of food we ate. We toured the kitchen to see how the meat was prepared. Gaucho dressed gentlemen select the meat in the cooler, slice, season, cook over coals & mesquite and deliver the particular meat they are assigned, all night long. Sixteen cuts of meat, served the was you like it cooked. Just ask and they will bring. It was a special occasion and we were treated royally. The decadent dessert $8 plus dollars was complimentary. The meal ran $49 per person and if you just want the salad bar, its $22. Service was excellent. They aim to please and are happy to serve you. We loved the rib eye, filet mignon, prime sirloin, top sirloin, leg of lamb, and chicken legs. I have never experienced an entire plate filled with different cuts of meats that complement each other. They can do group events from 15 to 200 people. Its an experience we will always remember!
