My wife and I went to Fogo on a recent Saturday night. We very much enjoyed our meals and intend to return.
Our waitperson (actually,more like a facilitator) warned us to go light on the buffet salad in order to save room for the entrees, and we are glad we listened to her.
There are approximately 10 different beef, chicken, and pork entrees, and you can sample them all. Just turn over your coaster to the "green" side, and gauchos with meat-filled skewers converge on you. After you turn the coasters to the red side, the gauchos politely disappear. By timing our service, we were able to enjoy almost all the types of dishes at a leisurely pace.
All tables are provided with caramelized bananas, parmesan-coated sticks of (polenta?), and small, warmed bread rolls. The bananas are so sweet and tasty, there is no need for dessert.
The house drink is made primarily from lime and sugary Rum - very acidic and unique (it grows on you). Fogo's coffee is delicious, and I ended my meal with a 25-year McCallen Scotch (careful - it's $65!).
Fogo is one of the top-rated restaurants in Denver - and our experience confirmed that rating.
