Description: We are an authentic Churrascaria (Brazilian Steakhouse) from Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil which features superior service, unrivaled cuisine and a unique dining experience.You will be pampered by our authentic Gaucho chefs who come to your tableside to carve a variety of succulent meats right off their skewers. Our featured meats have been slow-roasted over an open flame and lightly seasoned to preserve the unique taste of each tender cut.Adding to our unique dining experience, you will be treated to a sumptuous, gourmet salad and vegetable bar featuring over 30 items including imported cheeses, cured meats, fresh vegetables and more. We complement your meal with traditional Brazilian side dishes such as caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, seasoned mashed potatoes and our world-famous cheese bread (pao de queijo).No meal is complete without trying a refreshing caipirinha, something from our award-winning wine list or one of our decadent desserts.

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.

After going to Rodizios, I was definitely impressed with this place... Just as much as I am with Rodizio. But, the biggest difference I saw between the two was the unique variety at Rodizio, that wasn't here. But, this place had a Parmesean grilled pork loin, and that could probably be the single greatest piece of pork I have ever had.

It had been several years since we had eaten at one of these Brazilian steakhouses but the quality has not backed off one bit. The staff is falling over themselves to take care of you and the food is excellent. Unless you are early, do the valet parking as it is free except for tip and know that the price of the food is not for the faint hearted but well worth every penny.
