Description: Fogo de Chão(R) (fo-go dèe shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, Fogo(R) began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 20 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 market table, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

This Brazilian Steakhouse was a great dining experience. The salad bar had a large variety, mainly cold salads but all were delicious. Wished the black beans did not have pork since I don't eat pork but understand its used for flavoring. All the meats were fantastic! Very well seasoned. Servers were all friendly and attentive. Remembered how you liked the meat and your preference of temperature. The Brazilian lime/lemonade was fantastic!

Most other Brasilian steak houses (two othera in the vaxinity) are open only for dinner. Fogo de Chao is one othe better ones and is open for lunch.

Cost-wise it is cheaper to eat there for lunch. Awesome selection of meats and hreat salad bar. Quality cam be expected in amy othe their locations - I had seen it in Austin, Boston and now in Chcago.

Great service. If you like a sertain kind of meat just tell the aervers and they will bring it to you table.

Highly reccomend.

We have had many occasions to visit this wonderful place! The service is superb and the food so very good and tasty. I love the red and green buttons that you turn over for yes and no for more steak and other grilled meats! However I did miss the marinated shitake mushrooms. They used the plain mushrooms which were good, but here was something textural about the way the shitakes looked on the plate and their taste. In addition, the asparagus was no longer marinated, just parboiled. Very good, but not AS good.
