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.

Great meat! Great veggies! Great wines (much better list than most places with a great selection of Ports!). Fogo uses better quality meats than many of it's rivals. You can eat all the filet you want, but I suggest the tri-tip or the sirloin for a better flavor. Some of our folks wanted more medium-well and the staff brought that level of doneness to them right away. Not cheap, but worth it.

Recommended by regular Chicago visitors, Fogo was very busy but the service was good. The salad bar was excellent and then the meat came. It wasn't the best meat I ahve ever eaten, but as you could have a litttle of everything it was very satisfying.

It's a pricey place to eat but my word is the food good, if you love meat, well look no further than here, you can eat as much as you like, there's also an excellent salad bar with lots of different variety's the atmosphere is also a joy to behold. You choose your salads from the vast variety at the salad bar and when you are ready, turn your red coaster over to green to start the array of meats that would be delivered and cut at your very table. When you're finished eating, turn the coaster back over to red to stop the waiter adding more meat on your plate.Highly recommend Chicago's Fogo de Chao.

We ALWAYS receive superior service at Fogo De Chao, but on this trip something special happened!
I had taken my fiancé out for a birthday lunch here on May 21, 2014
This has become our go-to place for birthdays for the last 2 years (both mine and his). I mentioned this to one of the servers and the server went above and beyond to make the day special by bringing us a surprise treat to celebrate the occasion.
I did not ask for this. It was just a gesture of kindness.

On top of that, the food is always A+++.

Thank you for another great birthday! See you in December!

This was my third visit to Fogo,once in Orlando and twice in Chicago, it really is a meat lovers paradise, as much beef, pork, chicken and lamb as you can eat, a salad bar so big it has its own postcode and some great wines... all in all a good night out, we were a table of 14 this time so got put in the rowdy room but there is another area in the restaurant if you're looking for a quiet table for two. I love it and WILL be back
