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

Okay, this is different! If you are a vegetarian, forget it! Four of us had late night reservations and were seated relatively quickly. As advised, we took it easy at the endless salad bar, which was well stocked with a variety of good eats. However, we could not stop eating their "rolls". I would describe them as popover-like and found out why they were so moist inside - mozzarella cheese! You cannot eat just one or two or three! The main course was a variety of 12 meats served on skewers by the wait staff. Tell them what you want, they cut it off the skewer and you eat it - all night long if you desire! The one thing that I will say is that if you are planning on a quiet, intimate dinner filled with conversation, this is not the place for you. This is because the wait staff is constantly attending to your carnivorous ways until you say stop! BTW, it is a bit pricey! If you have a big appetite it will be more of value to you than those who do not.

Fogo De Chao Brazilian Steakhouse was the most amazing restaurant that I've ever eaten at. No doubt about it ! The selection of steaks, chicken, lamb, fillet mignon so....many other selections to choose from. I ate to my meat lovers heart content ! Oh there is also an awesome salad bar selection. You definitely get your money's worth at this meat lovers establishment. I highly recommend this restaurant to others. Service was awesome. My wife & I paid for a wedding party but the price per plate seemed reasonable for the selection of items offered.

I understand that many feel this restaurant is above average as the reviews can attest. Many of our friends raved not only about the selection of meat (which was excellent), but about the salad bar. Really?? The salad bar was made to "look" like it was substantial but, in fact, only offered very few items. We paid premium prices for average food. If you're in downtown Indy, looking for quality and good value for your (hard earned) money, why not try The Weber Grill; Rock Bottom Brewery; Ruth's Chris; Palomino, etc.? Plus, you'll get to take your leftovers with you.
