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

You had better be a meat lover if you are dining here. There are lots of selections, and it is easy to over eat. I liked it, but it would not be my first choice for downtown dining.

Going while businesses are having Christmas parties made it interesting to say the least. Having been here a few times when it was slow. I suggest picking an off time to go. The service was attentive. The salad bar is a cut above most salad bars, and kept stocked even as crazy as it was in there. For being that crowded you still felt that you were not being crowded while sitting. This isn't a romantic setting, so if you are doing the love thing you might want to find some place quieter. The staff kept meat coming the whole time. The only part they lacked in was having well done meat with that many people eating there. If you ask them for it they will go and get you some. Other times haven't been a problem. Come hungry and try all the meats. Make sure to try their Lime drink, very different , light and refreshing.

We usually eat at Fogo 3-4 times a year when the kids are off from school. Food is great, especially the salad bar. Attentive service from all of the personnel. Always a treat for our kids.

We recently visited this restaurant with another couple. The four of us really love meat and thought what a perfect place to get together and try something new. The service is impecable, the salad bar was okay, which was fine by us as we went there for the main course. Although the meat had wonderful favors, we had to continually ask for medium temp beef and time and again the servers would come around with rare beef which none of us could eat, we filled up on chicken and pork. We were very disappointed with this and for the price of the meal, zwould probably not return.
