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

We went to Fogo de Chao based on recomendations from other users for a late Christmas celebration.
The salad bar was very good - lots of selection and good flavors.
The meat - while very tender and well cooked all tasted the same. Almost all of it was so heavily seasoned with Salt - you couldn't even taste the flavor of the meat.
Also - my wife liking her steak medium well done (yeah I know - but some people like things fully cooked) had a hard time with how rare the meat came off the spits.

You get so much more than what you pay for at Fogo. Excellent salad bar featuring fresh italian cheeses and meats. The meat is amazing, at most steak houses you pay $35-40 for a steak (not any sides). Here you pay around the same price for all you can eat meat (deliciously seasoned meats-filet, pork, lamb), salad bar and sides. The service is excellent-there are many people always asking to get you anything you want.

If you like something specific, like you really liked the bacon wrapped chicken-they will bring it for you or you only like well-cooked meats-they will make a special order for you.

No questions-It is a lot of food! So I recommend you eat very little the day you are going.
