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

Fogo de Chao is a fun place to enjoy a unique meal. The Brazilian Steakhouse dining experience is different than your normal meal. They have a great salad bar with several distinctive items and some great salads. After the salad you will find servers walking around with meat on a stick and they will bring the freshly cooked selection to your table. Several other servers will ensure they you lack for nothing during the meal. The atmosphere is festive and loud and the food was fantastic. It was a great dining event.

Had to come back during the same biz trip. Great salad bar and lot of perfectly prepared meat. Eyes wanted to eat more and more, but stomach had its limits. You will learn your real eating limits :)

A very unique and well worth it dining experience. The service was perfect they work as a team so no guest is overlooked drinks were refilled promptly and every questioned answered with a tremendous amount of knowledge. The meat was to die for OMG. Tender flavorful and rich if you ever get the chance definitely give it a try

“Meat, Meat, Meat”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

If you live meat on the grill, then this is your kind of a place. They have a very large salad bar with some unusual things in it. The meat is continuous till you flip the stop card. They come to your table and cut meat right off the scour on to your plate. It is a Brazilian place. The price is spendy.... But it was a fine experience. Very good service.

“Love Fogo”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

5th annual Fathers Day visit to Fogo, love that they give you a gift card for a free meal on a return visit - even though it expires in less than 60 days. Food as always is fabulous and the service exceptional. Love the salad bar, though easy to fill up and not enjoy as much meat since you are too full. Disappointed that the much-advertised shrimp, either grilled or chilled, is not included on the $49,99 pricetag - in fact, it's a very expensive add-on. With 2 kids in tow, it is just too expensive. They need to come up with some shrimp on the skewer that is included, even if it's only one or two pieces. Price tag for 3 with drinks and tip was well over $200.00. Once a year special occasion is fine, but prohibitive any other time. Otherwise a great meal, lots of fun, good memories. One star deducted for misleading shrimp advertising and high prices.
