“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

OK, I have been to Fogo De Chao a couple of times and it is awesome. I was pleasantly suprised to find out that St. Joseph had a Brazilian Steakhouse in Em Chamas! Quality of meat was outstanding and plentiful. Lots of variety and perfectly seasoned and speedy service. The cold and hot buffets were very good as well (a little disappointed with the hot buffet selections) but the salad bar was great. Drinks were good and overall the bill is reasonable as well. Overall, a great experience and one I would recommend.

“Enjoy a different dining experience with lots of food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

This was the third time we have dined at Em Chamas in St Joseph. Each time we were greeted at the door by one or more friendly hostesses and provided immediate seating. We had reservations on one occasion but not the last two time. There is a $19.99 special prior to 6PM that saves a few dollars and still gives one access to the nice variety of meats available.

The atmosphere is rather casual in a long, rectangular dining room. While I have not been in the lounge area or other levels, there is room for hosting group gatherings. When a person is finished with the salad bar offerings, a token is used to signal to the waiters that are constantly navigating around the room with "meat-on-a-stick" that some of their offerings are desired. There is a nice variety of pork, beef and chicken available and one may accept their offering or reject it when approached.

If one enjoys lots of meats, this is a great place to partake of the many offerings. The staff has always been friendly and generally prompt in responding to requests. Try it. I think you'll like it.
