Description: Fogo de ChaoR (fo-go dee shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, FogoR began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

“Never disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

The three of us stopped for lunch on a Friday and we weren't disappointed. The service was superb with the waitstaff anticipating our needs but not in our way.

The food is fresh and full of flavor. The waiter offered some sauces to help liven up the flavor a and we were not led astray.

Our seven year old daughter loved the food and didn't want to leave. She was game to try some new cuts of meat and loved them all.

“I like just having the Salad Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Even though this is a Brazilian Steakhouse ,, there is no need to pass this up if you are not a meat lover. I have enjoyed it both ways. Salad bar alone is a fully satisfying experience. Beautiful and fresh. Nice variety. The alone lamb is worth the experience.
