It is a Brazilian steakhouse. Incredible salad bar. All the steak / chicken you can eat. Meals come with fried bananas and mash potatoes. Trust me. It is a dining experience with great service. It is pricey.

One of the best places I've visited. The food was delicious, great service. A bit pricey but worth it. I loved the fried bananas entry.

As an avid carnivore, several friends and colleagues have recommended that I experience the "full Churrasco experience" at Fogo and to come armed with an empty stomach. Our group arrived for dinner on a weekday, and were given seating immediately. I was blown away by not only the food, but also the dining experience. The waiters and waitresses are extremely...

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.
