The restaurant is located on two floors. Each has a salad bar: greens, fresh vegetables, grilled vegetables, cheese, ham, papaya, pineapple, salad four species, and so on. We were on the day of Thanksgiving, so was the pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie, turkey. The meat we tried 15 kinds (including chicken feet). There were just wonderful pieces, but they were... More

Enjoyed a wonderful family meal with meat aplenty. The market table has some intriguing choices to get started and the meats are cooked perfectly. Just remember to save room for dessert as the flan, cream brûlée and molten chocolate cakes are outstanding.

Lamb, Chicken, Prime Rib, Sirloin, NY Strip, Sausage and Turkey! They have the meats and it didn't stop. From the time we sat at 2pm till 4:15pm, we were treated as royalty. Thank-you.

When I first went to Brazil, I tasted, for the first time, the absolute delicious flavor of pampas grass-fed beef. Unfortunately there was an embargo on Brazilian beef at that time into the U.S. Since then, restaurants like Fogo have sprung up with authentic Brazilian beef and it is most heavenly to taste. The salad bar is totally amazing but... More

Loved this buzzing restaurant with energetic wait staff brandishing skewers with every manner of meat. It was fun and delicious. Expect a set menu and fixed price - but if you love meat it's for you,

Fogo de Chao is an experience that every foody should try. It's a loud, fast paced and vibrant Argentinian restaurant that excels in every way. The staff were fantastic and explained the eating process which started with a great 'help yourself' food bar which had salads, cold meats, salamis almost a deli. Using the Red/Green card system we were treated... More

Stopped in for drinks and an appetizer. The drinks were excellent. Good wine list and an excellent mango cocktail. The charcuterie plate had a nice selection highlighted by a creamy bleu cheese. Nice quiet atmosphere and courteous service. Would definitely go back.
