I never thought about dining here for lunch but a colleague suggested we go there and it was great! They have a huge salad bar with extensive selections from green salads to roasted vegetables, someday salmon, soup, cheeses, proisciotto and much more. There is an option to add on chicken, lamb or beef for an additional charge. It was quite... More

Was seriously wondering why we went to a brazillian steakhouse over a traditional, but we were pleasantly surprised.

Good Brazilian style steakhouse. Service was a little slow. Salad seemed to be lacking a few items and limited side entree bar. Meats served were very good and tasty.

I have come here many times and had excellent service but yesterday it wasn't the same. I am not sure if they were overwhelmed because they were busy but it was weird. Food is excellent as always but once you get use to great service it's hard to get use to anything else.

This place was fantastic. Went to dinner here and from the moment we walked in were treated like royalty. The waiter fully explains what you are in for and how to ask for more skewers of food. The meats were wonderfully cooked. The vegetables were flavorful and tasty. It was a truly amazing experience.

I have had the good fortune to eat a few Fogo steakhouses, but this one is my favorite. If you have never had the chance, save up some cash and give it a try. The salad bar is superb and they don't skimp on your choices either... even providing proscuito as a choice. The meats are brought around to your... More

From the time we were greeted by Katerina, seated by Jade, and served by Kate, we felt like we were part of a very friendly family. The food was first class, with unending choices of fresh veggies, cheeses, and salad fixings to start. Then, savory meat options began to aromatically circulate through the room. A word to the wise, take... More

This is our third time at Fogo de Chao Austin downtown It is amazing from beginning to end! My husband made reservations for my B-Day and it turned out to be one of our most romantic meals this year. If you have never been here I recommend that you go on an empty stomach. We started with the valet and... More

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.
