I have never been unhappy with this place. In fact it's a regular meat lovers delight. And the salad bar is absolutely outrageous. Make sure when they bring the lamb out to grab some. It is out of this world wonderful! The staff is superbly attentive.

I usually get second class treatment at churrascarias because I don't eat meat. Fogo de Chao was far from my usual experience. The market (salad) bar was excellent. All fresh; all perfectly prepared and well-seasoned. There was a Chilean Sea Bass entree option with a fresh, bright mango salsa. It came out before my husband was finished with his parade... More

I have been to Brazilian steakhouses before but this one is by far the best I've been to. The food was delicious from the salad bar to the many different meat selections. And the staff were all amazing. Very attentive and great teamwork. This is definitely worth a visit for that special occasion.

I love Brazilian steakhouses so I'm totally biased here, but I have been to some really let-down ones and this was very good. My favorite so far in Austin that they have had. I recommend for a business lunch you are bound to be relaxed and spoilt which is half the fun.

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.
