The Churrascaria is probably the best I evner experienced outside Brazil. The meat was perfect and the atmosphere was nice, not as stressful as you can experience sometimes at other Churrascarias. Staying alone, and waiting for the last slice of meat takes time, as they believe you are done, and are focusing on other clients that arrived after you! The... More

Went there on a Monday evening & got a table without a problem. Food was excellent and service was outstanding. We didn't think we had room left for desert but glad we tried anyway. Chocolate cakes were outstanding. Would go back anytime when in DC.

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.

This time we were told you could not have just the salad bar which is really all we wanted and all we really ate. The Manhattan was meh and overall the restaurant is just... More

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...

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.
