Food was good and atmosphere was unique but it was a bit of a sticker shock. $50.95 for the typical dinner for one person and a bottle of water at 6.50. Probably not a place I would go back to without winning a lottery.

And all so good. I didn't know I ever had limitations on how much I could eat until dining here. What wonderful folks and food. They kept it all coming and all so tasty too. This is a treat and we'll worth the price.

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...More

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...More
