I've been to probably 5 Foga de Chaos - throughout USA and one in Dubai. I'll probably stick to lunches from now on as none of them have ever proven to be as good as the first location I went to in Houston so if I'm going to eat there I'd rather pay half price (which is typical for their... More

I ate there for lunch today. Upon first glance the place is nicely decorated and accessible. For those who haven't eaten at one of these franchises you pick up your sides from a buffet then if you want meat you indicate so by displaying the green side of your table card. As long as you are displaying your green card... More

We booked this restaurant a few days ago... it has been a very snowy day, so I thought it was best to call to ensure they would be open. The lady told me we had to arrive before 7pm (our table was booked for 7pm) or we wouldn't be allowed in to eat. She then told me that they would... More

Okay so here goes. We were on a couples trip (6 people) and the planner of the group decided to go here. Off the bat I knew it was a bad idea. Any restaurant with a fixed price and a buffet (um hello scam) I do not recommend. We got to Fogo and discovered that you can realistically only get... More

Ate here on a Monday night, early, right before the big rush hit. We were a table of 4, two adult couples. There is something for everyone here. They offer two seafood entrees if you are not interested in the steaks/meats, and of course the salad bar is extensive, and varied, with rice, beans, soup, prepared salads, make your own... More

Been to Brazilian Steakhouses before, I wouldn't recommend this one of the bunch I've been to. Variety was limited, staff seemed more irritated than friendly when they were coming around, and the sides bar in the middle was average at best.

What an interesting restaurant. A huge salad bar and sides and the meat keeps coming. Its a fixed price main meal with a twist. You go to the awesome salad bar with all the normal items and a load of items from the area around Brazil. Then the fun starts. You have a disk at your place setting with red... More

I loved my experience here!! I was a very busy night the night we where there but service was amazing, and the food was delicious. In fact I am still thinking about it....If you love meat you came to the right place. I didn't have any fish, but if it tastes anything like the meat it will be delish! I... More

Chain restaurants can be hit or miss. We always enjoy this Fogo de Chao. Friendly, professional wait staff, amazing salad bar, and the quality of the meat is very good. The crowd at the restaurant always gives off a good, fun vibe, without being too boisterous. I really enjoy the Brazilian drink they serve called Caipirinha. Better version of a... More

I'm half Brazilian and very familiar with rodízio style restaurants. My family and I were excited to try this place on our visit to Boston. When we got there, we noticed no good self parking location, however valet parking was available for $20, reasonable for Boston parking fare. We had a reservations and got seated quickly.. then things started to... 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.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
