    If you're a fan of meat (which you should be) this is your mecca. A vast array of various meats is brought by your table throughout your meal, and it doesn't stop until you tell them to. Amazing.

    Try to eat some of all 16 cuts of meat. Very good, but you might need a wheelbarrow to have them cart you out after it's all over! Loved every bite!

    MMMMM + 3 lb forks and a salad bar that will fill you up before you ever get to the meat course. oh and the fried plantains are a favorite for all.

    Not as good as the Brazilian version but still very good. Try the feijoada but fill up on the picanha. Excellent pao de queijo. I would have liked cupim.

    The bottom sirloin is a pleasant surprise; not the first thing people rush to order but it's tasty & VERY satisfying. Try it medium rare!

    Only take your favorite meats so you aren't full too fast. The filet mignon and the pork ribs rock. Chicken is a cheap meat, eat it at home!

    No ryes, it seems, but a decent selection for scotch. The caipirinha with St Germain's is a fine drink. The meats are incredible, but that's been said before.

    Arguably better than churrascarias in Brazil. If you've never been to one, the meats come around in a set order with the expensive cuts last, so don't fill up early.

    When I miss Brazilian churrasco (barbecue), Fogo de Chao is where I go to. Authentic, nicely done BBQ. Lunch is half price, which is a very good deal.

    Meat, meat, meat, just valet park and tell them "Ain't nobody got time for chicken!". Come hungry, leave stuffed.

    Here with a group of 10? Be considerate of those who've reserved that table after you. Made a reservation for 6:45 but had to wait until 7:45 for a party to leave after they paid their check.
