    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.

    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.

    Looove the place! The meat is great, the cheese bread is delicious, the sides are good, the capirinhias are fantastic! Super friendly service, definitely worth the price!!

    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.

    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.

  • Bob F.
    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!

  • Adam L.
    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.
    Adam Law · October 21, 2012
  • David K.
    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.

    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!

    Excellent Brazilian BBQ. Remember to turn your chip over to red, or they'll have to roll you home.

    After spilling an entire bottle of wine down my leg, they charged me for it. Really?!? Dry cleaning isn't free folks. That's a customer service fail.

    Forget the salad bar - flip the chip to green - its all about the meat
