4 of us went to Fogo de Chao on December 30, 2017. It was an experience! The salad bar is an entire feast in and of itself. The best butternut squash soup I have had in a long time. And although i am not a bacon fan, I was amazed at how many people were piling their plates full of bacon and taking it to their tables! The salad bar itself could be a meal. Once we finished our salads we turned over our place card to green, and was overwhelmed when several waiters came and brought us their selections of meat. We tried the 16 meat experience and for the women, it was just too much food. They got through around 8 tastes and had enough! The tenderloin was excellent and the only negative was that the chicken was way too salty. Unless you have a HUGE appetite, I wouldn't recommend the 16 meat experience. The smaller experience or even choosing one selection would still be worth the trip. One thing to note - register online and get $25 off on your birthday and/or $15 off your next trip (although you only have a couple of weeks from registration to use it). The regular waitstaff service was ok - we had to ask for things 4 or 5 times before we got them (i.e. drinks, new plates, etc.) But the food was excellent.

We went here for a family reunion. There were 13 of us. They seated us on one long table and immediately started offering the meats. They were delicious. One of us kept asking for filet mignon and they never refused! The salad bar is amazing- especially the apple salad- it's to die for. The drinks are also fantastic! It's a bit pricey but well worth it.

We went during a snowstorm for our basketball Christmas outing two weeks ago. There were few customers because of the snow. Surprising that the service was so mediocre with so few customers, but it was not good. How can it take 20 minutes to prepare two mixed drinks (at $11 and $14 apiece), on a slow night? but it did. Food, however, was very good, bordering on excellent. The candied bacon is simply spectacular! Most beef cuts were great (and most of the meat was beef), chicken was pretty good, pork was ok, and the lamb and pork ribs were really bad. We are giving it another try next month. If the service doesn't improve, we'll go to Texas de Brazil downtown.

This place was great! If you like unlimited premium cuts of meat make sure you try this place. They come by fast with the meat, however they come with the same meat due to being new location and not that many people there to eat. However when more people arrived the lamb chops, ribeye and etc was starting to come around more.

If you've never been to a churrascaria, you're missing out on a fine dining experience. Think BBQ, think buffet, think delicious! The pao de queijo is one of the best dinner rolls you'll ever have. It's a cheese infused tapioca flour roll. The picanha is my favorite meat that is carved off of the grilling skewers at your table. This place had about a dozen different cuts of beef, lamb, chicken, and pork.

The service was good, the atmosphere light and crisp, the food was endless.
