Love this concept for meat lovers in Houston!!!!!! Took the brother here for his 40th birthday and he fell in love!!!!! Great salad bar too. But the reason you come here is for the awsome cuts of meats brought to your table by flipping

My Wife & I celebrated our 49th anniversary here on 10/29/11. First time visit. Everything was excellent. Service topnotch. Almost all the meats were great. The exception was the sirloin - a bit tough. Lamb chops the best I have ever

If there were more stars I could use to rate this restaurant, I would. This place has excellent service and the food is undescribable. You have so many different cuts of meat that are marinated in only sea salt I believe. No steak sauce needed. The salad bar is always fresh and there are so many options there as well. I recommend you have a large breakfast, small lunch and then engorge yourself. Lunch is half price Mon-Fri so you can save and still get great food and excellent service.

if your mind doesn't make a squealing sound of excitement similar to the one above just at the mention of this restaurant, you're not a real meat lover! ;)
Fogo de Chao is a great restaurant, the staff is always super nice, the food is always amazing and the deserts even are really, really good. The salad bar got my wife sick one time, so i stick to the hot stuff, but man, there's plenty of it to choose from!
The top sirloin is one of my favorites but really folks you can't go wrong at this place. Check out Fogo de Chao i 100% guarantee: you will love it!

Fogo de Chao is an expensive place to eat, but is well worth the money. Their website describes their philosophy in detail, but it boils down to one point: unlimited meat. The meat is the best I've ever had, and there are lots of types of meat, and then different cuts of each animal available. They also have a large buffet table with cheeses, sausages and vegetables in the middle of the room, so be careful not to fill up there! It is a dressy place - men wearing at a minimum slacks and a dress shirt, and the women usually considerably more dressed up.

Fogo De Chao is great. I usually host a group of Russian delegates for my company once or twice a year. Every time we have taken international visitors to Fogo De Chao they have thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the different types of meat that Fogo De Chao serves. It's fun and the meat is very tender. The salad bar has a great selection for those who are vegetarian.
