All I can say is wow! This is a great place if you are a meat eater. The food is excellent! It is a little pricey, but well worth it if you are celebrating a significant event. I would recommend this to anyone!

Went to Fogo on Friday November 23rd. We had 22 people in our party and everybody had a wonderful time. The food was incredible. The Filet was fork tender. The lamb was perfectly prepared. The selection on the salad bar was immense.

The prices have gone up to $32.50 for lunch (which includes the amazing salad bar), but this is STILL my absolute favorite restaurant, hands down! Many places raise their prices and drop their quality or serving size, not Fogo.\r

Pros: $33-53 for all you can eat Fillet Mignon, lamb, etc. IMMEDIATELY! Great ambiance & service, haven't seen ill-behaved kids there

Cons: Parking, but Public Transportation is easily accessible via rtaChicago site. Not for kids who are not attended to when adults w/hot meat on giant skewers are delivering quickly.

.

The best by far. Only go here. The salad bar is huge, everything is fresh and of high quality. Mojitos and caiparinas are very good. They keep bringing the food no matter what you do. This place is a yearly tradition for me.

This is my favorite all time restaurant. The quality of the meat, salad bar and service is A1. It is pricey, but worth every penny. When I dine there, I feel as though I am a valued customer, anything you ask for is promptly given. They give all their customers movie star attention. The only thing is I am not sure how the pricing works for children. I see this restaurant more as adult oriented.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, good staff

We had been to the one in Houston. I was in Chicago for business traveling with a colleague that is from Brazil. He was very impressed. He said this was just like a traditional Brazilian steak house. The meats are all cooked to perfection and the salad bar has fresh top of the line items. I recommend calling ahead to check on availability because this is in downtown Chicago and is very popular.

We splurged and went to Fogo de Chao for our anniversary and we'll definately go back! I say "splurged" because it is pretty pricey, but the food was excellent and the salad bar was the longest I've ever seen with such a great variety on it. It was so cool how the gauchos came around offering the different cuts of meats. A word of advice - this place is not for dieters!

If you want to be transported to the excesses of meat and Brazil go to Fogo de Chao. It is the most reliable import since Gisele Bunchen. Succulent meat, great salad bar and gauchos. It is authentic and delivers both quantity and flavor.

I've eaten at few Brazilian steak houses from the farm lands in Indiana to a few of them in Texas. So far this branch of Fogo is the best. The salad bar is complete. Not all the fogo restaurants have the exact same offerings in the salad bar. The service is top notch. The decor and atmosphere is excellent. Weekends it gets a bit busy so make reservations.

If you want authentic Brazilian barbecue, this is the place. It serves all kinds of meat in vast quantities right at tableside - just like the Brazilian restaurants in Rio. All you have to do is flip a red-sided/green-sided card to get service. If the card is green side up, the servers will keep delivering red-hot slabs of meat until you gorged or manage to flip the card to the red side.

The salad bar is almost an afterthought after eating all that meat. But the salad bar is well-stocked with the freshest, plumpest vegetables and fruit and even sushi(?) around.

Lunch runs a flat $45; dinner about double that amount even though the menus are identical for both times. Great for business luncheons and X-mas parties.

Go for lunch because you'll pay half the price for essentially the same experience. The salad bar is in itself enough to satify a hearty appetite but why waste your time when there's more than 10 different meat selections? Plan on taking the afternoon off after a trip here.

PROS: All you can eat
CONS: Fixed price
