This is our third time at Fogo de Chao Austin downtown It is amazing from beginning to end! My husband made reservations for my B-Day and it turned out to be one of our most romantic meals this year. If you have never been here I recommend that you go on an empty stomach. We started with the valet and... More

Our experience here was so marvelous I have to give it a perfect rating! My family was coming to visit for Christmas, it was a total of 10 people. We wanted to enjoy our holiday without the fuss of cooking, so my husband and I decided to take everyone out. Now it's Christmas so we wanted to make it nice!... More

We came here on a business lunch a couple of months ago. I have to say, probably the best Brazilian steakhouse style restaurant I've been to. Typical style, where you can choose from a large assortment of vegetables, cold pasta, cold cuts etc. Flip the sign over to green and a huge choice of steak, chicken, lamb, other beef cuts.... More

This is a Brazilian Churascaria. If you are not familiar with how it works, they have a table with salad items to pick from along with some different beans. Then while you sit down, you have a round coaster-like indicator with green on one side, red on the other. When you want meat, you turn it to the green side,... More

Wanted a nice place for Christmas Eve dinner and since I'd heard good things we made a reservation here. The service was fantastic during the meal. I figure it's not fair to compare, but Texas de Brazil blows this place out of the water. Salad bar selection is small, and the meat was good but really only one selection worth... More

I simply love this place. The Service is 2nd to none. The managers are on the floor attending to every little detail. You can tell they take great pride in what they do at Fogo De Chow. I recommend everyone visit here

If you like steakhouses and especially Brazilian Steakhouses you will love Fogo de Chao. The salad bar and hot table are excellent with a great selection. They also provide the cheesy bread, fried polenta, fried plantain(banana) and mash potatos as a side dish. Then comes the array of grilled meats, ribeye, top sirloin, bottom sirloin, chicken, pork loin, spareribs, languisa... More

It's Christmas Eve in downtown Austin. We're just walking along the 3rd St. looking for a nice place to eat. We found this place which is just few blocks from our hotel. We waited for about five minutes and we did not have reservation. We were seated and our server was Jade who was friendly and helpful explained how the... More
