I was a part of a group, and so maybe they don't allocate enough staff for groups. The salad bar was ok, and the meats were bland. Also, the poor guys they had working our event seemed horribly rushed and slightly irritable - not at us, but maybe at their workload. The one high point was the carmelized pineapple dessert,...

I'm giving this wonderful establishment a five star review because their service was spectacular! If you love meat you will be in heaven. If you only eat fish, not to worry, you will still be impressed! If you don't eat meat the salad bar and sides are divine! Last night I wanted to treat my manager to the Fogo de... More

My boyfriend and I dined at Fogo de Chao with some of our closest friends. It’s been quite some time since my last visit to a Brazilian steak house, but I did know to show up hungry. I arrived first and was warmly greeted by the hostess; she kindly confirmed our reservations and ensured I was served a cocktail of... More

This is the second time I've been at this location (1 yr. ago) and the service is still so-so. The salada bar has very few items. It took over 20 mins to receive my key-lime pie and the the coffe was warm :-(

Excellent salad bar. Cured meats (salami and prosciutto), salmon, soup, cheeses and of course, salad...all for $15. All excellent and flavorful. Service was excellent. Parking stinks. There is a valet service for $10.

This was our first time at a Fogo de Chao. After our great experience here in Austin we will try others. The salad/vegetable tabled had many selections to choose from and all were very good. The hot sides of bean, rice or sauteed mushrooms were also very good. But the real experience is as they bring the skewers of many... More

We were in town for a conference and Fogo De Chao is located quite close to the convention center. We walked there after watching the bats come out from under the bridge. The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious, and the wait staff was attentive and entertaining. I recommend you try the caipirinha drink.

The smell when you walk in tells you right away you have chosen wisely. The atmosphere is cool and comfortable. Great wine and drink selections. The salad bar is the hidden gem. I don't think there is a better one anywhere. Then come the meats. They are brought to your table and hand carved and you eat until you pass... More

I'd never been here before and friends told me if you like meat and are hungry this is the ticket. Mmmm let's check.... They have a big salad bar with a few interesting things but nothing to write home about and actually missing a few surprising things....cottage cheese has been part of every salad bar in my life since birth....
