First visit to the Chicago location left us disappointed. While the quantity of meats was as expected the Quality was not. The meats were not good- filet was small, over cooked and fatty. Other meats were dry. If you are looking to eat a lot this may be a good option but in a city with great steakhouses, I would... More

This place is the ultimate indulgence. Come hungry and don't miss out on the sides. The large salad bar has some of the best options! The meat and waitstaff was exactly was we needed.

I lived in Brazil for 3 years, and Fogo do Chao is good in South America as it is in Chicago or NY. Very nice location. Good cocktails Delicious food. Big salad bar. It is not the place to have a romantic private dinner, because the " rodizio" type of serving can be a little annoying if you're looking for... More

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Day. The food was great, but the service was a little unorganized. They had people with portable bars selling shots/drinks. I had a cachaca and it was awesome!!! The drinks were fantastic! My complaint is we were charged for drinks that weren't ours and when we pointed out the mistake, they said... More

We have eaten at the Fogo de Chao in the suburbs, I was disappointed with the Chicago location. We had reservations, arrived 10 minutes early, however were seated 35 minutes after our reservation. When we inquired with the hostess, she would not make eye contact and gave vague answers. Our wait staff were great, timely, courteous. We love the selection... More

Don't bother with the salad bar, or the potatoes, polenta or plantains they bring to the table. You're here for the meat...the glorious meat. The service was great, and the meat was better. The ambiance was really relaxed and nice. It is a little pricey, but worth it. It was a great dinner.

We went here for Valentine's dinner. We were seated on time with our reservation. Wait staff was friendly, however, I think we had a table in a bad location because the meat carvers rarely walked past our table. Food was good and the pineapple for dessert was delicious!

They will keep feeding you and feeding you until your belt bursts. Not recommended for international tourists, only Midwestern tourists that can eat 5 pounds of meat in a single sitting.

My husband takes his staff and our family to Fogo for a Christmas celebration every year. His staff asks to go there even with all of the places we could go in Chicago. The salad bar is phenomenal! Then comes the meats! They are so tasty! Desserts are great as well.
