I have come here many times and had excellent service but yesterday it wasn't the same. I am not sure if they were overwhelmed because they were busy but it was weird. Food is excellent as always but once you get use to great service it's hard to get use to anything else.

This place was fantastic. Went to dinner here and from the moment we walked in were treated like royalty. The waiter fully explains what you are in for and how to ask for more skewers of food. The meats were wonderfully cooked. The vegetables were flavorful and tasty. It was a truly amazing experience.

I have had the good fortune to eat a few Fogo steakhouses, but this one is my favorite. If you have never had the chance, save up some cash and give it a try. The salad bar is superb and they don't skimp on your choices either... even providing proscuito as a choice. The meats are brought around to your... More

From the time we were greeted by Katerina, seated by Jade, and served by Kate, we felt like we were part of a very friendly family. The food was first class, with unending choices of fresh veggies, cheeses, and salad fixings to start. Then, savory meat options began to aromatically circulate through the room. A word to the wise, take... More

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
