Where to begin!? So I was here last night with my best friend and everything was outstanding!!!! Out brilliant server was the infamous CHRIS! Let me give you the break down on this guy, he's been here since day one! He's just the right amount of personable and professional, it's not wonder he's waited on the bush family and the... More

We had been talking about trying Fogo de Chao for a couple of years and finally had occasion to go. It is a pretty unique experience. Very pleasant staff. And you will seemingly end up meeting them all! (Just because of how the "main courses" are brought to you. Really nice salad bar with interesting and fresh selections. Clean and... More

Good service. The meat was just OK. It wasn't top notch or seasoned spectacularly. So we were a little disappointed actually. you can fill up fast at a place like this, and we never got to experience many of the selections

Service was not what we have experienced at other locations. They were also out of many selections they usually offer. Not sure we will return to this location on our next trip.

I wish I remembered our server's name. He was very nice and recommended drinks well. Even though I liked the salad bar at Brazazz better, this place is awesome. It was a quick walk from the Magnificent Mile...Ontario and Michigan. Not a bad price for a full buffet and all you can eat meat for under $40. We arrived to... More

Aa all the other Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouses around the U.S., the restaurant is an excellent value for the money you'll pay !! Meat served there is really great and service efficient. The only negative point might be the noise...

We have eaten here twice for my husband's Birthday. The food is amazing and you won't go away hungry! The staff is also very friendly and attentive. Make reservations ahead of time and set aside money or sign up for their email list to get coupons as it is about $50 per person for dinner.

Came to this spot after my sister and brother in law raved about their experience at the other location. A perfect spot to escape the cold from. At the center you will find a salad bar with options to please everyone. Prepared salads, smoked salmon, prosciutto, plenty of veggies, cheese... I would have been content just eating from the bar.... More

Great food! I have been to a few locations and all have the same quality meats. Love the side dishes that come with the meal. Bananas are a good palate cleanser.
