Fogo offers guests a wide variety of simply seasoned meats, that are carefully fire-roasted to expose their natural flavors, including the house specialty picanha sirloin, filet mignon, ribeye, and lamb chops to name a few.

I had a great time at Fogo De Chao yesterday, great way to start our Saturday. I've always heard good things about the Mpls location so we gave it a try and loved it! The city was beautiful and lively. The parking was surprisingly easy, a wonderful valet service took great care of us. The decor and vibe of the restaurant was perfect, fun and full of happy people. Seems like the place been renovated, it looks awesome. The staff is so nice, friendly, and welcoming, Minnesota nice at its finest! The drinks we started with were well made by a great bartender, I believe his name was Kevin. Brazilian national drink was very fresh, can't remember the name tho. We were seated quickly by smiling hostesses. The waitstaff all work as a team, so you get plenty of attention and there is always someone nearby if you need anything. They bring awesome sides, sweet fried bananas and savory garlic mashed potatoes. The cheese rolls are hot and delicious! The salad bar is very good with lots of international choices. Big attention to the sweet peppers from South Africa, super tasty. The meat options were an absolute treat, served table side and each slice more delicious than the last. A particular favorite was the bacon wrapped filet of beef, it was rich and juicy! Picanha and ribeye as well, always a good option, super succulent. I had an ice cream treat for dessert that was so refreshing! It was called strawberry cream, it cleanses the pallet and aids in digestion and was absolutely delightful! We had an extremely good experience at Fogo Mpls for dinner, I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family, and anyone who loves a great dining experience!!! Coming back in December for company party because you guys rock.

We went there again for dinner on a Saturday around 5 pm without reservation, were asked if we were OK to sit in the bar area, the service would be the same as other area, otherwise would be 2 hours waiting, so we sat in the bar area. The servers were very attentive and polite, served meat whenever green side of the card was facing up, filled water regularly. They even replaced cheese bread with warm ones. People there were so friendly, working hard to make their customer happy.

The food was great and they kept it coming. The salad bar was good. Our reservation was towards the end of the day so we were warned that the salad bar was closing. That was fine. We were stuffed and ready for the tab. However, all the staff disappeared and came out to fill their own to-go boxes from the salad bar before tearing it down. We waited an extra 20-30 minutes for our tab while they filled up.
Here’s a hint: take the food to the BOH and THEN fill up your to go boxes. It’s so tacky to do this in front of the guests.

Fogo is in one word amazeballs. The food is all cooked to perfection and the taste is on point. Their salad bar is immense, but take my suggestion and skip it in favor of the meats!
