A word from Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Austin
Fogo de Chão® (fo-go dèe shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, Fogo® began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service.

We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My son (20 yo) wanted to go to Fogo de Chao. Great choice. Good meats and the red snapper for my wife was very good. Excellent salad bar. Staff very attentive. Relatively quiet on a Monday night, suspect can get quite loud on a busy night."

  • "This is a "must go" for anyone who visits Austin. It is the ultimate all you can eat restaurant. My only regret is that I didn't go more hungry. We can't wait to go again!!! The service was also great!!"

  • "The food and service were outstanding! The noise level was too loud. It was hard to have a conversation with the people at my table without talking really loud to each other."

  • "I guess I was spoiled by their competitor up north... parking is difficult and expensive downtown, and I thought I would receive a free birthday dessert but I didn't. Overall very tasty though."

  • "We go to this particular Fogo 2-3 times/ yr for family birthdays. Food this visit much better than the last time. Went early and some staff seemed new and not as attentive as usual bit the head waiter made up for the deficiencies. Expanded dessert menu was Plus. Will deg be back for more."

  • "Food is great and it was very busy. Unfortunately, the service isn't as good as it used to be. I have to wave someone down more than 3 or 4 times to get drink, food and checks.. which never happened in the past. "

  • "Being that it was the kick off of week 2 of restaurant week here in Austin, I had gathered a group of 8 friends to attend dinner. The food was delicious and never ending meat being carved from a metal skewer right on your plate couldn't have been any better. I cannot wait to return and dine again!"

  • "We took the family to Fogo to celebrate our son's graduation from University of Texas. We all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The salad bar is a great meal on its own. Add in all the super cuts of meat and the fantastic service. We had a very good time. Only complaint is with the slow service at the valet parking outside. "

  • "This was a lot of fun, about $50 a person without drinks, I went on a first date there, I saw prom kids there, lots of family gatherings. Tasty, I loved the salad bar personally. Good location so you can go downtown afterwards for drinks or to cathch a show."

  • "We went to fogo de chão after a long day of moving and it hit the spot. The service and food were great-- and it's all you can eat so bring your appetite! Basically a meat lovers fantasy. Will definitely return!"

  • "....until I get to the salad bar then I want to eat all the perfectly presented items! Then when you start the meat train they bring you the sides. We never touch the mashed potatoes, I kinda wish they offered another starch in its place. "

  • "My wife is from Brasil (yes, with an "s" not a "z":look it up.) and we have eaten at several Fogo de Chaos in Brasil. Huge difference! This one tries but sadly falls short. The ones in Brasil are exceptional. More variety of meats, a salad bar to die for, incredible brasilian desserts, and the service is 5 star rated. In Brasil, I can bring 6 people for what I paid for 2. So, it's not horrible or outstanding. If you are in Dallas, go to Rafain's, you will be impressed. More variety of meats, great flavor, desserts included and "slightly" lower price vs. Fogo. Will not return here. We will continue to patron Sao Paulo's by U.T because of their feijoada. Great food and reasonable $ for my wife's liking. "

  • "I love eating at Brazilian Steak Houses when I visit cities. I've always had great experiences. But this particular night, families with kids (I'm talking toddlers and infants) showed up to ruin a delicious dinner with crying, screaming, running around the restaurant and throwing fits of temper. The parents made no attempt to control their children and the servers just worked around them. Too much money spent on a lousy evening. Management needs to address this issue in some way. Build a quiet room to stick families in. Tell them to go to McDonald's."

  • "Fogo de Chao was our first choice for our Easter Brunch. At the time of our reservation, the restaurant had a decent crowd but we didnt feel e smothered by everyone. We have been to some restaurants during other holidays and it appeared they packed as many tables (and people) in as they could. The food preparation and customer service was top notch. The house special sirloin was our favorite and the options on the salad bar were tempting but be careful......you'll want to save some room for the entree's!"

  • "If your feeling fat, You do not have to order the whole meat deal, just order the salad bar which is Hands down the best in Austin. Healthy, fresh, super high quality. Worth every penny. "

  • "This pace is great! We ate here for out two year anniversary and we had top of the line service and delicious, tender meats that exceeded our expectations. 3 words. Lamb. Lamb. Lamb!!!"

  • "The food was very appetizing and the ambiance was very welcoming, recommend for any special occasion. The service was AMAZING!"

  • "The staff seemed overwhelmed on the night we were there. It took forever to get our table, and the host never checked on with us. I had called the restaurant earlier to ask if we could push the reservation back fifteen minutes and I was told No. Well considering they didn't seat us until almost seven thirty... I'm puzzled by the denial of my request. The place was so packed that you were like cattle going around the salad bar. Our primary waiter was great, but I can't recall his name This was our second, and probably last time. The price tag is just too hefty. I can't eat $60 worth of meat, I'm not sure anyone I know can. Considering the loudness and lack of intimacy I can't see how spending that much is justified."

  • "Fogo never fails to please. Took two newbies along this trip and they're hooked."

  • "Great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, which we did. The food is great, the service excellent, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The wait staff was a very doting crew and worked as a team so you didn't have to wait for one server to help you. It's a bit pricey but well worth it."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We tasted most of the meats on the menu. A large variety were very chewy and contained some gristle. We have enjoyed Fogo many times before . This experience was good but not at the level we have enjoyed in Houston and Dallas."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Our son wanted to celebrate his 21st birthday by having us take him here. None of us had been to a Fogo de Chao before. We had a wonderful experience. The staff was fantastically friendly and helpful. The salad bar was fresh and delicious and healthy. The meats were superb. Very impressed."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "I would go back for the just the salad bar--never been to one so filled w/ cheeses, salmon, breads. And the meat served to table, well, my goodness! The ribs and steak-just wow!"

  • "Could not have been more pleased with the total experience!!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "All the meats were very enjoyable. The service left something to be desired. Did not see my head waiter after an initial visit. Had to flag down a waiter to ask for the check."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Some of the reviews said that the service and the salad bar werent that great but I disagree. I was a little hesitant because of the price but thought the whole experience was great! My friend had a salad only and thought that was really expensive. This place was a lot nicer than I expected. We will be back!"

  • "We went here to celebrate my 40th birthday, and I can't imagine a better choice. The salad bar alone could've been a full meal, but we saved plenty of room for the meet storm which followed. Nicely done Fogo de Chao. The waitstaff was super friendly, and the drinks from the bar were fantastic. Not sure how to spell it, but the Caipirinha (The national drink of Brazil) is fantastic"

  • "If you are looking for a different type of dining experience, you'll find it here! Begin with the salad bar, which is laden with wonderfully fresh, beautifully presented choices that range from your basic salad offerings to smoked salmon and a variety of hot appetizers. Then, flip over that thing that looks like a coaster at your place from red to green, and let the procession of meats begin! Steaks, lamb, chicken, sausage...you choose whatever you like, as much as you like, as your servers come by with hunks of meat on skewers that they will slice to your liking (rare? well done?) while you grab with your tongs and pull the tasty morsel onto your plate. When you're ready for a break, simply turn your coaster back to red (stop!). Loved it!"

  • "I was surprised to find that the quality and taste of the meat at the Austin location was very different from that at the Addison Texas location. The meat was not as well seasoned and some of it was actually dry. I've never had that experience at Fogo in Addison. The service was good overall and the manager did check in with us on several occasions and make sure that someone came over with the meats that we wanted. Two areas of service that were surprising to me: 1. I had to ask for the house special before it came buy. 2. One of the servers promised to bring me back a certain cut cooked to my liking but never returned. 3. Sausage never came around to our table. If I'm in Austin again for dinner, I wont come back to this location."

  • "The waiter never came by , I asked for coffee and he went on to have a Conversation for about 15 mins with the table next to us. I asked for the check and another 20 mins went by and when I finally saw him He says " they are fixing your Chech, there was a problem or something like that," Then another 10 mins one of the waitresses comes and says " Did someone come by to ask you about your complimentary dessert?" And we were like " no," then she proceeds to say oh ok well here is your check with a comp dessert on it But just ignore that ..., wow! Nice , right ?"
