Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Austin
Lives up to the reputationFogo has a reputation for being a great place to eat. And it lives up to its billing. I've been to a similar restaurant before in NY and this one beats it hands down.
Come to this place with your appetite, the salad bar alone could fill you up. A good variety of salads on the bar. Love the pao de queijo, I wish I could take it home with me. Would love to bring a plastic sack and sneak them away for later.
The selections of meats was great. My faves were the chorizo, picanha, and the fraldinha.
Can't wait though to compare Fogo to other churrascaria in the area, to see which is the best.
Make sure to make your reservations. And plan to valet, the construction around downtown is horrible.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome service staff, average foodWe are "frequent fliers" with the Brazilian Steakhouses... This trip to Fogo de Chao wasn't our most remarkable experience. We had reservations for 5 (2 toddlers included) as a Mother's Day treat. Our reservation was at 4:30. We arrived and were pleasantly surprised to find a half empty restaurant! The hostess seated us immediately and we began with their usually robust salad bar!! It was okay... As we transitioned to the meats, we noticed that several were over-cooked and/or under seasoned!! The service staff was overly attentive the entire time and ensured that every request was met. In the end, we go for the meats which are supposed to be the "stars" of the experience... We weren't impressed this trip!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFdC is always a good spotFdC is always a good spot for race weekend dining!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was incredible asThe food was incredible as always, the staff awesome and very helpful and the overall experience was WAY two thumbs up!!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, Great serviceAs a couple my husband and I went for ARW and it was a very pleasant first experience.The service was amazing.

The service is always good especially with the long term staff4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved my first FOGO experience.I loved my first FOGO experience. I've been to Dallas Texas De Brazil and I must agree with the other reviews, there's not much difference in the meat from the two. Though, I liked Fogo's house meat better. I must say, Texas De Brazil wins on salad bar, but just barely. I REALLY liked their fried bananas (as a side they give you) more than anything else. Other than that, it's also a tad bit cheaper, but I loved Fogo's atmosphere and service a bit more.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was spectacular,The food was spectacular, service was the best I've experienced at any restaurant, and I left so full, I thought I would burst! The salad bar was great and the all you can eat meat was just dreamy. My mouth is watering just thinking about all the foods we ate! It is kind of pricey, but worth it to go during Austin Restaurant Week! Hope I get to go back soon!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFogo's was a great experience.Fogo's was a great experience.
