A word from Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Boston
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.

  • "This is definitely a unique restaurant. Pace yourself or you will fill up too fast. So much on the salad bar, and then comes all the different meats with sides dishes. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion."

  • "Although the restaurant is advertised as a meat place, they have a wonderful help yourself buffet salad bar with excellent smoked salmon, jamon serrano, and manchego. The eat as much as you want meat keeps coming to your table on skewers as long as your disc shows green. To stop turn it over to red. The meats include excellent cuts of beef, lamb chops, chicken and pork sausages and many others. Lunch time is a cheaper but avoid breakfast if you go."

  • "We went to Fogo for my husbands 30th birthday and had a great time. Friendly staff and amazing food. The meal was delicious. The only downside is that the meal goes by at a fast pace because the staff keeps coming by with meat options and we ate too quickly. This was out fault!"

  • "We went here for a birthday party and were pleasantly surprised. We were seated promptly and our service all night was spectacular. Though not all of the meats were notable, the ability to try such a variety was great and the ones that were good we couldn't get enough. For those members of our group who opted for the salad bar only.. WOW what a surprise. The salad bar was more than enough food with dishes ranging from your regular salad ingredients, pasta salads, smoked salmon, rice & beans, coconut haddock just to name a few. Needless to say everyone in our group left highly satisfied and not needing to eat for days!"

  • "We met my nephew for dinner here mostly for location. The salad bar is complete and filled with unusual options. We had to be very vigilant with the green card. They are very efficient at adding to your plate. The meats are wonderful and it is very easy to get a little over the top."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "The food is excellent. The salad bar is excellent. You could eat like a king from the salad bar alone. The salad bar includes salmon, bacon, and other meats as well. Be careful not to fill up to much as you won't have room for the main courses. All you can eat steak. The steaks are really good and you can have a slice anyway you want it. Fantastic for a group of people but I prefer a smaller darker style restaurant for a date spot. This is wide open like a food court."

  • "I joined my husband for lunch at Fogo de Chao and both the food and service were terrific. The salad bar is wonderful. It's stocked with a large variety of food that's top notch. But, don't fill up on the salad bar! Table service is delicious too. The staff is well trained and very attentive. Reservations are helpful for lunch, but if you go early without one, you may not have to wait. Thank you Fogo de Chao for a wonderful lunch."

  • "Fogo de Chao's is definitely a dining experience; followed by good food. As soon as you walk in you can get a mild sense of the atmosphere. Once you start walking to get seated, you are presented with the full display of what this restaurant is. Many people moving to provide excellent service. I was a little overwhelmed at first but got used to it once I flipped my card over. The meat was great! I wish there was a dipping sauce or something but flavor was really good. The sides were just enough and once you ran out they continue to re-fill. The drinks are superb and strong. Overall I liked it. Definitely something to check off my list of restaurants to try!"

  • "Everyone in this restaurant is so nice. They bring the meat to the table and it's so delicious. They giving me just the way you want it. Their salad bar is amazing. We been to this restaurant about 10 times and just love it. Everyone should go!!!!!!?"

  • "The food was excellent. The salad bar had a very nice selection of salads, cheeses, cold meats, as well as some fish selections. My wife wasn't feeling up for the meat portion of the meal, so just stuck with the salad bar and was pleased with the choices available. I went for the full monty, and was not disappointed. The non-stop offerings were all politely presented by very attentive chefs. Servings of any individual selection were not too large, allowing you to try as many different offerings as possible. That said, they'll keep it coming until you say 'enough'. The meat is prepared over open flame and seasoned only with salt. Some reviews have indicated their steaks were too salty. I didn't find that to be the case."

  • "I never thought I would say this but I think this just too much meat and food in general. Tasted amazing and the service was the best I've had in a while."

  • "Enjoyed the full experience; food was fatty but flavorful and the overall atmosphere was very fun. Would probably not go back for a few months, but that's likely only to have my arteries recover."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Save your money and go find either a real churrascuria or a real high-end restaurant. This is neither. These people have taken all the joy, flavor and funk out and inflated the real-estate, decor and cost. We spent (literally) $666 for a noisy, corporate, soul-less, and flavor-wise indifferent dinner for 6. The best part by far - was that we did manage to find a good bottle on wine on the list. Did it without any guidance from the wait-staff. Not sure if they had a sommelier on the staff, but none visited with us or was even mentioned, and the waitstaff we encountered (nice enough kids) were clueless about wine. On the bright side, the bill did automatically include a $95 tip so I guess actual knowledge and service weren't required."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I've been to Fogo de Chao in Sao Paulo and in Rio and this one is a far cry from its Brazilian counterparts, more like an "Epcot Theme Park" version. The selection of meats and their preparation is acceptable, but nothing to write home about. Servers are aloof, they may come five times in one minute, disappear for half an hour afterwards, bring the wrong drink, apologize, bring another wrong drink. And so on. If you like Churrascaria, there are better places (and much cheaper) in greater Boston. I had great hopes, but I won't go back."

  • "If you love meat , it's the place to go. The meats are tasty and well seasoned cooked the way you like. Most impressed by the service though. Friendly and energetic staff. They never miss a beat. Their attention is on you! Allef our waiter was a gem... He made it even more special. We had a great time."

  • "Fogo offers excellent meats and a great selection. The service was excellent and the experience was overall great!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We went mainly for the unique experience of waiters personally shaving meats for you. Our expectations for food weren't 5-star but for the menu price we hoped it'd be pretty good tasting. Pros: All-you-can-eat salad bar was a great start. The servers were personable and enthusiastic. Cons: A few of the meats were tasty but most were far too salty (to the point that they were inedible). Also - service was chaotic and it took over 45 minutes to receive and pay our bill. Summary: All-in-all, it was an OK night. We left full and had fun. It wasn't a night of complete regret but we had higher expectations given what we paid. Overall I'd call it a "so-so" experience and something we can now say we've done once but won't be rushing to do again."

  • "Had the pleasure of dining here recently, and loved it. I've been to other Brazilian steakhouses, so I knew what to expect food-wise and it did not disappoint. The service in all aspects was very good, although when flipping the card to green, it was a little overwhelming, we had guys with skewers of meat waiting to dispense their goods. The ambience of the room is great - my party was there for over 3 hours and we never felt rushed. I would recommend and I will return."

  • "I am not a big meat eater but I enjoyed the many selections. You get full very quickly! I particularly loved the the lamb chops, my mouth is watering now at the thought of them! The cost is fair considering how much meat you can consume. Not an intimate environment and mostly it's about eating and very little talking!"

  • "Wonderful meal at Fogo de Chao.We were a party of 6, with a reservation at 7:30p.The waiting area was packed and so was the bar. I was hearing 2+ hour waits without a reservation. We were seated a few minutes after our arrival. The waitress immediately came to our table to settle us in and get our drink orders. The first course is the salad bar and it was delicious. Nice assortment of cheeses, salmon, cold salads, lettuce and other salad fixings. Once done with our salads, we turned over our discs to green and the meats started coming. Wow. If you like beef, lamb, pork ribs - this place is for you! You can just get the salad bar if you have someone who doesn't eat meat (we did) but just make sure you tell your server ahead of time."

  • "If you want to have a good and traditional brazilian steak go to this restaurant. The meat doen`t stop to come. I have to turn my card to red because I couldn`t have more meat in my plate.... hahahahaha. Very beautiful place. I would come back more often if it would be less expensive. But it worthed a lot for a very special occasion."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Then this is a good choice. In addition to its salad bar (which is good, but has a surprising lack of greens), the meat just keeps coming. Be sure to be selective and insist on the type and cut you prefer. They will come back with what you want. One word of caution: your bill will rise quickly due to the price of drinks, and they are very adept at keeping those coming as well."
