    Took my girlfriend here for our2 year anniversary and she loved it! I was very impressed myself. The salad bar has endless options for everyone but don't get full on the salad! As soon as we were ready for the meat, we were bombarded with every cut of steak and chicken that you would dream of. Personally my favorite was the filet mignon. It melted in my mouth. Overall I would definitely come back. Well worth the money.

    amazing salad bar, carnivore heaven, they keep bringing food. Lots of service from different people. But I wouldn't call it personal. The initial server asked if it was our first time and we indicated it was. He said he would try to make it fun for us then. Rarely saw him again. He didn't tell us what the two sauces were on the table or the unusual bread or other dishes that were served or show us the more extensive description of meats on our table which we found at the end of the meal. Felt we were being rushed through as quick as possible. Some of the guys serving the meat were almost running. Most $ ever spent for 2 people to have dinner. But, I recommend you try it once and/or for a special occasion.

    Food was awesome. Salad bar was fresh, tasty with lots of unique choices. Servers were very attentive. My only complaint is the table for four was rather small for the four of us with our drink and water glasses, bread bowl, sides from the kitchen, etc. we had to constantly rearrange and kept bumping into each other's items. It left little room for the servers to place their skewers with meat. Above all, we had a delightful evening.

    The dinner was absolutely the best! The wait staff was always there but not overbearing. The food was plentiful and hot. We could not have asked for a better evening. The Opeinging and Oerations Manager from Corporate, Cesar Montesinos, was assisting the staff and what a great personality he has! Just a super evening with friends and customers.

    I've tried all the Brazilian steakhouses in Dallas and Fogo is the BEST, hands down. While all the others have meat and salad bars and Gauchos, I believe Fogo is the best because the meat seems to be of a higher quality and it's seasoned and prepared better than any of it's competitors.

    We have been to Fogo de Chao many times, however this time we thought tables were too close to each other and service was rushed. We waited for bread for at least 20 minutes. Other complimentary brazillian entrees didnt arrive later after we started eating. Comparing to Texas Brazil, their salad buffet and side items were weaker.

    Fofo de Chao is a favorite when I am visiting cities where they have a restaurant. The salad bar alone is worth the price of admission! Best tabouli I have ever eaten! It was a busy Saturday night, so a bit noisy, but still the food was just excellent, staff attentive and we had a great experience. I will eat there again.

    ...bar where I served myself. Our party of eight spent half the time trading 'worst restaurant experiences ever' stories since that's the sort of service we received at Fogo that evening. This is a place where prompt, unobtrusive but attentive service is what makes the event possible. When, instead, you need to crane your neck trying to signal anyone to please clear a plate, refill the water, provide eating utensils and, yes, please notice the green cards which means we would like some meat goes largely ignored it doesn't recommend the restaurant. We won't be coming back soon.

    Had been to this style restaurant in Brazil and was excited to find Fogo de Chao while in town for the weekend. Went with my wife, son and his fiancée. We had a wonderful time. The service great. If we wanted a specific meat, just mentioning it to one of the gaucho's was all it took. Next thing you knew, there it was. The wait staff was very responsive. They keep replenishing the cheese bread just so we'd have it warm. Will have to plan another trip to Plano just to go here!

    Server lacks professionalism. Maybe it was an unusually crowded night, but properly and respectfully picking up/placing down silverwares would not be a bad practice to work on. When asked for a specific meat to be brought by, he would just went back to his corner. Maybe he was just an outlier.

    Unquestionably the best Brazillian steakhouse in Dallas including bodacious salad bar! Service unparalleled. Although expensive, worth every penny. I go as often as I can afford since they opened and always consistent quality. I visited Baltimore location and it was just as great. Tried others in Dallas but they were just wannabes. can't wait to go back!

    My GF & I are huge fans of the Brazilian Steakhouse feel & are creating that experience as our yearly Anniversary dinner choice. We have visited other restaurants, which set a classy, romantic vibrance to them. Although many other reviews noted that was the case here, we unfortunately did not get that get that vibe. The loud ambiance & seemingly "dressed down" nature that was apparent took the romance out of dinner, but we still had a great time with each other as we always do. Seems like for this this restaurant in particular, It felt like sizzler with unlimited meat.

  • Fogo has lost a little magic
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 5/7/2014
    We have been Fogo de Chao fans since the day it opened in Dallas several years ago. We recently visited Fogo after a year absence and found it has lost some of its magic. The salad bar was still the best in town and the drinks were good, but the meat (once a highlight) had a couple of our favorite cuts that weren't the same quality as we always expect to receive. We even got seconds on the two that seemed a little "off" but the second cuts had the same issues. Other cuts were good, however. We also noted that the service wasn't as gracious as it was when the original family owned Fogo. Overall, still a good place to eat, but not the same as it was in its early years. Not sure it is still worth the price for a night out. So sad to say this!

    Our party of 6 arrived on time and we were seated in a section that was clearly set aside for large groups (there were 3 other much larger groups in our vicinity, which made the noise level almost unbearable). The salad bar was very good, as is typical for this chain. The rodizio service felt somewhat hurried, almost too hurried. This Fogo is much smaller than the usual ones, and noisier.

    While the food certainly wasn't bad and service was ok, this place has changed seriously in ambience and class since I was last here ten years ago. Same old misty carpwt looks like it has never been changed, no updates at all to the restaurant and sadly was a very down markwt feeling. The food was alright maybe it was an off night. Servers didn't even seem to pay any attention to the green/red coaster system and the. When one of us at our table of two accepted some meat thwy would take off before asking if the second diner wanted any. This happened several times over the course of dinner. Two of the wines we requested were out. Just a big change over what used to be a fancy dining spot.

    My wife and I decided to have Easter brunch here this year after a very bad experience a couple of years ago. The only issue we had with our food was that a good portion of the beef servings were tough, fatty and could not be eaten. The final serving was a filet which we both felt was the best. Ironic they serve the best for last. Coincidence or purposeful. The biggest irritation is that when asked how everything was during our dining, we voiced concerns and told them it would be nice if they communicated the problem to management. No response! A deer-in-the-headlights! Overall, the service and atmosphere is appealing.

    My wife decided to celebrate her Birthday at her favorite restaurant, the service from the beginning was excellent, the food was varied and very well presented, the portions excellent, the waiters friendly and courteous, the ambience as usual was energetic, but not noisy, allowing for easy conversation. The restaurant provided a complimentary dessert, with a handwritten note by the chef, celebrating my wife's birthday. This restaurant will continue to be our favorite venue for all celebrations, big or small.

    Simply the BEST Brazilian steakhouse in Dallas. This was the first Fogo in the US and it is the restaurant where they train many of the people who go on to manage other Fogos around the country. I have tried most of the Brazilian steakhouses in Dallas and Fogo has the highest quality meat and it is prepared with more care. Each type of meat is prepared by a specific Gaucho who learns how to cook that cut.

    Our son-in-law was dying to try this place, and he really enjoyed it! We probably won't do it again though, as it is too pricey. Also, the wait staff watches every move you make to the point of distraction. If you want to have a somewhat relaxing dinner, wait until they come around with all the meat selections you'd like to sample, then turn your coaster over to red so you won't keep getting interrupted!
