A word from Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Houston
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
  • "Muito bom, inclusive para lembrar do churrasco feito no Brasil, que depois se alguns dias fora vai nos dando muita saudade. Excelente comida, maitres e garçons muito educados. Único porém seria o custo, superior até às melhores casas no Brasil"

  • "It's gimmicky and fun if you've never experienced this type of restaurant. You'll get your money's worth if you plan to eat a lot (preferably meat). However, for the same price point, there are too many other great restaurants in Houston."

  • "One of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had everything was delicious, great atmosphere, Good service, I almost didn't want to leave. A little bit pricey tho but we'll worth it .For 2 adults expect to spend over $100."

  • "I decided to go at lunch and get the salad bar. It did not disappoint. marinated mushrooms. heart of palm, smoked salmon some of my favorites. they bring the hot items as well. I did not miss the meat, although I had had it dozens of times."

  • "Restaurant was filled with kids & babies. Noisy, hectic & way over-priced. I can spend $400 at a really nice steak house in Houston and have a much finer dining experience. I won't go back."

  • "Moved to Houston from NYC 5 years ago. Never been to Fogo's in the city. First experience in Houston was fabulous and will be going back for sure. I thought it may be a little more quiet but with all the waiters running around with unlimited meat I guess the noise would be expected. Overall loved the place."

  • "Have been going to place for years. This time will be my last- as good as the food is, the place is CRAWLING with kids?!?!? Like a Chuck E Cheese.... I don't understand how or why. Even when I checked in for my reservation, the hostess asked "is that 3 adults"? Spent 100 bucks a head for dinner with no drinks... don't know how people are taking their kids to such an expensive place. Screaming, running around, it was awful. With the number of Brazilian Steakhoues in Houston now- think I will look for something a bit quieter....."

  • "My wife and I hadn't been in about a year and it seems to have slipped in terms of quality and overall experience. We showed up right on time for our reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes because the hostess forgot to seat us! The atmosphere was loud and chaotic. The food was merely ok. Overall, I felt like we were in a more expensive version of a Golden Corral!! Not special at all. For $50+ per person, there are far better dining experiences around town. We probably won't be back any time soon!"

  • "We had early reservations so at first it wasn't very noisy. We got there early and waited for the rest of our party at the bar. Had a good drink and were able to transfer the tab to our dining bill. The salad bar was good once we flipped our cards to green the meat service was nonstop. There were a couple specific meats we had to ask for but they were promptly brought out. Every condiment we asked for they had, chimichurri, horseradish and mint jelly. For dessert they wrote happy anniversary on the plate and comped the dessert. Overall the service was super attentive without being obtrusive."

  • "The wait staff was attentive, helpful and brought out what we asked for. The salad bar will NOT disappoint; one of the best in the city! When the rib eye that was immediately available was cooked more well-done than we prefer, the gaucho asked if we could wait about 8 minutes. He then came out with a rib eye steak cooked exactly how we liked it, on it's our skewer, straight to our table for the first cut. There was a table with some unruly children next to us. not the restaurant's fault, but it does affect the evening out. My only complaint about the food would be, everything was a little over-salted."

  • "Our kids (6 &8) love coming here for the experience. The food is always great and the service is superb but this time the service was rather low and slow, from the waiter, not the food servers. Having been here I numerous occasions I know this is not typical by far but that was our experience this time."

  • "Ten of us dined here this past Saturday evening. As always, the food and wine were very good. Often times, the service was very slow whenever our coasters were turned and we needed meat. I only ate ribeye and it took 10 minuted after I requested. We stayed late but as soon as we paid, we never saw another server. We stuck around and chatted with our group but there were 2 pregnant ladies at our table and we were unable to get help for water after payment was submitted. If you want us to remember Fogo for our next Brazilian visit versus 1 of the many competitors, then be correct with your customers until they step out of your restaurant."

  • "We have been to this restaurant a few times and typically enjoy the food.More recently, we have been highly disappointed with the level of service. Sunday night the service was beyond terrible.In fact, I have never had poorer service at any other comparable restaurant. We were a party of seven and all of us were incredibly disappointed.We had to ask someone to call our waiter just to get something to drink. Same went for the food. In addition, our dirty plates were never removed from in front of us, and we all sat there with a stack of dirty plates until the check came.Not really pleasant when the price to eat there is not cheap. Needless to say, we will not be returning.There are other restaurants around town with the same concept."

  • "It's difficult to chose between the awesome salad bar and the incredible meats. Service is good and I rarely have to wait for anything. There's always someone glancing at your table to ensure you want for nothing. The house specialty, the garlic beef, and the Parmesan pork are my favorites here. The strawberry dessert is especially good. And of course, the bread is melt-in-your-mouth good! I try to make it here several times a year. It's wonderful and worth the price."

  • "Food, service and atmosphere were great. Worth the price if you go hungry. Light eaters probably won't appreciate the total experience. "

  • "Had reservations for 8:30 on a Saturday night and waited 20-25 minutes before calling it quits. Waiting around to be seated for that long defeats the whole purpose of reservations, and this place wasn't worth dealing with that. It was ridiculously crowded and loud, and you could tell service would continue to stink even if we decided to hang around longer until we were seated. We don't care to go back. There are better options in Houston."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Food was great. Service, not so much. There was wait time even with reservations. So busy you had to stand in line to check in. Foyer and bar so packed you couldn't move. Once we were seated, service was not good because the staff was clearly too busy to handle the crowds. Extremely loud. Never got drinks with dessert. Took 25 minutes to get a receipt to pay. "

  • "We brought our Dad here for his 56th birthday because he'd been talking about the place for so long. Let's just say everything he had heard about it was true, and they gave him a lovely dessert in honor of the occasion!"

  • "This is a once a year favorite spot where you come in and can't wait to turn on the green light and when you pay the bill you would love to start all over again, but the only problem is that your body says 'red light'!"

  • "This place cannot be beat for meat eaters in your group, but even the salad bar is fantastic. We go there a few times a year for celebration meals. My favorites are lamb, rib eye and ribs. Just try to stop before a belly ache!"

  • "We took our daughter here to celebrate college graduation and the food was outstanding. They have a new option of Grilled Chilean Sea Bass for the non-beef eater, me, so I was really happy to have that option...and I must say, it was the best I have EVER had! Definitely a memorable dining experience -- perfect for special occasions."

  • "My sister and I picked this place to bring my mom and the rest of our family to celebrate Mother's Day. My parents are big meat eaters so we thought this place was a good choice, since it is a steakhouse and what not. Anyways, the food did not disappoint! My mom absolutely loved everything. My favorite was the salad bar, if I had more room I would've gone back a second time. The service was alright, being a table of 7 I would imagine they would give us plenty of attention, but I guessed wrong. The waiter was there initially, but when it was time for the bill he was nowhere to be found. So we waited and waited. Finally it came and the bill was pricey, but it was expected. The included gratuity upset me but my mom was happy so no complaints."

  • "This is the first time in over 5 years since we have been to this place. The meat was over cooked and some pieces had lots of fat. We won't be going back. It's too expensive to try again ($51.50 each + drinks + tax + tip). It's not kid friendly. They say that kids under 6 eat free but the food is not kid friendly, no other kid options like chicken fingers or a burger and we got charged $3.00 for a kids milk. "

  • "We were late for our reservation and had to wait a few minutes to be seated. The restaurant was crowded and seemed a little tight. Trays were going over our heads which was a little uncomfortable. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I missed the black olives at the salad bar."
