A word from Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Philadelphia
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
  • "I took my daughter and her boyfriend to celebrate the young man's 21st birthday. It was a perfect choice for the occasion. We found the service to be excellent, attentive and helpful. The salad bar was wonderful; clean, fresh, varied offerings. Guests are sometimes advised to neglect the salad bar in favor of the meats, but I found that the meat was so rich that the salad bar was a welcome respite. The meats were varied and came at a quick clip. You need to pace yourself. They were good but a bit salty. For the right crowd, this place is a winner. I would actually consider returning at lunch for just the salad bar."

  • "A must just for the experience of dining at a brazilian steakhouse. Skip the salad bar, although extensive; and save yourself for the impressive array of meats carved table side. Must be a true carnivor to appreciate this type of dining."

  • "My family frequents this restaurant. We love the food and the service. We have been to other Fogo's around the US and this one sticks out for service, it's the best."

  • "Group of 4. Tried 12 of the 17 menu offerings. Pace yourself or you'll burst in 10 minutes. The salad bar is amazing but don't get sucked in. You came here for meat...and there is plenty. The servers are pros! And they are attentive. Slow down and chew your food. No one is rushing you out the door. Get another wine/beer/cocktail. The filet and rib eye were our favorite selections. I had leg of lamb and lamp chops by myself. They were both perfect. Dessert-creme brulee. Don't hestitate, get it. Great spot for a larger party. Everybody will have a great time It's a fixed price. Drinks and dessert extra, but fairly priced"

  • "Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse is excellent. Combining the quality off food and service of higher end resturaunts, with the accesibilty of less formal resturaunts, Fogo de Chao really shines. The food is absoulutly wonderful, the only advice I might give is to go light on the salad bar and be sure to really enjoy the meat!"

  • "I have eaten at other Fogos around country, this one is subpar. Meats were poorly seasoned, lamb was poorly cooked and of a substandard grade. Service staff was poor. Had to wait 20 minutes from clearing table to get bill. Asked three different people before getting up to is manager. Probably won't return here."

  • "This is a great place when you want to get your carnivore on. The food is wonderful, the wine selection is magnificent and they can help you do the perfect pairing. The service was great and we didn't go without food in our plate for very long at all. The Papaya cream dessert helped us digest all the protein and the after dinner ice wine was a sweet finish to this gastronomic delight. Oh yeah, the salad bar is one of the best in the city even though I refuse to waste stomach room on vegetation. Go to Fogo when you want a hearty, delicious meal or when your protein intake has been running low."

  • "The limeaid is fantastic. Great meal, but if I had to choose, I would go to a Texas de Brasil instead; they have a better salad bar and hot bar."

  • "The service from the time we walked into the door until the moment we left was superb. The entire staff works as a team and is very efficient and polite. The salad bar is full of fresh vegetables, variety of salads, imported cheeses, scalloped potatoes and much, much more. After finishing up with the salad bar the servers bring out tons of different style meats cooked to perfection. Personal favorite in our group was the house Fogo special. We also highly recommend the limeade! It was so refreshing! All in all this is a fun, unique dining experience that you too should enjoy!"

  • "My party had a reservation on Tuesday, June 17th. It was to be a special day for my son's high school graduation. Unfortunately, we were unable to enjoy any of the food other than the salad bar since the restaurant was evacuated due to an accumulation of smoke in the kitchen. The wait and support staff were extremely helpful to those hungry patrons waiting outside in hopes of returning inside. We were all given a complementary lunch/dinner for the inconvenience. We will definitely be returning. Thank you."

  • "We went here to celebrate my husband for Father's Day. We were a group of 8 with 2 children. Everything was good, I opted to eat only the filet mignon. Out of all of the choices of meat they offer, I liked the lamb chops and filet mignon with and without bacon. They have a hot bar and a great salad bar as well."

  • "The food was EXCELLENT, the service was outstanding, everyone was very friendly and exceptionally helpful. Fogo de Chao is a great place for a meal, especially if you like a wide variety of choices. One of the best salad bars in the business. Go hungry if you choose this restaurant, you're cheating yourself if you don't !!!"

  • "Spoiler alert: this is not a find dining experience. More about loading up on food until you burst. Start with the salad bar. Not a meat eater,there is an abundance of items to satisfy for your meatless meal. Nothing extraordinary; food was fresh and good. The meat service, my husband said, made him feel rushed, agitated and uncomfortable even though he had his dinning chip on "stop." The turmoil in the room is palpable as the gauchos flit around slicing off meat offerings from their skewers. Fogo is good for anyone who wants to experience a unique meal. Final note, my husband said, the meat was fatty, tough and salty."

  • "On a busy Friday night we met friends in this busy restaurant to catch up over good food. The "salad bar" was beautiful as usual with greens and veggies, plus smoked salmon, cheeses and olives. Our friends really enjoyed the variety. The meat delivered to the table was also quite good. I do wish more chicken had made it's way to our table. I was looking for that again and it never came around. We had a hard time understanding the waiters when they were describing the cuts of meat on the skewers. It was very noisy. As a party of 4, we were seated between 2 large and noisy parties. I wish I had asked for a different table. My chair was bumped at least 2 dozen times by the waitstaff during our meal. Not comfortable."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Overall, the visit was good. Some of the meat this time was too salty and a little overcooked. It tasted as if someone just sprinkled salt over some of the meat. I think this is something that should not be done. Customers should have the choice to add salt if they would like to do so. I have never had this experience in the past when visiting this restaurant. The service was great and very attentative. I usually visit during the dinner hours, but I will probably visit during the lunch hours in the future. It was more relaxing, quiet and the workers did not seem rushed, and more attention was given to the customers."

  • "Fogo de Chao is amazing and we cannot wait to go back. I am sad that it took me this long to find but will not lose it again! Your staff made the experience the best it could be, thank you!"

  • "Very nice ambience and efficient service. Mostly after being asked if this was a special occasion and I mentioned that our son has just graduated, they brought his dessert ringed by "Congratulations" spelled in chocolate around his cheesecake."

  • "I had a Graduation Dinner for my son where I made reservations for 11 people but did not make a specific request for any special occasion. One of the servers approached me and asked quietly if we were celebrating anything. I told him and when he brought out dessert to my son, he had a sparkler in it. To do this without even being asked is excellent personable service! To top it off, the food was delicious!"

  • "I hadn't been since the restaurant first opened years back. At that time, people dressed well to dine at Fogo de Chao. Now it seems to be a place for tourists, as most people were wearing t-shirts and shorts. The food and service is still fantastic, but it was disappointing to go there for a special occasion and be surrounded by informally dressed people."

There was always wait staff nearby, and they were always friendly, accomodating and going out of their way to make us happy diners! The food and drink were spectacular, and some of the salad bar items were exceptional. Everything was fresh and high quality and the selection of meats was unmatched."

  • "My boyfriend and I try to go here for every special occasion. We absolutely love it. Not only do you get amazing food and incredible service, but the overall experience is great. You're not just sitting there eating, you're turning your card to green and watching all of the servers come around and serve you specifically. A quick tip: don't fill up on the salad bar and bread, because the meat is endless!"

  • "My boyfriend and I dined here for our anniversary. A nice place for special occasions. I think I was more blown away by the salad bar than the meat. Salad bar is HUGE! and yummy and fresh. For meat, I'm a medium well girl and 1/2 of what came around was med rare so I had to wait a while for another skewer to come. But, if you ask your waiter, he'll get the specific meat and doneness you want out to you pretty quick! They are quick with new plates and water refills, but not so with refilling other drinks. Top sirloin and pork ribs were my fave! Rib eye also delish. I'd def go again, with a bigger appetite next time! Seriously, don't eat anything else the day of! "

  • "This was the third time my nephew and I have been to "Fogo de Chao" but this time was a very special occasion. He is graduating (from high school) and I told him I would treat him to wherever he wanted to go. He chose "Fogo..."! Obviously,we've enjoyed the food. But,it's the whole experience. The building/architecture is beautiful-I remember when it was a jewelry store!-and the dining is just plain fun. What I loved is the way the staff to a person treated my 17 year-old nephew. He was always spoken to as "sir",talked to as an adult,questioned if everything was to his liking,and never in a condescending way. As he goes off to college,I wonder if one day,he'll be like me:bringing someone special to your restaurant."

  • "Fogo de Chao is definitely the best Brazilian Steakhouse I have been to, and I have been to a few. The interior is gorgeous, the staff is above and beyond attentive. The salad bar is amazing, but don't give up valuable digestive real estate. You are here for the meat. Great cuts, deliciously prepared. Not overly fake smoked as other churrascaria restaurants I have been to. The high ceilings and tendency for large parties to celebrate here make the noise level pretty high, so be prepared. I enjoy myself every time I visit. So very worth it. Enjoy!!"

  • "We dined at Fogo de Chao in Philly for lunch following my daughter's graduation. We were a group of six and it was a perfect choice. The atmosphere is wonderful, the service was amazing and of course the food was awesome. It was nice surprise when my daughter received a special desert with Congratulations written on the plate. It was a great ending...thank you Fogo de Chao:)"

  • "Very nice time but at times were left unattended by our waitstaff due to the volume of people for Mothers Day. We had to order our drinks twice, and order dessert twice before they came. Other than that the steak was very good and the servers would ask what we were looking for and they were over in minutes. Sangria was excellent."

  • "We absolutely love this service here! It's a Brazilian steakhouse. All the cuts of meat are season differently. An amazing salad bar. The price is right. The dessert was wonderful. And it was my sons birthday so they don't make a spectacle out of you just a nice plate that has happy birthday on it with a candle in the cake. I need to mention the service again everyone is so attentive to your every need. 5⭐️"
