Good meat, usually at the right done was and all you can eat. The salad bar is extensive and tasty.

Service was on point. Meats were succulent and delicious.
Have improved the salad bar with more unexpected offerings. Worth every penny.

Brazilian in Chicago
Being Brazilian of course I am very familiar with Brazilian Steakhouses, that's why I was a little disappointed with the salad buffet. i thought they could have a bit more of a variety of things. The meat was delicious, although I again I thought they could have had more variety of cuts. Service was very very good!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
As a native South American I can appreciate good beef. However the
price to eat at this restaurant is extremely high. I know is all you can eat
and high quality, but the tab for 3 of us at dinner was $200. If you don't mind
spending this amount of money then this place is for you, otherwise stay

Wonderful! The service was
Wonderful! The service was excellent and always on top of what we wanted. We will definitely go back!

Pickin' on the Picanha
My favorite cut of meat (and I believe all Brazilians will agree with me) is picanha. With just the right amount of seared fat on the sides, the experienced Brazilian gauchos at Fogo de Chao know how to turn this into anyone's rodizio highlight of the night. The lamb chops are also very, very good. And of course, gotta have that tall glass of caipirinha. A perfect meat lover's dinner with a South American twist.

Went there for lunch before
Went there for lunch before school started. All the servers remembered our preferences when they came by on their rounds with the different meats. They made sure that we had the types we wanted. The salad bar is amazing, and the sides are always very good.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome service, amazing food, perfect place to eat for a special day or just in the mood for steak

Impressed My New Yorker
Food was spectacular as usual. Service was outstanding. It was a perfect spot for our date.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and food!
This is the third of their restaurants we have eaten in. The experience has been the same in all. Very friendly, non-rushed dining and eating experience. One of the best salad bars anywhere. All the meats served quickly, perfectly done and plentifully. The service and food so well done you will remember it long after your meal. Ambiance allows hardy conversations.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM

A little expansive but u will eat so much you meet u wont regret it !
It is not just quantity but also the quality.

Give it a try.
Fogo de Chao is a really good Brazilian Steakhouse. The wine list was really good, the salad bar had a lot of options, and the meat came to us very quickly. Give this place a try.
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
The waiters are what make this place and they are very helpful. And their pants and boots are exotic. Many of them are actually from Brazil. Also really good for gluten free people.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have to say that I was blown away by the exceptional service at this restaurant. I have been to Fogo de Chao in DC, Indy and Chicago and this was by far the best! Their service an food were terrific. 1 thing that stood out to me was the manager who took care of us. My mother uses a cane to walk and thus hard for her to hold a plate at the salad bar and walk. The manager noticed this right away and helped her pick out each item whild holding her plate for her. I have never seen this before anywhere and my mother was very touched. He told her he did it because " she was special to his establishment". She gave him a hug on the way out. He was truly great. Servers were great with my 4 year old and 9 month old.

Best Brazilian style steak house
Best Brazilian style steak house in Chicago, not to mention the excellent lamb.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great wine and a great place to catch up with your friends.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We,ve gone many times before to Fogo de Chao and my family loves it. We've always had a great experience, but last night was truly amazing, all of the cuts were juicy and tender, just with the perfect timing. So that made our evening all the more enjoyable. Service, on the spot as always. Great place, also for kids.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good for what it is. You can definitely find better steak for the price of the restaurant.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good for groups
We were a group of six co-workers that went out after training. The food was great and the meats kept coming. Sometimes it felt a little bit of a too fast pace though.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second experience dining at Fogo de Chao and it was equally as amazing as the first time.
9/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Exceptional food and the service is the best I've seen yet.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is as close to authentic as I had when I lived in Brazil. Excellent food, what is more, my wife, who maybe eats red meat twice a year, loved it, chowed down and had no discomfort afterwards. We had excellent service. The place is hectic and noisy, but the food is well worth it.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband always wanted to
My husband always wanted to try this place, so it was his choice for his birthday dinner. We liked it, but would not go back. You get a ton of food, but we would prefer to go to a restaurant and just order an entree off the menu. The staff was great, the food was a little on the salty side - and I just don't like when you leave a restaruant feeling overly full, and that is what happens here.

TThe staff was super friendly and the food was amazing. Come with a big appetite and make sure you pace yourself.

I have been living in Chicago for 4 years, and I have never been disappointed with the service and food at Fogo. The service is just great and everybody is so friendly and helpful.
As a meat lover, I visited almost all the steakhouses in Chicago from Michael Jordan to David Burke, and I never had a memorable experience or went back. But Fogo is an exception. It is my all-time favorite restaurant and has the best tasting meat (and the most variety) in Chicago.
It is suitable for large groups and is never too loud. Everyone I have taken to Fogo loves it and has gone back to eat at Fogo. I would recommend it to everyone.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic. I really think there are just as many employees working as there are customers. We had a fantastic time at the restaurant and can't wait to go back!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorite places
fogo is one of my very favorite places to eat in Chicago. They have the best salad bar I have ever seen. But don't get sucked in to eating too much at the salad bar because they have one of the very best selection of different cuts of beef, lamb, chicken and pork
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall very good
As always, I love Fogo. We go in big groups and its great food and lots of fun. Only issue is we got our table 30 minutes past our reservation and hostess staff was a bit unaccomodating while we were waiting. But once we got in, the food and service were great.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and food.
The service NEVER fails. You can't go wrong with endless meat, super fresh salad bar, and great ambiance. It was a bit noisy the day Iwent due to two birthday parties. But overall it's a great place to have dinner with a loved one or a group of friends. Awesome place.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service is the best
Two things stand out for me with Fogo. First, is the consistently fantastic service. It takes a significant sized team to make a place like this work, and it is so well coordinated, and they are so focused on you that you are never wanting for anything for very long.
Second, paradoxically this is a great place for a vegetarian to take meat-eaters. I am vegetarian and my family non. The salad bar is vast and perfect. And is if that were not enough, the waiter offered to have the chef stir fry some veggies (which I declined due to the many options on the salad bar).
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My Two Vegans LOVE Fogo!
Why? Because of the outstanding salad bar and the fact that they will custom make any of their sides to fit a vegan diet.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My guy and I wanted to get away to Chicago. He has been to Fogo de Chao in Indianapolis and wanted my opinion. Loved it!! Nothing at all to complain about. The service, the food, the atmosphere was great.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to this place many times and I have enjoyed it. This most recent experience was so so - some meats were amazing and hot - others not so much
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quality Brazilian Steakhouse
Nice place to celebrate a special occasion. Excellent service and amazing food. The salad bar has a wide range of options; but could use another shrimp option. The table side food is wonderful. The beef ribs are hands down the best I've ever had; tender and seasoned perfectly. The only downside is the restaurant is a little tight.
Keep up the good job.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Rodizio experience
I am not a newbie to brazilian style churrascaria steakhouses. I have been to many locally owned and chains in the united states and europe and so far this restaurant which is conveniently a chain has been the best experience i have had to date. First of all the service is 5 star quality french style service, they truly know how to take care of every customer no matter the quirks. The salad bar was very fresh and had a wide selection of meats, cheeses, soup, pasta, salad, etc. The best part by far is the meats, over 17 varieties of meat and they are marinated and grilled to absolute perfection. If you don't get the meat cooked to preference they make it happen ASAP. I cannot rave about this place any better it truly is a carnivores dream
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing service, everyone very nice and give you a lot of attention. Meat coming at you from so many directions, have to remember to flip the card to the red side. Filet mignon out of this world.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for my anniversary, and would defineatly recommend, everyone was really helpful and God the amount of food. My thanks to our serve Ana for providing an excellent service. We will be back and request her as a server, even though all the stuff members were outstanding. Thank you!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
found the beef
Great selection of meat. But come hungry. My only'complaint' would be they came too frequently too fast.... Like bam bam bam. . it wouldn't kill to give a bit of time in between. I got full too soon. Would have liked to eat more. Would and will repeat.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner at Fogo is always good. Service was good, but would have been better if the prime cuts would have come around more. We were at the front of the restaurant so I could understand this if this was not what I come to expect from Fogo. The Fogo in MPLS is always busy and they are around enough to where I have to flip my card; didn't have to do this while dining in the CHI Fogo. Also, didn't come around to ask if there was a requested meat we would have liked before calling it quits.
Wine was paired well and server was courteous. I will go again when in town; however will request to sit closer to the kitchen.

Good but not as great as I remember
I went to this location a year ago, and was looking forward to going back. Starting off, they had problems clearing out large groups; 40+ people all waiting for 7 o'clock reservations. Directed to the bar area, ended up waiting about 30 minutes; seemed like a lot when I already had a reservation. Eventually brought cheese bread out to the bar which was nice, but a free drink would have been better. Everything went well from there on. The salad bar was excellent, if it wasn't so pricey I would go just to eat that. The service was very good throughout, and rarely a long wait for meat when on "green". Some of the cuts were not as amazing as I remember from last time, but all quite good. Key lime pie was amazing, best I've had.

Came here for the first time
Came here for the first time with my fiance and father. My fiance has come here quite a few times and has been meaning to take me. I can't believe we waited this long! The salad bar is incredible! I would come here just for that (and you can!) Really fresh, beautiful options. Everything was delicious. Then the meat started coming around. My favorite was the top sirloin cut. It was outstanding. So tender and flavorful! All three of us got a wine flight (a new addition and only in red). The wine was delicious and just the right amount poured into each glass. We ended the evening with glasses of limoncello and 43. So yummy. Our waiter, Marcelo, was awesome. Great service, very attentive. I'm excited to return!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
My two friends and I treated ourselves to a late lunch on a Wednesday. Couldn't have been more perfect.
I've eaten here at least 5 times over the years. With friends, as a couple, for a company holiday party, and every time the service has been impeccable and the food beyond terrific. It is quite expensive, but you are made to feel as if you (and everyone in your party) is someone special, a celebrity even. You don't have to have a big name to be treated like a big deal. This will certainly not be my last visit! Specially now that there's one in the Rosemont (MB Financial) Food Park!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellence. That's the only word to describe this restaurant. They go above and beyond to treat you like royalty.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first experience here. The service was unlike anything I have ever experienced before. Very prompt. My boyfriend is quite the eater, so he was in heaven. They were very accommodating and very friendly.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Once is enough.
I've been to others and knew what to expect. However while the wait staff was super I found the food very ordinary and way over priced. The drinks were different and tasty and the dessert was delicious but not worth the money.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
So much delicious food!
We had a reservation, but they were running behind in seating people. Not a problem because we were able to get drinks and seats in the bar area while we waited. Everything on the salad bar looked fresh. I especially enjoyed the manchengo cheese. All the meat was absolutely delicious. I loved that each piece they cut off for you has been char-grilled to perfection. I was divided on the sides at the table. The mashed potatoes and fried polenta were just ok. The fried bananas were pretty good. But my absolute favorite food of the night might have been the cheesy bread puffs. Make sure you try them. Service was great. If you want certain meats, just let one of the gauchos know and they will send it over almost immediately.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was exceptional. The wait staff just kept returning if you turn that card to green. My son's girlfriend is Lactose intolerant and she didn't have any problem with the food/choices. She was pleased with all the choices. We will definitely return.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service
Fogi De Chao never fails to impress. The meat is fresh, the salad delightful and the service impeccable. We were checked on at least every ten minutes or so on top of the almost over eager meat servers.
As the restaurant is always buzzing, the meat is always fresh and so are the salads. Pace yourself as you will be offered back to back skewers of meat!
The only downside was on arrival the welcoming desk were not very welcoming and were quite "army"-esque in their approach rather than welcoming, once we were sat down however the experience was fab
Will definitely go back .
