The only thing I have to compare is Fogo de Chow. The salad bar was ok but none of the items were labeled. For example, croutons were heavy garlic. Good to those who like garlic, wasted food to those who don’t.
Good meat selections nice variety of seasonings. The house special steak was by far the best.
Overall, a Fogo want to be, WAY overpriced, especially for light eating seniors.

Excellent service from the hostess to the servers. My glass was never empty and I always had a clean plate. I normally just get the salad bar because the meat at other Brazilian Steakhouses I've been to, the meat is bland. Fogueeira Gaucha was perfectly seasoned and tasted wonderful.

The only reason I gave a low score on the value is, I can't eat very much and I wish that had another option besides the two they have now.

An absolutely fabulous experience. It was our first visit and after a small degree of awkwardness on our part the manager and assistant guided us perfectly to create a marvelous evening. Everything about this establishment is top shelf. The best dining experience I've had in the greater Austin area.

I enjoyed my visit to Foqueira Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse. The food was excellent and service to match the food experience. From the moment we enter the building to the time we left the experience we great. The food was timed to a beautiful dance as the server came and went in a unique way.

If I could voice one thought it would be about the dress of the customers. I read the following, Proper Attire Required, We are business casual and Thank you for not wearing tank tops, flip-flops, or gym wear and took this to heart and dressed nicely for our anniversary. But, most of the clientele came in wearing shorts, T-shirts, hoodies, and flip-flops. I would suggested that for those who take the time to make a reservation and come in dressed very nicely that you seat them in a more secluded or private area to create a better atmosphere. Taking time to dress nicely and spending for this experience to be seated next to a person in shorts and a T shirt who was loud about her drink experience was my ding.

Great experience and exceptional service. Not for the light of heart....more for the person desiring a food experience consisting of what a churrascaría offers, many choices of the best cuts of beef, pork, lamb and chicken. Even our fourteen year daughters know how to enjoy the experience. From the salad bar with its iceberg salad, smoked salmon, prosciutto, and many cheeses, to the spicy crispy thick cuts of bacon one can decide how they wish to truly enjoy their meal. They have never disappointed and we look forward to the next family celebration to be able to enjoy Fogueira Gaucha again.

We had a wonderful time here on New Year’s Day. We have gone to Brazilian steakhouses all over the country, and this is one of the best. We enjoyed it more than Fogo de Chao which had been our go-to favorite. The service is phenomenal. They give you that little bit of something extra that creates a very gracious dining experience and doesn’t make it seem so “assembly line,” as it can at the chain steakhouses. This one is family owned and operated. The servers are very knowledgeable and attentive. The food itself is top notch. Salad bar very choice, including “to die for” spicy bacon. Good wine list and ambiance. I wish I lived in Austin so I could dine here regularly. It was priced very reasonably compared to other Brazilian steakhouses. Highly recommended.

We took 2 of our grandchildren to dinner and they loved it and we had a great time. The servers were very attentive to what meats we were most interested in were great with our 9 and 11 year old grandchildren. They have a great wine selection also to go with the wonderful food.

When I looked at going to this place the inside was gorgeous however, when we were seated we were seated on the opposite side of the restaurant in something that look like a huge banquet hall felt more like I was sitting in Luby’s. I asked if we could move to the other side and they said that we could not. They use the excuse that it was too noisy. The ambience for Christmas Eve was not nice at all and the food was just mediocre compared to other Brazilian steakhouse is that I have visited over the years.

We went for our anniversary and the staff treated us like royalty. The food was amazing and my significant other voted the steaks as the best ever. A tad pricey but it was worth every penny to us. Thank you to the staff at the Round Rock location.

We were ready to start eating they open the bottle of wine we bought .. and we received a call my 7 months old had Sky rocking fever we had to leave we offer them to pay the entire bill and let us come back later but they didn’t want to so we end up paying 130 just for coming inside and sit down we put in our plate a piece of lettuce that was absurd

I've been to many Brazilian Churrascarias in several states and also in Brazil, and I must say that my experience at Fogueira Gaúcha was among the best. Top notch service, it felt like we were in a 5 star restaurant. They served us black beans, rice, farofa, and fried banana that weren't part of the salad bar, and at our request they brought perfectly fried macaxeira frita (cassava). The salad bar was amazing and very fresh. The meats were absolutely succulent, especially the picanha, rib eye, filet mignon, and chicken wrapped in bacon. At my wife's request they also brought chicken hearts straight off the grill. To finish it off, the creme brulee was one of the best we've ever had, with a perfect, fresh, sweet strawberry. Amazing!

the service was great, the atmosphere was quiet and the staff did a good job taking care of us. The food was fantastic. They even went out of their way to write happy Anniversary on our dessert plate. I cant wait to go again, but sure hope there is a lunch option with a tad lower price so that i can go more often.

Some of the meat was PURPLE (I like med rare, not raw). Put the chimichuri in a bigger bowl instead of bringing me 3 re-fills. Mashed potatoes were not very exciting. Salad bar excellent. Chicken hearts???

I would’ve given them 5 stars, but they tried to charge my girlfriend $55 for her “one glass” of wine. I would still recommend the place to friends, but tell them to make sure the bill is correct before they pay. I almost didn’t tip because I was thinking the person that printed the check did it on purpose. The service was decent except for the waitstaff pouring tap water into my glass of sparkling water. They brought another sparkling water out and a second waitstaff person tried to pour tap water into my sparkling water again, and this time I stopped them, and said no this is sparkling water. Also it took forever to get the check to pay and leave. It made us late for a movie. I still left a tip because the service overall was decent.

We have been to four other Brazilian Steakhouses and this is our new favorite! The salad bar is the best I have ever seen, the people were incredibly attentive and professional, and the food was unmatched! Love this new find and wish we would have known about it sooner!

When we arrived we had to wait even though we had a reservation. We were seated in an area in the back to the left. Some servers literally walked past us with certain meets to go to the table behind us even though our circles were set to green. I literally had to ask to be served lamb chop because I was tired of being overlooked. Overall I don’t think it was worth the value and would rather go to fogo.
