Kevin was a wonderful server for our business lunch. They put us in the semi private wine room which was much appreciated. The Tuesday special of the pork tacos were SO GOOD. The mezze spreads were delicious as usual. Always a favorite when downtown.

To stand out in the competitive KC barbecue scene of the mid 1970's, Jack and Delores, began cooking with Gourmet Hickory Wood and created the most extensive barbecue menu in the country. The menu included Certified Angus Beef steaks, tender chicken, award-winning lamb ribs, and mouth-watering sides like Hickory Pit Beans and Cheesy Corn Bake.

Great customer service! Food was good. Recommend real turkey instead of deli turkey.

Very good experience! We had someone in our party physically disabled and I specified that in my reservation. I was concerned that the notes wouldn't be referenced, but they were and we were sat where it was easy for the individual to get to and from the table.

If you plan to eat here before a show at the Music Hall, definitely make a reservation! We arrived for ours at 5:45pm and people without reservations were being told the wait was an hour. The Happy Hour (ends at 6pm sharp) menu has good variety and prices. The pizza was a little skimpy on toppings, the cheese curds were very greasy and the fries that came with the sliders weren't fresh. As we've enjoyed these before during Happy Hour, and they've all been better, we'll try again.

Our server Adrienne was awesome. She did an exceptional job for only her 2nd day at Fogo De Chao. The only issue we had was that we did not get offered certain meat selections. We saw them being served but they never made it to our table.

About the restaurant
Since 1972, we’ve believed in quality ingredients, cooking from scratch and having fun. From our famous ‘Shrooms and Stuffed Chicken Breast to our unique burger blend and ahi tuna, we believe in celebrating the small things and that every moment deserves a toast in its honor. So grab a drink (perhaps our signature Long Island Iced Tea), enjoy some great conversation and let us serve you an excellent meal.

Our appetizer was the spinach with lavash bread and it was delicious! I had the salmon with the spaghetti squash, so good and my husband had the meatloaf which is the best he had ever had. The atmosphere was nice and our server was amazing! Love this restaurant! We eat there at least twice a month!!
