Anyone who has been here knows that they don't need any tips. They are incredible.
Delicious delicious delicious MEAT! And if u consider how much you can consume worth it too.
Meat lover's paradise – Great food, expensive, but worth it every once in a while.
I came here for dinner with some friends for the first time and all the good things I've heard about Fogo de Chao were true. I tried so many different types of meat that I can't say which was my favorite. Their garlic mashed potatoes were really really good. The salad bar looked to have a vast assortment of greens, but I'm a simple salad person so it was more than enough for me. The way they serve their meats is unique and the atmosphere was charged with many conversations.
All the good comes with a high price tag, but overall, I'd say it's well worth the occasional visit. You won't be disappointed.
The best plave in the City!!! – If you a meat lover – look no farther – the absolutely best place in the entire city of Chicago.
The staff working together to serve each of the tables, you get full attention, the meat is fresh and there is many to choose from so if you liked one peace more than other you can always order more – you can eat till you drop (literally). The price is worth it – better than any other steak house and lunch time is even $10 cheaper then dinner for exactly same meat variety.
You should check it out!!! We loved it.
The Best! – The food is so good that it feels being back in my hometown! : )
Great experience, absolutely incredible service – We went there for lunch, and had the most amazing service. Everything we wanted was attended to immediately.
The team of waiters were professional and very attentive. The manager (Paul) greeted us and made us feel very welcome. When we inquired about smoke salmon running out at the buffet, he not only went and brought more out to the buffet - but also personally brought us a plate of it to our table.
When we asked a waiter for some lamb, they went and got some lamb for us, and then it seemed like all the waiters knew we wanted lamb and wanted to take care of that need (someone came back later to ask if we got our lamb, then later another waiter came and offered us lamb chops even though our card was turned 'red').
It seems like any little thing you want is of the utmost importance to the manager and wait staff. Absolutely amazing service!
All you need is love (Fogo takes care of the rest) – I want to go across the street (Sports Authority) Buy a tent and live outside Fogo till they open!
I Love this place
22 People and everybody was happy – Went to Fogo on Friday November 23rd. We had 22 people in our party and everybody had a wonderful time. The food was incredible. The Filet was fork tender. The lamb was perfectly prepared. The selection on the salad bar was immense. If you like to eat then Fogo is paradise. I think I tried every offering that came out of the kitchen and my only complaint was that the ribs were a little dry (but I am picky when it comes to ribs). Will be back. Even the children enjoyed it.
best place to eat. – this is the best restaurant in Chicago. we go there every sunday and never had a bad meal. i only wish the price would be lower - but the price does worth the food.
Price went up, but it's STILL the very best – The prices have gone up to $32.50 for lunch (which includes the amazing salad bar), but this is STILL my absolute favorite restaurant, hands down! Many places raise their prices and drop their quality or serving size, not Fogo.
I brought my whole family when they were in from out of town, business partners, gone on dates here; it's very relaxing, comforting and the food is out of this world. Even the little Yorksire Puddings and side dishes that come with the meal are perfect! Ah- the garlic potatoes- okay, gotta relax before I have to go back tonight...!
If you want to really treat yourself or show off, this is the place to do it. If you're the type to be impressed by a $50. steak from Gibson's, you either don't know about this place or don't spend your dough wisely.
The service is marvelous, to boot. Even if you have a question about an unidentifiable "something" on the salad bar, ask. In my case, I was curious about the Palm Hearts. Not only was I told what they were by the manager, he brought me a print out of all the health benefits, caloric content, etc.! How can you beat that?
Granted, I haven't tried another restaurant like this one; why bother? I know I'm going to love it every time. Until that changes, I ADORE Fogo De Chao!
EAT AT FOGO!
