The table we sat by was very loud, due to the babies crying, and parents yelling at their children. It took about 15 minutes for us to get our eat selection, after that the service and food was amazing ! Thank you all, I would recommend!

Great place if you're meat lover.
Be prepared to consume big amounts of steaks, and other meat
it feels like a buffet, but classy, you eat as much as you want and can,lots of yummy side dishes too.
Good place for special events, such as birthdays and anniversaries!

Always an excellent experience going to Fogo. Attentive service and the meats are so delicious! The salad bar is impressive as well. Saw squash soup for the first time. Filet, lamb chop, pork with cheese, bacon wrapped filet, sausage were all so tasty. Ended the meal with Papaya Cream for dessert. A nice sweet counter to the salty meats.

I have heard many friends and family rave of this place, however I felt it was overpriced and overrated. They are very selective of the meat that goes around, I continually had to request the New York strip be brought around and finally after the third request someone came around.
The slices of meat are filled with fat or cartlidge and the food bar was reminiscent of an old pizza hut buffet.
50$ a person for a few slices of 'pemium' steak at a time... Felt like a suckers bet.
The service was excellent and ambience was ritzy.
Don't go here wearing shorts even if you have a stacked bank account, it's a slap in the face to those going here to celebrate a special occasion.

This was a family early New Year's Eve celebration. The food was amazing, as always, but the service was seriously lacking. I spent most to my time looking out for our server to ask for things we needed than I did actually enjoying the meal with my family. I was seriously disappointed.

It had been 10+ years since I'd been to this location but I remember it being great before. It is nothing near the quality anyone would expect. My daughter was home from school and we were in Houston for a couple of days. Very last minute decision to eat and it was a 10pm reservation on a Thursday. Also had my 17 yr old son. The 3 of us with tea/soda, no dessert and tip of $30 came to $206 so not your typical quick dinner out!
Salad bar was average at best and looked picked through and messy. Chic salad and fruit salad are good along with some of the cheeses. Tomatoes were tasteless. It used to be much better.
It was not crowded as it was about 9:30 when we arrived. Staff was nice and no complaints with any of them. The majority of the meats were tough and lacking flavor. We had to ask for fresh rolls because the ones we were served were cold and hard. The house special was good and lamb chop I thought was good. Overall I was really shocked at how bad the quality of the beef was.
This is not supposed to be your average steakhouse at $51.50 to start when you sit down. I've had better steak at $20 chain restaurants. It was very disappointing. My daughter loves a good steak so I was looking forward to this last minute treat! Costing over $200 for us 3 it was very wasted money. I'm not the type to complain and don't mind paying for a good meal. My son has a speech disability and can't eat beef unless it is really tender. I know going to any type place like this is wasted on him but I've done it for years. It would be nice if there was some kid friendly alternative but I understand why there isn't. I pretty much paid for him to eat a few rolls and literally one bite of steak.
Overall the meat was not anywhere near the quality it should be. Not at that price. It was really disappointing as I was looking forward to a great last minute treat for my daughter. Service was good. My advice...pick another spot, especially if it's for a special night out!

Becoming a "Boxing Day" tradition with us. Great service, and if you don't end up getting full it is your own fault. I swear they put some kind of addictive drug in their rolls, I love those things almost as I do the different types of meat they bring around.
Thanks for yet again a wonderful experience.

Cocktails were ok. Salad bar was the best. Most of the meats were dry and well done when asked for medium. Had to ask for the filet mignon and Parmesan pork twice before it finally came to the table. Our waiter was no where to be found.

Excellent restaurant for meat lovers. Servers wander around with various cuts of meat on large skewers. They'll come by your table with great cuts of sirloin, filet mignon, rib eye, lamb chops, pork chops, chicken, etc. , as you choose which you would like (or choose all) to have sliced upon your plate. The meat is tasty and plentiful, and the sides and salad bar finish off the scene nicely. It can be a really fun (and extremely filling) experience.
There are two options for lunch: the mar ...
There are two options for lunch: the market table is 15.00 and you get the best salad bar/charcuterie in the city. For a few dollars more you can add 8-10 oz of your favorite cut of meat. There are four meats to choose from including their signature picanha.
If the full choice of all the meats they offer is what you are looking for, the lunch goes to 34.95. We opted for this one because it was our anniversary and our favorite there is the filet mignon, bacon wrapped chicken, and sirloin.
It's our go to restaurant for a special occasion dining experience.

I love this Resturant it's changed a bit thru out the years. But over all a good place to come and enjoy a variety of different meats and a excellent salad bar. Just know your not walking out the door for under $100 being spent.

Always plenty of food. The chicken tends to be a little dried out. They need a little more variety in their meat. I would have liked to have seen more lamb and at least a little cabrito.
Some grilled veggies would be a nice touch. It's just that I have been there a few times and their menu is getting a little boring.
The waiters are always nice and very courteous. No problem there.

I made reservations for my husband's birthday and added a note that we were celebrating his birthday and the staff/hostess did not even acknowledge this... overall it was overpriced and just okay. We honestly like Texas de Brazil much better...

I was there for my birthday . i sat at the table and they totally ignored us we had asked for the menu with the meats they have its was and hour to get that by that time we only had one server with chicken come to our table..i got tired of screaming excuse me sir and holding my card in hand to show but that didnt work either.

Still the best churrasqueria in town. We lived in South America for many years and were used to this concept which originated in Brazil by restauranteurs seeking to feed long distance truckers driving north/south on Brazilian highways. Fogo originated in Porto Allegre and visiting American businessmen convinced the owners that they needed to bring the concept to the U.S. Am told their first restaurant was in Dallas because it was there they found the first Portuguese speaking lawyer to help them get established.
Excellent non-stop food, five star non-stop service, and whenever you ask for something (be it another drink or whatever) it instantly appears at your table. Still the one to beat and despite a couple of competitors, Fogo leaves the rest in the dust.
