This has to be the best dinning experience! They have such amazing staff! We go here for our birthdays every year and they never let us down. The food is great! The service is always amazing! And their deserts are delicious! They have such a great variety of wines too! We wouldn't go anywhere else! This has to be by... More

I've been to three different Fogo locations but the San Antonio location was by far the best dining experience. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable and very attentive, the restaurant was very clean and presentable. The food of course was amazing! Over all experience was fabulous!

What's wonderful is that almost all their choices are GF. We went as a group party and the food was excellent. The reason for 4 stars is that the waiter poured an entire pitcher of water down my back. They stopped coming in our room with meat even though the staff had asked several in our group if they wanted... More

We were in town for my bro-in-law's Air Force graduation and as meat lovers we made our plans to have lunch at the Fogo. The salad buffet was very good, the rice took a little longer to be served to our table, but we were there for the meat and that seemed to take forever to finally get to us.... More

Visited with friends. The salad bar is very good, the meat cuts that are constantly being brought by the servers are excellent, very well cooked and very tasty. The Brazilian Lemonade is excellent. If you are not careful, you end up stuffed. It is a very good restaurant, but it is a tad expensive and not very recommendable for small... More

Generally we found service in San Antonio to be indifferent, except for this place. Our server was helpful, funny and understanding of small children in our party (she even offered to babysit - she should get a raise). She explained when and how food would be presented, and it was a constant stream of delicious meats and tasty sides. This... More

This was a great restaurant--we were really pleased. Made two visits, one ofr lunch and one for dinner in the evening on Thanksgiving day. The restaurant, believe it or not, while heaven for meat eaters (excellent lamb and ribeye) is also great for vegetarians (fish eaters). Excellent salad bar, with fine cheese and smoked salmon. Restaurant is also very family... More

The service and food at this restaurant was outstanding. The filet and lamb were my favorites. The meats were seasoned well, but was not too salty. The bread along with the mashed potatoes were great. Definitely worth the money...

the variety of dishes have diminished. the meats are, sometimes, without the right amount of salt. this one isn't one of the best restaurants of the chain...

They serve the meat on sticks until you say stop. Meat is delicius and worth the price you pay. Service is perfect also.

Description
Fogo de ChaoR (fo-go dee shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, FogoR began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.
