Fogo de Chão

Fogo de Chão Review

Gaucho-clad servers parade through the dining room brandishing carved-to-order skewered and grilled meats at this all-you-can-eat Brazilian churrascaria. First stop for diners is the lavish salad bar, then, using a plate-side chip, you signal green for "go" to bring on lamb, pork loin, ribs, and several beef cuts, stopped only by flipping your chip to red, for "stop." You can restart as often as you like. If that's not enough, there are starchy sides and desserts included in the $51.50 price as well; only drinks are extra. Compared to traditional steak houses, this carnivorous all-inclusive feast is somewhat of a bargain. Go on a busy night (Thursday, Friday, or Saturday) to ensure that the meat is tender and not dried out from reheating—this is also when the restaurant is the most fun and liveliest.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
