Time Out says

The three-level midtown outpost of this Brazilian steakhouse chain carves up more than a dozen varieties of all-you-can-eat beef (bacon-wrapped filet mignon, garlic-seasoned sirloin), as well as Parmesan-crusted pork loin, lamb chops and chicken legs. Color-coded cards are doled out to each table so guests can signal servers when they're ready to order more. To drink, find tropical cocktails like mojitos and Brazil's national quaff, the caipirinha (cachaça, muddled lime and sugar).

Fogo de Chao! Went here for restaurant week and it did not disappoint. Endless appetizer/salad options + endless sides and meats? YES. All for 42? DOUBLE YES. Came with two friends and the food was delicious! You first start by getting a plate and piling it with whatever appetizers and salad bar options you want. I got ceasar salad, a pear/spinach salad, brussel sprouts, a basil vinagrette, some butternut squash soup and some other stuff but didnt get too much because i needed to leave room for the meats! Basically if you want meat you keep the coaster face up with a green yes and when you don't you flip it to the red no. There were soooo many great meats. All super tender and flavorful, and they cut off slices at whatever temperature you want! I ate probably all the meat I've had for the year. Also, their sides were poppin! Polenta cakes, MASHED POTATOES, and plantains. We got mad refills on those. Then we ended on three choices for dessert: Cheesecake, Chocolate mousse cake, and key lime pie. All great finishers to a great meal. Will visit again soon!


I had heard nothing but rave reviews about Fogo de Chao before first going myself a few months ago and this did not disappoint! The meal was incredibly delicious. The last time I had Brazilian churrasco, I was a kid visiting rodizio restaurants with my parents in Newark's Ironbound district. This meal brought me back. The meat is high quality and delicious. The ambience beautiful but not at all stuffy. And the continuous serving style is a fun and out of the ordinary experience for most American diners - great dinner idea for a group!

This was my first time going to a Brazilian BBQ and I was recommended this one specifically by a colleague. It blew me away! So delicious! This place is pretty much all you can eat. The staff have the service down perfectly, and your meat selections come to your table, controlled by you flipping a card that indicates whether you want more or not. I was a little worried that I'd be waiting, but the staff we're hot on it! They we're great at explaining the process to newbies like me too! The prix fixe menu was really reasonable too, I cant recommend this place enough.
