Fogo de Chao: "Brazilian Steakhouse - all you can eat" Fogo de Chao Tip by CLillard

Fogo de Chao, Houston: 6 reviews and 0 photos

This place is a bit expensive, so come hungry! I recommend going at lunch on a weekday because the price is lower.
This Brazilian meat eater's paradise includes an all-you-can-eat salad buffet with such exotic fare as quail eggs, crab salad and feijoada (a mixture of black beans and rice), along with thinly sliced meats and collard greens. The gauchos come around and serve meat until you say STOP. It includes 17 kinds of meat and seafood, from bacon-wrapped chicken to beef tenderloin, ham, chicken hearts and linguiça, a Portuguese sausage, all served by gauchos wielding three-foot skewers of the meats prepared in the churrasco fashion. These beloved carriers of carne continuously bring on the meat until you can take no more. Wash it all down with a caipirinha, the national drink of Brazil, made with fresh-squeezed lime juice and rum.

The restaurant is open for lunch Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dinner is served every night.

Favorite Dish: The picanha is my favorite steak!
