Fogo de Chão Restaurant Review

: Fogo de Chão is long-established as a mecca of meat, and there are outlets all over Brazil and the U.S. With the feel of one roaring party, the plus-size dining room fills with guests and swarms with roving servers carrying humongous chunks of all-you-can-eat meat on long sword-like skewers, to be sliced off right onto diners’ plates. With such massive output, one would think the quality of the meat would suffer. It doesn’t. Sirloin, laced with garlic, is nearly addictive, as are the Parmesan-encrusted pork loin and bacon-wrapped chicken breast. Steak, whether it’s rib-eye or sirloin, is surprisingly tender and juicy. There’s also a salad bar and plenty of sides to go with your meat. But, then again, they are not really why you’re here, right? Pair it all with a bottle of vino from the extended list, many of which are from South America.
