The first Fogo de Chão was opened in Porto Alegre in 1979 by Southern Brazilian--Gaucho country--brothers who had worked their way up from busboys to churrasqueiro chefs. Today, the prix-fixe steakhouse has more than half-a-dozen locations in Brazil and more than twice that in the States. After starting your meal with all you can eat from their enormous salad bar (filled with more than 30 items both imported and local--hot and cold), you're saturated with 15 cuts of beef, pork, lamb and poultry, sliced tableside from skewers, until you've had your fill. And then, of course, there's dessert--perhaps flan, or strawberry cheesecake--if you can still make room, that is.
- Steakhouses: "Make sure to check the Market Table options for delicious sides (and vegetarian options) like salads, soups, and feijoda (black bean stew served over rice)."
- Brazilian: "Go hungry to this Brazilian steakhouse, where 15 cuts of beef, pork, lamb and poultry, sliced tableside from skewers, keep you on the go until you say no."
- Best for Steakhouses Because: You'll enjoy the best selection of meats from Fraldinha (Brazilian sirloin) and filet mignon to new york strip and more at this rodizio-style steak joint.
- Best for Brazilian Because: While Fogo is technically a chain, it goes beyond its high standards for this rodizio-style restaurant, making it one of the best Brazilian spots in town.
