I don't agree with the bad reviews some people have written. I do agree that the price is a little shocking but you do get a lot for the cost. Everything is delicious and the service is almost too much, they keep coming and coming with the food. I felt like I was going to pop when I walked out. I found a good spot and will go again for sure.

I was longing for a delicious steak dinner when I saw a billboard for this Brazilian steak house so I figured what the heck lets try it out. When we arrived we were seated and greeted and advised that the cost per person is $31 flat rate. I was thrown off by this but as he went on to explain it was all you could eat steak, ribs, ham, lamb etc and salad bar but did NOT include drinks or desert. I thought to myself this might not be too bad so lets give it a try. So I wandered to the salad bar where the only thing I found appealing was the potato salad. They had crab legs, shrimp salad, chicken salad and a few zucchini dishes, however I don't like seafood and the zucchini dishes were not that tasty very bland and kind of dirty tasting. I moved onto to the so called hot appetizers which was just hot soup so I opted not to partake in that either and to move onto the meats. So here come the meats starting with lamb which I don't care for so I passed on that then came the chicken, pork ribs, ham, and roast beef, which all seemed to have the same seasoning and taste which was far too salty. I came to a steak house in hopes of a fat juicy tasty steak. I stopped eating about 10-15min after starting cleary unsatisfied with the food. The waiter did not care to notice this and just brought us our $75 tab when all we truly ate was some potato salad. We were shocked that he did not ask how things were or if we were satisfied. We aren't ones to usually complain, so we paid the bill

The Brazilian steakhouse concept is an all-you-can-eat experience, featuring grilled meats on a big stake that is carved and served to you table side. Vegans and folks with small appetites should skip it. This restaurant turned out to be average and did not overly impress us. I ate mostly chicken as the beef and lamb I sampled were very tough. Good selection of salads and side dishes, though. The restaurant makes additional money from desserts and drinks (there is also an after-dinner drink cart that comes by your table and is quite tempting). We had sticker shock when the bill came (over $200, including tip, for 3 people). I've had much better fine dining experiences for much less money. It's a fun concept to try but don't expect too much here, or you'll be disappointed.

I have been to a brazilian steakhouse in Vegas that was out of this world good so I tried to find one locally. Unfortunately for me the next time I eat at one I think I'll wait til I visit vegas again. The food was alright and the service wasn't anything spectacular and when we got the bill my jaw dropped, I don't think it's worth the price at all!

Okay, Fogo's is really expensive but unless you're a vegetarian, you've got to try it at least once (especially if someone else is paying). It's basically all you can eat but not only do they bring you the food, they bring skewers of all kinds of deliciously roasted food and carve it off onto your plate at the table. It's so Awesome!

I have never and will never eat so much at a restaurant again in my life. Meat, meat and more meat. They have a great "salad" bar too and the menu is easy enough to manuver. Order the meat and salad bar and begin the feast. The peg on your table indicates to servers "green" for go and "red" for enough. If you go green be ready to leave feeling like you've just eaten three Thanksgiving dinners.

You are lead to believe that you are getting a number of roasted meats, I challenge anyone to tell me the difference between Rumpsteak, Top Sirloin, Tri Tip and Shish Kebab, and garlic steak...yes basically the same thing. Then the most infuriating thing is the technique that this restaurant uses. They try to load you up on starchy foods, and then they bring out the cheap meats first: sausage, chicken, pineapple, chiken hearts, and then they bring out the good stuff. So if you think that you have a good deal think again.

One of the worst experiences, the meat was disgusting, there is no other word for it, it's the lowest quality. You are also supposed to eat it rare, why would they ask? The salads were bad too, the other side dishes, disgusting.The worst part of the story: we paid 85 dollars for two,(no alcohol), we feel robbed, usually when you pay, you have good food.

yes this is an expensive place but when you consider all the meat you can eat and have a buffet of other things it is well worth the price and the experience I deffinatley recommend this for a night on the town.

do not eat at this poor over priced version of a Brazilian steak house. the meat is very salty and is either of the lowest of quality or just prepared with such incompetence that it could be served at a waffle house. I never thought you could describe fillet mignon could be described accurately as dry and gamey but at fogo brasa you can. I didn't even try the salad/sea food bar but my wife did and it was equally bad. Kate moss like crab legs and lots of mayo. I have eaten at many of this style restaurant's and this was by far the worst. trust me don't try it.

You can enjoy it all by pacing yourself. The hard part was remembering to turn the little cork they give you to the right color when you want more!We spent 2 hours eating and it was so relaxing to enjoy everything. The salad bar has some unsual items to try. All of the meat leaves you with some great flavors. Ask for a recommendation on a wine to compliment your dinner.Remember to save room for their dessert cart.

My husband likes this place because he's a big meat eater. Good atmosphere, great salad bar. Sometimes can be a bit loud and not ideal for a romantic tete-a-tete.

This is a great dinner place if you really like meat, but even better is their salad bar during lunch. It's $8-$9 and it has anything and everything you can imagine. Try it next time you're in the area.
