Fogo de Chao, Fogo de Chao, Fogo De Chao. In the world of churrascarias in southern California this is one place always thrown into the conversation. This past week was Dine L.A. http://discoverlosangeles.com/play/dining/ and I took full advanntage of it by placing a reservation for what is normally the most expensive churrascaria in the Los Angeles area (It looked like everybody else also had the same idea). On this night we got a good discount to come dine with all the service of any other night. The four of us showed up a little early and had a round at the bar which the bartender just gave us a tab to take to the table. We dined on filet mignon, bacon wrapped filet mignon, bacon wrapped chicken, chicken leg, leg of lamb, lamb chops, top cap sirloin, sirloin, flank steak, parmesan encrusted pork, rib eye, pork ribs, beef ribs, sausage (which was the one thing I did not have). I think Im missing one more from this list. Oh yes and there was the salad bar starter that seemed to have offered less than some other brazilian churrascarias around town but the quality of food on it was top notch. The caprihinnas were strong but the sangria is the only area that takes a hit here for me. It really lacked alot of flavor. So with the Dine L.A. going on they were completely packed the service was almost a little to good. Several times we did feel a little rushed but Id rather have that then a lack of service anyday. The desserts came and we were celebrating a birthday at the table so they comped us a dessert and also a coffee and sambucca for the birthday girl (nice touch). Suprisingly enough no singing though, but that may have been due to a packed house. Ive been to more than several different churrascarias now and I still think Espetus in San Francisco still rates number 1 overall but after last night Fogo de Chao for me is a close second. Maybe on not such a busy night the servers may have had a bit of time to chat and not just rush around. Remember they are the most expensive in Los Angeles so if you are looking to save a few bucks you may want to catch them here at the next Dine L.A. event. 5 out of 5 stars!!!

Everything! the style of "espeto corrido" is a classic from Brazil. From the bread and the cheese to the sausages "chorizo" and the different cuts of beef. The variety of meets and to be able to taste so many differents flavors in one dinner is a real party for your mouth. You have to make a real effort to have dessert...

Yes it is expensive, yes there is a long waiting line if you just decide to walk-in... But this is BRAZIL!!!
I have been to Fogo de Chao in Sao Paulo in Brazil and this is 99% the same... If I could make a suggestion: Fogo de Chao Beverly Hills should add more cachaca on the drink list and learn the brazilian way of slicing lemon for a real brazilian caipirinha! Only 2 brands (and not the best from brazil...) is not enough for such a real brazilian place.

The meat is super tender, super tasty, super cooked, the buffet is nice and with quality and tasty products, the waiters are very nice and attentive! Valet parking is efficient and fast.

If you think about a nice brazilian night with athentic churrascaria, this is the place! If you are looking for a calm, romantic place, you should think of a different option..

Wonderful food - definitely The Place for the meat eater! Salad bar to start was refreshingly different. Same salad with tons of new and different additions, along with cheeses and breads. All was fresh and delicious. Then, the meat... All prepared to perfection and sliced right at your table. 15 different meats are delivered to your table one-by-one from filet mignon to leg of lamb to pork, chicken and sausage. All bar-b-qued on skewers. Sides included plantains and potatos, but I could only fit in a small bite of each because there was so much food. A bit pricey, and we were absolutely stuffed when we left, so not a regular hang out for us, but a fun and delicious treat. We'll be back!
