It's nearly impossible to find a truly fresh salad at any restaurant in Houston. And it's even harder to find a perfectly done steak. Fogo de Chao does both.

The salad bar has an amazing mix of greens and lettuces, delicious fresh tomatoes, tender asparagus, true Parmigiano Reggiano, aged Manchego, fresh Mozzerella, olives, onions, smoked salmon, salami, prosciutto, and plenty more. Plus a variety of top quality olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The salad bar is a meal in itself.

But then, when you flip your coaster to green, be prepared for meat. I mean plenty of meat. Lots of meat. All you can eat meat. And all of it perfectly cooked. I had sirloin, filet, rib eye, pork ribs, and lamb. Wow, it was delicious. I thought I was a master of the grill at my house. But this is even better.

They have a great wine list too. We had the Trinita Zinfandel, which was about $36. A good deal for a restaurant.

If you like to eat and drink, you'll spend $150 for a dinner for two. But it's worth it. You won't find a fresher salad bar, or better grilled meats in Houston.

Great dining experience, the meat was cooked and seasoned to perfection and served in small portions just what I love since I'm not a meat lover. I can hardly wait to get back to that salad bar...amazing!

We were a party of 6: 5 adults and one child of about 3 years old. Food was not as our expectations: long line to get to the buffet and a narrow selection of meats on the skewers.
The waiters were kind but our personal opinion is that they were too few with regard to the number of tables and of people waiting to be served. We had to ask for the kid's glass and fork.
The check was a little bit overpriced considering the quality, but the good one is that the kid's dinner was complimentary.
I definitely will recommend this restaurant only if you have a huge hunger and you do not mind to wait in line for the appetizers....

Joined a friend for her birthday lunch at Fogo de Chao and it was great! The rolls with the cheese in the center are addictive! The server kept bringing back hot rolls - how could you not eat them?? We decided on just enjoying the self-serve salad bar. It offers a variety of fresh vegetables, chicken salad, apple salad, different samples of cheeses as well as a few hot dishes of scalloped potatoes, rice pilaf with meat, etc. Will definitely go again! Price is more than your typical work day lunch - around $25/pp but well worth it for special occasions!
