Menu
We are an authentic Churrascaria (Brazilian Steakhouse) from Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil which features superior service, unrivaled cuisine and a unique dining experience.

You will be pampered by our authentic Gaucho chefs who come to your tableside to carve a variety of succulent meats right off their skewers.  Our featured meats have been slow-roasted over an open flame and lightly seasoned to preserve the unique taste of each tender cut.

Adding to our unique dining experience, you will be treated to a sumptuous, gourmet salad and vegetable bar featuring over 30 items including imported cheeses, cured meats, fresh vegetables and more.  We complement your meal with traditional Brazilian side dishes such as caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, seasoned mashed potatoes and our world-famous cheese bread (pao de queijo).

No meal is complete without trying a refreshing caipirinha, something from our award-winning wine list or one of our decadent desserts.

The food is always great but, had it not been for tony, service seemed grouchy/relatively hurried. Most likely because we showed up ten minutes befor close however, Tony was very friendly and went the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of. Jade was also quite helpful. Definitely be back, overall

This place is pretty awesome if you LOVELOVELOVE meat (obviously). They also have a pretty rockin' salad bar and you can opt to pay less if you just want salad bar options (which is nice if you are in a big party and some of them don't like meat as much). Last time I was here the salad bar was running low on a few things and my caipirinha was oversaturated with lime wedges. Also the a-la-carte desserts are a little pricey for what you get (but still worth it even though by the time dessert comes you've just consumed your bodyweight in meat).

I ate here at SXSW and had probably the most amazing meal of my life. So many delicious meats. This is a must try!

I cannot give this place enough stars. It is, without hyperbole, the best steaks in Austin. I have never had better lamb. Service is always impeccable; the servers work as a team, and must use some system of hand signals for they often have your request to your table before they even finish speaking with you. The salad bar is extensive, but don't fill up, because you will want to try each one of their two dozen flame licked meats.

Wasn't exactly prepared for the price (which was a lot), but that wasn't even the worst part of the restaurant. The meat that was served to me had a few good bites but a decent portion of it was just so fatty that I could almost not swallow it. Their selection was supposedly quite large, but I maybe saw six of the sixteen meats, and one I saw served to one table, but somehow completely missed mine. Their wine selection, while decent boasts no Brazilian wines at all, which is a bit disappointing and even the Riesling I got was okay at best. The dessert was actually the only thing I liked about the restaurant. The "salad bar" offered three mixed salads and potato salad and two kinds of pasta salad, but for paying $50 dollars for a meal and salad bar options, I would expect salads pre-dressed with a good dressing, not ranch, french, thousand island, and an (I'm assuming) avocado dressing. I was already pretty disappointed with the food and wine and the service makes you feel uncomfortable because they don't really leave you alone, the price was just the cherry on top of my disappointment.

Food and service still rocks!! Except the new valet. They failed to open the door for my woman and didn't even fully greet us. They act too busy and can't slow down for better customer service. Other then that, place is crazy good.

Day before Valentine's Day at Dinner time. Drive up to Fogo de Chao to what looked like a traffic accident. Turns out it was the valet parking line. We walk in to find all the waiting area overflowed. I feel peace knowing we have a reservation which i triple confirmed. I also called ahead to let them know we where on our way. As I am in line to speak to the hosts it's so overcrowded that people start getting in front of me. Finally get the host's attention. We are asked to wait so we stand on a corner by the cooking meat and a dinning couple with our baby and toddler. They take 20 minutes to seat us and that was only because my husband asks them to give us a table he can see was unused. They originally came up to us saying they had a table for two ready for us, even though I had said in the reservation we where four and when we walked in I told the host that as well. Finally get seated.The so-talked-up-cheese rolls are cold. The waiter lets us go without drinks even though he has great conversations with his other two tables right next to ours. The meat doesn't taste extraordinary and the meat servers did not come a lot. Once a meat server does come we have to ask him to send more our way. The salad bar has empty trays so I have to make more than one trip to get what i wanted, leaving my children at the table so much is a huge inconvenience. Finally, we want the check and the waiter is no where to be found. Couldn't get out of there soon enough. Didn't even want to eat the meat after the whole experience. We just wanted to leave. We went to sonic after for some ice-cream to cool off and let the disappointment melt off of us. On that night they gave all parting guest a coupon for a free dinner next visit, but we wouldn't go back if they paid us. Texas De Brazil was so much better.

My best friend and I dined there on Friday, May 30, to celebrate her last night in Austin (she was here on vacation). I had a reservation for 7:00pm, and they were ready for - escorted us straight to our table. That set the tone for the evening. The food was wonderful, the salad bar well stocked and diverse, and the meat was tender, flavorful, and very tasty. The most exceptional part, however, was the staff and service. The teamwork and attitudes the staff displayed were well above average and transformed an excellent evening out into a truly memorable event. My thanks to the staff!
