So I agree with the previous reviewer. You have to reallyyy enjoy meat, red meat to fully get the experience Fogo de Chao has to offer. Although, they have a great salad bar for the vegetarians, at a lower price but c'mon, this place is about the meat!
Fogo is an all-you-can-eat steakhouse with unlimited sides, salad and steak, ribs, lamb, chicken, sausage. This is how it works. Everyone pays per head ($49.50) and you get a ""coaster"" where one side is red and the other side is green. Of course, green means go so they keep bringing you meat. When you want a break, flip it to red. Now when it's on green, beware you will be interrupted with huge slabs of meat on gigantic skewers with guys dressed in gauchos and big knives. You request how you like the meat, rare to well, and they'll slice off a little piece of heaven just for you. Also, all the sides (mashed potatoes, fried polenta, fried plantains and something in the form of a popover) are all unlimited as well.
So this is generally how my feast goes. I spend a few minutes eating some of the salad bar which features awesome potato salad and chicken salad! But I quickly eat up that plate and prepare for the feast that is about to happen. My favorite choice is the house sirloin, served rare. I ate the most slices of that! So tender and juicy. As stated before, there are a lot of different meats they offer and when you see something you like, shout and they'll be right there, ready to give you as much or little as you want.
Now, there are a few places like this around the DC area, Chima being one. I want to say I like the ambiance better at Fogo but the salad bar is better at Chima's. Regardless, this is for the carnivores of the carnivores and you must prepare yourself for such a meal. Upon arriving home, I tend to crash immediately in a meat coma. This is a good thing of course! It's a must go for everyone I know.
