Fogo de Chao? [moved from Washington D.C. & Baltimore board]

I'll admit, I'm a bit embarrassed to ask this .. but has anyone been to Fogo de Chao lately? I think the last time I was there was 7 years ago, and all I remember was watching as the guys in the group attempted to induce meat sweats ... not the best dining memory :)

Anyone, we're looking for a macho-dinner place that would be a lot of fun. It is a bunch of people (mainly guys) who enjoy good food and are tossing around the idea of Fogo de Chao (I sense a macho-style eating contest is in the works).

Any input on whether the food is still good here would be much appreciated!

  1. I would never go out of my way to eat there, but I'm not a meat eater. Last time I was there, I mostly attacked the salad bar and had maybe one piece of the garlic filet (which was quite good, actually). That being said, if you're in the mood for a dude dinner, it may be the place to go.

    I would throw out there, though, that I've heard lots of good things about Hill Country BBQ on 7th, so if you could transition dude dinner from meat on sticks to meat on the bone, it could be a fun, low-key, less-expensive way to do it.

    1. re: katecm

      I went 2 years ago for my birthday and had a great time the salad bar was well stocked and the meat was cooked to perfection the price is a little steep especially if you are not a big meat eater.

      "Meat Sweats"?

    2. It is the same as it was when it opened. A lot of salty meat and a good salad bar. If you like being "manly" and do not mind the meat sweats this is the place,
