Brazillian Steakhouse

Anything else in town that does it in the style of fogo de chau?

      My family tried Rodizio Grill the day it opened. It's cheaper than Fogo but the food and service were a step down. Fogo is well worth the additional $10 or so per person for its variety, quality of food and superior service.

        Good feedback. I can only stuff my face with that much food every once in awhile, so Fogo will continue to fill my needs for churrascarias.

        I tried the place two weeks ago and didn't care to write much about it. Guess now I will. Service was slow and the options not as good as Fogo. They had trouble keeping the meats rare and medium rare on the skewers. As far as lamb goes they only had leg of lamb. Tables were a little narrow and they could have kept the waters filled a little better and the dirty plates cleared a little sooner.

        I don't think it's a $32.99 place. Maybe at half that I'd go for lunch, but not for dinner.

          How much is lunch? and do they do lunch on weekends...Fogo doesn't.
