Fogo de Chao - Brazilian Churasco, DC

For my husband's birthday, I took him to a famous Brazilian Churasco restaurant in DC called Fogo de Chao.  We've had many Brazilian Churasco experiences before but never tried this one since the place rarely gives discounts or coupons.  But for a birthday celebration, I figured we could get fancy a bit!

The restaurant sits right on Pennsylvania Ave, so it was nearly impossible to find parking.  Luckily, they have valet parking for $7, so we took adavantage of that.  We arrived super early for dinner since his work is nearby.

I didn't take any pictures of the food since we were busy visiting salad bars and devouring endless meats the moment we sat down.  So this is going to be a short review.  Overall, I like Chima better since they have special pricing all the time and they definitely wins out on the salad bar selection.  Also, I find Fogo de Chao's meats a bit salty.  The filet magnon was a nice touch on the all you can eat menu though.  The lamb chops were tasty, but the lamb leg was dry and mediocre.

Of course, by the end of the night we both felt like we've had our meat portion for the whole week.  While it was well worth it, be ready to shell out 100+ for two if you're going to visit for dinner!

FoodiePop's rating on Brazilian Churasco: 3.7/5

  1. I like Chima better too because they have soup and fish.
