Where are you eating lunch or dinner tonight? We’re recommending Fogo de Chao’s new Uptown steakhouse, which debuts today, Monday, February 13 (and here’s how to snag a free meal)


 

Brazilian churrascaria Fogo de Chão adds its newest gaucho steakhouse to its growing portfolio when it debuts its Uptown Dallas restaurant today, February 13.

The space is small by Fogo standards, roughly 200 seats, but the Dallas location is the first to offer a stand-alone cocktail bar. I’ve been disappointed in most of my US churrascaria experiences, finding the proteins chewy and too salty, but not here. The meats were all top-quality, flavorful and offered as a wide assortment of roasted meats that included sausages, lamb, beef and seafood. The all-you-can-eat steakhouse is also notable for its “market table,” a large salad bar loaded with vegetarian options, bacon, cheeses, bacon, composed and tossed salads, really good bacon, and feijoada, a traditional Brazilian black bean stew. Don’t eat meat? There’s now a Chilean sea bass option. There’s also a nice selection of reasonably priced wines, which will help you get through dinner if a vegetarian at your table wants to make noises about all that meat.

Unlike traditional steakhouses, there’s no need to peruse a menu, flag down a server and wait thirty minutes for the kitchen to send out food. At Fogo, waiters arrive with a wide assortment of meats nearly as soon as guests are seated, which means if you’re hurrying to get to a Mavs or Stars game (like we were), you can get in and out in under an hour if you wish.

The Dallas-based Fogo de Chão currently operates 47 locations worldwide. The first US location opened in Addison more than twenty years ago. Here’s how you can check out Fogo today or tomoroow and receive a free dinner.

“Fogo de Chao” means “fire of ground” in Portuguese and refers to the traditional Brazilian cowboy method of roasting meats over an open fire. The restaurant will be open for both lunch ($33) and dinner ($47) beginning today.

2619 McKinney Avenue, Suite 150, (214) 720-2777
