Fogo de Chao

This authentic Brazilian-style steakhouse is located on Third Street and offers a flavorful array of menu items cooked in the traditional gaucho way – over open fire pits. When you are seated, you’re given a card that is green on one side and red on the other. Turn your card so the green side is facing up and the flavorful meats will be brought to your tableside and cut for you. When you’ve had enough, flip your card to the red side. Featured menu items include filet mignon, top sirloin, lamb, chicken and pork ribs. To learn more about the Fogo de Chao experience, visit
