I have to disagree on the salad bar. I cook enough meat myself, that the salad bar is a highlight for me in any place like that. It would cost me a fortune in $ and fridge space to have the variety they do.

This place looks amazing, and the nearest one is only 170 miles away.
If I leave now...

This may seem strange, but if I am really hungry I can't eat that much - get full really quickly. If I'm not hungry but in the "yeah - I could eat" stage, I can pack it away.

I am really looking forward to trying the lamb. I have only had one encounter with lamb and that was when I was about 10 - my mom made lamb patties and served it with a side of mint jelly. It looked gross so I sat at the table for 3 hours before I was finally excused. (yes, when I was a kid you couldn't leave the dinner table untill you were excused - oh, and you had to eat what was served - I heard more then once from my mom that she was not a short order cook.

Have been there- get there early for parking. They give you a card- one side red the other green. Green means more food. Dont be afraid to use the red so you can take a break. Too much too fast = full. The lamb and beef are great. Let us know how it went. Have fun and enjoy. Congrats Big Al Hope you have a very Happy B Day

I've never been, but sure have drooled at their adverts. Maybe you'll be making some lamb for the love/hate throwdown after you get back. Pass on a big Happy Birthday to Big Al. I'm sure he'd be just as happy to have a quiet night at home.

If you ever get down to San Antonio, go to Chama Gaucha. They have one in Chicago too. All the flavor and about $10 less than Fogo de Chao. I dont think Chama's salad bar is as good as Fogo's.

Get the picanha and lamb, enjoy the salad bar and fruit, use it to prepare for the meat courses. If possible and they allow you, ask for first cut, it costs more, but allows you the most variety. Not all Brazilian or Argentinian places do this custom, but, it means the meat comes to your table first.

At Chama Gaucha you can do requests. Their filet comes bacon wrapped, they will make some up without bacon and bring it to you.
