This is my Dad's favorite restaurant in Chicago. Whenever he comes to visit, he practically begs to get their whole roasted chicken dinner (which is a crazy good value with multiple goodies on the side) every night. We live a half block away, and can smell the chickens on their spits All. Day. Long. This is usually an enticing aroma (except for the two times that I've been pregnant and had the one food aversion of chicken. Which I fully admit is random.) But seriously, it (usually) smells incredible. Which is good. Because it's seriously a non-stop Chicken On A Spit operation. Even more randomly, my favorite dish is the charred lamb.

I came here for dinner with some friends for the first time and all the good things I've heard about Fogo de Chao were true. I tried so many different types of meat that I can't say which was my favorite. Their garlic mashed potatoes were really really good. The salad bar looked to have a vast assortment of greens, but I'm a simple salad person so it was more than enough for me. The way they serve their meats is unique and the atmosphere was charged with many conversations. All the good comes with a high price tag, but overall, I'd say it's well worth the occasional visit. You won't be disappointed.
i live in nw indiana and decided to try something different, so me and the wife looked up chicago restaurants and decided on this place. its about 45 min-1 hr drive for us, but i have to say that it was worth it. we've been back 3 times, each time with new friends and they've returned also. great food great service. Peruvian cuisine is delicious. Alot of seafood infused dishes as well as beef and chicken dishes. many different ceviche options as well.
