Fogo de Chao- all the meat you could possibly eat!

Fogo de Chao is an authentic Brazilian steakhouse, located at 1337 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. It also has other locations around the United States. It is certainly a 5 star restaurant. It is a bit pricy though- at $50 a person for dinner, but it does go a long way. This restaurant is like a fancy buffet. The salad bar is exquisite, having only the finest cuts of meats and cheeses along with a variety of salads. My favorite item at the salad bar is the apple raison salad. Then after the salad bar you return to your seat (a waiter is always there to pull your chair out for you when your about to sit down) and there is a red and green sided coaster. Once you flip it to green the meat starts coming! "Gauchos" start bringing you the individual, excellently seasoned, meats on the menu which are, Top Sirloin, Filet Mignon, Rib Eye, Bottom Sirloin, Beef Ribs, Pork Ribs, Lamb Chops, bacon wrapped Chicken Breasts, Pork Loin encrusted with parmesan cheese and Sausage. All the meats are so juicy and tender. Your meal also includes an endless amount of side dishes including warm cheese bread, crispy polenta, mashed potatoes and caramelized bananas. There is nothing bad to say about this place, the atmosphere is great, the food is superb & never ending!
