Fogo de Chao Opens On International Drive
The Brazilian churrascaria scene in Orlando just got hotter!
Last week, international chain Fogo de Chao opened their 18th U.S. location. Situated just south of Sand Lake Road in International Drive, and just down the road from their closest competitor Texas de Brazil, Fogo de Chao is now open for both lunch and dinner daily.
With fifteen different cuts of delicious meats ranging from filet mignon to chicken to pork sausages, there's something here to tempt the tastebuds of any carnivore. The churrascaria uses simple preparations and open-flame grilling to bring out the best in the meats they serve. Should you happen to be dining with those who are less meat-centric, the salad bar is second to none, with a wide array of cheeses, cold cuts, and no shortage of incredible vegetables. Filling up on the salad bar alone is a danger, to be sure, but a delicious one.
The location is already getting excellent reviews and has great ratings on UrbanSpoon.com despite only being open for a few days.
Prices for this all-you-can-eat gourmet extravaganza are surprisingly reasonable, especially if you go for lunch, when the same menu offerings are available for a little more than half the price of dinner. Fogo de Chao also boasts an extensive wine list as well as a small but excellent dessert menu (if you are able to save room).
Dinner is $42.50 per person, Salad Bar Only is $19.50 per person. Lunch is priced at $26.50 per person, with the Salad Bar Only option remaining the same at $19.50.
