OMG! What a Face Shocked cyclops

I went to this place today for lunch. It's a Brazillian Churrascaria. Buffet style all you can eat meat.

I am sooo stuffed. Two filet mignon's, filet minon wrapped in bacon, rack of lamb, lambs leg, garlic beef, chicken wrapped in bacon, ribs... and that's just some of the meat I had.

The service was AMAZING. Clean plates, refills on drinks, recommendations by the goucho's on meats.... it was a wonderful experience.

Lunch is around $26. We were drinking some Brazillian soda by the can (which is priced per can) and we had dessert.

$330ish for five people with food, drinks, and dessert. Oh yeah... the creme broulee was awesome.

Operating under the unique service concept of espeto corrido, which translates from Portuguese as "continuous service," Fogo de Chão satisfies palates and the desire for something original. Instead of ordering from a traditional menu, Fogo de Chão offers a prix-fixe system where guests can sample the entire menu, or just focus on their favorite items.

The lunch and dinner menu features unlimited servings of 15 different delectable cuts of fire-roasted meats, a sumptuous buffet of gourmet salads and fresh-cut vegetables, and a variety of Brazilian side dishes.

Each guest uses a two-sided disk to control the pace of their meal. The green side signals the Gaucho chefs to bring out skewers of sizzling fire-roasted meats to carve at the table. The red side indicates a stopping point. Turning back to green lets the Gaucho chefs know to start offering the meats again.

The traditional side dishes of warm cheese bread, fried bananas, crispy hot polenta and seasoned mashed potatoes are automatically brought to each table and replenished throughout the meal. The restaurant's award-winning wine list, traditional Brazilian beverages, and a variety of decadent desserts complement the experience.

Love this place. Haven't been to the one in chicago, but I went to the one in Houston a few years ago. Didn't need to eat for days afterwards....... although I did anyway.
