Fogo de Chao Gift Card Giveaway #FogoRosemont

In 1979, Fogo® began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, their gaucho chefs still expertly grill 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service.


They recently opened a Rosemont location, and I got to experience their excellent cuisine thanks to Chicagonista Live!


We first learned how to grill the meats the Gaucho way before we got to dig in. We had coasters by our plates to let the waiters know if we wanted more food or if we wanted them to stop offering it. The first thing we started off on was the salad bar.


I had more on this plate but I forgot to take the picture before I started eating! After salad, we started with the meat:


Now, I took a little bit of everything. I couldn’t tell you what any of it was but it was all good. However, if you want to be choosy they actually have a menu just for the meat!


Now, they tell you to pace yourself. They aren’t lying. I hate to admit this but my eyes were wayyyyyyy bigger than my stomach. It was so much meaty goodness. They had lots of fun other stuff to try too:


They even had I wine cellar there with so much wine:


We finishes our meal with dessert:


It was soooo good. As for pricing, lunch is $26.50 and dinner is $46.50 at the Rosemont location, with children 6 and under free and children 7-12 half price. Throughout the month of October, you can get a complimentary dessert if you mention ChicagonistaLIVE. This is valid only at the Rosemont location (#FogoRosemont). I highly recommend that cake!!

ChicagonistaLIVE will be broadcasting live from their Rosemont location on Tuesday October 8 at 2pm CST with guests TTW’s Check, Please! new host Cat D’ Orio and Guy-a-titian David Grotto. They have also teamed with me for a $50 Fogo de Chao gift card for one lucky reader. The giveaway will end on October 8 and the winner will be selected from the comments in this post and announced live on the ChicagonistaLIVE show!

Just leave me a comment below letting me know what part of eating here would you like best!


  1. I would like to try this place. I heard its a great place! Lots of different meats and to come hungry. So I would like to take my boyfriend on a date there!

  2. My brother has raved about this restaurant for the past few years. I haven’t had that kind of money to spend. But I would love to try all of the different meats they offer!

  3. All those years passing by the downtown location, I’ve yet to go to Fogo de Chao. Kind of have no excuse now that they’re opening one in Rosemont, which is only 10 minutes from my home.

    As much as that cake looks SO good, the meats have always made want to try the place out. From your pictures, it all looks very appetizing.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  4. I would love to go and have all kinds of meat. I don’t know if there would be room for dessert, but that would be delicious, too. Would be an awesome date night.

  5. Fogo is amazing! Ive only had it once after my graduation, Id love to take my husband out for our anniversary dinner (he would be in heaven!)

  6. Actually, I LOVE all the cheeses! They have such a selection of unusual cheese. You just don’t find that other places!

  7. The salad bar is wonderful, but the best part is all the wonderful roasted meats and those little cheese rolls.
