    Excellent. Even have gluten free delicious roles (the same as what everyone else eats too!) almost everything on their vast salad bar is GF. And almost every single meat is GF too. Well trained staff who can easily direct you to what is GF. Almost everything in the whole place is GF.

    Manager didn't tell me everything that had gluten in it because I avoided all of the foods he said, but I still definitely got gluten some how. Food tastes great, but definitely made me very sick afterwards, and for 2 people at lunch on a week day and no extra anything except we had 2 teas, it was $100. not worth it for getting sick.

    The salad bar was delicious and I avoided any options adjoining "glutened" selections such as the pasta salads. The meats were plentiful - just no chicken or lamb for us celiacs - but overall I felt the price was excessive and for that reason will not return. But that is a separate issue from the plentiful GF options.

    After the explanation from the host I thought I was safe with the meat here. One of the chickens available was soaked in beer. Had a sinus headache that night and for a few days following. So, just be proactive in asking about every thing you put on your plate. Other than that, was a delicious meal.

    A manager will come to speak to you about the GF options, but it's almost unnecessary because everything but the obvious breads and 3/12 or so meats is gluten free. And did I mention the GF cheesy bread? It's pricey, but 100% worth every penny for the amazing selection!

    Great food and I did not get glutened from the meat or salad bar. Servers were knowledge. However, service was variable and we felt ignored sometimes. Especially for how much we paid. Will go back again hoping for a better experience. We went to the one in Las Vegas and they were amazing! Polenta fries were great and love the gf rolls!

    This was our favorite restaurant on our recent trip to DC. We actually ate there twice. It is expensive but worth every penny. Since we are GF and DF there were only 3 meats we could not have: crusted pork loin, chicken legs, and the sausage. There were probably at least 10 other meats we could eat and they were so delicious. They also brought out polenta with no parmesan on it for us. And they walked us through the salad buffet and explained what was safe and what was not safe. You will definitely be stuffed and really enjoy your experience - highly recommend.

    I couldn't write a review fast enough about this place just loved it!!! The manager was very aware of celiac and took me around the Buffett and showed me what I could and couldn't eat and then went through the meats with me so awesome. The food was fantastic worth every penny! If I ever find another Fongo de Chao on my travels I will eat there again. Recommend it to anyone who has celiac or who is gluten free:) I had no problems. ( I always wait until the next morning to write my reviews lol)

    I so wish I could give this restaurant a higher score. The food was delicious! But unfortunately, I still got glutened. They have a salad bar, which I was very careful not to get any dressings or gluten containing items. They have cheese rolls that are gluten free, which was very exciting. They continuously bring different kinds of meat to your table, which is awesome! But some of the meats are braised in beer. There is a big risk of cross contamination. I told the server about my celiac and he didn't seem incredibly knowledgeable about what items contained gluten. Other locations say they send a manager over to talk the customer through items to avoid that contain gluten. This location did not send the manager over. The meat was very good, but I will not be back due to cross contamination.

    Knowledgable and attentive staff, unique dining experience, and delicious gluten free food! Almost all food offered is naturally gluten free, the only no-nos are the French bread and 1 or 2 pasta salads on the salad buffet and one of the chicken meats, but with so many other options, you'll be too stuffed with all the tasty sides, meats and salad options, you won't be missing anything!

    Best ever tasting gf rolls, but something glutened me. The staff said stay away from chicken, sausage and bread at salad bar. I ate only meats, cheese and 1 bite of the gf roll. I suspect a spice rub had wheat. I was very clear expressing my needs, but was Still cross contaminated somehow... Too bad

    Wow, this place is great. I told my server about my allergy and a manager came to talk to me about what my options were and walked me around the salad bar to point out what to avoid there as well. The only meat you have to avoid is the chicken. Most of the salad bar is okay too except for the obvious stuff — croutons, pasta, etc. The entire experience was amazing. The staff is really attentive and nice. The food was delicious and so was the wine. Well worth the price.

They were extremely accommodating, serving my table's polenta fries without the parmesan and walking us through the gluten and dairy free meats. It was expensive, but it was 100% worth it. It is all-you-can eat and very high quality.

    *Almost* everything in the place is gluten free. When I told the server I had a gluten allergy he had the manager come over to speak to me. She (the manager) showed me the two meats that were not gluten free due to a marinade or rub (the sausage and the bacon wrapped chicken leg and filet) and walked me through the salad bar to show me what was not gluten free. Several of the salad dressings she could not guarantee were safe due to label concerns, but there was a selection of oils and vinegars so it really didn't matter to me. The sides and table bread are also gluten free - mashed potatoes, fried bananas and fried polenta sticks. The bread is traditional Brazilian Pao de Queso, which is made with cassava flour (naturally gluten free). I should warn you, though - that bread is highly addictive. They also have Mexican Coca Cola (made with real cane sugar) in a glass bottle.

    The waiters were very knowledgeable; I said I was gluten intolerant and he knew exactly what I could and couldn't have. Basically, the chicken legs and some of the premade salads on the salad bar were the only off-limits items. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant, but to be fair, you're not going there for the mashed potatoes. The meats were all very good, flavorful and cooked well. The fried polenta was delicious, and of course, the tapioca cheese bread was excellent. I love going to a place that offers gluten-free desserts, too. The creme brulee was lovely, and the coffee was outstanding. A return visit is definitely in order.

    I'm giving this a 4 because they did a great job gluten free wise. Paul, the manager, was fantastic - he understood allergies and ensured we were taken care of. For the restaurant overall I'd give the restaurant a 3. We were at Fogo de Chao in Washington DC 6 months ago and their restaurant was much better. I felt like the restaurant in Chicago skimped a bit - the meat didn't come to our table as frequently and we ordered Caipirinha and we were asked if we wanted the premium / smoother version and we said no - just regular. There was not much alcohol in the ones we received. One of us lived in Brazil and knows how they should taste. They were perfect in Washington. For a $200 meal for 4, it should be perfect,

    This is probably my favorite restaurant. My husband and I always take a trip downtown for my birthday so we can have dinner here. Even before I went GF. It is a meat-lover's paradise. They are incredibly accommodating. Just notify your server that you need to eat GF and they send the manager over to let you know what very few things you should not eat. When I went, the only things I couldn't eat were the salad dressings (because they are not made in house and therefore they cannot guarantee their safety), a pasta salad on the salad bar, and chicken that is marinated in beer. EVERYTHING else is safe to eat: HUGE and delicious salad bar (I use balsamic vinegar in place of the dressing), endless amounts of meats, fried polenta, caramelized bananas, mashed potatoes, and best of all the Brazilian cheese bread. In my opinion, this place is simply the best.

    Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. All meats except chicken are gf although I would be wary of the sausage. They bring it around with the chicken (so they touch) but they were able to bring it to me separately when I asked. All side dishes are gf and are so so so delicious. Salad bar always has the risk of cross contamination due to clumsy people but I found it fairly clean. Besides, who can pass up a whole plate of prosciutto and cheeses?
