We had dinner here recently and noted a gluten allergy on the reservation. Our server was aware of this when we sat down and explained that the only chicken legs were off limits from the meat offerings as they are marinated in beer. Everything else, as well as the salad bar, was safe.

Were were given some small bread rolls which are naturally gluten free since they are made with cheese and tapioca. The meal also comes with mashed potatoes, polenta fries and fried plantains. I asked if they used a shared fryer and the manager came over to confirm that they do not fry any gluten items in the fryer.

Food was very good. The lamb options were incredible. Some cuts were a little tough, so start with small tastes and then settle on the best options. Salad bar had a mound of candies bacon which was addictive. I did see what I believe to be croutons near some of the salad options, so keep in mind some things could have some cc. I had no reactions other than being uncomfortably full.

Carnivore’s delight. Tried this restaurant while visiting Boston. A good place to go when you’re hungry! Majority of the menu is gluten free. The manager came over and spoke with us about our their practices and what was not safe. Staff seemed to have conflicting opinions on the grilled zucchini’s status so we steered clear of it.

Delicious!! Almost everything is gf except chicken legs ... if you ask for sausages from the back I will bring them out where they haven’t touched the chicken legs. Also lots of choices that are dairy free, including soup that we never get (this one is made with coconut milk). Excellent service and excellent food. Highly recommend!

Nice salad bar, many options without gluten - in fact very few with any! I didn't have any of the meat, but the very specific allergy Lust they provided showed only one having gluten - so that's 15+ without.

I visited this past weekend. 100% GF salad bar. The only meat option I couldn't have were the chicken drumsticks b/c they're marinated in beer. There are a decent amount of GF dessert options. But the plantains that they bring you with the meat service are GF and they're yummy enough to serve as dessert (and you can get as much as you want)! The complimentary cheese bread is also GF and absolutely divine. I did not feel limited at all at Fogo De Chao and the food was absolutely delicious!

If you have food allergies, they have a comprehensive book that outlines common food allergens in each dish. Just ask the server.

The unique experience is also something fun and to be enjoyed.

If you are a meat lover like I am, this is your place. Brazilian BBQ, where the sides are gluten free! They definitely know their stuff here!

Very good experience. Cheese bread for appetizer, everything in salad bar was gluten free except for the bread. Croutons for salad were made from the cheese bread. Mashed potatoes they bring to the table is gluten free. All meats were gluten free except drumsticks.

The service and food were excellent. I told them I was gluten free and pork free and my husband wanted his meat well done. The printed list showing all of the food with the allergens was an extra special touch. They accommodated all of our requests easily and one manager came to the table to make sure we were happy and another manager helped me with the Market table which has a huge array of different cold foods. The drinks all the way to the dessert, they made us feel special with their attention to detail. It's expensive, but worth it to splurge every once in a while so I would definitely go back.

One of the more knowledgable Brazilian steakhouses in terms of what GF people can and can’t have in terms of the meats. Chicken wings battered in beer. Otherwise other meats just cooked with salt. Salad bar involves some navigating and some dishes seem to have butter. Overall good experience. No issues.

We had dinner here six days ago and had what they call the “full experience.” The server brought me a GF menu, which was two sheets of paper, but then came back to take it away before we began eating. Given that they bring meat dishes to you continually, I thought that was strange. One star off because I had to remember the items I couldn’t have (fortunately there weren’t a lot). The meats that I had were wonderful, and I especially enjoyed the side of polenta. Absolutely no reaction.
