Rodizio restaurants

»Fogo de Chão
Av. Moreira Guimarães, 964 - Moema - Phone: (11) 5056-1795
Av. dos Bandeirantes, 538 - Vila Olímpia - Phone: (11) 5505-0791

Appointed by Veja magazine as the best barbecue rodizio in São Paulo; see list of best restaurants in São Paulo.
The name means Fire on the Floor. This is the way that the gauchos prepared barbecue: because they had to make it without ovens or grills, they carved a hole in the floor, stuffed it with wood and set it on fire. The restaurant still employs a similar method (see photo here).
The restaurant has branches in three Brazilian cities (São Paulo, Belo Horizonte and Brasilia) and seven American cities (including Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Washington DC; see list here). In Brazil, the price is way lower, and the meat is probably better prepared.
