Fogo de Chão to Bring Rodízio-Style Dining to Oklahoma City

Brazilian steakhouse chain Fogo de Chão is set to open a new location in Oklahoma City later this year, bringing its signature rodízio-style dining experience to the area. The 8,439-square-foot restaurant will be located at 13710 Pennsylvania Ave. in Memorial Square, increasing the number of churrascaria-style Brazilian steakhouses in Oklahoma City to four.

Fogo de Chão is known for its all-you-can-eat experience, with servers carving various grilled meats tableside in the traditional Brazilian rodízio style. The Oklahoma City location will feature an extensive menu of proteins cooked over an open flame, a central salad and sides bar, and premium add-ons like a 42-day aged 32-ounce Long-Bone Tomahawk Ribeye and à la carte seafood selections.

In addition to the main dining area, the new restaurant will offer outdoor and enclosed patio seating, as well as a dry-aged meat locker for in-house aging. Guests can also enjoy All-Day Happy Hour specials in the dining room, patio, and Bar Fogo areas, with discounted prices on Brazilian beers ($5), South American wines ($8), and Brazilian-inspired cocktails ($10).

"We are excited to introduce Fogo to the Oklahoma market and expand our Southwest footprint with our first restaurant in Oklahoma City," said Barry McGowan, chief executive officer of Fogo de Chão. "Our restaurant will serve as a memorable addition to Oklahoma City's dining scene and we look forward to sharing the Culinary Art of Churrasco with new guests in OKC soon."

Fogo de Chão's expansion into Oklahoma City comes as the popularity of Brazilian steakhouses continues to grow in the United States. The rodízio-style dining experience, which originated in southern Brazil, has become a billion-dollar market in the US, with chains like Fogo de Chão and Texas de Brazil leading the way. As more diners seek out unique and interactive culinary experiences, the demand for churrascaria-style restaurants is expected to remain strong.

The opening of Fogo de Chão in Oklahoma City marks a significant milestone for the Brazilian steakhouse chain as it continues to expand its presence in the Southwest. With its extensive menu, unique dining experience, and commitment to quality, Fogo de Chão is poised to make a lasting impact on the city's culinary landscape.
