Prime Dining. Why Dallas steakhouses are a cut above the rest... The grilled meats of Brazil are almost as famous as "The Girl from Ipanema." Visitors to Dallas now have a wonderful selection of restaurants where the traditional churrascaria (barbecue pit) style of preparation can be sampled. Fogo de Chao pioneered the Brazilian steak trend in the late 1990s. Here, traditional gauchos slice an incredible variety of mouthwatering meats from grilled skewers onto your plate. If you don't flip the small coaster from the green (more meat, please) to the red (take a break) side, your plate can be full in minutes of everything from bacon-wrapped chicken, picanha (rump roast), sausage, garlic sirloin, leg of lamb, top sirloin, pork and more.
