Oh boy, if you've never been to Fogo de Chao now's your chance.

Fogo De Chao just opened in Bridgewater Commons Mall

The Brazilian steakhouse just opened in Bridgewater Commons, according to My Central Jersey.

Opening day was Wednesday, June 24. It's only the third New Jersey location.

If you're familiar with the Bridgewater Commons area, it's near The Cheesecake Factory and Uncle Julio's.


You can get to it through the mall or there's an outside entrance as well.

Outdoor dining is available

Now that the weather is nicer, there's an outdoor patio too.

Dining at Fogo de Chao is a unique experience. You're served meat...and lots of it.

grilling steaks on flaming grill and shot with selective focus

At the new Bridgewater location, you'll get to watch chefs hand-preparing and grilling a vast selection of meat.

Are you ready for the list of all the meat?

Here's what I found on the new Bridgewater location menu:

Filet Mignon (tenderloin)

Bone-in-Beef Ancho (Bone-in ribeye)

Fraldinha (Bottom Sirloin)

Lombo (pork)

Grilled pork
Somsak Sudthangtum

Pichana (prime part of top sirloin)

Medalhoes with Bacon (bacon-wrapped chicken and steak)

Cordeiro (lamb Pichana, chops)

Torresmo (Pork Belly)

Costela (Beef Ribs)

Alcatra (Top Sirloin)

Linguica (Spicy Pork Sausage)

Bisteca De Porco (Double Bone-in Pork Chop)

Frango (chicken)

Whoa...that's quite a list.

My advice...save your appetite. You can try as many as you'd like.

Chefs will hand carve meat at your table

The chefs will come right to your table and carve it for you.

I've been to the Philadelphia location and was full for days after.

It was the best meat I've ever had.

I can't wait to dine at the new Bridgewater location.

It's fun with a group...bring your friends.
