does anyone know what is going into the old gauchos building on nw expressway?

That location hasn't exactly had a whole lot of success...Although I think Gaucho's might have made it with better management since the food was pretty solid

My prediction...The third Old Chicago location

Gauchos was okay.. sort of a Fogo clone. Fogo is MUCH better.

-- and I realize also more expensive, but I think Fogo'd do pretty darned well over in the Penn Square/Nichols Hills area.

Guess that was my first and only Brazilian steakhouse experience so nothing to compare it to...Plus I love me some meat so I was pretty much in heaven when the meat guys (Can you say that in a straight voice) kept coming by

Is Fogo a national chain mid?

Fogo is an 8-restaurant national chain.

Welcome to Fogo de Chão (

If you think Gauchos was good, Fogo'd be nirvana. There's one in Dallas right over there by the Gallaria with all of those other restaurants.

Oh my lord that menu is nice

If I can get my wife to bypass Ruth's Chris I will try that out next time we head down south

I think we'll see an announcement here soon if slackmeyer doesn't beat us to it. They've been renovating that building for the last month or two and it has a completely new facade.
