    never been to JJ's. I've been to the Fogo in Minneapolis. It's definitely an experience. The food isn't actually all that fantastic, but there's so much of it, and such variety that it sort of makes up for that. If you do end up there, make sure to drink tons of caipirinhas. Those things are addicting.

    You can go to Jimmy John's anywhere. I'd choose Fogo de Chao.

    On tripadvisor, JJ's is 3rd and Fogo is #5 so either one would be great.

    Longboard is north of the city and is our take on JJ's. Fogo is fine if you are in the plaza area but there are lots of great local stuff in that area as well.

    up eating at JJs, well worth the $$$. I'm sure Fogo is good, but all the reviews seemed to be centered on the quantity of near, JJs def had quality. Can't afford to eat there everytime, but great for special occasions.
    Heading to Kellys tom to watch the bball game.
    Oh, and the avg price on trip advisor was.way off. It said $30 avg a person

    Fogo is great, be sure you come hungry to take full advantage. Everything is high quality and there is so damn much of it.

    With the caveat that I've been to neither of these, unless JJ's is actually JimmyJohns...I read "Fogo de Chao" and thought...that sounds...........a bit odd, or queer might be another homonym of odd. Then I read....

    And thought...hmm, that also sounds a bit odd....or queer if you will. I was just about to completely pass over this Fogo place when I saw....


    Well....this perhaps changes things, let's take a look at their website....ahhh...gaucho cooking. I see...take a peek at the online menu...3 pages: First page, meat. Second page divided into quarters, 1/4 page devoted to drinks. 1/4 page devoted to side dishes. 1/4 page devoted to desserts. And just for good measure...what do we put on the last 1/4...more meat. Third page, locations.

    00clone approved.
