I went out last year to Fogo de Chao for Christmas dinner and it was awesome! The people there really treat you well, the food is great, the salad bar is awesome, and you really feel like a valued person and guest.

The only negative thing I can say is that they sometimes go a little overboard in making sure you have everything you need – Meaning, every waiter and waitress who walks by asks if you need anything… Yes! A second to digest pulllleeeaseee!

If you’re looking for a good website to find out who’s open on Christmas, go to http://www.drinkupaustin.com. They’ll have all the listings for places that are open on that day, and also have all the specials that are going as well!

Great site! Cheers!
