While Fogo de Chão is a chain, no matter where you find one of these restaurants, it consistently provides the best Brazilian dining experience in the area. Baltimore is no exception–this meat-lover’s haven has some of the most succulent pieces of meat in the city. They slice the meats right onto your plate, so you can get a taste of as much as you want.

Chicken Rico is a super casual restaurant with an emphasis on good food, great prices, and generous portions. You get your food on Styrofoam plates at a takeout counter, but don’t let this grab-and-go atmosphere make you think this South American food is anything short of flavorful, authentic, and downright incredible.

We Love Their: Chicken with a Side of Rice

Peruvian cuisine doesn’t get much better than Puerto 511. The décor is minimalistic but has an artful quaintness inspired by the region, and it’s BYOB too, so don’t forget to pick up some adult beverages on your way over. The presentation of each dish has a masterful touch of beautification and sophistication, and all the seafood dishes are locally sourced and freshly caught.
