A word from Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - San Diego
Fogo de Chão® (fo-go dèe shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, Fogo® began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service.

/>We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.Continued

  • "I like that they offer several varieties and cuts of meat (which is the main reason to eat at a Brazilian steakhouse, right?). The tenderness/taste of each kind varies each visit (this time, the filet mignon was far and away my favorite, while the chicken tasted much better my last time here). I also liked how the waitstaff made sure we were happy with the variety of food that was coming to the table, and if we wanted a specific cut or kind, they would bring it to us right away. Parking was difficult as there was a baseball game and it was a Saturday night, but the restaurant isn't too far of a walk from Horton Plaza. They have valet parking, also."

  • "We don't dine out a lot, and chose Fogo because the type of dining experience sounded interesting. We wanted to take another couple with us, our treat. It was a very pricey dinner for four people (just over $50 per person for the dinner) even though we didn't have any alcohol. We did each have dessert though, which is above and beyond the $51 or so for dinner. But the food was AWESOME. I could have just gone back repeatedly to the salad bar with all it's great greens, extra veggies, many gourmet cheeses AND some wonderful meats as well. But the staff warned us to SAVE ROOM for the dinner, and I'm glad we did. The service was excellent and all the food was great. Expensive, but great for a SPECIAL treat, at least for my budget!"

  • "This was my first time to Fogo de Chao and I was looking forward to the dining experience. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful. The waitress was very helpful in explaining how you order your food. The process is very easy. My son and I started out at the well stocked and visually appealing salad bar where we both decided to try something new. After this we started ordering the from the waiters who come to your table with one of 16 different meets. The food was delicious and the variety of meats was grand. I enjoyed them all. My only taste discomfort came on the very first entree that we were served and it was rectified on future servings. It was very salty because we were the first to eat. The outside of the meat is salty."
