In the hills of Rio Grande do Sul, herds of cattle graze the state’s vast pastures, providing Brazil with meats for the famous “churrasco” barbecues – a centuries old “gaucho” (Southern Cowboy) tradition. In the olden days, gauchos slowly grilled meats over open flamed pits and carved each meat to their family members.
At Fogo de Chao we have kept the tradition alive, featuring continuous tableside service of 16 different delectable cuts of beef, pork, chicken and lamb. Our family-friendly concept also offers a sumptuous gourmet market table with fresh cut vegetables and a variety of traditional side dishes to compliment the meats.
Our beautiful San Diego location resides in the well-known Borders bookstore building, on the corner of 6th Avenue and G Street, within the bustling Gaslamp Quarter. Open for both lunch and dinner, Fogo is the perfect setting for an intimate dinner for two in our main dining room, or corporate event in one of our five private dining rooms. Options for vegetarians, vegan and fish will satisfy all diners in your party.
Whether you are planning a lunch & learn, holiday party or social celebration, Fogo offers private space with AV for groups of over 100 guests, and flexible semi-private areas. Group package options ensure each guest in your party receives the ultimate, unlimited tasting menu while still keeping you within budget.
Featuring a full selection of cocktails, 100+ label award-winning wine list and local craft beers, BAR FOGO is perfect for an after-work gathering of co-workers. Enjoy our happy hour specials Monday-Friday (4:30-6:30pm), or stop by for a pre-Padres game small plate any day of the week. Our newly expanded Sunday brunch features unique Brazilian specialties including our famous pao de queso egg bake and a carving station.
