Fogo de Chão
The story of Fogo de Chao began in the mountainous countryside of Rio Grande do Sul in Southern Brazil, where its founders were born. Growing up, the brothers were immersed in the centuries-old Gaucho culture, a rich blend of traditions from European immigrants and Brazilian natives.
An important element of this culture is churrasco, the Gaucho way of roasting meats over pits of open fire for delicious barbecues, which is always present at every festive occasion, especially family gatherings. The young boys would learn how to grill the meats the Gaucho way from their fathers, becoming the caretakers of a culinary tradition passed down from generation to generation for over three centuries.
In 1979, Fogo began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. From Southern Brazil to Texas, the Austin location celebrates Fogo's ranching heritage. An elegant front porch complete with open flame rotisserie welcomes guests. The restaurant is conveniently located across from the Austin Convention Center and just blocks from the Capitol Building.
Our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 15 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service.
We invite you to enjoy these delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.
Fogo de Chao is an authentic Brazilian steakhouse.
