The Gaucho Way.

Founded in Brazil in 1979 and now headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Fogo de Chão is a leading Brazilian steakhouse specializing in the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco – the art of roasting high-quality meats over open flame, all carved tableside by Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs. By leveraging an exceptionally profitable business model, the company has organically grown to an international footprint of 75 restaurants in the U.S., Brazil, Mexico and the Middle East. The company has demonstrated global portability and created significant appeal across a broad demographic and socioeconomic range by providing differentiated guest experiences, from the traditional yet innovative prix fixe menu to enhanced platforms like Bar Fogo, Weekend Brunch, Indulgent Cuts Menu, and more.
