About Events with Fogo de Chão San Jose
Fogo de Chão® (fo-go dèe shoun) is an authentic 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 15 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. The Fogo de Chão dining experience is based on the centuries-old gaucho tradition known as churrasco, the gaucho way of roasting meats over pits of open fire. Operating under the unique service concept of espeto corrido (“continuous service” in Portuguese), Fogo’s Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs present and slice 15 different cuts of meat tableside from roasting skewers. Guests control the pace of the meal by flipping a two-sided disk between green (more food, please) and red (I’m on a break now). With this unique system, patrons can enjoy the experience at their own pace.
