Texas-Born Galpão Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse Unveils Sprawling Location In Downtown San Diego

October 28, 2023

Texas-born, all-you-can-eat Brazilian steakhouse chain Galpão Gaucho has unveiled a sprawling new location in downtown San Diego's The Headquarters at Seaport Village.

Galpão Gaucho was founded in San Antonio, TX in 2014 by Alberto Wachholz, a native of Brazil who began working in churrascarias as a teenager and eventually worked for the Fogo de Chao brand before branching out on his own. The Brazilian steakhouse chain currently has three locations in California, including in Napa Valley, with additional restaurants in Las Vegas and Charleston, SC.

The San Diego location of Galpão Gaucho is now open in the 9,900 square-foot space that last housed a branch of Seasons 52 within The Headquarters in downtown San Diego. Inspired by the gaucho, or South American cowboy, the restaurant features waiters dressed in gaucho-style attire slicing 17 different types of marinated meats, as well as a seemingly endless salad bar filled with cured meats, cheeses, salads, soups and marinated vegetable. There is also a full bar with cocktails, beer, and an impressive wine list.

Galpão Gaucho is now open at 789 West Harbor Drive, Suite C-2, in downtown San Diego. For more information, visit galpaogauchousa.com.
