Best coxinha in town

If you're not Brazilian, but want to try our pub food, you must go to Coronel. They have all the deep fried nhami snacks you need, cold beer and good people around. Great for happy hours at the end of a hard day :). And please, try the "coxinha". It's the best one in town

For me, is the best bar in SJC. Bar do Coronel is a typical Brazilian bar/"boteco" with a cozy environment, waiters are very friendly and the beer is always cold. The food is aewsome.... the pasteis ("carne seca" - beef jerky and cream cheese fried pastry, cheese, other filings) ,crispy pork belly and "bolinho caipira" are some of my top... More

This place is great...downtown location, lots of people, lots of energy. Great vibe. They're known for their pastels (think "Hot pockets") and they are delicious. It's a great place to nosh on food and drink beer or spirits. Everytime I'm in town, I make it a point to go there one night. Take a local with you if you don't... More

With no doubts this place is one of the best places to do a happy hour with your friends after work, or to drink something before going to a dance club on a Friday night or even a really good place to have a beer on a Sunday in the afternoon. Their Chopp is amazing and their food is delicious.... More

Went here several times for business diner, and depending on the day (Wednesday to Sunday) the bar is always packed and there is a great atmosphere. The cocktails are great and you can eat a la carte, or the come by your table serving all kinds of fried stuff, which you can take or leave. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and drinks, hard to stop eating. But it may get crowded some days, then the ambient gets quite uncomfortable.

At lunch I recommend the feijoda and in the evening the fried shrimp pastel is excellent. Of course, you typically go to a place like this for the beer. The number of people almost always exceeds the number of seats here.

In front of it is the city main cementery (!!!). But the place is really very good! Food, personel, drinks, people!! It has been awarded several... More

While staying in Sao Jose dos Campos you can't miss an opportunity to eat a great variety of petiscos such as pastel of carne seca, bacalhau or shimp and drink some chops ! The place is always full of good vibration ! I recommend this bar!

In Sao Jose dos Campos and the nearby cities this is the bar/pub where you can find all the who's who from town and a reserved area for the more family like visitors to sit and enjoy a fantastic feijoada and all the Brazilian snacks that go so well with a beer! The waiters are very professional and know how... More
