Just get the classic Hamburgao Beef ( yes...that is a burger topped with mozzarella, ham, bacon, eggs, corn, potato sticks, lettuce, tomatoes and mayo) on one of the biggest hamburger rolls I've seen and a refreshing can of Guarana. Small cozy atmosphere, friendly service, and great prices.

Imagine a Burger King Whopper. Now, imagine the Rolls Royce of Whopper....where the bun is a fresh roll (kind of like a toasted Kaiser roll), the meat is perfectly lean and cooked to perfection, the lettuce and tomato are freshly green and red, throw on a fried egg, cheese, potato sticks and corn...this is a burger the way it should...

I have been to this place several times over the years and I have always enjoyed the food and friendly service. My recent visit was no exception. I love having a fried egg on my burger, and while I have heard some folks complain the meat patty is a bit thin, that's just the style so you can have lots... More

Some friends and I took a bunch of kids to Brazil Day in Ironbound Newark on this perfect late-summer day. A lot of walking, a lot of sun, some tropical junk food, and three DJ stages competing to see who could be loudest. The Samba drums were so loud that I think they changed the rhythm of my heartbeat.

Small luncheonete in the ironbound in Newark. The hamburger I ordered was kind of dry and it was missing an ingredient. The waiter was very nice and quickly had another one prepared for me. It is a simple but nice place to go for a Brazilian luncheonete menu. We will go back!

I actually have booked longer than normal layovers at the Newark airport for the last 3 years just so I can come here and eat. The X-Tudo's. fruit juices, and pastries are tasty and are something unique I have been unable to find back home in Minneapolis. The service is fast and cordial and they are always willing to let...

Had a nice meal. Enjoyed the food and was alive with lots of crowd. The place is neat and clean, the staff was coordial. The menu had enough choices to chose from, not far from my place of stay and hence preferred this place to eat out.
