Brasilia is the best for lunch or dinner.

this is the place for the brazilian grill style meal. Lunch prices and specials are really specials, you get great portions. Service is very good, attentive nice girls (we always go to the bar side-it's casual, and weekdays it's like a working man's place, but at night there is live music, which... read more

Brasilia Grill is Bare Bones. Uninformed wait staff, bare tables, bar size drinks, beer in the bottle........you get the message. The salad bar is vast, but is mostly a hot bar for those who do not want to order off the menu. We ordered the meat platter rather than rodizio. We should have ordered rodizio. The wine list is adequate.... More

Several kinds of meat, chicken, sausages carved for you at your table. This restaurant was working hard to be hospitable and serve good food. Unfortunately we were in the basement party room which wasn't set up very well and had little air conditioning. I would try it again though, for a smaller group.

I usually go there for lunch during the week and sit on the bar side. Weekends are too crowded and noisy. You get better service during the week and food is fresher and tastier. All and all I enjoy the food also reasonably priced.

Ate there with the family. We thought the place will be real good based on reviews. Not too disappointed or liked much. Its just an average place that does not compare to NaBrasa in Phili area. The meats are a hit and miss where some were dry and some had good taste. Salad bar can definitely also be better based... More

Our son surprised me by flying in from Seattle to celebrate this auspicious birthday. (70) A family dinner was decided to be had at Brasilia because I was in the mood for Rodezio. The meat kept coming faster than I could eat it and it was all good. One or two of the beefs offered were a little tough, but... More

So your partner say, "I feel like eating meat." and he suggested Brasilia Grill. Well, if you are the jealous type... make sure it's not the second and last Friday of the month because you are in for a dinner and a show of Samba( scantily clad women dancing around while loud drums are played). really entertaining. Now for the... More

I will preface this by saying my lunch yesterday at Brasilia Grill was my 3rd time visiting this establishment. The first time, was very good as far as the food was concerned. Second, my dish was terrible; extremely tough meat and little flavor. I wasn't going to go back again but a family member wanted to meet up with us... More

We've been coming here for years. Every time we visit family in NJ or have a flight out of Newark we always make time to come here. The Rodizio is spectacular. The meats are marinated to perfection. The salad bar has more selections than you can eat. Even the bread is worth saving room for. Add the dessert tray and... More
