If you're a meat lover, the all you can eat Rodizio is for you! Delicious grilled meats ranging from chicken, sausage to a variety of beef are abundant and continuous. If you're not in the mood for unlimited meat, the skirt steak is cooked to order and very flavorful. For the seafood lover, the whole Bronzini or the Grilled Squid... More

Word cannot express how I feel about this place. I only get the Rodizio(35$) when I go there, which is quite frequent. The Rodizio gives you unlimited rounds of different types of meat fresh off the girl. It is heaven on earth. The sangria is also good if you need to satisfy a thirst. Trust me, the only thing you...

Have been to Churrasqueira Bairrada a number of times as it is a "neighborhood" place. The food has always been excellent and the service is good. It is reasonably priced and on weekends you will usually have to wait for a table, but usually within 45 mins at the longest. The ribs are my favorite, but also like the rodizio... More

They are small chickens served with bread ,salad, and broccoli with carrots .also home made chips and fries which are good,albeit redundant .some more typical sides would have... More

Food is on a wood burning grill - great chicken. Downside - very crowded. When calling for reservations for 9, they told us to come in 15 minutes. When we got there, there was nothing available for way over an hour.

I live right around the corner from this place. We have been eating here regularly for the past 8 years. We have tried everything on the menu, and I must say that we have enjoyed everything, especially their tasty grilled chicken. Their steaks are absolutely delicious, and their fish is very fresh. It is very crowded on weekends, and they... More

This is not a review. Just wanted to point out that you have this as both #3 and #27 in popularity in Mineola. The spelling is slightly different, but it is the same restaurant.
