Newark's Ironbound is home to some of the best Spanish/Portuguese food around, and I've been going to Brasilia for a long time. I can honestly say its rodizio dinner is what makes it better than Forno's and Iberia (two other awesome restaurants in the area.) If you go for dinner, the rodizio is the absolute must. You sit at your table, and the servers come around and bring you meat, after meat, after delicious meat. If you order rodizio, you also get the buffet, which has lots of interesting breads, sauces, and classic Portuguese coxinhas (fried chicken/cheese "thighs.") It's fixed price, so it's your fault if you don't make the value worth it. If you want, you can order a pitcher of sangria, which tastes great alongside the meat. Also, when they bring you sausage, it looks like a giant snail on a skewer. So cool!
Love Brasilia. If Newark was more convenient for me to get to, I'd go back at least once a month.
