We stopped in for lunch for the hyped cheese tudo, we got them on rolls that were hard as a rock. The burger itself was overcooked and dry. All the fancy topping in the world can't disguise bad. Never again.

Something different. It was a behemoth of a burger. It was tasty but way too many ingredients. Thin sirloin, ham, corn, egg, lettuce, tomato, bacon, cheese,shoestring fries ....just two much. Hard to even open mouth that wide to eat. Although appealing and interesting, better off...grinding the sirloin and making a patty - would be softer too. Drop the shoestring fries and you got yourself a nice burger. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the experience and good service although I could understand half of what they were saying in Brazilian.More

Decided to try this place as my partner is Brazilian. It isn’t a burger bar, instead a very good steak sandwich cafeteria. The meat is picanha which is a sirloin steak. The quality of the meat was excellent and the sandwiches are very well made....It is a cheap option in the Ironbound district which is a largely Portuguese and Brazilian neighbourhood. My partner said it was the best burger he had ever eaten. We also had pudim and cochinha which again were great quality. Would definitely recommend.More

Brazilian sandwiches, which are huge and full of flavor, are the specialty here. Chicken and Picanha varieties are my favorite. Prices are only a little higher than fast food, but this is a different experience... Like a great home made sandwich with lots of exotic...fixins, that complement each other well...like BLT, ham, potato sticks, mayo, and more. It's not diet food, and doesn't pretend to be! Ask for your sandwich on a Portuguese roll for best result. The croquettes are nice, Galao coffee and oversized flans are good too. I have come here for years for years and was never disappointed, Don't be shy to bring half a sandwich home... unless you are crazy hungry!More

The cheese pastel tasted just like the ones I've eaten in Brazil. Their take on a hamburger must be ordered - large portion and excellent flavor and texture.

I dropped someone off at the Newark airport and decided to have a lunch around. Googled places and found this places with best reviews. Well I knew tastes are different but did not know it can be so much different. I am a burger fan....At the register I said I want a beef burger without any other stuff. No mayo, nothing. Menu was quite hard to figure out. They brought me the burger , attention: with hard piece of beef , ham, fried eggs and bacon.... WOW...! I told you I want plain beef burger. It's good I also ordered a fries. It saved me cause I was starving. Food quality is very poor. I guess local people like the place but it's not definitely for everyone. PS. The public restroom in cafe was busy for about 20 minutes. A waitress came out of it and in 2 minutes she delivered my food. This is not something you want to see. Big No.More

Being from Brazil I wanted to try this place out. We ordered 2 coxinhas, and 1 hot dog. The coxinhas were good, the hot dog not: they forgot to add the tomato sauce to it. I asked about the sauce and the lady added 1...spoon of it. I felt lost after that. During check out I asked for a beijinho and as I held it I could tell it was hard as a rock. I end up not taking it home. Customer service was bad. The girl who brought our food had an unhappy face and no one acknowledged when we said thank you 2x on our way out. I should went somewhere else. Maybe Bethel like some friends suggested. First and last time.More

Whenever I go to the Ironbound I try to go here. The Burgers are big and juicy with a Brazilian twist which I really love. These are tasty and good, don't hesitate to go here.

We don't have a lot of experience with Portuguese food, so didn't know what to expect. This place is located in the iron bound area of Newark in a little corner shop that also sells baked goods. When we showed up, about 2 PM on...a weekday, it was packed. After getting some recommendations from the waitress, we ordered a couple of burgers and a couple of orders of fries. My burger was actually a steak sandwich, that was ginormous. It was covered with a lot of stuff, including potato shoestrings, corn, bacon, an egg, and ham, among some other stuff. It was incredible. The wife got a burger that she couldn't finish, but she did try - very hard. One of the kids ended up with a shredded chicken sandwich - much the same - incredible quality and massive amount of food. I guess what I am saying here is if you like burgers, this is a great choice. You probably only need an order of fries for your party.More
