I ordered a full order each of Ribs, Chicken, Picadinho, Garlic Shrimp, and a chorizo sausage for a small get together. The woman who took my order was very nice and it was promptly ready when I got there to pick it up with a bunch of extra rolls. That's where it all went bad. The woman questioned the guy... More

Ordered the grilled cod. It took over half hour to get my food. I finally got home and had a hard time finding the fish because it was covered with the rice and vegetables. Heard so many good things about this place for years. Probably won't return.

I have been going here with my family for years now and it never gets old! We love going to all of their locations. This is a great restaurant if you want really good food quick and cheap. Their portions can feed a whole family! This is the best Portuguese food around!

Everything on the menu is good except the tough shell steak. Go for the beef ribs instead. To go is always good because it gets too crowded when dining it. The rice is always perfect. Their pork bits is much better than the Ferry Street bbq in Newark.

Small family restaurant where you can watch the meat being barbecued just behind the service counter. Busy place. The barbecued chicken was succulent and the ribs were tasty. Delicious beans and crispy fries. You better be very hungry if you want to finish even the half portions! Great value for money.

It's a common genre in the Essex County area. Grilled chicken, pork ribs, and shrimp. It's served over yellow rice, and a garlic sauce is drizzled on top. Side dishes include fries or a boiled vegetable combo that includes carrots, cabbage and potatoes. Burnett's does this as well as anybody. The portions are generous and one order will feed three...

Burnett BBQ is a simple, small BBQ restaurant that does mostly take out with a couple of tables if you want to eat there. It is busy, friendly and informal. The BBQ, especially chicken and ribs, is first rate, and made right in front of you. If you eat in, you just order and the counter and they serve you.... More

Been going to Burnet BBQ for years now. Never had a bad meal there. Food is fresh and the Taste is out of this world. Actually, they don't need this review. The place is always full. And I mean always. I can understand why. It's great! Period.
