This is a great little hole in the wall place where you can drop in and get a great bite to eat rather quickly.

If you like Galetos (small barbequed chickens) this is the place to go. Prices are excellent and food is always fresh and delicious. One of my favourites in Rio.

Glad I found this little place. Menu is in different languages, but I knew what I wanted as soon as I saw the chicken roasting on the open pit. Excellent flavor and tenderness.

Most people who live or travel to Rio look forward to eating at a churasscaria or traditional steak house. While this is a great experience, if you are looking for a quality meal and are on the go, Quick Galetos is a must. While the setup is a lunch counter or cafeteria style, the food more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. This is the way that "fast food" was meant to be. Delivered fast. Great quality. Not outrageous prices. Their specialty is the galeto - small chicken - that is slow roasted over an open flame, but also their Filet cut is out of this world. If they bottled their sauces and marinades, I would buy 10 of them to take home. The staff has been working there for decades. Not overly friendly to tourists, but reasonable enough. Prepare to order several dishes ala carte and share. Portion sizes are generous. If you're looking for a great meal after a day at the beach and don't care about sitting down in a restaurant for hours, this is the place for you.

Every time I came to Rio I look for an opportunity to come here. My wife does not understand why I enjoy this place, being an hotelier and enjoying a good wine and fine dining. The answer is simple…I grew-up on this neighborhood, the food is nice, not sophisticated at all but nice, service is efficient and you can “feel” the real “Copacabana” and “Rio de Janeiro”. I love the cold beer, a well cooked “galeto”, which is a small chicken (enough for one person), together with a “farofa” and a potato/mayonnaise salad….delicious. The price is definitely a good deal.
