Pezao Brazilian Buffet and Grill
Cuisines: Brazilian
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 4, 2011

Pezao is a typical Brazilian buffet, where you weigh your plate and pay less for less. The salad and vegtables are extensive if not hot enough. The meat and the service are excellent.

Feijoada is the most famous Brazilian dish, basically a stew consisting of all sorts of beef and pork meats, different rices, black beans, ribs, tongue, tripe, and numerous side dishes. Having eaten Feijoada many times as a child, as my mother's best friend was from Brazil, I never thought I would get to enjoy it again. Pezao Brazilian Buffet offers the Feijoada I remember.

The Feijoada is fabulous here. There are two huge buffet tables, loaded with all the fixings for a typical Feijoda. Everything from two or three different types of black beans, to various rices, sausages, many cuts of beef, roasted pork, ribs, and the typical side dishes such as lightly stir fried collard greens, boiled cassava, deep fried bananas, an entire buffet table of salad offerings, including fresh fruit. On Fridays, or anytime you ask for it actually, they will make a fried fish dish for you (we had deep fried basia fish) at no extra charge.

We have eaten here 5 times already, and each time we can't wait to go back again for the Feijoada. The food is not spicy, but you can add hot sauces to spice it up to your personal taste. The Feijoada is $10.00, and it is all you can eat, and it is more than enough to fill you up for the rest of the day. For $4.00 more, you can get the Brazilian grilled meats to add to your Feijoada. On the days we were there, you could choose from grilled steak (which was also on the buffet, but not grilled), spare ribs, chickens, livers, and other meats.

There are two locations for this restaurant. We always eat at the one on Brighton Avenue in West End. If you have never tried Feijoada before, you will be in for a real treat, because the food is absolutely delicious here, freshly prepared, replenished immediately. Everyone working at the restaurant is friendly, and the owner is more than happy to explain any item on the buffet you do not recognize, as well as assist you in putting together a plate to make the authentic Feijoada.

When you are in the Long Branch/West End area, this is a great place to come for lunch or dinner. They also have a very inexpensive Brazilian breakfast. Do try this restaurant, it is great.
