Any trip I make down neck isn't complete without a stop at fernandes. The rodizio is hands down the best thing on the menu, and a vegetarians worst nightmare. The variety of meats is excellent, and you certainly won't leave hungry. The restaurant is well kept, friendly staff, and has its own parking lot so you don't have to park on the street. The sangria is incredible, whether you get a pitcher of the red or white, you can't go wrong with either. Definatly worth a try if you're looking for good rodizio, and good prices.

I had a customer in my business staying at in Newark for the night before flying out the next day. We made arrangements to meet for dinner and I wanted to find a typical Brazilian Steakhouse in the Ironbound section of Newark. After some internet research, I came across Fernandes Steakhouse and am I thankful I did! I have eaten at many of the big commercial Brazilian Rodizio restaurants and Fernandes beats them hands down. The price was amazing at around $29 and that includes all you can eat salad bar, rice and killer beans, French fries, fried banana and of course a meat lovers dream of non stop cuts of prime meat. All of the meats were seasoned perfectly which some were done plain grilled, garlic infused, cheese filled, bacon wrapped etc. All the meats were superb and the service could not have been better. Very attentive and constantly asking if there was any particular meats that we wanted again.

Great place off the beat and path from the other restaurants in the area but no need to worry about parking as they have a good size valet parking lot on site.

The problem with all these reviews is that they are missing the mark of what this place really is all about. Why is this large restaurant, in a somewhat iffy 'hood, in Newark, New Jersey, packed on a Tuesday night? Or every other night? Great atmosphere? That "buzz" that everyone wants to be a part of? Professional, caring people? Yes, all of that, but its more....
You go to a restaurant in Maine, everyone is sitting at large tables eating lobsters, do you eat steak? You go to a restaurant in Maryland, everyone is eating blue claws and crab cakes, do you order pork roast? You go to NOLA and everyone is eating oysters, cheap and good, what do you order? Right, now you are getting it. Brings us back to Fernandez.....
You sit in the restaurant and you immediately notice young men walking around with large skewers of meats, going to tables, and slicing said meats onto the diners plates, plates are consumed, repeat process until consumer cries uncle. That is Fernandez in a nutshell. A carnivores dream. Big menu, but this is the best rodizio restaurant maybe anywhere and is why you should come here. This is a great place, lots of fun, fast paced, good sangria and great people.
Just one thing. Rodizio can be ordered as a full array of meats and sausages and is all you can eat. The cheap stuff comes out early so dont fill up early. The stuff is salted, which I love, though many dont so let them know. Or, you can do what I do, order the "picanha" rodizio which is all one cut of beef, all you can eat. Rare cooked, salted and delicious.
If you are in the area, love endless meat, good sangria and just great atmosphere and vibe, go to Fernandez.
