During this pandemic this place is not the place to order from unless you want to wait 2 hours even if you call ahead of time. I called at 5:25pm, arrived at 6:00pm. Had to wait in line until 6:25 to then be asked to pay for my food and have a seat inside the eating area. I didn't get my food that I ordered over the phone until 7:20pm. Food is okay but definitely not worth the wait. I will not be ordering food here until this pandemic is over. Super disorganized.

The food is great, great amount in portions. Ordered a chicken and ribs combo. Fresh cut french fries, flavorful yellow rice. Food is defintely a rock star.

From the first moment you step in that restaurant the waiters give you a comfortable feeling. Very congenial waiters, it is a friendly restaurant to hang out with friends or with your date. heavenly meals, creative chief cook and stuff, comfortable pay and courteous service. Warmly recommended.

Nice food. Nice staff. Nice place. Not the best you can get, but good if you don't know what to get.

This place stands out from the rest as the Best of New Jersey. The seasoning is delicious and you can expect the same taste everytime you buy from them.

Great taste, fast service in and out. I've tried places near and the flavor is just not the same as it is here,I could eat this almost every weekend

The ribs and the chicken is the best it really is what their french fries and what else and rice if you don't eat it right away is horrible

Have been eating here for over 20 years. It's comfort food for my family and me. Delicious food, fast and affordable. We always get combos; ribs , chicken, fries and rice. Lines can get long in the summertime, but worth the wait.

They don't deliver, and when they're busy you'll be waiting a while, but it's worth leaving your house and waiting for. Hands down the best Portuguese barbecue nearby.

Burnet BBQ is 100x better. My food wasn’t made fresh, there was hostility and no one greeted me when I walked in. The workers all seemed racist, I am a black woman and I was met with hostile stares and not even a smile as I was paying for my food. When I got home to eat my food I noticed that it must’ve been sitting in the restaurant for AWHILE (it must’ve been someone else’s forgotten order) and they just gave it to me. They gave it to me in 1 minute after ordering usually at other Portuguese restaurants I have to wait 5-15 minutes for my food as it’s made fresh. the food was nasty I had to throw it away. What a waste of money. I will NEVER GO BACK.

Chicken & Rib combo, with yellow rice & string french fries is really good for the price. One tray can feed about 3 or 4 people. Fast service. Parking is hard to find. You can pick up inside or eat there. They have tables there to sit at. Have a variety of other foods, like beef steak, pork chops etc. Also have desserts.

This is the best Portuguese food ever if there was an infinite star I would give it to them is soooo much better than any other Portuguese food I've ever had. I suggest the combo cause the ribs are falling off the bone and the chicken is soooo goood it's unbelievable the best things is the French fries and I also love the rice I give the place it's the best u have to eat here. I've been going here since I was a kid and even now, married with two kids and living in Florida, anytime I visit NJ, I still go straight there to eat!! Food is affordable and has amazing quality!! You can't go wrong here to either dine in or take out for any family event you have!!

Been getting to go bbq from here for over 20 years, the quality service and flavor have never disappointed. Nice portions and reasonably priced. I’ve fed my parents, visiting cousins & friends from here all these years. In my humble opinion it’s an Newark if not Jersey institution.

ANNA REMACHE

Bad experiences. Please check your food before leaving. My husband ordered a combo with yellow rice and French fries and when got home they were only pork chops and French fries also another experience was the steak was burned black l couldn't feed it to my kids l ended up throwing it in the garbage. When I call to let them know the woman on the phone was so rude.

They are very busy because the food is always just off the grill..delicious and very reasonable and great portions. One of the best

Ervin M Ventura

Excellent Portuguese style bbq the chicken tender and juicy. The pork ribs so good with the right amount of spices, flavorful and tender. The rice and the fries were ok. A good portion of food for $10 1/2 chicken 2 ribs with rice and French fries. Overall a very good experience definitely recommend

Denise Mata

Second time I go home with wrong food!!!!!! I love this place the food is great!!!! But when I come from Montclair because I’m craving their chicken and I get home and I have pork, it’s an issue!!!!SECOND TIME THIS HAPPENS!!!!! It’s gonna be a long while before I come here again!!!! When I make the drive back down there they couldn’t even give me French fries for their F UP!!! Lmaooo!!! Not even fries and mind you I’m a consistent customer coming from Montclair!!!! Honestly it was disgusting the fact they couldn’t even do that for me when I had to drive a half hour to go and come back!!!! .... maybe they do not need my loyalty?! ‍♀️ I’ll go else where

Avon Representative

Magdalena Ramirez

My favorite BBQ spot in Newark! I definitely recommend eating here. The wait tends to be long but if there's a crowd...you know this place is worth the wait!

Noe Castillo

We have been going this spot for over 10 years and the food never disappoints. Love it!

Sergio Rivera

Good customer service, good meats, good food and sandwiches, decent prices, and well kept.

Cheryl Bacigalupi

The Pork BBQ ribs are delicious. I’ll be back to try the beef next time. Served with rice and fries, in half or full order size. This is a great deal for the price. I have never had Portuguese BBQ anywhere else to compare but the place was packed with locals and I heard nothing but great things before going. Definitely a must a try for all bbq fans!

Delicious. Just as we remember the food tasting. The only downside was the cleanliness of the restrooms. They both were very dirty, especially the floors. They were super slippery, and reeked of sewerage. The toilets were also disgusting. The staff were nice.
