This is not a fancy place but the food and staff are amazing. Its a place frequented by many police officer's. My family and i often drive almost an hour to come to this place because of the ribs and half a chicken combo served with yellow rice, a ton of fries and a few vegetables. They also serve steak and other meats. If your in the area or not you owe it to yourself to come here you won't regret it and the price can't be beat.

My friends and I were looking for a place to grab lunch while staying in Newark. After a quick search on that good good Yelp app, we decided to go to McWhorter's BBQ, a local churrascaria (Brazilian BBQ) in the area; furthermore, we were all very satisfied with our lunch. Unlike most churrascarias, this one doesn't serve their meat rodízio style (all you can eat); however, when you order, your food comes out in huge portions, so it's not a big deal. I got a full order of the pechuga empanizada (breaded chicken breast) and there was so much food, that I had enough for lunch, dinner, and then lunch again the next day. With all that fried chicken, rice, and french fries, it was a good thing I didn't come here on a keto diet, haha, but there is an option to sub out the fries and rice with a soup or side salad, and there are various grilled meats for those who are being more health-conscious, but I digress. Overall, the food was just bomb. There are some things to be aware of when dining here. The dining area is a tight space, it's doable, but I prefer roomier spaces when I'm trying to eat. They're a cash-only establishment so make sure you stop at an ATM before coming here (or pay the fee at the one they have on-site). Last but certainly not least, if you ask for water, they'll bring you bottled water and charge you for it, which is the bane of my existence, because it's not hard to tell patrons that water isn't free when they order it. Other than that though, the service was very friendly, and I recommend McWhorter's BBQ as a pretty decent place to grab lunch in Newark.

Love this place. Great food, great prices, great atmosphere. I do not live nearby but always eat here when I’m in the area. The interior update looks great too. Thank you Emilio and your staff for always providing great food time after time.

There are many barbecue options in the Ironbound area and I have been to a few but this has to be one of my favorites now! I ordered the half order of grilled chicken breast with rice and a side salad. When I arrived to order takeout there was a long wait for the people who wanted to dine in but there was also a long wait for people who were getting food to take out. I waited about 15 to 20 minutes for my order but it was well worth it. When I first bit into the chicken it was the juiciest chicken breast I have ever had! They are very generous with their portions and the price of my order was only $7! You cannot beat the price and the quality of food. You can see them cooking the meats in an Open pit, which I love. The staff members are friendly and work quickly so it's best to know what you want to order before you get in there. I can easily see myself being a regular here!
