I dropped someone off at the Newark airport and decided to have a lunch around. Googled places and found this places with best reviews. Well I knew tastes are different but did not know it can be so much different. I am a burger fan. At the register I said I want a beef burger without any other stuff. No... More

Being from Brazil I wanted to try this place out. We ordered 2 coxinhas, and 1 hot dog. The coxinhas were good, the hot dog not: they forgot to add the tomato sauce to it. I asked about the sauce and the lady added 1 spoon of it. I felt lost after that. During check out I asked for a... More

Whenever I go to the Ironbound I try to go here. The Burgers are big and juicy with a Brazilian twist which I really love. These are tasty and good, don't hesitate to go here.

We don't have a lot of experience with Portuguese food, so didn't know what to expect. This place is located in the iron bound area of Newark in a little corner shop that also sells baked goods. When we showed up, about 2 PM on a weekday, it was packed. After getting some recommendations from the waitress, we ordered a... More

Simple small place for huge messy burger if you're craving such. Not my preference for lunch break from work but maybe when im out on the town having drinks and craving for a huge messy burger thats loaded with fries. Alcohol can do that to us as you may well know. But if that's the case then this will satisfy... More

This is a small hamburger place down neck in Newark. Parking is somewhat of challenge. Burgers are very good and pretty big. For $6 or $7, you get a really nice size burger with plenty of toppings. Beef empanadas were excellent, chicken was ok. Dining area only has a few tables. Overall, really good burgers at a reasonable price.

The best burgers in the area, we had the option of trying several different burgers and combinations and I am still unsure of which one I like the best! They were all delicious! Definitely coming back to this place!

The burger I had was very good one of the best I have had in a while and definitely far better than any fast food burger. I highly recommend. If you are ever in the area give it a try you will not be disappointed.

I ordered the cheese Tudo burger and it was excellent. We also tried a chicken ball with Brazilian cream cheese which was very good as well. The burger has beef, ham, bacon, mozzarella, lettuce, tomatoes, and potatoes sticks. It was incredibly tasty. Just the right mix of ingredients. It was also pretty cheap compared to your standard burger in NJ.... More

Their burgers are juice and full of flavor, it might sound weird when reading what comes with it but trust me it really is great.
