Stumbled upon this spot on our way back from cottage country. The place is small and not much to look out from the outside, but the food is very good. It is well worth the stop if you are in the area. We both had the pulled pork which I would recommend to anyone. You go up and order from a variety of smoked items and sides then wait for it to be given to you. Take it and sit down. Seating is very limited.

Had to goto Orillia for a doctor appointment and wanted something different. I had the sausage with a rice side and my wife had beef with the beans sides. Everything was very tasty but was a bit spicy. That was fine for us but be aware.

Staff were very friendly, service was quick and the prices were reasonable. We will go back and try the dinner plates.

This is refreshing break from the franchise restaurants like Tim Horton's and McDonalds. The barbecue chicken with hot sauce was very good. It's actually not very peppery and had excellent flavour. Garlic mashed potatoes, and roasted potatoes are a winner. The Pulled Pork was too salty. The rice was tasty buy mushy. Coleslaw was one of best coleslaws we've had. Great value and very different from the formula restaurants that we usually stop at.

My girlfriend said we had to go - the food is delicious. Underrated. It was excellent and very traditional Portuguese. All cooked from scratch and very delicious! the owners take great pride in what they do and offer. I had the chicken plate. The chicken was moist and amazing. The portions are very generous. The prices are very reasonable. We took our dinner home to eat. I look forward to when they open their dessert shack.

stopped for a quick platter to take home, had pulled port and 1/2 chicken with sides. All very tasty, a good value. Will defiantly stop again. Do not let the lack of cars deter you, most people take out.
