    Here in Rhode Island where it seems that 1/2 the population is Portuguese (the other half being Italian) I asked some Portuguese Folks around here if they heard of "Portuguese BBQ" and they had this expression on their face...

      What is portuguese BBQ? Anything like Brazilian? There's a shared language.

        I have not seen any of these restaurants in and around Hunterdon County yet. I would appreciate any info on locations for these places and I will volunteer to try one.

          Portuguese BBQ is very similar to Brasillian. For most of the part it is chicken and ribs (No BBQ sauce) cooked over hot coals while turning. It is served with rice and french fries for under $10 per person. Its a great fast food alternative and I eat it almost regularly.

          Here's a menue from one in Kenilworth nj: http://www.jerseymenus.com/menus.php?businessid=24406



          It's become so popular that they are even opening chain restaurants: http://www.zambachicken.com/about.php

            Ask them if they've ever heard of a "churrasqueira"

            A Churrasqueira" is a BBQ restaurant in Portuguese.

              No wonder why no one around here heard about this- This appears to be Brazilian Portuguese, where most of everyone around here is Portuguese via Portugal or the Cape Verde Islands

                I guess the big difference between the two is that Portuguese BBq is under $10 and Brazilian BBQ is over $35.

                  The $35 one that you are referring to is Rodizio served at a formal sit down restaurant where they continuously bring BBQ meats to your table. Yes, that is Brasillian.

                  Brasillians refer to those restaurants as Churrascarias"

                      Well - this all looks very interesting. I guess I will have to haul myself out of Hunterdon County and check one of these places out!

                        Might be a regional thing...as you can see the Portuguese Restaurants around here don't serve it

                            TA Restaurant- the place with the great prices was actually reviewed on the site
                            http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=474

                            Many of the Portuguese Restaurants around here (The East Bay of Rhode Island and Southeastern MA) rely heavily on Seafood.

                              i have seen at least 6 different Portuguese BBQ places in recent years here in central/northern NJ - i have also seen half of them close rather quickly, unfortunately...the remaining one i frequent that constantly pleases my tummy and wallet is Stephanie's in Elizabeth, 733 Edgar Rd....

                                I ate at that one a few weeks ago. It's at the Bayway Circle.
                                They have another Stephanie's in Roselle Park on Westfield Ave at Walnut street too. Good Food. Their rice is tasty too.

                                  I went to the one that is on Long Island and reviewed on this site (http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=1462).

                                  I didn't find the price to be too bad, but I thought that the food was really salty - and I usually don't mind too much salt. It makes me think that it must have been REALLY salty.

                                    Hello Traveling man. Yeah they use kosher salt on their BBQ meats. But it sounds like they slipped on yours . Thats bound to happen once in a while.

                                    Thanks for providing the pictures. That is typical of what to expect at a Portuguese BBQ place. Good fresh food cooked over hot coals for about a dollar more than what you'd pay at a McDonalds where they serve garbage.

                                      Jerseydawg--

                                      Have you been to the Clark BBQ on Raritan Road just beyond Walnut Ave? I've been there twice in the last few weeks, and it is a winner. Ribs are not slopped in high-fructose corn syrup-based BBQ sauce but have a nice complex flavor with a bit of a chew. Grilled salmon is flavorful and comes out rare when requested. Good steak. French fries should be on the list of controlled substances, they are that addictive, and homemade flan is some of the best anywehere. Skip the soup. The place is small, has a little bar, and prices average $11-15 for mains. This is a true Roadfood place.

                                        Hello, I have been to the Clark BBQ several times. As a matter a fact, I just took my dad there for lunch a few weeks ago and he loved it. He too ordered the ribs. The ribs are seasoned and then cooked over coals while turning so that they cook evenly without getting tough.

                                        The fries have that crisspy texture because they use french fries in which are sprayed with a coating of cornstarch before freezing and packing. Burger Kings fries go through the same technique .

                                        If you want really really good french fries go down the road to the White Diamond restaurant and order fries extra crispy. Also, white Diamond serves the best cheese fries ( I order them extra crispy too).
                                        The amount of cheese that they put on it is unbelievable. Trust me. their cheese fries are a true experience and very addictive.

                                        I ate at that one a few weeks ago. It's at the Bayway Circle.
                                        They have another Stephanie's in Roselle Park on Westfield Ave at Walnut street too. Good Food. Their rice is tasty too.

                                                Some of the hole in the wall places in Perth Amboy are serving up great food. I wish I knew the names but I was always a passanger, but I was very impressed with the food.

                                                  If I am not mistaken, this place is located down where Ferry St and Raymond Blvd merge, and essentially become one way streets through the Ironbound section, right before the roads go under the Pulaski Skyway.

                                                    It is located on Fleming St. at the corner of Church St.

                                                      Burnett BBQ in Union is very popular. One is on Burnet Ave and the other on Stuyvesant Avenue. I have only had the ribs & chicken and they were both fabulous.

                                                        I've been to the one on Burnet ave many times over the years. It's pretty good. There's one on rt. 22 west in union also called "Rt. 22 BBQ"
                                                        Then theres a fairly new one that opened up on the boulevard in Kenilworth called "Reis' BBQ" (Kings BBQ). Their food is really good.

                                                        Also Stephanie's on Westfield ave at the corner of Walnut in Roselle park is good.

                                                          One can do a sort of Mini Tour of Portuguese BBQ places just by driving along a 5 mile stretch of Rt 28 in Middlesex County NJ. All of these places have similar menus, and in each of these places you get a ton of food for $20 or so, and all are eat-in or take out. All have friendly, courteous service. Heading from East to west:

                                                          Dunellen: Planet Chicken 107 N. Washington Ave, just off 28. I think this one is actually Peruvian. I'm sure there are subtle differences in the cooking but to the novice, I can't tell.

                                                          Dunellen: Dunellen BBQ, 626 Bound Brook Ave (Rt 28).

                                                          Bound Brook: 28 BBQ, 303 West Union Av (Rt 28).

                                                          Bring $60, stop at all 3, and you've got enough food to feed a family of 4 for a week. I've done it.

                                                            Yeah it seems like there are pockets of these restaurants throughout the state. I lived in Ironbound Newark for 5 years and there was one at almost every corner. I truly miss being surrounded by so many good restaurnts in which i could walk to.
