Portuguese & Mexican food

*note* the menu is terrible! They have much more than the menu! Unfortunately it’s out of sight! So you have to ask. They have a full bar, they have bottled drinks, different sodas, various bottled drinks, they have juice fountains (like lemonade machines, but not lemonade lol) they have desserts like flan, that aren’t on the menu

They also have food specials not on the menu.

I had the spare ribs with rice and beans
The beans are red kidney beans, the rice is yellow with some peas in it.

The ribs were pretty good. The small ribs were a little over cooked, but the large ones were perfect and juicy! All of them, the meat fell off the bone. The rice was good the beans ok. I also got a side of Portuguese bread it was great!! (The 2nd best part of the meal, its a lot like good traditional Italian bread.) The portion was huge! It also came with so many corn tortillas I couldn’t possibly eat.

The best part of the meal was a bowl of sauce they leave on the table. Looking around there were different sauces on different tables, there was a green sauce, a oily red peppery sauce, and the one i got an orangey creamy peppery sauce (I don’t know what it was and forgot to ask) but it was spicy and had a great taste!

I got flan takeout which was not too great, the portion was tiny and nothing to write home about. The eat in portion looks huge! And it’s made in a glass bowl instead of the aluminum takeout tin, which may make a big difference.

I drive by all the time and this place is always packed!!! That might have also made a difference. I will definitely give this place another chance.

**note** Keep your eye out here for an update. Also don’t forget to check every article for updates! I typically add on to most articles.

There is also a Portuguese market & deli attached to the building, but there isn’t access from the restaurant.

Restaurant Review: McWhorter Barbecue, Newark NJ

Restaurant Review: McWhorter Barbecue, Newark NJ

I wasn’t going to post this, because it is locational, but this place rocks soooooo much!

Summary:
1. This place is amazing! 5 stars
2. Not fancy, just amazing healthy food!
3. Amazing Rotisserie chicken, and the ribs are incredible!
4. The combo at $12-13 is crazy! I honestly don’t know how they can afford to give away all that food for only $12. I am serious!!
5. Make it healthy by requesting salad and black beans instead of rice and French fries.
6. The size is crazy!! You get a giant oval metal platter piled with food, enough for two meals unless you are a big guy like me then it’s one big stuffed meal!
7. The place is always packed! Lunch time it’s filled with police and military. We used to go there all the time for lunch 😉
8. The owner is a super friendly extremely kind older man. His English isn’t very good, but he’s so nice!
9. The staff is friendly and speak: Portuguese, Spanish and English.
10. The hours are excellent:
From 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM
7 Days a Week

You will love this place! If you live far, it’s worth the drive! I promise you!
