We all got together and had a wonderful dinner. The staff is always nice and the food is great. The portion for the price is great. A lot for little and it is great tasting. One of the best Portuguese food restaurants in the area.

When in Fall River MA you have to eat Portuguese food. We found this fantastic restaurant for lunch....home made soup, small steak sandwich is huge and tastes incredible. We enjoyed our meal so much and would love to come back.
