Came here around 9pm for ribs while we awaited for someone to land at Newark Airport. The Ribs are the best even at an hour before closing. Will stop here each time we are in the area for the Ribs and a glass of Sangria

All our food was overcooked from the veggies to the fish.Sangria was cheap wine and Sprite topped with vodka (?). The place was fully packed which could mean that I was unlucky but....!

The food is cooked and is fresh. There is also a variety of foods, and not just chicken and French fries. The prices are not bad.

Some friends and I decided to go out for some food but couldn't settle on 1 type of cuisine. We settled on Algarve and the menu covered us all. From garlic shrimp, to pasta to wings we all were able to find something we liked on the menu and they cooked it all well. The only thing better than the... More

You can not beat the Pork Ribs here. We were in town dropping someone off at Newark Airport so came here for dinner. This is our 3rd time here and weren't disappointed at all.

I didn't like the food at all. Nice for drinks only! Nice environment, had everything to be really good but is not. I eat anything but I had a hard time to enjoy the food I've ordered.

Love this little neighborhood gem! Right around the corner from my guesthouse, this great BBQ has the best ribs and chicken combo, for such a great price! Their seafood BBQ looks amazing too! This place is full of locals, so you know it's good! They get your order super quick too. Generous portions for an amazing price! My new favorite... More
