This relaxed place certainly has character. And the waiters are friendly and attentive. The Caipirinhas have a nice balance between a strong alcohol taste, lime, and sugar. And the chicken is fantastic, which is enough for me. The rest of the dish is average, but I am not too bothered by that after another Caipirinha.

this looks like the biggest whole in the wall, slummy exterior but I will vouch for it being the best chicken. I only speak from my massive amount of chicken Ive consume over the years. the staff do not speak a lick of English so it comes down to point and order on the menu. the chicken is grilled for us carb/fat watchers and its not boneless but the meat falls off the bone and it has an spicy garlic sauce. The price is 35 bucks for 2, and try the broccoli rice.

Right in the corner with Visconte de Piraja and close to a lot of fancy places, this grill and bar is a simple yet delicious alternative.
Not good if you're picky and looking for fancy places. Here there are few tables and most of the people eat on the benches one close to each other.
Cannot get mistaken with your order: grilled galeto, white or brococli rice, french fries.
A simple byt delicious food with excellent value for money.
You'll love the authentic carioca atmosphere simple and unpretentious.

Good fresh chicken but seemed a bit expensive for what I actually got. Nice to sit on the street and people watch though.

Nice street corner restaurant serving various chicken dishes with fries or rice. Not quite Nandos but very tasty all the same. Would go back.
