Copacabana Pizza & Grill

BRASIL

Pizza I am not so sure about, but Brazilians and other Astorians alike flock to Copacabana for their Brazilian buffet, which is modest in size, but very loved. The prices range from $5.99/lb if you just eat the hot/salad bar to $7.99/lb if you just eat the meat, which comes churrascaria style and is cut off for you as desired.

On my visit, I would have to recommend sticking mostly the salad bar. The rice and beans will please anyone, and farofa is so light you could eat a pile for cheap. The meats I had seemed to have been around for a while. The picanha was decent, tasted good, but was a bit tough. The chicken hearts seemed like they might have been cooking since yesterday.


It comes on good word though that this is the exception and not the rule, and I will definitely give this place further tries, as good, cheap churrascaria is a great find. The plate above AND a can of soda only cost me $7.68 total. And the atmosphere is right, a quick and casual place to have some Brazilian staples, pay by weight, eat, leave. I almost feel like I am back in Minas Gerais, despite the thoroughly Carioca name.

  1. It's a very good place to eat, but today I got so mad going there... i went to eat with my family and the guy in charge of the meat is a very, but very nasty, stupid and ignorant, I just ask a question about one of the meat and he answered me like if I was stupid and I got so pissed, that we end up leaving the place without eating...I hope the owner pay attention to this, because employee like that, he will be facing the problem that people will not go there to eat anymore, like us...5/19/12
