The best brazilian food I have ever tasted! The "pastel de carne seca" is delicious; and the bolinho de bacalau is a culinary experience. Try the chop, a classic draft beer that goes very well with the other pasteis! Local brazilians eat there so authentic brazilian food is very well cooked!

Coronel bar is consistently one of the best eatery-and-drinkery establishments in São José dos Campos. The food is always tasty, the environment is fun and the service is genuine and simpatico. Try the feijoadas on Wednesday and the BBQ all-you-can-eat rodízio (I believe everyday). You will not be disappointed.

The complete and best Fejoada ever eaten! So good, tasty and well served... The quantities are sufficients and we enjoyed eating It slowly so the pleasure lasts more and more. Should try it on Saturdays.

The place is great for after work drinks. But also, amazing to meet your friends for a night drinking. The draft beer is nice and your glass will never be empty. :-) food is a specialty. Reserve some room for the "pastel", you will never forget that. Doesn't matter the season, you will always find the place full of people.

Sit outside or inside, but enjoy the best local food and drink. To list anything specifically would be unjust to the many treats and great atmosphere they offer...

Foreigners, don't miss the "pastel". It is a brazilian specialty and this one is among the best of all. Besides, there is a lot more: coxinha, bolinho caipira (see the pics on Google).

I checked TripAdvisor for a decent restaurant in São Jose dos Campos. Coronel was on number three. The first two were European/Pasta/Pizza/Italian type and we wanted something local. Glad we chose Coronel. There was an English menu, the staff didn't really master the language but they tried their best! Compliments! We skipped the menu and enjoyed the local snacks that... More

Coronel is known for its unrivaled service. It is impossible to be caught with your pint empty. Do not forget to try the Pastels (shrimp, jerk beef with cream cheese or palm heart) with a little bit of Tabasco. You can be served just by standing on the sidewalk or you can sit somewhere inside if you arrive early in... More

Coronel is the kind of places that everybody feels good. Good food, specially the "carne seca with catupiry" and "bacalhau" pastries, and really good cold beer. It is not too easy to find a place to parking your vehicle until 18:00h, but after that is not too dificult and that is the happy hour beggining. Tough is getting home on... More
