Now this is a legit Brazilian steakhouse. Great buffet with home-made-like food, incredible meats and friendly staff. Of course, not as fancy as Fogo but still way better as it recalls home. Coming back every Sunday!!!!

As with many Brazilian steakhouses, the 'rodizio' option (all you can eat) is the best way to go. The "buffet" option merely means that it is whatever you want on a plate and then it is weighed. If you have an expansive and empty stomach than the all you can eat route is the way to go. 26.99 and the... More

I loved this place! I am a vegetarian and was hesitant to go into a brasilian barbeque type place. Not the case! They have a great selection of vegetarian options and whatever you get, it is weighted. You just pay for what you eat! Sounds good to me! The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and you are in and... More

Let me start with what I like about Oliveira's. The price is excellent for what you get. You get an all you can eat ticket for about $21.99. That may sound like a lot but when you are talking about all you can eat steak, kielbasa, chicken, pork and more-that is a great price. It is all cooked on a... More

You won't find a better tasting and better priced Brazilian BBQ place. The food is amazing and the staff is so friendly. I come here every time I'm in Boston.

Went to Oliveira's in East Boston to celebrate the world cup and watch Brazil versus Columbia on Friday July 4th. We arrived at the restaurant at 3:30 prior to the 4 o'clock start. Last four seats in the joint. Welcomed by patrons at table next to us as "their friends". Helped that wife and brother were wearing Brazil game jerseys.... More

Went with my family this past weekend and we were pleasantly surprised! The ribs were amazing and we really enjoyed the options in the salad bar. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. The only complaint I would say we had was that the Mango juice drink was incredibly watered down - almost undrinkable. The atmosphere at the restaurant was nothing fancy... More

For a buffet, this place can actually be a pretty healthy place to eat, if you choose from the very fresh fruits and salads. Their barbeque is very good, and not as salty as some of the Brazilian barbeque "rodizios".service was friendly. Atmosphere was bright and clean. Definitely a good deal.
