Thanks.

    seabra's on mcCarter at bridge across from the newark bears stadium is excellent for a good price
    meat is overly salty but a good selection
    nice salad bar with a little sushi
    grilled pineapple is a complimentary dessert
    there is on at the best western home depot shopping center just north of the riverside mall just saw it never have been in seems new and large
    just drink a lot of water to dilute the salt
    there is also one in ridgewood at the corner of broad and ridgewood not bad at all
    enjoy

          I have seen this place but never known anyone who ate there. I didn't know if it was any good.

            it changed ownership a few years ago. it used to be called green somethingelse. the old owners also owned one in queens and it was fair to good. much better on the weekend with the larger turnover. pretty bad during the week. i haven't tried it recently.

          Thanks for the Suggestions! We were a larger group and had some people that were really concerned with costs so we picked up some wine and tried The Stable in Ridgewood. It is a Meat place all the way. They have a large regular menu of meat entrees or you do the Rodizio where they come around with all types of meat for you to chose from. They do not have a salad bar like many Rodizio places but you can order extra things of the menu. It is only about $28 for the all you can eat meat feast. Many places charge a lot more and also get more pricey with the drinks. The BYOB really saved us.
          We ordered a few side dishes, a bunch of desserts and fancy Mocachino coffeess and walked away with a $46 a person bill. Not bad at all.
