Restaurants in Brazil are often designed to handle lunch time customers rather than the typical dinner time guests. This drastically changes how they serve meals, and how they price their food. Many lunch time diners are looking for a very relaxed eating experience, with a nutritious and reasonably quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having numerous hot dishes ready. Pricing is often by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, many places have both options available.
Sandwiches are regarded as a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants typically serve up hot and nutritious dishes for lunch rather than the typical North American simple style lunches.
Meals are typically served and eaten on premises, but many establishments also offer take-out and food delivery services. Of course the establishments differ greatly in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of dishes.
For Brazilians it is very common to go back home during lunch to have their meal with their families. This isn’t always doable, specifically in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have used this opportunity and designed a business model around catering to these individuals. In many of the smaller cities it can be challenging to find a everyday sit down and order off the menu style restaurant.
