Brazilians love buffets. These establishments usually serve salads, meats freshly grilled while in line, beans, rice, various pasta dishes, fresh fruits, and many desserts.
Buffet style establishments are often assumed be an all-you-can-eat for a single price, but Buffets in Brazil aren't always an all-you-can-eat style, often the food you choose is weighed and priced by the kg. Most places offer up both a charge by weight and a more expensive all-you-can-eat option. These establishments will frequently have plenty of locals present, especially at noon which is regarded as the primary meal of the day. Since lunch is the primary meal for the day, many locals expect a hot and hearty meal when they aren't able to make it home.
Restaurants in Brazil are generally designed to handle lunch time customers rather than the typical dinner time diners. This greatly changes how they serve meals, and how they price meals. Many lunch time diners are looking for a very simple dining experience, with a nutritious and fairly quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having various hot dishes ready. Pricing is frequently by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, the majority of places have both options available.
Sandwiches are considered a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants typically serve up hot and healthy dishes for lunch instead of the typical North American simple style lunches.
Meals are usually served and consumed on premises, but many establishments also offer take-out and food delivery services. Of course the dinning establishments vary greatly in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of dishes.
For Brazilians it is very common to go back home for lunch to have their meal with their loved ones. This isn’t always practical, especially in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have taken up the slack and designed a business around catering to these people. In many of the smaller cities it can be difficult to find a standard sit down and order off the menu style business.
