What people say

"Among the long list of famous sandwiches in Porto, you will find cachorrinhos. A pretty basic concept with toasted bread, sausage, cheese, and a touch of spice, cachorrinhos are perfect to snack on with a cold beer. Cervejaria Gazela is a not about the ambience but about the food. Go here to order several rounds of cachorrinos and other famous Porto sandwiches such as the "prego." Funny story - We meant to order the famous prego sandwich but ordered "prego em prato." Turns out "em prato" is Portugese for "on plate" so we got meat on a plate with friend instead of the sandwich but still yummy! "

"If Anthony Bourdain says you have to eat here, then you have to. Right? A beloved spot for hotdogs since 1962, this place is a must for a quick, cheap but delicious bite. There are 2 locations very close to each other, but I am partial to the smaller cervejaria. Spots at the counter are limited but the line moves fast. Enjoy a cachorrinho, served on a crispy baguette with sausage and cheese. It is then topped with spicy oil and sliced into small pieces. The fries are hot and the beer is cold. Don't miss this spot while out & about in Porto!"
"Another traditional cuisine is a Cachorrinhos; this is a baguette filled with cheese and meat, often served with fries and a beer. The best place to find this dish is at Gazela."
