What a great find! This place was off the beaten path and not easily accessible but so worth the trip. Great Latin flavors. I had the Lomo and found the seasonings were perfect. The salsa was fresh and the service great. Very reasonably priced. Definitely Recommended!

Excellent Salvadorean food. We questioned the GPS as it led us into the neighborhood where the restaurant is located between a car repair shop and the backside of an office building. It did not feel unsafe, just a bit odd for what we had heard was one of the best restaurants in town. The pupusas were tasty, the chicken tamale... More

I am on a three day business trip here and dined here twice. Glad I did. It is a hole in wall small place but food and staff are great. The fish soup was fabulous! And the trout with shrimp was fresh and delicious. If you are Puerto Rican, feels like you are in PR in one of those small... More

Great food in a family restaurant. Everyone is so nice and friendly. And the prices are cheap. What else can we ask? I can't count how many times we went. We recommended to so many people, nobody was disappointed. Chicken is delicious. I recommend to try fajitas, lomo saltado or bistec encebollado, my favorites. Don't forget also the tres leche...

went on a thursday night at 7 pm and only 2 other couples in there. Wonderful fresh guacamole with good selection of latin american /mexican mix type food. Was not brave enough to try the beef tongue but the shrimp dish and the combo tamale enchilada dish was good. Service was good as well. not fancy but good food.

Selected La Brasa after reading favorable reviews. We were not disappointed! The place only seats about 40 people and is not fancy, but we loved it. The meals were delicious (salmon and lomo saltado). Everything was fresh, hot, and presented very nicely. Portions were generous and they happily substituted sides since we shy away from too many carbs. Two meals... More
