Fun, iconic and great food!

Adventurous for Minnesotans, was so glad my son brought me here. Really enjoyed the eclectic vibe, brought some red sauce home for hubby. Try to get there when it won't be crowded (don't know if that ever happens!) because it's small, but worth the wait. I enjoyed trying a few food items I'd... read more

This place is small and you may have to wait, because it is quite popular. I like the idea of not having a huge menu, but if you don't like chicken, beef or pork, you are out of luck. The place used to be a service station/garage and they didn't change much - the big doors are still there and... More

We have been to this restaurant 3 times. The menu looks great but not everything tasted as good as mentioned by other reviewers. For example, the rotisserie chicken is only good if freshly prepared. The last time I ate there the chicken pieces were dry so I figured it must've been under a warmer. The salad with mozzarella is awful.... More

After hearing so much about Brasa over the years, we decided we had to try it. A smaller place with a hip, artsy vibe. The place gets busy, so get there early. We didn't end up having to wait too long, esp for a Saturday night. The menu offers a number of choices including a number of things people may... More

Brasa never disappoints. The food is delicious...the only problem is I want to get ALL of the sides! In terms of the meat options, the beef and pulled pork are both delicious (I prefer the beef, haven't tried the chicken). I've tried pretty much all of the sides and they really are all delicious! My favorites are the Crispy Yuka,... More

Just moved to the area from out of state. Fiance and I have been walking around the area and trying new restaurants. Went to Brasa on a Friday night around 6:15. We were told we would have to wait about 20 minutes, so we ordered wine to drink while we waited. It was quite crowded in there between the amount... More

There are so many vegetarian sides and options you can piece together to create an ideal meal. Yams, yuca, beans and rice, black bean fritters. Amazing. I've heard the meats are moist and flavorful. Some of the inside tables are a little squished and awkward, but you'll forget the cramped quarters once you taste the food.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at this unique spot! Located in what appears to be a re-purposed gas station, the atmosphere was neat and the service was good. We very much enjoyed the sandwiches (especially the pork) but our favorite part was sharing the sides! We loved the yams with andouille, cornbread, spinach with jalapenos - all of it was... More

Went for a second time to Brasa early on a Saturday afternoon. Even after 1:00, the wait for a table for 4 was about 30 minutes which speaks to the popularity of the place. After a round of Surly's, we ordered a large portion of pulled pork and a number of side dishes to share. Collard greens, yams with andouille... More
