We were in town for a conference and as we were staying at an Airbnb in the area, we decided to take the suite's owner's advice and frequent one of the restaurants on her list. Brasa is a local eatery located in what appears to be an old garage. It sits on a corner of a relatively busy street, but... More

Pulled pork was average. it never melted in my mouth like lot of reviews i read. Found a big piece of cooked melted plastic in the rice :) the staff was kind... More

Good food to be found here! The yucca was our favorite. The chicken, pork, and corn bread were good. Wished there had been more sauce options-- we got three little dishes along with our meal but all were the same sauce. Of all the restaurants we tried during our visit we weren't necessarily blown away but did enjoy our meal... More

Returned to Brasa, Mpls for first time this year. Menu about the same, and service and food just great! Good prices, generous portions and a distinctly unique menu, with lots of choices. Fun and different crowd, with diversity, good cheer and a willingness to accommodate.

We had a group of eight and ordered several of the large family sized plates. Especially yummy was the beef, creamy chicken and pulled pork. We sat outside and had excellent service! The cornbread was moist and tasty. The beans were on the soupy side, but still tasty. Order the Guacamole, it is outstanding. I would go back again.

This was a great place for lunch. The food was amazing and the service was quick and good. The meats were so tender and flavorful (we had pork and beef). The side choices were also great and we enjoyed the creamed spinach, yams, and plantains. The highlight of the meal was the flour less chocolate cake. I think it is... More

I actually heard Matt Lauer raving on about this place on the Today Show once. We went on recommendation of friends (and Matt Lauer!) and could not have been more disappointed. I would not return. Food was OK. The place was just not for me and service not good.

We went here as my husband has a number of food allergies, so he was able to find things on the menu he could enjoy without worrying about. He had the roast chicken - I had some and it was fantastic. He had yucca fries with it, which I had a taste of, and they were pretty bland. My pulled... More

Location across from White Cas...A location you do not see......a place you not forget. The rotisserie chicken i had for lunch was so good words can not do it justice. The lack luster presentation is brilliant. No fancy sauces bathing our chicken. The taste, flavor and aroma does all the talking.This was the most satisfying healthy lunch i have had... More

It is not the fault of Brasa (or is it) that on the two occassions we have been here our conversations have evolved into an argument. We are a couple that rarely has tension in our relationship, but the moments here have been award winning emotional hell. We don't shout, rather the quiet smoldeing anger...sound fun? LOL. Anyway this has... More
