We leave disappointed. It does not necessarily stop us from coming occasionally but we don't make it our regular spot!

We were visiting our kids in St. Paul and I "googled" Latin restaurants and thank goodness we found this GEM!! The service was good on our first trip, but the meal was amazing, the chicken was seasoned to perfection, the rice and beans were flawless, the fried yucca and tostones were just like we have at home. We ate to... More

I have been frequenting Brasa for many years. Each time I dine it is a new and amazing experience. The food is melt in your mouth good. The plantains and chicken, love them. If you have not tried the food here you are missing out!

I had lunch here for the first time with friends. Instead of ordering individual plates, we ordered several small and medium sizes of pulled chicken, beef, and pork as well as rotisserie chicken. We also ordered a variety of sides - all delicious and tasty. Service was very personal and efficient, even on a busy Sunday.

I had planned to have Brasa cater our wedding for 14 of us. But when I found out that they would not cater some of their best menu items, because they did not travel well, I made reservations to have the wedding party have dinner there the night before our wedding. Half of the family were of Nicaraguan descent and... More

We live close by and have eaten here many times. Informal, good service, and interesting, flavorful and well made dishes which are very inexpensive. The daily specials are always worth trying . Overall excellent value. Garage door type windows open in summer

On a sunny Saturday I came here for lunch. I tried the pulled chicken sandwich with hot peppers aka jalapeños. The sandwich was outstanding with lots of flavor. It looks like they have some outdoor seating and there are 4 garage doors they can open during the warmer months. Grand avenue is a fun area. I would definitely recommend trying... More

The crowd waiting for a table was intimidating, but once the food arrived at our table, I could understand why. It is definitely comfort food, but healthy comfort food. I came here for the local grown and raised taste and I certainly got it. The service was also great: kind, friendly, helpful staff that doesn't forget about you even when... More
