The food and staff are top notch. It’s not cheap, but it is worth the price. Lines can get pretty long, but it is worth the wait. My favorite is the Flora, and my husband loves the philly.

After visiting Monticello, we decided to try Brazos. The tacos and margaritas are delicious! Three of us built our own and one ordered off the menu. Everyone was very Happy with our meal. Fast, friendly, affordable - a great place to eat!

Brazo's isn't far from the downtown mall, but it feels like an oasis with their pleasant patio and happy atmosphere. We love heading down for lunch and regret that we can't order some of their great margaritas to go with their fantastic tacos every time....More

Low key, casual, counter service –is there any real taco place that's not all that? I'm a huge fan of the taco. From ultra-authentic to fusion-style, I like them all. Brazos is more on the fusion end of that spectrum –never saw watermelon relish on...More

Everything is made great and the staff is very knowledgeable. My wife is very allergic and we have never had any issues. Try the FTW or Picadillo.
