“Aftermath..... Blazing Toothpicks!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Wow, this place is really something. Meat, meat, and more meat. They have a visible kitchen with pork, beef, fowl cooking on skewers on open flames. The servers grab a skewer and knife and make the rounds of the tables. Unless you wave them off, they will cut you a chunk off the skewer and on to your plate. They have enough meat to win this game. You will give up first! Guaranteed! They also have a great soup and salad bar with EVERYTHING. This is a unique place to bring your guests. It is a bit pricey. Over 50 Bucks per head, but you need to try it at least once. They stock lots of toothpicks!

“First Time Here”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Braza Lena in Islamorada is an OUTSTANDING PLACE TO DINE!!!!! Our server was Juan..very professional, courtious and kind to requests. The two gachoes that served us were magnificent! We dined here on a Sunday, early evening. We were seated in the best possible place for indoor and outdoor viewing. You look onto the ocean where there are many people doing amazing activities on a windsurf board!!! The parking is ample and at no charge. The salad bar is the best one could ever possibly ask for. What are you waiting for....just go there as soon as possible....the mouth watering food is tantalizing and the service is beyond any level of outstanding!!!!! Cannot wait until our next visit!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Well worth the money”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

So much food; so little time! And don't go on a full stomach. You want to savor every bit. First time for our friends. They were in awe.

“One of the better Brazilian BBQs I have been to”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

After a week in the keys we decided to take a day off from seafood. We ate so much at this restaurant that we didn't eat a full meal for two days! The salad bar was ample and had a few unique things. But the meat was of a better quality than some BBQ I have been to. The servers were attentive. Fun!

“Masses of Meat”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

it was a quiet night...in fact we were the only occupied table in the restaurant! As a result, the service was excellent although I suspect it always is. We were plied with so much meat I thought I would burst. The salad bar is also very good and ample for those that might not want the meat although that's the reason for going. It is VERY good meat and there's a lot of it. One danger is that it can be overcooked as it keeps going back on the grill so you might not want the first slice. if you have room for dessert you must have starved yourself before arriving.
