went on a thursday night at 7 pm and only 2 other couples in there. Wonderful fresh guacamole with good selection of latin american /mexican mix type food. Was not brave enough to try the beef tongue but the shrimp dish and the combo tamale enchilada dish was good. Service was good as well. not fancy but good food.

Selected La Brasa after reading favorable reviews. We were not disappointed! The place only seats about 40 people and is not fancy, but we loved it. The meals were delicious (salmon and lomo saltado). Everything was fresh, hot, and presented very nicely. Portions were generous and they happily substituted sides since we shy away from too many carbs. Two meals and a bottle of wine cost about $40. The entire staff was extremely pleasant and friendly. Service was great. This place will be a regular stop in the future.

My wife and I eat regularly at this restaurant, even though we live about 50 miles away. The food is always well prepared, has great taste and is provided in very generous portions. Service is prompt, courteous and correct. Prices are very easy on the budget and the value provided for the price paid is outstanding.

Please don't expect fancy furniture and a "snazzy " local - this is a working class restaurant that provides great tasting and quality food at a very decent prize with good service and a nice family atmosphere.

Highly recommended!

It looks a local and divey, since it's small and simple and away from the usual crowds on Rockville Pike. But the food is amazing, the service is friendly and homey, the prices are good. I'll be going back.
