“Omg - what a surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Thank you, Trip Advisor. I would never have found this place. We took the auto train from Washington to Florida, and needed a place for dinner. We could not find this one and we settled for another to our regret. We found this place for lunch and were very impressed. The chicken is superb, there is no other way to describe it. My wife had the taco salad, which was also excellent with tasty chicken aplenty. This is not a sitdown full-service restaurant. It is chicken on a spit, serve yourself at the counter. It is wonderful, and perfect for two tourists passing through.

“Fantastic Peruvian Chicken and Tex-Mex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We eat at La Brasa at least a couple of times a month. Their chicken is absolutely fantastic and our very picky kids devour it. We've also tried their Tex-Mex food which is excellent. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is very friendly. We will continue to visit this restaurant on a regular basis.

“Really Good Food Done Right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Set in the middle of a strip mall, La Brasa Chicken get's your attention from the delicious odor of charcoal cooking. We were like "What smells so good?" so we found out.

The chicken was cooked perectly; crispy skin, juicy, not overcooked or dry. We have been back a few times,and the food is consistantly good.

The sides were intriguing, Never having "Yuca" before, I had to try it. Combined with the sauce served, the Yuca was so good, I found myself wanting more and more.

When ya hear "rice and beans", I tend to think bland and boring, but wow, the rice and beans here were seasoned perfectly, and had such a great flavor, it really made me rethink rice and beans.

There is a nice variety on their menu; you can get steak if you want. It's not a fancy sit-down fine dining place, more of a take out place, but the food is so worth it, and the price is really good too, I was surprised.

“chicken and meat are still good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

But the staff is not cleaning up the front very well. Lot of trash ont he floor and such. And the drink machine is dispensing uniformly awful soda's/lemonade. So we deinitely got to take some points off for that.
