This is my FAVORITE place in Minneapolis to eat!!! The food is exceptional and you will not be disappointed. All of the meats are so flavorful and not dry in the slightest. I would highly recommend ordering the Yucca Fries. They are like a steak fry but they have so much more flavor than your typical french fry. The vibe at the restaurant is really cool. You can sit inside or outside and when the weather is nice they keep the garage doors in the front open so you can have the best of both worlds. They have a fireplace and some seating on the side as well. Great place and I highly recommend that you go!

A perfect casual go-to spot. Loved the family style service and the outdoor seating. Tried the roasted chicken and pork, chix was my favorite. Fried plantains were sweet and creamy. Would love to go back and try more.

Ordered the pulled pork, smoked beef, red beans & yellow rice, fried plantains, crispy yuca, and cornbread. Everything was okay, but nothing stood out. Our favorite things were the yuca and the beans/rice, and for a place like this you'd expect their meat to be the favorite of the night, but both the pork and beef were somewhat boring.

I used to LOVE going here. We'd mostly do the in-house thing at the St Paul location, and get take-out in Minneapolis. And both were awesome with the only exception of this year, the sweet plantains have been horrible every time. Which is a real bummer since that's one of the biggest draws for us. But still everything was super yummy. Last time we went to the Mpls restaurant, the entire meal was a huge let down. The pork lacked flavor and was greasy, the plantains of course were again woody and tasteless even after they brought out a new batch. The rest of my party weren't impressed with their food either, and we decided not to go back again. Not sure what happened.

I have been to brasa before and this was my second time going there. I loved the food, I always have. The Rotisserie chicken is excellent,the juices are fresh and all around the portions are spot on. I love the vibe of the place and though parking can be a hash sometimes,it is hardly a complaint. However on my last visit; my server Kim came by after we had sat and asked for our drink orders. I had my lemonade and my companion had her orange juice within 5 minutes after we had sat at the table. Then after some commiseration with my order (didn't well understand some items on the menu,my fault),we had our order in and this is where things went awfully wrong. We sat there for well close to 50 mins before she walked by and told us that it would be a moment longer before the food was ready. About 10 mins later we had our food. So i believe this is what happened,she took our order at the table and instead of putting it in right away,she tended to something else and completely forgot,it's not until she walked by our table that she realized she had forgotten and hastily put it in. This is evidenced by practically everyone else that came to the restaurant later than we had and gotten their food before we did (the family next to us had practically ordered the same thing we had). To make it worse, she did not come by after bringing the food to even ask if we needed our drinks refilled,seeing as how we had been cooling on our laurels for well close to an hour. So we just ate our delicious food and i made a point to tip her well besides the obvious failures. I just did not know the tasteful way to handle it at the time despite my huge disappointment. I love their awesome food and i will make a point to go back,but it will most likely be take out. I was disappointed, really disappointed and i hope this is a slight blight to their otherwise well run establishment. Point is, i do not recommend a sit down.

3 of the 50ish customers were classical hipsters. It draws a rugby team vibe for some homestyle post game quiet revelry with a pretty ethnically and racially and generationally diverse crowd. It rained for awhile, but it let up before we left.

Wonderful food... I am visiting the City and I came expecting ordinary but I experienced extraordinary food. The grits and cornbread delicious!!!

Brasa is the perfect combination of comfort food and flawless execution. I had the Pork and Egg Bowl along with the seasonal Sweet Potato and Spice beer. The pork was tender, moist, and flavorful. The jalapeño spinach and yellow rice were divine, and egg yolk dripping over the top was the perfect comforting tie in. If I lived in Minneapolis, this would become our regular place for casual meals. I am going to have to stop by again before I leave and try something else. My waiter was kind, thoughtful, and very knowledgeable.
