    Most everything is great, though this critic is partial to the deeply flavored rice and pigeon peas with local ham, and the cabbage salad, an ephemeral, minty elevation of traditional cole slaw. Read more

    Go for the succulent pulled pork (alone or nestled atop a roll, doused in pickled cabbage and the famed, addictive "green sauce") and so-good-it-can’t-be-good-for-you creamed spinach Read more

    Try as we might, we haven't come across a single item we didn't like. Sprinkle the Hot Pepper Vinegar on your scratch made tortilla chips - ADDICTIVE!

    The rice and beans are the best, just a little spicy. Be warned, though. In the evening the service is excruciatingly slow. It's worth it, unless you're in a hurry.

    The sandwiches are amazing-pulled chicken and pork! Also the sides are tasty and you can get a few to share. One of my favorite places!

    Inventive non-alcoholic drinks, well-seasoned slow cooked meats, and soulful sides make for a great meal. Restaurant opens all windowed doors in the summer for a fresh breeze.

    The mojo sauce that comes with the slow-roasted pork should be used on everything: pulled chicken, yucca fries, shoe leather, everything.

    Smoked & Braised Beef: slow cooked, chopped, and seasoned with the Brasa's "signature" mild sauce. Tender and robust, with a hint of sweetness, it just shouts: "beef!" Read more

    The last few times I have been to Brasa the food was not worth the high price. I would not recommend it- the pulled pork was dry and the green tomatoes were so thin and only 3 slices.
