“My Favorite Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

I love this place. As a local in the area I come here as much as 4 times per mothn. The owner JB is a cool person that is always around to come to your table and say hi. The staff go the extra mile to make sure you are well taken care of and feel at home. You can ask for Pippen to be your server as he is a super cool and friendly dude. But if he happens to be off, you are just as good with Angelica or Cinthya. Carlos at the bar will make you any drink you want. The place has a pretty god variety of beers and liquors, so if you drink it, they probably carry it. The place has a fun decor with antiques hanging off the walls and flat screen tvs playing all kind of sports. The food is really good, but you are better off ordering a steak of burger as this is the house specialty.

This restaurant was just a short walk from our condo at playa azul. The food was good, great atmosphere with cool antique wall hangings. TV with sports playing. Nice bar. Friendly staff.

“Great food both times we ate there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Chose this restaurant because it was within walking distance to the condo my husband and I were renting while staying in Luquillo. Keep in mind this is your average run of the mill restaurant/bar, so no fine dining here and no fancy dishes to speak of. That being said, all the food my husband and I had was delicious and seemed to be of high quality. We tried the nachos as an appetizer, which were great. My husband really liked his burger, and I had the beer battered mahi mahi which I had never had before, and it was the most tender mahi mahi I have ever eaten. The second time we went a few days later my husband ordered the ribs, and for me, being from the South, it's hard to find a place that cooks ribs well, but this place definitely did. The sauce was sweet and slightly smoky which we enjoyed overall. The prices are reasonable, the service good both times, and the food filling and cooked just right. Sometimes you just want to go out and eat some good food with no bells and whistles in a casual atmosphere, and Brass Cactus lived up to that. They have a decent selection of entrees and drinks. If we go back to Luquillo we would definitely eat there again.
