Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 August 2017 via mobile

I was introduced to this restaurant by my middle school aged daughter and her friend. This restaurant in Columbia Heights has been open since 1995 and is family owned and operator. It is probably one of the few small businesses to have survived gentrification of the neighborhood. Cafeteria style dining. Friendly staff and quick service. Today i met one customer that had been going there since they opened and was served by one of the twin brothers. If you are in Columbia Heights and want a quick affordable meal then check out Los Hermanos.

I went to this restaurant once before I visited the Dominican Republic and many times after. The food is very authentic! It taste just like my host family cooked in the DR. This visit I ordered the arroz con graduales (rice and peas), carne asada (chicken), maduros (sweet plantains), and a side of chicharron de pollo. It was really good. Definitely will be back soon.

my wife & i stumbled upon this hidden gem while looking to eat at the restaurant next door -which is closed ever tuesday- as bummed as i was to learn this i'm glad they were. Los Hermanos food is so damn delicious!!! the staff was super nice, helpful & informative; A1 customer service. you get healthy portions of your choice of two types of rice & two types of beans, your choice of 1 side & your choice of any protein (you can half & half protein) i will defiantly be back & i'm bringing friends.

This is a close to Santo Domingo flavor as it gets, if you have had the chance to adventure off into the non tourist areas of the DR. The rice is so flavorful that chewing is almost dishonorable....chew slowly. The fish, chicken, flan, etc. etc. etc...and enjoy!!

If you want real, authentic Caribbean food, this is the place to get it. This family owned and operated restaurant has been a longtime fixture in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington DC. The food is "home made" and delicious with a variety of offerings every day. They make an authentic "mofongo" that's as good as you would find in Puerto Rico. Don't expect fancy tables, waiters, or decor. It's a simple place - walk up to the counter, make your selections from the days offerings, pay, and sit at a table & enjoy!
