Meet the Team

Brooklyn Robertson and Family

Brooklyn Robertson


Brooklyn was born in Utah, and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. His father was a professor at the Air Force Academy and at an early age he demanded excellence. Brooklyn went on to graduate at the top of his class with a Chemistry Degree from Colorado State University, and then received his Doctorate of Biochemistry from the University of Texas. Brooklyn has worked side by side with some the world's leading orthopedic and spine surgeons, spent years doing research for the Center For Blood Research at Harvard Medical School, and sold many medical patents. He’s traveled the world in search of adventure, married the love of his life, and had two beautiful children. Yet still at the end of the day nothing could have prepared him for owning a restaurant like Brooklyn’s Down South. With the help of Mirna Lenus and Andrea Garcia, Brooklyn and his family opened Brooklyn’s Down South in 2015. Each year since opening, they have strived to expand and improve all aspects of the restaurant. A lifelong goal for this piece of Buda’s history is to create an inviting atmosphere that can be enjoyed and benefitted from by the community and put Buda on the map. The same excellence and determination that was demanded of Brooklyn throughout his life, is the same excellence he expects of the staff and food quality at Brooklyn’s Down South. There's really no other restaurant like Brooklyns - we always strive to be the best!
