About
MINAS Brazilian Steakhouse is named after the southern Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, where executive chef and owner Jose Montes hails from. This state is known all over the country as the heart of the most authentic Brazilian cuisine, such as feijoada, pão de queijo, and feijão tropeiro. During a traditional dining experience at MINAS, the barbecue is served tableside on skewers, in the classic rodizio style by our passadores (carvers) and accompanied by the most traditional Brazilian dishes. MINAS provides great service by qualified and willing staff, presented in a lively ambience. We serve satisfying portions that never leave our guests hungry. Most of the food is cooked in our open kitchen

I asked them to let me know when a specific chocolate was in stock.. They called about 3 weeks later and told it was in.. So I drove 2h to get it, only to be told that they didn't have it.. They had something else...from the same brand.. It's like asking for Canada dry Ginger ale and being told they have Canada dry tonic water.. And to make matters worse, I wanted to pay cash for something and the young girl said she didn't have any change so I could only pay card.. But I could pay a portion of it in cash and the rest in card.. As if walking to the restaurant side and get a $5 dollar bill would be impossible.. I'm yet to dine there but from experience so far I probably won't any time soon. Going to pampa instead..More

Surprisingly amazing. Friendly and funny staff. Excellent service & great food. The salad bar was a bit small. Could expand for more choices.

We are long time customers and always enjoy our trips to Minas. Great service, great food and lots of choice on the buffet. What is there not to love?! Servers were attentive and friendly, there was lots of meat coming around on the rodizio service...and now the added bonus of free underground parking. We can’t wait for our next time!More

Food is always good but the beef a bit too much salty. Service has been declining so much before covid Time, that’s means it’s not my first time in this restaurant. We made a reservation to celebrate a birthday. When birthday cake came it was...nice but without any spoon, we wait 5 minute for one until we told one of the waitress for one. Nobody offer any deserts for the rest of the family. After we called the attention of a person for the waitress to received our deserts order, we wait more than 45 minutes and nobody cares. I have to go and approach four of the waitress chit chatting for our deserts, they told us that the person who took our order didn’t pass it to the kitchen :/ After all of it we got the deserts from the house but the paying part is not the issue, im not there for free food. I’m paying for a “service” , otherwise I can do it at home. At the end of this review, Minas is a great place to eat but, the owners! Please put Attention to Service otherwise my family is not the only one not going anymore to your place. Best regards,More

We went to this restaurant to have some fun and taste something different. The meals were fine, although we felt rather disappointed because it was not as good as we expected it to be. I told the girl who assisted us on our table that...we were celebrating my husband's birthday. She said something nice but we thought there would be a special gesture....like a birthday song in Portuguese, but nothing. It's not to think about coming back! We've been in other restaurants with far better service regarding this.More

This was our first time, but we had wanted to visit for a while. The food exceeded our expectations. The wait staff were very attentive and friendly. The place was immaculately clean. They restaurant was warm, I know this may not seem high on the...importance list,.. but it was cold out, and I hate sitting in a restaurant with my coat on. Food perfectly prepared. SUPER GOOD COFFEE!!!! And excellent Pisco drink.. Will come again soon.More

Minas are open again to diners, and adapting to the conditions. They are still providing takeout, doing quite a brisk business. We were desperate for our Brazilian steak fix, jumping at the chance to return to Minas. For the moment, table service is the order...of the day. We had the Alcatra for two, including a whole piece of beef from the spit, rice, salad, feijoada, cooked bananas, and bread. Portions were huge. Other packages are available (we wish that we had some family with us to justify the Picanha dinner; it was enormous and looked fantastic), or all the Brazilian favourites, al a Carte. We shred a delicious passion fruit mousse. Service was impeccable, and the owners personally preparing and overseeing the service of food. We always find the Minas staff so courteous. We cannot wait for the Rodízio to return.More
