We have been to other “premium” brazilian steakhouses. At the price that we paid, Café Mineiro was a good deal. We got a $60 dinner date special that included wine. Our service was great and the meats were tasty (especially the garlic steak). The after...dinner cinnamon pineapple was also really good. We’d go againMore

Overall my server was great, the food was tasty and the service and price was good! 2 meals and bottle of wine for 59!!!Only disappointment the bartender on Friday the 15th around 7:00 was blowing his nose and cleaning it behind the bar and never...washed his hand or used sanitizer! That was a big turn off , he really need to be told about that! Not because of Covid. But just in general, that is not a good luck! He looked like he was the only the Caucasian employee, I am telling you so he can be properly trained! You go to the bathroom to clean your nose and make sure you wash your hand in there also! My favorite was the. Garlic steak, lamb and the pineapple! Never knew pineapple roasted with cinnamon and etc.. was soo good!More

I don't really know if this is how Brazilian food is supposed to taste like but a couple of steaks were very salty. The rest of the steaks were great. The salad bar is decent size and the buffet items, including soups were delicious. In...the desert section I attempted to try the rice pudding...I have never had rice pudding where the sauce is watery and rice is still "whole," not crushed. Also, you must specify the correct temperature of the steak when you are seated or you're going to see either blood on it or totally burnt meat. Ambience is good. Wait staff is pleasant and definitely trained well.More

First, I'm not sure why people complain about COVID safety. If you are that scared of catching a virus, don't go out. These kinds of businesses are doing everything they can to stay open and survive. Do you really think removing tables is going to...keep you safe? All it does is remove revenue from a business that employees people. Just stay home if you are going to complain. That said, we had a great time here. Party of 8 and we made reservations about 3 hours before we planned to arrive. Table was ready shortly after we arrived and we were early. If you have never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse, you have to go for the all you can eat experience. The selections were great and we all had more than our fill. Our waiter was excellent and checked in on us multiple times. If there was something specific we were looking for, he had it sent over. The price is hard to beat compared to other places. And kids 5 and under eat free which was great for us as we had 3 kids with us. The sides and salad bar met expectations and everything was fresh. Do yourself a favor and if you are in town, check this place out. It isn't as fancy as something like Texas De Brazil, but the food was excellent as was the service and you are going to spend way less money.More

In the middle of the pandemic the seating area was set with less tables. But for a few months only. It is now with the original setting, tables are too close and without any sort of separation panels as we see in other places. There...are no plastic gloves offered to be wore when serving food yourself on the self service area. The place can be crowded with families with children and friends having a good time. But this is just not the only reason I´m not returning soon, and will consider it if I hear they have improved this issue and also the condition of the restrooms. The walls, doors, latches, ceiling are all showing age with rust, stains, dirt and poor ventilation. The corrosion from urine vapors in the metal parts are notorious. It tells this is not recent, but a process developed for a long time. These bathrooms are barely moped, not thoroughly cleaned and simply not renovated probably for many years. Do you think cleanliness at bathrooms and kitchen should be the same or different at this place?More

No social distancing- super crowded, loud with many people talking and many of the people arriving not wearing masks. Many diners, all of course not wearing masks with tables very close together. Rodizio service was prompt and gracious but don’t expect prompt service or a...correct order if you order a la carte from the menu.More

Ate here one night on our honeymoon that we stayed offsite from parks. So glad we did, it was one of the best meals our entire trip. Service was just as amazing as the food. I would highly recommend eating here

Went with friends and family.. We got the buffet with table served meat.. $24.95.. Garlic bread served on table was good.. Sausages & Garlic sirloin were great.. Buffet has amazing cheese lasagna.. Yuca pork mix, cole slaw, chick pea salad, mayo salad, rice pudding, dulce...coconut were all good.. Parm pork was dry and lamb was over cooked.. But over all an excellent meal.. Staff are all wearing masks and helpful and cheerful.. There are cheaper options if you so desire.. Would recommend!More

Definitely not worth your time or money. Stopped here for lunch with my family. Meats were good, AuGratin potatoes were good....everything else....not so great. Everything else was not seasoned well and the mayo based salads all tasted the same. The restaurant was clean and the...servers were very nice and attentive. I hate to give bad reviews...but the food was very disappointing!More
