Minas Emporium Brazilian BBQ Restaurant Review
I love going to an international restaurant and hearing the native language being spoken all around me. That is totally the case at Minas Emporium. It is tucked away in a strip mall underneath a liquor store on Delk Road in Marietta but don't let that fool you, the food is wonderful.
Basically, it is a buffet of Brazilian goodies. They have plenty of items pre-made displayed for you to try. They also have the Brazilian BBQ going and this is where it's at!!!
The guy tending to the meats is very helpful and asks you what type of meat you like; lean, salty, or what kind of meat. You can go up as many times as you like, so it is a great way to try everything. They also had plantains on the buffet that were delicious.
The sauteed okra was delicious too. I also tried the bacon wrapped chicken and you know how anything with bacon tastes so I won't bother to tell you how it was! The grilled rump roast and sun-dried steak were my two favorites. The sun-dried steak was salty and tasted like a dried yet tender brisket. I asked them if they always had that for BBQ and they told me to call ahead and they would make sure it would be there, how is that for service?!?!
People are very friendly and helpful. The TV's are playing racy Brazilian soap operas that practically made me blush, it certainly didn't feel like Marietta inside. It is extremely popular with the Brazilians and according to my kickboxing instructor can get very crowded on the weekends. I can see why when the price tag is $10.99 for all you can eat.
Tip - Bring an appetite!
Price - $10.99 for the buffet and BBQ
