Places 2 Check Out: Minden Meat and Deli

Posted: Updated:

As you drive through the heart of Minden, there's a new hotspot that's becoming the heartbeat of the community. Minden Meat and Deli opened with the idea of offering Douglas County a great place to grab fresh meats, seafood and quick sandwiches. But as soon as they opened, they became a restaurant from demand. Demand for food like the giant bacon burger or the tri tip sandwich made with Yukon gold marinated meat. Kevin Mary is the owner. "So we take 50 pounds of tri tip, marinate it in a pressure tumbler so it pumps all the air out and spins it marinates it in 25 minutes what you couldn't do in 3 days. It infuses the marinade into the meat and it's fantastic."

You can buy the tri tip or skirt steak for home as well. Or how about buffalo? Ever tried that? Or Verlasso salmon from the cool waters of Chile. Any of these items can be hand picked by you and then made to order for a quick and easy dinner. "Take it, weigh it out. It's that plus $10 we'll cook it and serve it with a twice baked potato, french fries, salad and vegetable."

While your dinner is cooking, you can pick a bottle of wine. Kevin says he carries wines you may have never heard of and there's no corkage fee. His beer selection comes from around the world and they also do beer and wine pairing dinners. The latest one was with Mammoth Brewing Company. For a new business, there's already a lot of fun things happening at Minden Meat and Deli.

Minden Meat and Deli is located at 1595 Hwy 395 in downtown Minden.  (775) 783-9999. And on Facebook Minden Meat and Deli.
