I have remembered Minnie's restaurant all of my life. I hadn't been there in decades and returned with a Groupon coupon. When I asked the waitress to how long they have been there, she said "62 years." I am 62 years old so no wonder I remember it all my life! My friend and I enjoyed our lunch very much.... More

The family style meals come with too much food. However, that isn't my complaint. Everything tasted the same. Sort of a smoky sesame oil flavor. It was if their oil was starting to go bad or something. Also, nothing to wipe your fingers on after eating ribs or other finger foods. Bathroom was out of soap and paper towels. Still... More

Minnie's has been refreshed and has a very nice outdoor patio to meet with friends and share a meal. I think their Egg Foo Young is the best in town. And introduce yourself to the bartenders who are always friendly.

Chinese food and a bar, 1970's style. Food is still OK but not great. Good "per person" menus with good variety. Bar scene right out of 1975. Surprised that they don't smoke in the bar it is that old. Brings back memories of my times in Modesto which is why we go back.

Went to Minnies this weekend to enjoy a nice dinner with friends . There were only two other people eating in the dining room and the service was poor. The overall impression from the server was she didn't care, this was further demonstrated when asked about our time lapse from the time of our order to getting our food .... More

The night bartender runs the show and she is a storm to be reckon with. My story about the service on September 27, 2014 @9:30pm is long and arduous so I will simply say...don't waist your time if you are not a regular. If you simply and innocently ask about why your drinks or order are taking so long, she... More

Minnie´s is a landmark in Modesto. People enjoy the good food and the wonderful service and atmosphere. It is great for class reunions on the back patio. It is the Tiki Lounge of the town!!! If you have never been, you gotta see the LANDMARK IN MODESTO!

I've literally been coming to Minnie's since I was a baby! As a little girl my Grandpa Vito & Grandma Nina would park in the back & shuffle me through the bar as quickly as possible. I remember Grandpa trying to cover my eyes so that I couldn't see the beautiful velvet paintings of topless hula girls but I would... More

This is our favorite chinese restaurant in Modesto! We have been coming here for years and enjoy the Gourmet Dinner for 2. There are several tasty courses and coconut ice cream for dessert, (which is hard to find!) The atmosphere is a unique, tropical theme. There is a nice, big outdoor patio and a private room upstairs that can be... More
