I used to love this place. I no longer do. Server acts like he’s on drugs, food isn’t good anymore, and the cleanliness suffers greatly.

Right around the corner from a Mexican grocery store, their ingredients are always fresh. The service is always fast and polite. Main Street is lucky to have this establishment.
