Acushnet ave is very good for Portuguese food and pastry. Also for the boutiques that they have . The bakery's have that good Portuguese bread that you can buy it as it is coming out of the oven.

There is a very large selection of different small shops, restaurants and bar rooms along Acushnet Avenue. Some places are clean, some are fithy. A large diversity of nationalities are along this strip, weather it be the owners, employees or shoppers. The bus route does run along the avenue. It isn't the cleanest or best area and can be a...

It's a run-down old avenue with old businesses and old signs, but the food is great and you get a real sense of being somewhere else.

Are you kidding me? Acushnet avenue is about two miles of "we ain't got nuthin' to offer'. It's usually referred to by locals as simply 'The Avenue' which I believe is Latin for "Dump".

My subject line says it all. The avenue is very busy and dirty. Let's see, there are bar's, pharmacy's Portuguese restaurants, antique store or two, bakeries, real estate offices, banks, church, gas stations, etc. You get the idea, nothing special about it.
