Bigger & better menu in recent years!

We live here and enjoy the food and the menu more in the last few years. They have good salads and a wider range of "fast" type foods for a quick bite or for families with children. The atmosphere offers indoor or outdoor seating, although we have only eaten outside as weather permits often.

Good all-around American food. BBQ is excellent, Hamburgers are huge, Tritip sandwiches are huge and delicious. Also, onion rings are fat and tasty. Haven't tried the other sandwiches but they also look good. You serve yourself,

Tri tip sandwich, french fries, and clam chowder this time. They didn't disappoint! And now I have to add more characters, because this form won't accept a short review. What else is there to say. Good food that is always reliable. The only take cash!

The food was very good here and portions more than adequate. Nothing special about the food but filling and well seasoned. Service was great and staff extremely friendly. A nice selection to choose from and a place where you can take the entire family

We stop to eat here every time we are in the area. The tri tip sandwich is fantastic, a very generous portion of meat on a very good roll. If you order French fries, there are enough to feed 2-3 people. The drinks are free refills. If you are a sports fan there are several large screen tvs..CASH ONLY.

We have been going to Cambria for many years and always looked forward to having lunch at the Main Street Grill. They always have great Barbecue wit our favorite being the Pig Sandwich (Pulled Pork). Something has changed and not for the better. Food is still good, but not quite as good in the past. Of greater concern is the... More

My wife and I ate at the Main Street Grill and we were very content. She had the side salad and an order of Chicken Strips. The Chicken Strips were better suited for a kids meal, just typical, but good. The Side Salad was huge! It was enough salad for two! It was awesome. I had the Half Chicken. It... More
