Great Mexican food. Margaritas are good! Monday dollar taco night is a GREAT value. It's fun to watch the train come in right next to the window! Guacamole and cheese sauce should not be missed!

A little out of the way; however, coming back in this area from another location. Best Mexican Food and there was also some specials-interesting pictures of trains,etc. on the walls. Definitely would return.

A Railroad Station and eclectic place to eat. Food was very good, but a little pricey for a small town. Would go back again.

What a surprise this place was! The best guacamole EVER - fresh and fluffy - they didn't try to sneak in any old or brown avocados like some places do. I also had the Chilli Relleno special and it was a hit!

I don't know about you, but I can base how good my meal will be upon their guacamole. When they bring your beverages and chips and salsa and guacamole, if you don't want to order from the menu and have them instead bring you a vat of the awesome green stuff, you know you are in for a great meal!...

The food is always fresh and delicious. The service is quick and attentive. We usually eat there twice a month. Everything we try is always good. The guacamole is the best I've ever had.

If you like Tex Mex, you'll love this place. Great menu (including food for the non Tex Mex appetite, and kids also) featuring the standards choices, but also some very delicious House recipes. Great staff and service. The fee house salsa and chips are quite nice and guac is outstanding. I visit at least 2-4 times a month. Try it,... More

Main Street Station provides excellent Mexican food and drinks. The staff is friendly and everything is very affordable so a family can enjoy a great evening out without breaking the bank.
