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.

Atmosphere is more like a cafe than a restaurant. When I walked through the front door, I thought that I had walked into a back entrance. Ripped seats, cheap silverware and plastic glasses. Definitely not romantic. I ordered the chef's special which was stuffed poblano peppers. Not so special. The peppers were covered in boring tomatoe sauce. Rice and beans... More

My husband and I frequent this restaurant often. The best Mexican food in McHenry, hands down. Great food, great portions, great service, great value. Occasionally it can get busy and the service slows a little, but it is worth it because the food is always delicious and they have the best salsa! Love this place, can't go wrong. They even... More
