Description: Fantastic new venture run by J.D. Hairston, mad-scientist/cook and partner-in-crime Anika Balaconis. The menu offers Tex-Mex-like cookin' with a variety of tacos (including the delicate and hand-corned "lengua" tongue and beef tacos) with an incredible array of toppings from pickled onions and jalapenos to flavored sour creams, goat cheeses and more. From a saltcod po'boy to the best grits n' eggs this side of the Mississippi -- homemade nut brittles and "cherry pie cookies" -- this cafe is tailoring itself to the tastes of the community and creating a wonderfully welcoming place with an interesting and diverse menu for all to enjoy. The Vegie Melt is to die for!

You can't beat the Brass Buckle when visiting Greenfield, MA. The food is interesting and terrific! They always have some interesting daily specials and the coffee is great! The couple who own it are very nice and hardworking! Great service all well!

I always get at least one corn beef taco but they always have taco specials that I have to try and I am never let down. Oreo milkshake is worth doing some sit ups for, if not that I will grab a Vietnamese coffee. Salads are always good too.

I am continually amazed by this place. With a downright delicious, fun & eclectic menu and a super friendly staff, these guys are in my opinion by far the best breakfast and lunch option along the Connecticut River . My breakfast favorites are their huevos rancheros, the corn beef hash and the grits and greens. For lunch, they far and... More

A little hole in the wall on Main Street in Greenfield serves up a wild variety of drinks (Chocolate Grits Shake), sandwiches and dishes that are both comfort food and wild explorations in taste at the same time. My son's biscuit with egg and cheese was warm, gooey, crusty, flaky and totally delicious. My Cowboy sammich had a spicy kick... More

Most food was tasty here. BBQ brisket platter was delish, as was veggie melt with pesto. Chips with mango salsa was awful. We ordered on the advice of other reviewers and completely disagree with those glowing reviews. The chips tasted like cardboard, the salsa was nothing more than chopped mango and some indistinguishable vegetable. Yuck. Aside from that one misstep,... More

My husband and I stopped here after visiting my alma mater Stoneleigh Burnham. The sandwiches were lovely but the servings were HUGE. I recommend sharing. My husband smashed his thumb and nearly fainted when we got to lunch. The staff were amazing - genuinely concerned and offering cool cloths and fresh juices.
