Ranked #2 of 57 Restaurants in Greenfield
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Southwestern, Mexican, Eclectic

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!

So, my first comment would be that you need to attack the Brass & Buckle with an open mind. Having lived in the area for 6 years previously my initial initial reaction was "hey this is pretty cool". My wife on the other hand, without the valley history, took a bit longer to warm up. The service, the food, the... More

The staff here are exceptional. The food is very very good and the prices quite reasonable for the quality. A real gem for this town. Most everything they make is great food. Cafe mocha iced or hot is really really good.

Always love their tacos, they are so good. Today I grabbed a Vietnamese iced coffee and two tacos and my wife grabbed a taco along with a salad and her watermelon iced tea. Never fails to satisfy.

As a fan of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, I think this restaurant should definitely be featured! My husband and I stopped by and tried their sandwiches. My husband said the roast turkey and avocado was the best he'd ever had. Nice chunks of roasted turkey! I had the pulled pork & kimchi which was delicious. We recently returned from Germany... More

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
