“nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Acushnet ave is very good for Portuguese food and pastry. Also for the boutiques that they have . The bakery's have that good Portuguese bread that you can buy it as it is coming out of the oven.

“Many Small Mom and Pop Shops”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

There is a very large selection of different small shops, restaurants and bar rooms along Acushnet Avenue. Some places are clean, some are fithy. A large diversity of nationalities are along this strip, weather it be the owners, employees or shoppers. The bus route does run along the avenue. It isn't the cleanest or best area and can be a little dangerous, especially at night.

“A fun place to walk, watch people, and explore Portuguese markets and bakeries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

It's a run-down old avenue with old businesses and old signs, but the food is great and you get a real sense of being somewhere else.
