This place is a cash only destination. That being said...the food is awesome! One of our favorite places in Cambria. We come here often and enjoy the tri tip and onion rings. I'm not a fan of fries but the fries here are well seasoned and well cooked and comes in large portions well worth the money. The tri tip... More

Friendly staff great food. Only drawback is they are a cash only restaurant. Specialty tri tip sandwiches or their Cobb salad is great

The food was good, we were able to walk there from the Fogcatcher Inn. What I didn't know at the time was that it is cash only. They do have an ATM on site though, if needed.

I had one of the best burgers I ever ate . I ordered the ABC burger... with bacon, avocado, tomato, onion and lettuce. It was huge and messy but so yummy. Eating here again tomorrow so hubby can have one. The place was clean. Service quick.

The best hamburgers in town. The Main Street salad has delicious tri-tip, cooked on site, as well as a delicious tri-tip sandwich. Can be a bit noisy inside when full. Outside on the patio is nice - dog and squirmy kid friendly. This is a must visit for our out of town family.

Love this place! It's a must stop every time I'm in town. The burgers are fabulous! The ribs are divine. And don't get me started on the onion rings. Yum factor all the way around!!!

On Main street, great food, ribs, burgers, steak, bbq, and good price. Had the most popular on menu, the tri tip bbq sandwich, really great. I would go there again!

Average bar food restaurant right on Cambria's Main Street. Had their pulled pork sandwich and fries. Nothing to it. Cash only restaurant and no wifi provided to customers.

Have been here once before but forgot menu. Pricing is approx. 20-40% more than menu link on this page. Ordered Cobb salad but advised no bell peppers. We asked if can add something else, clerk seemed indifferent. Asked if we could have some avocado in place of missing ingredient, she said register will still add $... Really? Sales was ok.... More

We had seen other good TripAdvisor reviews for Main Street Grill, so we were looking forward to trying it. We were not disappointed with the burgers and fries at all!! In fact we considered them to be much better than some more high-end burgers we had in other places along our trip and for half the cost. The double cheeseburger... More
