“A Fantastic Find!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Our family of five happened upon the Main Street Restaurant in Saugerties strictly be accident. What a marvelous place to find! We looked at a few other restaurants along the main drag but settled on Main Street because of the heavily influenced Mexican menu. Between our party of five, we had the chicken enchiladas, a chicken taco salad, a chicken avocado club, quesadillas, French onion soup, and the American burger. Everything we ordered was wonderful.

The restaurant itself has a bit of a "broken-in" feel about - like a comfortable leather chair, a warm blanket, or your favorite jeans. The friendly staff and efficient service also helped make for a very nice late lunch. The restaurant and restrooms were clean and well-stocked. Most importantly, the kitchen staff obviously take great pride in their creations.

Our family has been traveling for about two weeks now and this serendipitous find might be the highlight of meals eaten out! Highly recommended for a quick, casual, delightful lunch or dinner.

“Good comfortable place to eat”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We enjoyed eating here. The food was excellent. The staff didn't their job. They weren't overly friendly, but they weren't rude. My only complaint would be that the lighting kept changing during our meal. When we came in it was pretty dark and someone increased it, but then it was reduced again. That wasn't a big deal, but just something we observed.

“Delicious, Fresh, Comfy.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We eat here several times per month. It is in a very old building on the main drag in the Village of Saugerties and it has that comfortable, broken in feel about it. The atmosphere is very casual and friendly. The locals know it well and visit often.
The food is always very fresh and very delicious. We've never had a bad meal. The salsa and fresh, hot chips are delicious. My husband said that the mussel appetizer is out of this world. He always asks for bread to sop up the broth. I highly recommend one of their specials, if you're lucky enough to be there when it's on the menu. It is a pork tenderloin with a Brazilian "barbecue" sauce. The sauce is actually creamy and spicy and out of this world. The authentic Mexican dishes are served with black beans, rice and guac. The hamburgers are wonderful and are mostly Mexican themed (with guac, etc.), but you can order them any way you like. They're always juicy and excellent.
There's usually a solo musician or duet on Friday nights. I find the choices of music to be edgy, or outright odd but I always enjoy it. Based on the crowd that always shows up, so does everyone else. Highly, highly recommended.

“Delicious”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Return every Wednesday for burger night. Best burgers in town. Even more they are renowned for the best Mexican. Soups are homemade as is everything. Not much to look at from outside but what a comfortable atmosphere inside. Family owners are wonderful and take great pride and attention in their service.

“Best mexican food in Saugerties”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

The burritos are a must try. Nice bar, owner is very nice and a comfortable place for lunch or dinner. Occasional live music is nice as well.
