“Awesome!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This was our first visit to State and Main in Aurora.
Very nice menu, amazing lunch and wonderful service.
We couldn't have be more pleased. There is a really
nice patio under construction and we are looking
forward to spending time out there this summer.
This is a place you'll want to check out!

“New Restaurant”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This new restaurant is located in a former Blockbuster's location in a small strip mall.

The menu selection at first glance seemed overpriced; however, the majority of entrees includes two side orders and they were large portions.

My guest ordered the chicken tenders and I chose the Carolina pulled pork sandwich. They were very good. The service was fairly quick even though it was over lunch time and the majority of tables were filled. There are daily specials after 2 p.m.

In my opinion, I would have preferred that the owners used Canadian names (including the restaurant title) throughout the menu which would add to the unique Canadian flavour of what appears to be an Alberta company.

“Hit and miss”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

I have been waiting to a good place for lunch in Aurora than was reasonably priced and that was a little upscale. I have been there three times since it opened and at least one person at the table had an amazing lunch each time. The Rueben sandwich is the best in the area the, pulled port was passable but the main burger was just nasty. It was dried out and the amount of burger vs. the bun just did not make the grade (huge bun thin little burger). I understand from my companions that the Saigon wrap is wonderful.
They have a large selection of beer on tap and the wait staff is great. I will go back.

Just a side note they serve their take out in cardboard boxes by the time you get your hot sandwich anywhere it is a soggy mess... skip the takeout.

“A pleasant addition to Aurora's dining”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Impressive and friendly staff. From the welcome to the good night the staff was great. Food very tasty and portion sizes were definitely very good value for your money. Dim lighting but enough to be able to read the menu! The music was not to loud so it was easy to converse at our table. The lounge side has a great setup and can't wait till the outdoor patio opens :) Great new local spot. I will definitely recommend this place to others.

“nice place for a meal out”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Good central location in Aurora. Have been a few times now....getting better each time we go. I like the ambiance and size of the restaurant. Seating is comfortable. Food is reasonably priced for a meal out.
