Restaurant Review: MJ's on Main - Milford

Larry wanted to try someplace new after work so we decided to head to downtown Old Milford. 

 I love Old Milford - it's so quaint - with all their antique stores and local shops and lights on trees!

We decided on MJ's on Main - it's on the opposite end of old Milford as his job and he's been wanting to try it. It's a jazz bar that frequently has live music - but they also have a full menu.

I tried the Drunken Pig Carnita Tacos - Savory pork braised in craft beer until fork-tender, then pulled and stuffed in a warm flour tortilla with crisp lettuce, black bean & pineapple slaw, cilantro, and chipotle crème. ($12.99).

The portion size was big and there was plenty of meat in the tacos. The pork was a little dry but the black bean and pineapple slaw did help - and that was tasty. I liked the tacos but can't say that I loved them - they were fine.

I got a side of chips & salsa with them - the chips were in need of salt and the salsa was in need of flavor - acidity, salt, etc.

Larry got the Herbed Salmon BLT: Tender flaky salmon grilled with our herb butter and topped with romaine lettuce, sliced tomatoes and crisp bacon. Finished with chipotle crème and served on a baguette. ($12.50) He really liked his sandwich and the salmon was tasty - I guess I'm a fan of their herbed butter!

Why Should You Go? It's a nice little place and the server was super friendly. He actually messed up my order slightly (I asked for soup - got the chips & salsa) but he was apologetic and offered to bring it out anyway. I would definitely go back - probably try something else - but I would go back for sure!
