Back in the day I'm sure It was something incredible.. All the shops, main stretch of road with your typical all American mom and pop stores.. It's a street everyone should avoid.

The "AVE" is pretty much a blighted area. Not the crusing spot it used to be 15 years ago...Some mom and pop bakeries, other than that, I don't bother

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.

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.
