Friendly server. Excellent Portuguese rolls - very fresh and tasty. Terrific Portuguese sandwich - generous portion - nicely grilled. Reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. Parking is a tremendous challenge.

M&C is a cross between a neighborhood restaurant and dine in restaurant. The food is always good and the servings plentiful. The only problem that I have is with the parking. It may take a while to find a space.
