Then in the last quarter of 2015 a Moe's Southwest Grill opened in Hernando County. Since then a Chipotle Mexican Grill and a Tijuana Flats have opened up as well as Wraps Mexican Grill. All of these provide burritos, tacos, and bowls of Tex Mex creations.

Main Street Eatery

In the heart of downtown Brooksville, sits the quaint but bustling Main Street Eatery.

When you first walk in, you are greeted by friendly faces while you choose where you would like to be seated. There are cozy tables for two or larger tables, perfect for getting together with family or coworkers for a tasty lunch.

The owners, Peggy and Bill Bell, were just newlyweds when they opened the eatery in 1989 and have been serving up delicious sandwiches, homemade salads, soups and, of course, desserts ever since.
