I just refinanced with MNB and it has been the easiest experience. The mortgage officer was pleasant and made the whole process easy. If you've ever refinanced before it can be a nightmare of paperwork and more paperwork and that's before they even let you know your in!! MNB basically took all the paperwork out of it. We sat with a mort. officer for about 20 minutes - he basically interviewed us getting all of our financial info. Then he counseled us on the best loan for our needs. He pointed us in a totally different direction than we were thinking and has actually saved us money. Imagine that!! They are again a home town bank and you really get that feeling that you are special - not just a bank account number.
Finally tried out Acapulcos in Milford about 1 week ago. Fantastic mexican food at reasonable prices. I could have made a meal out of the chips and salsa that they bring to the table. My husband, who isn't a huge mexican food fan, ordered the Fajitas and was in heaven! My daughter and I got the taco salads. The salads were great but could have been a little larger. The prices were reasonable - I'll definately be making more trips to Acapulcos - next time to try the margaritas which I have heard are Fantastic!!
Went to Carbones with the my husband and 2 kids about a month ago. I hadn't been in years and was pleasantly surprised that the food was still good. The portions are generous, prices are decent. The flies, however, were also numerous and very annoying. I'm not sure why there were so many but the one thing that'll turn me off to a restaurant, unless of course I'm dining alfresco, is flies! All in all the food wasn't worth having to continually swat flies out of it!
PROS: good food, prices
Looking for something different in flower arranging? Go to Francis Flowers in Milford. The staff is very creative and the prices are great. I went in one day to get some single carnations for the cemetary and each one was wrapped with fern and ribbon - they looked beautiful. Tell them what you'd like and let them go to town. The flowers are fresh and the choices are many.
My last 4 appliance purchases have been at Frank's. The customer service is great, turnaround time excellent and what other company takes your old appliance away for FREE!!! They are very competitive with the "big" appliance stores and will do what they can to meet prices when at all possible. If you want to keep your business in town, go to Frank's.
Frank Olivera Painting is FANTASTIC!! I recently had them paint my aluminum siding and the result is unbelievable. It went from an ugly barn red to a beautiful sage green. The workers were courteous, neat and very friendly. I would definately recommend Frank's company to anyone looking to have any painting done.
Oliva's gift shop is one of the worst kept secrets in Milford!! For the longest time only a few insiders knew about it - well the secret is out!! If you are into Zoppini bracelets and charms - Oliva's gift shop is the place for you. They also carry Willow Tree Angels, Patriots/Red Sox gifts, and a multitude of gourmet gift items. Need a gift basket for a special occasion? Tell them what you want to spend, what the recipient likes and they'll make you a basket to die for!!! ANd on your way out grab something from the deli for supper!! Parking is usually at a premium since it is street only.
PROS: merchandise choice
If you are looking for a package store that offers a personal touch - Macs is the one for you! I've frequented this store many times since moving to Milford 13 years ago. The employees are the same and make it a point to remember you. They are all very eager to help you find what you need and to bring it to your car if needed. They give the personal touch that seems to be missing from so many of the "big" liquor stores.
Royal Thermal View is a top notch company. Owned and operated by John Gonsalves, I had the absolute best experience with them. Their customer service is fantastic. Their prices are competitive and their product is outstanding. If you're looking for windows call Royal Thermal. They also do vinyl siding.
