El Rancho Grande Mexican Restaurant


This commercial building was originally constructed as Hickman & Clark Drugs.  Throughout the years, a number of drug stores operated out of this location.  It was formerly home to El Rancho Grande Mexican Restaurant. The owners of The Original Mexican Eats Cafe purchased it in 2020 and renamed it "The Original del Norte".  The red brick building features a corbelled sill and cornice with a stepped parapet and cast stone trim.  The storefront along Main Street has been significantly altered.  The 1400 Block of Main Street is also known as "The Mercado".
