We frequent The Grasshopper several times a month. They have the best tacos and Mexican food in town. Their chips and cheese are AWESOME! The service is always quick and friendly and the value is great!

Have never been to Adrian before and this place was recommended. Very friendly and helpful service. Complimentary chips and salsa to start. Meals are big, so don't order too much.
