Awesome food

There are many restaurants in Mexican town that are phenomenal, and many of which are open very late. Mexican town is a great location to sit back and have a margarita.

We love to eat dinner at a different restaurant every time we go. However, we always skip dessert & head to the bakery on the corner instead! After we get our box (yes box!) of goodies from the bakery, we like to explore the craft stores. We also stop into the convenient stores which offer a large assortment of Mexican... More

My wife heard about Mexicantown so we thought that we'd check it out. Security is a concern in Detroit, obviously, but was relieved to see that the parking lots were filled with upscale autos and patrolled by private security guards. We didn't have a reservation on a Saturday night but they took us in. The service was fast and kind.... More

Don't miss spending a day strolling the streets of Mexicantown. Excellent bakeries, tortilla shops and wonderful restaurants. Great atmosphere and great fun. The gift shops have beautiful wares imported from Mexico. I love my huge Mexican sombrero. Enjoy!

The rehearsal dinner was held here. I don't understand why with a reservation booked with the amount of people that we had 3 tables, three servers, and 3 bills?

Mexican town is a region on the Detroit side of the Ambassador Bridge where you can get some great food and snacks before heading back over to the Windsor side if you're from this region. I stumbled upon it the first time I went over and now this is where I try to eat every chance I get when I'm... More

Traveling in and out of Mexicantown in Detroit was a pleasant surprise. I had the opportunity to eat at three restaurants and was impressed with each one. The streets are tight and parking is not great but it's worth it. I went there for lunch...doesn't look like a spot I'd want to walk the streets of at night.
