Do not miss the culture within in a culture that is Detroit's Mexicantown. The restaurants are the best. Make sure you visit Nuestra Familia at Vernor and Central....the real thing! Also, do some shopping at the Honey Bee Market. Great food at great prices. Don't miss this gem of Detroit!

As Canadians we cross over about 2 times a month to eat here. Sometimes with our kids and other with couples. Chips and salsa is one of the many favourites as well as fajitas. Large fajitas feed a family of 4 with left overs. I think it's canadian money at par on Mondays. Always get more chips and salsa for... More

So much to see as you wander around ... the groceries have ingredients that you will want to take home to cook with and there are restaurants and bakeries that will fill your tummies to the max. Great culture, safe to walk around (even with kids) ... so much fun!

We love E & L Supermercado for buying ingredients for Puerto Rican food. Since there are no sit-down puerto rican restaurants in Michigan, we settle for making our own (on occasion). While we travel almost an hour to get down to Mexicantown, it is worth it for us.

One of my favorite places in Detroit is Mexicantown Xochimilcos The portions are huge, the Margaritas are so smooth, the Flaming Cheese is to die for, and did I mention the Enchiladas Flautas Nachos Botanas, haven't had a bad meal at Xochimilcos. Even the chips and salsa and the best. Don't let the rough interior scare you, the food is... More

This is another ethnic area in Detroit that all should visit. The food is good and you have several restaurants to try.

Excellent restaurants, cool shops and overall a great part of the city to walk around PLUS, one of the few places in the Detroit area to practice your Spanish! Love it!

Stopped in for dinner before a Tigers game and was really impressed with the whole area. Just like other parts of Detroit you can see the spirit of the area coming through. The streets were busy and clean and the area just had a nice feel
