A decent Mexican restaurant with very good service. I probably would have given 3 stars, but the device and price was so good, it made up for the slightly above average Mexican fare. I will most likely stop in here again.

Hard to pronounce but even harder to pass up. Great Mexican food in a great, vibrant neighborhood of Detroit.

This may have been my last experience there. The chips are always served hot from the fryer. Mine were cold and tasteless. I asked for hotter chips. She brought a tepid basket. I was confused cause that's a big reason why I go there. The third basket had been dipped into hot oil and were super oily. Big disappointment. See... More

I have been dining here for 30+ years and my husband more like 40 years. The margaritas are excellent and so is the food. We always order the Flaming Cheese and often Fajitas and Cactus & Eggs. My family from Toronto always dines here with us when they visit.

We have been to Xochimilco's several times over the years and it is always very consistent. Food is plentiful, it arrives hot and quickly. The wait staff is always friendly. On a busy night you may have to wait but it is worth it. The place could really use an update as the atmosphere and decor has not changed in... More

Walked in and had to wait to about 10 minutes to be sat in a completely empty restaurant. The host was slightly rude. Finally got sat, it was dead silent in there very awkward I could here myself chewing. Restrooms where extremely dirty and the restaurant reeked like cat urine. But out of hunger I had stayed and it seemed... More

The atmosphere and service was good/nice. The food was average. I have been here literally a hundred plus times, and it is decent. I frequent here less now than I used to...before I discovered Lupita's (right next door), Los Altos, Taqueria Nuestra Familia(spelling?), Mi Pueblo and others. I think Xochimilco is better than Armando's, Los Galanes, el Zocalo, Mexican Village,... More

Very authentic and a classic mexican town restaurant. The place is old and dark but that's what makes it what it is. The food is ALWAYS good and served very quickly. The fresh nacho chips and salsa cannot be beat!
