Best botanas in Mexican town

Great Mexican, fast and tasty. Order the botana for a meal, it is the ultimate comfort food. They're consistent in their food too.

If you like Mexican, you're going to like this place. In a bit of a seedy area of Detroit, but you'll appreciate the area once you're there. It's really not bad, and you'll get to see some of Detroit ' history while you're driving by the old train station on Michigan Avenue.

The dinner platters ordered were made fresh and delivered promptly. Our questions were answered clearly. The service was friendly and with just the right amount of attention. We very much recommend this restaurant.

I have been going to The mexican Village Restaurant for years. It is a friendly, frenetic place with very good Mexican fare in fair portions and prices. The menu offers a great variety of Mexican food and combination platters. If you can't find something to eat here, you either are not that hungry or just don't know what you are... More

I've dined here many times over the years and have always enjoyed the food and service. I especially like the combo plates and my parents love the skirt steak and fajitas. My favorite is the fried ice cream. This dessert is a delight with its corn flake crusted vanilla ice cream deep fried right before serving with a dollop of... More

food was decent, but not great. Wait staff was good. The place was very loud, and it was not near capacity at all. It is cut off from the rest of the restaurants by the freeway, making it a bit isolated and somewhat worrisome.

This is an old favorite of mine and when I visit Detroit, I try to visit here. It's no-frills authentic Mexican food that's actually pretty cheap. The area around it is quite run down, but inside you won't notice. The food isn't the caliber of what you'll get in Olde Town Mexico in San Diego, but at that next level.... More

Excellent eats, excellent price, excellent service. The Shrimp Fajitas was superb and bursting with freshness and flavor. The Margarita was perfect, not too tart or too sweet. And our waiter Omar was the best. He polite demeanor was so pleasant and he apologized profusely for the time we had to wait for our food which was not a problem for... More

You don't have to go anywhere else for Mexican food; and it is good. They can accommodate huge crowds as they often do. My favorite is the Arizonian combo, a beef lovers platter with a side of rice and beans.

Came here with an extremely large group. They did well to accommodate. The food was good. The wait was not long and the waitstaff did well.
