This is the sister of the famous downtown Detroit restaurant by the same name in Mexican Town. I don't know whether it's a hangover from the bad economy or not but this place no longer packs them in like it used to. During our recent weekday lunch at 12:30, only three other tables were... read more

I had not been to Mexican Village in years. My friend suggested it for lunch & I knew she liked it so I agreed...even though I'm not crazy about mexican food. I was very pleasantly surprised. The burritos were very good, seasoned just right. Served with tasty rice and refried beans. The price was right too. Lunch was under $8.... More

This is the same restaurant (owner's wise) as the one on Vernor Hwy in the actual Mexican Village area of Detroit. The food is excellent. The atmosphere is excellent. The wait is always long... and well worth it. You simply cannot lose here. The best way to get great Mexican without driving down to Detroit.

We picked this place because the reviews said it was a good authentic Mexican Restaurant. And that it was. Great margaritas and the food was delicious. Would definitely go back again

Best mexican food in area. Be prepared to wait an hour for a seat on the weekend. Well worth the wait.

After eating family Mexican food for 50 years, this is the most authentic. Frijoles are great. The place is always busy- very popular!

Being from the southwest I was excited to visit this place. I was told this is the best Mexican food around. Upon my visit I can say, this place is not good at all. It is probably good to those that have not had real Mexican food but to those that know real Mexican food this place will disappoint you.... More

We've been going to Mexican Village for years, and we've always loved it. They have delicious food that's always fresh. They food is the closest to authentic Mexican food I've had at a restaurant around here, and the service is always good. It's a quaint little place and if you're looking for good Mexican food, I highly recommend it.

I've been going here for 30 + years. If you can't make it down to Mexican Town, this is your spot. The food is always piping hot, and the salsa is made in store. Always a favorite.
