Good Mexican Food

I'm not a big fan of Mexican food so can't review much on food. Went with friends and family was good and tasty. Ambiance is a bit low light but food quality and quantity and also service are to excellent level.

We went here on a Friday evening - like all nights - there is always a waiting list. However there's some seating and benches outdoors to wait - of course the ambiance of Van Dyke Avenue leaves a bit to be desired. We ordered the boomba sized margaritas - and they are tasty. For dinner, I had the chimichanga -... More

They have a great lunch menu, with reasonable prices. They give you tortilla chips with hot and mild salsa, while you wait for your meal. GREAT!!

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant. The food is great and the margaritas are to die for. I have a hard time passing by the Mexican Sandwich - if you get it, make sure you get pork and get the cheese on top. It is good for two meals for me. My wife likes the tostadas which look like mini... More

This review hurts me to write because this place was one of my favorite restaurants of all time. My review is dedicated to the night manager. I do not know her name ,but we went to Mexican village 20 minutes before closing time which I know is frowned upon ,but if you say you are open until 10 you best... 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.

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 occupied! I always get the main... More

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
