“good eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011 via mobile

nice little place, good service, good food. I make it by once every few weeks for lunch and have never had a bad meal. Food is out quick and service is always filling your glass back up.

“Best kept secret in Allen Park! I'm addicted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

I've been to Angelina's a couple dozen times and I've loved it each and every visit! Their salsa is the BEST around. It's so fresh you would think they just chopped it five minutes prior to being set on your table. The enchiladas, tacos, burritos, tostadas, guacamole, botanas, chimichangas, etc. are all exceptional. Every person I've sent there has become hooked.

It's a very, very casual place. Don't come here with a group, and don't expect an intimate meal. When you eat here, it's strictly about the food. There's only a few tables inside as it's set in a tiny strip mall. The Wyandotte location is just as good, but a tad bigger.

Your order arrives within five minutes and it's always hot and fresh. Their carry-out and delivery service is always booming. We've ordered party trays, too, and they've been outstanding. Everything is affordable and delicious. They seem to have new specials every day. I promise if you try it, you'll be hooked too!

“A Great Secret of Locals. Fresh! The best of SW Detroit Mexican Village in AP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

Angelina's Mexican Restaurant, 8425 Allen Road, Allen Park, MI 48101-1429 On the SE corner of Allen Road and Englewood.

If you're looking for a nice quaint place for a romantic Mexican dinner with a Mariachi band and atmosphere, Angelina's is not it! However, if you want to know the secret of Allen Park , where the freshest Mexican food is prepared daily, check out Angelina's.

There's probably 12 or less tables in the whole restaurant. I've been told they also opened a place in Wyandotte with more spaces, but I haven't been there yet. This place in Allen Park rocks of great food and great prices. Almost everything on the menu is under $10. They have authentic tacos, burritos, and other things I can't spell -- you name it. They're good for pork, beef, chicken, fish. They make their own everything!

They probably do as much or more carryout than sit down. That makes sense when you consider the tables and decor. However, you could spend a month going down everything on the menu and not find a bad thing there. In fact, I've tried (and not been disappointed).

Their steak dishes are great, taco carbon & Pastor, and their tilapia milletta are worth trying. If you're looking for atmosphere, expect no more than a kitchen in a small strip mall with tables. If you're looking for great fresh food at affordable prices, check this place out.

I expect they do a good business in catering. This food would be great for a party. They always seem busy, yet I've never waited more than 10 minutes. I don't think they take reservations. I've ordered off the lunch menu and been amazed at how much food they give you for lunch. This restaurant for the quality is the best kept secret in Allen Park. I honestly believe that they could move anywhere and the locals would find out and follow them. Best carry-out in town!
