“Excellent Mexican Food, Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Our son and his fiance found this place and recommended it. We ate dinner with them and our other son and all raved about their dinners. The portions were huge we were happy and stuffed and the service was excellent also. The location is in a poorer section of Detroit but there is safe parking and the place was clean and cozy. We will return soon!

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch and had a chicken burrito. Chips and salsa were ok. Burrito was ok too maybe a little drier than I like. This restaurant looks to be in a bad part of town. I will let you locals determine whether it is safe. My service was excellent. It is a small restaurant.

“Magnifico! Perfecto! Authentic Old School Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2009

I love this place and eat here as often as possible.

Sr. Lopez is small, clean and modest. Their prices are embarassingly low and sacrifice nothing in quality with decent portions. You will have a hard time spending more than $15 a person.

They have an old school menu including lengua, barbacoa, carnitas, chorrizo, chile rellenos and other authentic Mexican dishes served with fresh, hot corn tortillas, This is NOT Taco Bell. They even have my favorite, menudo- a beef tripe soup with hominy in a red chili broth- unique, delicious and a great hangover cure. The nachos that come with the meal come with great homemade mole, red and green chile salsas. If you don't think it is authentic enough, take it up with the Mexicans who fill up the restaurant,

Parking is free on the street in one of Detroit's few remaining commercially viable areas.

Service has always been excellent. Far better than El Zocalo or other Mexican Town alternatives.
