“Truly Buenisimo Mexican Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We were on our way to a Tigers’ game at Comerica Park and decided to try yet another Mexicantown restaurant. What a nice surprise after having a bit of a displeasure from a previous restaurant in Detroit Mexicantown. This restaurant has décor that is pretty Mexican style. The music was not too overpowering Mexican. We arrived during ‘happy hour’ and were seated quickly. Their Margaritas are fabulous! The meal came quickly, spiced ‘just right’. We did ask our Mexican waitress what she would prefer between the beef/chicken in our burritos and botanas. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable. They have ‘security’ driving around the parking lot. We went during the early evening-daylight hours, so I’m not sure what happens when it gets dark, but we felt quite safe. The restrooms were clean. There is plenty of space for diners. With drinks and dinner, our total was under 23.00. The previous place we visited “during lunch” cost us over $30.00 (see our other reviews). You’ve got to try Mi Pueblo. Fantastic food!

“Great food/excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Can't say enough, nor can I get enough of this place.
We had stellar service Tuesday night. There was a dish on special (Nopalitos). Never had it before. Our waitress (I wish I remembered her name) actually brought out a sample for us to try. We ended up ordering it for one of our meals. Great food plus fast and excellent service. What more can you ask for?

“Consistently fresh, authentic Mexican food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Mi pueblo is the best taco joint in town. I satisfy my corn cravings with a taco dinner, which is 3 tacos rice and beans. Always great! Great friendly staff, inviting environment. Great guacamole and chips to start. Many afforable options on menu, kid friendly.

“A beautiful restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

There are so many great restaurants in South West Detroit that I only get to eat here a few times a year. Seldom do I care about the decor as long as the food is good, but this place is a feast for the eyes. Most of the food is true Mexican with a few Tex Mex dishes. Food , service and prices are all good. Parking is great with lots running all around the restaurant. Don't miss it.
