Mexican - Detroit style

Love the Detroit Mexican style of food - great service and the food is wonderful. Love it more than food actually prepared in Mexico, California and Texas

Visited this restuarant last night, Canadian at Par on Monday nights, so quite busy. Arrived at 7:35pm, was told a 20 min wait, ended up waiting till 8:20pm to be seated. Ordered a litre of Margarita, there were 5 of us, flaming cheese, beef fajitas, and another soft taco entrée... server was excellent, fast, efficient and friendly. Would highly recommend... More

I kept reading about how bombed out Mexicantown and on a tight schedule it made me not want to go. We visited during the day time but Bagley and 24th seemed completely fine for a night out. We walked down Vernor Highway past clark park where it gets a bit rougher. I wouldnt recommend that area after dark. We got... More

You must eat at Mexican town. Best authentic Mexican Food in town. If you do not eat at Mexican Town you will miss out on some great Mexican food and great margaritas.

One of my friends from college lives over on the east side of the state, and works in downtown Detroit. He wanted to show us some of the little non-chain nichey places where he likes to eat while we were in town. This was the end result of that dinner drive. The area was a bit dicey, but we had...

This is our "go-to" restaurant. Delicious, authentic recipes, reasonably priced, quickly served, and always with a smile.

Love Mexican Town! If you have an urge for some real Mexican food then head to Mexican Town for the most authentic you will find north of the Mexican boarder. So many places to choose from but my personal favorite would be Los Galenas and if you love tamales then you must hit up Evie's Tamales for a dozen or... More

Canadian money is at par on Mondays on everything, but we were over on Thursday and decided to go anyway. As always the food was excellent, and the service friendly and prompt. We had a large flaming cheese, and a large chicken and beef fajita with cheese on top. We were all stuffed. There are endless baskets of warm nacho... More
