I came here for lunch. I was planning on spending an afternoon here to walk around and such, but there is nothing to see except restaurants and bakeries. I ate some decent tacos at Taqueria Mi Pueblo, a decent fruit cup at Michoacana & a decent churro at Mexicantown Bakery. The only highlight is the HoneyBee supermarket whose tamales, al... More

Every place is different. Lupita's has excellent food at a very reasonable price. No alcohol and does not accept credit cards. Very friendly wait staff.

Mexican town is a quirky neighbourhood to the west of downtown. It is very colourful and has a number of (mexican) places to eat.

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

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
