The meal was great at Armando's. Classic fajita's, not alot of sauce, great flavor in an authentic Mexican restaurant. The chips and salsa were excellent and the mojito's were on point. In the summer the atmosphere was great and all Detroit. Would highly recommend.

I visit and eat in Mexicantown as often as I can when I travel through. Hidden treasures like Lupita's for authentic Mexican fare are a wonderful oasis.

I'm not sure what there is about this area of town that reminded me of Mexico because the businesses having signs in Spanish were interspersed with many other rather run down and boring Detroit buildings. It seems to be an area encompassing several blocks. Nothing...More
