A bit of a "dive" in that it's not a flashy new place but a must visit. They always serve fresh / hot chips and salsa and they offer pitchers of margarita's. Sometimes I won't even order a meal.

The quality and portions are excellent. My mom and I try to go here as much as possible. Great atmosphere and a Metro-Detroit staple.

We have been coming here for 25 yrs. food has always been pretty good and their margaritas were hands down the best ANYWHERE and I try a margarita at every Mexican restaurant I frequent throughout the nation. The last 3 times in a row I have been here the margaritas seem to be watered down with NO flavor almost to... More

I've made it my personal mission to eat at as many Mexican restaurants as possible is Mexican Town. My next stop was Xochimilco Restaurant. Walking up, it looked run down and unappealing but I don't judge any books by their covers. The servers were lovely and greeted / sat us right away. Our food was delivered very quickly as well!...

Great margaritas, good food, and fast service all add up to a good night out. The restaurant is old, and could do with a little updating, but we come here anyway. The food is inexpensive, and you get a lot for your money. On Friday and Saturday nights there will be a line! They can accommodate large groups if you... More

Visited with family fast one of our friends recommended it. Place has a authentic Mexican touch with great food, Chips were fresh and hot with great salsa dip. Lunch was also great and on time. Staff is very quick and nice. Try local beverage they are worth.

OK the place is a dump but read on because when I walked into it 40 years ago it was a dump and I eat there all the time. I am sure you can find nicer decors in Mexican town. And if you like a nice new Chi Chi's than you came to the wrong place. I judge a Mexican... More

Food good, service par, cleanliness sub-par. Something about coming here though outranks all of the other items!

Never disappoints!!! Wonderful food and drinks! Authentic Mexican cuisine. The only negative is the decor. Very old and outdated. Desperately in need of remodeling or at the very least cleaner floor..Food definitely makes up where the atmosphere lacks.

Been there once before...was not impressed with the food, but today I was with business friends and they decided to go to Xochimilco for lunch. Arrived, the host was borderline curt. Waitress defiantly curt. Ordered off the lunch menu...tacos...simple enough, right? Charged extra for cheese, charged extra for lettuce and tomatoes, etc. It was a rip off!! The food was... More
