“Fun in Mexicantown”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Everyone has to go to Xochimilco's - its a Mexicantown tradition. It's not gourmet but the food is good and you get a healthy serving. Margarita's are awesome.

“Dirty and Bland”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

There food is boring and stale, and tastes overly processed. The staff is nice enough, but this is easily the worst food in Mexicantown.

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

1st time, last time...disrespectful female staff sat laughing as a group, quite annoying while trying to enjoy dinner, instead of working, playing with themselves publicly and more. If you like this kind of thing this is your place. I wouldn't take my family here if someone pd me. The food was pricy for mexican food. There was enough to feed 2 easily for the fajitas my husband ordered and the beans and rice were good but it was truly just average mexican food for the money. 14.95 for fajitas. The young male waiter was EXCELLENT. Personally will never go back. Other restaurants that serve mexican that are much more professional and respectful of all patrons and more reasonable. Good margaritas, charge extra for flavored ones..20.00 a liter.

“A favourite”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I have taken various family members here while on trips to Detroit and it has never let me down. The staff are friendly, the service is fast and the food just great. This time is was for a quick lunch before a Sunday afternoon Tigers game. My son, the bottomless pit, took on the 3 enchiladas, rice and beans and almost finished it LOL. Come hungry.
