Taqueria Lupita has, hands down, the best tacos in Detroit. I never miss going there when I'M in range.3 tacos for $3.75...Fugetaboutit. It should be mentioned though that they are cash only but it never slowed me down. They also have a full menu of Mexican favorites but never "dumb down" the food for Anglo tastes!

This is my go to taco place on Detroit and is probably the most authentic experience based on a prior trip to Mexico City. They serve tacos with all of the beautiful braised meat known in Mexico but not typically preferred here in the states. If you haven't tried lengua or cabeza tacos you are certainly in for a treat at Lupita. Do not be put off by the dining room environment or the exterior of the restaurant. This place is great! Also, it is cash only so make sure to bring enough to cover your bill. Tacos are under $2 a piece so you can easily fill up for under $30 for 2 people. They do not serve alcohol but supposedly he proprietors have a location down the street that serves booze. Again, this is my go-to Mexican spot. Avoid the more popolar places and eat here - the real deal.

We eat Mexican food so often, we should be honorary Mexicans. Of the more than 1,000+ Mexican restaurants we've frequented, this one is THE BEST EVER!!!

Small restaurant in Mexico town. Very friendly staff. Take out seems popular as well. Nothing fancy, more of a local place with good food. Reasonable prices and go od size portions. 3 of us as chimi platter and enjoyed. 2 had different burritos and enjoyed as well. No liquor license if that matters to you and cash only (very clear signage). All fine with us.
