This place is probably the best at the quasi-American version of Mexican food that you get all over Detroit and elsewhere. Big portions, quick service, endless chops and salsa, and inexpensive. If you have to wait at all, it'll be only a couple of minutes. Good margaritas. Great place to take the family before or after a game or show... More

This is one of the few thriving commercial districts in the city with many locally owned restaurants and other stores. Worth a look-see and a chance to have some authentic non-Taco Bell Mexican food.

There are alot of good restaurants. Armandos is my favorite. Go there for lunch or dinner then leave. Nothing to see, can be very dangerous at night.

Oddly enough, so few residents in Mexicantown are actually Mexican. However, the local fare and businesses are 100% committed to retaining this local ethnic flare. If you love Mexican food (and who doesn't), you should check it out!

If visiting this area make sure you stop in at Los Galanes Restaurant. Excellent Fast food, great, friendly service and right around the corner is the bakery and bridge to Canada.

It's a nice place full of Mexican restaurants and stores of all kind of Mexican products. It's a pitty they don't offer Yucatecan food, they are mostly oriented to Mexican food from Central, North and Western Mexico.

Love going to Mexicantown for great food, fun and laughter. What it lacks in atmosphere s more than made up in their food. Mmmmm

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

I used to love this place until today. They proved to be a FRAUDULENT BUSINESS. Yesterday I went in to buy my groceries and they said that their internet severs were down so they had to take my card and call it in to charge it.
