It's kind of a hole in the wall but... Good, tasty food in generous portions. Friendly service. Very reasonable prices. Full bar with adequate parking. Somewhat small and always crowded. Nothing fancy so not much on atmosphere. Probably can't handle a large group (8+). Keep the kids at home. A place to sit back, relax, shoot the breeze and people... More

Started going to Old Mexico when it was on Grand River in Redford. I'm disappointed with my carryout today and as a patron before that because the ground beef isn't drained properly in the taco, the food was greasy. Was a friendlier place to visit "back in the day." The young carryout host did a good job I do have... More

Really great food at reasonable prices. No need to drive down to Detroit. It's Mexican Town in Livonia. While the inside and the outside of the building desperately need a makeover, you go there for the reasonable prices and good portion size. Wait staff is always very friendly. If you go at peak times, may have only a little wait.

This is a little hole in the wall restaurant with very reasonable prices. The service is excellent and the food is outstanding for its price point. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This is a small "hole in the wall" type place. The service was good and the portions were good, but the food taste was not to my liking. Others in my group really liked the food, but it didn't fit my taste buds - every thing (salsa, rice, chicken tacos) was made with a lot of black pepper. Sorry -... More

We called a few hours ahead for a large group and got to sit right away and had an excellent experience. Food and service were very good.

Years ago my husband and his family used to frequent Old Mexico and really liked it. I was there once a number of years ago and don't remember much about it. Tonight, my husband and I were in the area and decided to eat there. It is a small informal Mexican restaurant. Chips and salsa were brought out quickly. The... More

I've been there a few times for lunch and the food is always great. A local favorite for great Mexican food. My daughter liked their Mexican rice so much we ordered a tray of it for her high school graduation party. Their Tortilla Soup is wonderful. Nice prices and great food. What are you waiting for? Go there now! :)

Authentic Mexican food, cooked fresh. They are not stingy with portions, and the food is always fresh and hot. The lunch specials are very good.
