Prior to visiting Mi Pueblo, my previous benchmark for authenticity when scanning a Mexican restaurant menu was whether they offered fillings beyond the usual chicken/beef/pork and went beyond to include chorizo and lengua (beef tongue), so I was pleasantly surprised to discover cabeza (beef head) and chicharrones in salsa roja here, in addition to all of the above. Indeed I was not disappointed by the excellent flavours and the prices and portions represented excellent value. Live music from a mariachi band was energetic and fun.

The only things that keep my rating from being better than 4/5 were the spicy salsa, which was just middling and the monthly special, chicken mole enchiladas, which my companion ordered. The mole lacked any real heat and while I was expecting the chicken to have been stewed in the mole, the sauce was merely a garnish to otherwise ok, but unexceptional chicken enchiladas. Regardless, I'd certainly return with a larger group to explore more if the menu in the future!

Delicious authentic mexican. Had a bowl (huge) of chicken tortilla we split and a portabella tostada, which is my favorite. Would recommend this place to everyone

First time here but definitely not the last! Excellent margaritas, ceviche was out of this world, service was great even with a line out the door (literally). Two thumbs up (four if you count the husband!)

The food is good, typical Mexican. Lots of families, a popular place. Nothing special but recommend as a casual place to eat.

I highly recommend trying Mi Pueblo if you are thinking about adding it to one of your Detroit spots. Everyone raves about Mexican town restaurants, but Mi Pueblo is far more fresh and authentic in my opinion. The place is located in an odd area, slightly industrial, but don't let looks discourage you. There is security in the parking lot, and the place is frequented by Detroit cops and firefighters.

Some of my favorite things are the Chicken Torta Sandwich, and the enchiladas with green sauce. The salsa is very tasty and fresh with nice chunks of tomato and fresh cilantro.

The margaritas are great, and they have several beers to choose from as well If you want something without alcohol, try a horchta.
