I was surprised at how poorly Detroit's Mexicantown restaurants are represented on this board. Detroit has a very large Mexican population and a bunch of good restaurants serving Mexican food! Can I name a few? Yes, Evie's Tamales on Bagley, El Zocalo, El Comal, El Rancho, Arandas, and Las Brisas come to mind.

Evie's Tamales serves Northern cuisine, not Tex-Mex, at a very reasonable price. There is a special everyday and the wait staff is great. It isn't elegant but it damnned sure is good!

      Detroit's Mexicantown does have some great eateries ... but what a huge disappointment with Restaurant Xochimilco there! Got accosted by an aggressive drunk panhandler *right* at the front door!! Bad, cold food, incredibly surly service and profanity all over the bathroom walls that ended up prompting an uncomfortable explanation to my brother's 7 year old when he started reading it outloud.

      There are many excellent Mexican restaurants in Detroit, but I'll never go to Xochimilco again..

          Not sure why everyone in Detroit goes here. It's pretty decent, but far from the best in Mexicantown.

          Despite the generic-sounding name, the "Mexicantown Restaurant" on the corner is quite good.
