Detroit's Mexicantown

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!

Regards,

Richard

    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..

    >>Xochimilco<<

    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.
