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!
