I've been dining here for 35 years and have had only one ""questionable"" experience. It was probably 25 years ago & we had a big party. (more than 10 people) The tip was automatically added to the bill (15%) without anyone informing us this would happen. We would have tipped alot more but figured since we were forced into what is normally an elective decision we left without leaving a tip at all. Just what was added to the bill. The food is FABULOUS! Always has been. The service is great. It's a little noisy at times but the experience is worth it. We've had to wait for a table at times but that just tells me the food there is worth it. If it wasn't any good, people would not keep going back! Be sure to try the Margaritas. The Golden Margarita is OUTSTANDING & well worth the price. Always had friendly service & ample parking.

I have always loved Mexican Village since I was a child... Until recently were told by the Hostess Lucella that my 3 year old son was being too disruptive(if you call dropping a spoon accidentally... disruptive). She then suggested that we take our son and leave. I have never been so publicly embarrassed. So i left with out paying and only had eaten 1/4 of my meal. I WILL NEVER GO BACK

I have frequented Mexican Village since I was a child but tonight, at 5pm, we were told by the Hostess Lucella that our 18 month old daughter got too much food on the floor - I explained that we always tip at least 50% and give the bus boy $20 on each visit - she said she didn't care. I further explained that I also have had parties for over 100 people at their restaurant - to no avail. She then suggested that we take our child and leave - So we did. I felt discriminated against and will never return and would recommend all to abandon this restaurant for others - I was very disappointed

In the past summer I have gone to three Mexican Restaurants on Bagley for lunch. I have ordered the exact
lunch from all three. In my opinion, the Village beats X's and Town hands down. The ingredients of the
meal seemed more fresh and much tastier. Very eager waitstaff that delivered our meal fast and hot.
All around friendly staff and very comfortable surroundings.
I have a few more restaurants to try, but the Village is the best so far.

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this place. Every time my sister comes in from town from college we go, birthdays we go, weekends when we just want some food we go. I have only been there once later on the weekend were we had to wait to be seated. Salsa is amazing and you seriously could drink it. My favorite menu item is the Chicken Chimi and if you try it, ask to have cheese melted on top, it makes it even better. You can get some salsa and chips to take home, however if you don't eat the chips warm they just don't taste as good so I would just get some chips from the store. On birthdays they'll sing and give you a free fried ice-cream. There's also one in Utica that's the same restaurant but you have to go the Detroit one once.

Love the food here. My husband and I both agree that it beats all of the other restaurants in Mexicantown. We both like that the food isn't heavy and covered in oil, like so many of the other restaurants in the area. The combination (made all chicken) is great, and with a few ala carte items is more than enough to share. It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth it. Lighted parking with attendant (free for customers). Great prices as well.

I grew up in Michigan and have beeng oing to the Mexican Village since I was a kid 40 years ago. I have since moved to Florida and still can't wait to get back to Detroit to see the Tigers play and go to the Mexican Village. Love their chicken tacos and guidsado (?) de res. I highly recommend it!

I love mexican village. they have the best chips and salsa. their mexican sandwich is the best in town. their service is super fast you never have to wait. they DONT charge extra for more chips and salsa. awesome waiters, some dont even write your order down and it always come out just the way you wanted it. the neighborhood is getting better old houses are gone and new ones going up. security gaurd in parking lots. they have very small bathrooms though.

Ive tried several restaurants in the area and there is no comparison to quality of taste and value for your money. Everyone that i have introduced to Mexican Village says its the best! The food is delicious and the alcoholic beverages are great as well as the desert, taco chips and dip and well you get the point.

Best food in Mexicantown at unbelievable prices!! Authentic food and atmosphere!! The wait is always very short and we have been there several times even when its crowded! I don't know what that other person was talking about. Great for groups, dates, or families!

If you truly want the BEST Mexican Food, this is the place to go in Mexican town! They have a huge menu selection, and a huge restaurant, we have never had to wait for a table. Service is always great, with an ample staff to make sure your dining experience is great! Try one of the many combo plates, you will get a little bit of everything, and you will still need a take home box! And if you order ice tea, they bring your glass along with a pitcher, so you don't have to keep bugging your server!

The BEST!! How else to describe it. Great prices, tons of food at top quality, and fast service in a clean atmosphere. Mexican food being my favorite, I'm pretty critical on this type of food and I have ZERO complaints about this place. Large facility means short wait times even with the line out the door. Visit this place every Friday. Recomend the Village Combo or the Burazzo!! Oh, and the Fried Ice Cream is to die for!!

When we have guests in town we take them to the Mexican Village Restaurant. The service has been lightning fast and the food was exceptional. The one negative is the location, although we are familiar with Downtown and the Mexican Village, the surrounding area is not that appealing.
the first to introduce mexican cuisine
