I was pleasantly surprised at how good this place was. Someone here is thinking about the menu and not doing food as usual. Very nice. The wait staff was quick and professional. Attentive but not intrusive. Our entrees were served hot (a rarity these days it seems) and were tasty.
First time in Detroit and had a fab time. The best Eggs Benedict ever. I think they called them Benny. I had mine with salmon, which was sliced perfectly. The eggs didn't get cold with salmon. Love the arugula, red onions, capers with yummy hollandaise sauce. Really good coffee and mimosa with peach champagne. The Bloody Mary looked delicious but I had already enough drink. Can't wait to go back.
Super cute little place downtown. I came in for lunch and it was not too crowded, we got seated right away. As for food I got a cup of soup it was ok a little too heavy for my liking but had good cauliflower flavor. I shared the pork rinds with a friend it is a large portion, sharing is a good idea. They come out super hot and fresh, eating them was like nothing else I have had, however if you do not like hot get it without the pepper sauce. For drink selections they have a great variety of hot teas to pick from.
This place is really good! Fun atmosphere and a quite varied menu. Went for brunch, had the spicy belly eggs Benedict and it was great! Multiple options for those with different diet requests and super accommodating staff. Definitely seems as if they use good quality ingredients and really care about the overall experience. Excellent choice for a morning downtown.
I love their sausage omelette. Their to-go service is reliable and professional; they have a smaller to-go menu. Have yet to try the drinks. It is always very busy here so plan accordingly.

Great traditional tacos served up with grilled onions and limes. Larger than the other taco trucks in the area but cost a little more too. One of the best around.
Tacos here are wrapped in pillow soft corn shells. I wanted to stack a few tacos and lay my head on them. The chicken dinner is the star here. They season the chicken with Mexican spices and then have a Mexican woman dance on top of the meat to get the flavor to sink in even deeper. The hot sauce is smokey and delicious. The rice and beans are an afterthought that you can do without. The tongue tacos are delectable. If that's what you're into. It was hard to distinguish where the tongue taco started and my tongue ended. I didn't notice till halfway through the tongue taco that I was bleeding from the mouth. I had eaten half my tongue clear off. ;) I would come back to this establishment.
Some of the most delicious authentic tacos!! The chorizo is amazing and they have mini beers! The roasted chicken is also a must have!! Best chicken ever! 🍗🍗
Great grilled chicken and BBQ. The sides and tortilla were awesome too. Definitely recommend for lunch.
Well seasoned. Fresh food. Best chicken in the city. I usually order the steak burrito, and it's excellent every time!

The service was fantastic and very welcoming. Our food was delicious and the eggs were cooked to perfection!!! If I ever come back to Detroit, I'm from Seattle, I will eat here.
The cooks and wait staff are top notch. I recommend eating at the counter. Much fun.
Always an awesome experience! Everyone from the wait staff to the cook's are personable, funny and a delight to come see and the added bonus is they also have Great Food! The cinnamon rolls are to Die for. It's impossible to come to this place and not order a cinnamon roll! A must place to eat! And total worth the wait to be seated.
Used to come here quite few times back when and stopped by to pick up my go to catfish, eggs and Mexican rice. It is still pretty good, the rice way better than one they serve at Whole Foods. I did notice the increase in price but I'd come again if I'm in the area. Thanks Clique!
Great food! Could be a tad bit cleaner, but not unbearable. Nice wait staff, nice atmosphere!

Definitely some of the best Mexican food I've had. Service was great and fast, food was incredible, price point is very reasonable. Will definitely return, and be spreading the word!
It's the only restaurant in Mexico town that serves real Mexican food. It's not Mexican American it's Mexican food. The Waitresses are top-of-the-line and the food is reasonably priced. La Comida ES sabrosisimo!
One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. The breakfast is awesome and the soups are amazing. Friendly attentive staff. Never had a bad experience here.
I've been many times. It's excellent. Has a wide selection of dishes and great selection of taco fillings (pig cheeks, beef tongue...).
The best food ever! I mean it doesn't matter what u get. Love love love it

I LOVE this place! They know how to make great chorizo tacos with the perfect amount of spice. Their nachos are great, they have amazing watermelon water, a fantastic selection of delicious food!!! I never know what to get, honestly, everything is so good! The staff is also tremendously helpful. This place is wonderful!
Great food that doesn't weigh you down like other Mexican restaurants. I love the chicken chimichanga. Reasonable prices and a real diamond in the rough.
The most amazing quick serve taco joint! It is a little off the beaten path, and that makes it even better. It is a family run tiny little restaurant. They all are great and easy to deal with. They go out of there way to make the customer happy.
The most delicious tacos I've ever tasted to date! The crunchy chicken tacos with the deep fried corn shell are to die for 😍
Good chicken tacos, decent prices, not my favorite Spanish rice
