My family has been going to this family owned restaurant for 15 years. The enchiladas, tacos, and chimichanga are really good. Steak delmonico is a nice treat as well.

Although this visit was not as good as their usual quality, it was still better than most. The value of their dining is always top notch. It is difficult to find better. I have had much higher priced food at Mexican Town, but it was NEVER as good.

We stopped by the restaurant while in Detroit. It was busy, but the staff was friendly. The food was very good, and you could tell it was homemade. The portions are large, and the menu has a wide variety of items to choose from (the hard part!). While we were there, many "regulars" came in and were greeted by name.... More

This neighborhood gem has been around over 30 years and is still family run. The service is fast, attentive, but not too attentive.

I ate here a couple times in recent weeks since it was suggested by a local and is just around the corner from where I have been working. The food here is very good, the portions are huge, and service is friendly and quick. I'll be sure to return to Taco Especial when working in Ecorse in the future!

Just accross the border from Lincoln park is a small local Mexican Restaurant which is highly recommended!! We've been going there for several years usually for carry out but also dining in with friends. Excellent food, excellent service and the prices are very resonable!!

I so love this great cooked to perfection Taco's on Monday's filled with ground beef and only $ 6 for a six pack to go only. The wife loves those great big Chimi;s loaded with succulent chunky beef. Really cool thing is they sell tacos, tamales and burrito's by the single so you can try them all. See the menu... More
