Missin' Evie's

I moved to New Orleans, LA ten years ago and I still miss Evie's tamales..........FYI if you opened one here you would do great cuz they don't sure can't make them like "ya'll do".

Best Family Run Mex

I've been frequenting all the Mexican restaurants in Southwest Detroit since about 1978 or so, and Evie's is one of my favorites. You might not find what you're looking for if you love flour tortillas and sour cream, but if you like fresh, authentic, home style Tex-Mex then this is a gem. First of all the Tamales. Fresh daily are pork, spicy pork, and chicken tamales. Served as a dinner, a lunch, or by the dozen ... view more

Best Mexican food and tamales anywhere

Evie's is the best Mexican I've ever tasted, from here to Texas. The tamales are too die for with the different varieties, you can get sweet tamales (raisin and pineapple), spicy, bean and cheese, beef and bean and so on. They've come along way considering they first began their business in the basement and opened a resturaunt and have been open for about 20 years.\r Not to mention the workers are pretty much all ... view more

Cheap, Cheap, Cheap

A not-so-well-known secret amongst those of us who have ever worn a uniform is that Evie's offers discounts for military and police officers, etc. who eat there in uniform. Not that we wouldn't eat there anyway! The food is terrific and the discount applies to your take-out order as well. Evie's - the only mexican restaurant I know of that is proud to show support to service people.

If You Like Tamales . . .

Well, if you didn't, why would you be eating here? Evie's makes outstanding tamales, and they are a fantastic value. About once a month, I have to make a 20-mile one-way trip down to pick up a couple of dozen to go. With a side of rice, and some chips and salsa, dinner is a breeze. Sure, there are bigger restaurants in Mexicantown, but none with better tamales.

Evie's Tamale is the best place for a Mexican style breakfast. I would recomend it too all. The Tamales are the best the city has to offer.
