I wish we would have seen the roach before we finished our food.



To eat there, you have to overlook so much. Like the horrid smell, the awful floor, the bad lighting, and the rooms that obviously are not kept up with. If you make through all of that, and have the food, it almost seems worth it. The food was good.



But when the roach crawling up the wall was spotted by my fiance, we were done. I will never step foot back that place.

BEST MEXICAN IN DETROIT

The Super Nacho's are out of this world, no one makes them better then Xoc's. And their Amaretto Organe Bloosoms are fantastic, i would love the recipe. Yeah the decor has not changed in 20 yrs, but that is what make you feel like you are in a wonderful old mexican restaurant. If i lived closer i would be their everyday.

Unclean ! Roaches on table!!

Very dissapointed! Some friends took me there for my Birthday, we were seated in a small room at a table in the back we could barely get in seats. The place was very outdated and dirty looking. We had placed our order and wating on food to arrive when a cockroach ran across the table, I smashed it with the salt shaker we ask to be moved to a diffrent table and told the manager about the cockroches he laughed it off he did make any apology! we were seated at diffrent table we had to ask for silverware,water,chips, service was bad no one came see if we were alright if we needed anything. I had not been here for few years and I will not got back again!!! I did not eat my food for fear of not knowing how dirty the kitchen is we paid the bill and left hungry.

Poor Experience

We headed to xochimilco yesterday as both a family Easter celebration and also my son's 20th birthday. I hadn't been there in probably 20 years or more. That is how the decor looked, very outdated and almost grungy. I had made a reservation for a party of 12. They started off by trying to seat us at 2 tables when there was barely anyone in the restaurant. We finally got that straight.
The flaming cheese was not flaming (what is that about?) It tasted ok but no ambience. For the first time I can remember, I actually sent my chile rellenos back. It was horrible, full of grease. The staff was very drab and not energetic at all...maybe they didn't like working Easter. We had to ask for some items like water several times. The chicken fajitas were very good. No deep fried ice cream at all. It was nice to get the family together but based on our experience I would give xochimilco a miss next time. I am not a really fussy diner but I do like to feel appreciated as a patron. No where was that evident in our visit.

Nice lunch

A fun lunch in Mexican town. The enchiladas were tasty, hot and fast.

Very Disappointed

My family and friends decided we wanted to eat some good Mexican food. Since Xochimilco has not been a disappointed in the past we decided to have a late evening meal there. All of our meals tasted like frozen food that was reheated and served. Sorry to say we will not go back there again nor will I recommend this establishment to any of my family or friends. I am truly amazed at how poor the quality of food tasted considering they use to be the best in town.

Very good food at a great price.

We went as a church group of about 12 people. We called several hours before getting there and they made reservations.

The men's bathroom was not accessible for me in my wheelchair but they let me use the ladies, and let others know I was using it, even though I could lock the door.

All in all, a nice experience and we will consider going back as a group.

terrible food

Horrible food. I live in Sw Detroit and would never recommend anyone eat here or eat there myself. Quality of food has gone downhill in last 10+ years. There are so many better restaurants here i dont understand why people eat there. No locals eat there trust me! Try lupitas, or evies down the street or even go down vernor to los altos, or mi pueblo! Not a good restaurant-end of story!

YUM

XOCHIMILCO is my all time favorite mexican restaurant. I can barely say the name but that doesn't matter...The food is awesome (their wet burrito is my favorite), resonable in price, and the service is quick. I also am a big fan of their tastey margaritas.

eating good is on bagley st.

I have been eating at xochimilco restaurant for over 16 years and beleive me this is some goood food. Fast service and good food in one place is a match. Its plenty of mexican restaurant in this same area and I have tried my fair share of them but, always back at this one. This is the best. Believe me I'm picky.

Good Mexican/Latino food and family-friendly!

Several bars located within the two story restaurant. The slightly cramped seating doesn't detract from the good food and overall fun atmosphere.

Best Mexican Food in Michigan

Xochimilco is hands down the best Mexican restaurant in Michigan. I have been eating at Xochimilco's for over 16 years and still, no other Mexican resturant compares. We live in Canton. We have several Mexican resturants within walking distance or short driving distances. These resturants are pretty good. However, we still drive to Southwest Detroit everytime we want Mexican food. The drinks, the amount of food and the pure deliciousness is worth it.

Everybody's Favorite

I don't know where to begin here, but this is the big Mexican restaurant in Southwest Detroit by which all the others are judged ! It's my favorite of the 20 or so that I visit, and deservedly so. Two floors, and it gets really crowded on the weekend, but you can wait at the bar upstairs with a Margarita or a Dos Equis and a shot of Sauza. There are many things that I could mention, but consistency leaps to mind. In all the years since 1978 that I have visited this place, I can only remember having one or two bad experiences. The place is a little dark, and a little loud sometimes, but that is tempered with hot tortilla chips fresh from the fryer, better than average Margaritas, again better than average service, and many outstanding dishes. I'd be shirking my duties as a reviewer not to mention the Tacos Al Carbon, marinated steak tacos served with chopped tomatoes, onions, and diced jalapenos. The corn tortilla is just fried in oil until very hot, not crunchy, and you need to ask for them double wrapped. They are arguably the best entre in Mexicantown !



You really can't go wrong here, no matter what you order. The Botana is a meal, not an appetizer, and a delicious array of fresh vegetables loaded on top of thick refried beans on chips covered with a generous amount of melted cheese. They don't skimp on the portions here ! The Enchiladas, Quesidillas, and Chimichangas are worth a stop too, not to mention the Fajitas or skirt steaks. Go NOW....if you don't like it I'll buy :D...Tom
