Mexican Food

My favorite West Coast Mexican food place is a chain. And they show up if you do a Name search in Mexician food on my Garmin 750.

Rubios. Fish tacos can't be beat.

Non Chain Mexican Food

A great one in my area is called "El Mexicano Restaurant". This is authentic Mexican food. The original was in Bay City, MI. They recently expanded to two adjacent cities. Very good food and very reasonable prices. The information can be found at this URL. www.elmexicano1.com/home

I'm new to this so I'm not

I'm new to this so I'm not sure if this is the correct way to make a correction. I grew up in Southwest Detroit (and lived there for 55 years) and I have to say you got the right ones from that area. There is an error though on:
Mi Pueblo Restaurant which is at 7278 Dix., Detroit, MI, 48216 1-313-841-3315. The problem is that it is listed in the POI as Dix Hwy, which puts the coordinates in Lincoln Park. Dix is actually a Street (or just Dix) at that location in Detroit. The actual coordinates should be:
42.317031 -83.124409 This will put you right in their driveway (I checked it and had a wonderful dinner)

Also, I wanted to add one that is not in Southwest Detroit, but is in Lincoln Park:
Tijuana's Mexican Kitchen, 1679 Dix Hwy,Lincoln Park MI 48146-1447,(313) 383-9100,
42.258298 -83.190199
They have the best salsa and chips I have ever had anywhere (including Mexico). Their dinners are excellent and they are an authentic Mexican family ran business.

If I did this wrong, please let me know. Thank you for all of the info that is in the file already.

You did it right

The best way to submit corrections is just as you did, post it on the thread about the subject.

Another way is to find the person who maintains the file (they are listed next to the file name) and click on their name. This brings up info about them where you can click on contact and send them a private email with the correction as well.

Welcome to the site. You are a contributor already and will probably be receiving a badge showing that fact.

Are Local Chains Okay?

Will you accept nominations of local chains (say 4 or 5 restaurants owned by the same people) as opposed to national chains?

Just use Google maps aerial and street level views. When you fnd the spot, right click on the aerial map and select "What's here". Google will dislay the coordinates.

Awesome Phoenix Mexican

Bueno!

Hey, you know Arizona has some of the best mexican food ever! Many different areas of Mexico produce excellent dishes and I need to list just two of my absolute favorite places (but certainly not the only ones) in Phoenix and Tucson.

There are TOO MANY "white" Mexican restaurants (and I am Scottish) that cater to the "ketchup eaters." I was raised in the Southwest and if you go to a restaurant full of old white people you are in the WRONG place. I love the places where mi Abuelita or Tia is cooking or serving the food. Warning to the gueros! Try a tiny bit of the homemade salsa or bring your own fire extinguisher. Starch works MUCH better than soda or water. Let the rice or bread SIT on your tongue to soak up the oils (yes the hot part are oils and that's why they don't rinse off)

That being said great Mexican food may be a bit spicy but only when gulped. Great cooking has LOTS of taste along with the spice. Heat ONLY is the mark of cheap tourist trap hot sauce and college kid wing eating contests.

Now to the good stuff:

Rosita's Place
33.466578,-112.03233
2310 E McDowell Rd
Phoenix, AZ 85006

Homemade EVERYTHING and the chips come out to the Table HOT. Still family run, and family style. Green Chile burros guaranteed pleaser, but the Menudo Colorado, Posole or Cocido is also excellent. I have never had a bad meal here, only great ones.

Teresa's Mosaic Cafe
2455 N Silverbell Rd
Tucson, AZ 85745
GPS: 32° 15.09'N, 111° 0.9'W (32.251547° N, 111.015001° W)

Family Run, tortilla's made in front of you, awesome breakfasts and some of the BEST homemade guacamole will spoil you for anything less. The mole (that's pronounced mo-lay for you new kids) sauces are the best and Teresa's is a great place for a casual meal or business lunch.

Hope you like these places as much as I do!

Arrato Vatos!
