Detroit area Hounds time for a roadtrip Awesome find

Hounds time to warm up the cars and drive up to Romeo. A new place has opened a few months back and it is awesome.

It is a little Mexican Taqueria that open in a small building across from the Chevy Dealer. The family owned business started as a Taqueria Truck that worked the area for the past three years. They got this place and moved the operation inside.

A very limited menu and only a handful of tables but the food is Cheap of high quality and is some of the best Mexican food you will find in the area. They have a choice of about 8-10 different meats and serve Tacos, Gringas, Burritos, Nachos, Quesadillas and Tortas that is pretty much it.

A very authentic experience,

Taqueria El Michoacano
64075 Van Dyke
Washington 48095

It is closed on Monday

Enjoy and post a reply if you have tried it,

  1. Interesting ... I'll try it next time I'm headed up to the Thumb.

    Are the "gringas" fajitas? I've sometimes heard Mexicans call them that. It's a Tex-Mex dish, but they're now served in Mexico too.

        From Wiki:
        "In Mexican cuisine, a gringa is a flour tortilla with al pastor meat with cheese, heated on the comal and then served with a salsa de chile (chile sauce)."

        1. re: tokyo

          I did try the Gringa and you are spot on Tokyo, Flour Tortilla with choice of meat rolled with cheese and put on the griddle. I liked the Quesadillas a little better but both were good.

    2. This place is most definitely worth a stop.

      The sign is easy to miss; I drove past it the first time I went looking for it. It's across from Heidebreicht Chevrolet and next to the Mobil station, about midway between 29 and 30 Mile rds.

      Tuesdays are 99-cent taco days.
