Trip to Mexican town - Detroit

We're heading down next saturday evening to catch a concert at The Bakery Loft (4303 W VERNOR) and need some recommendations. Haven't really spent much time in Detroit area yet as we just moved to Mid-Michigan this past year from Minneapolis. Taqueria Lupita or Al Ameer sound great for dinner based on many previous posts. I'm looking for a great late night place for grub/drinks after the concert (prob. post midnight) or a good watering hole. Also, any recs. for breakfast Sunday morning would be great too.

By the way, how is this area at night? Is it a safe enough area to grab a hotel, or should we choose a different area?

Thanks All!

  1. Taqueria Lupita or Al Ameer both are none-drinking establishments. I would look at El Barzon Michigan and Junction. Great Tequila selection and a killer mole.

    Watering Holes - Oslo's on Woodward or

    Sunday Breakfast -

    El Barzon
    3710 Junction St, Detroit, MI 48210

    1. El Barzon! Or simpler food: Taqueria Mexico.
      No hotels here, but downtown Detroit is close.

      El Barzon

      Taqueria Mexico
      406 N Scott St, Joliet, IL 60432

      1. Try Mi Pueblo.

        Big, clean and authentic. Tortas, Tamales, corn or flour (authentic) tacos. Give it a shot. Very family friendly.. it's my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area.
