Great place for Steak melanesas – Food,Atmosphere and Service.
Dine at your own risk – I'm basing my opinion out of about 4 visits to Armando's. The servers and waitstaff are attentive, however, the food is a different story. My last visit wasn't by choice and was probably the worst experience out of the 4. First of all, we ordered the queso flameado, which means "flaming" cheese, but it was anything but that. The cheese tasted old and not only was it not flaming, but it was cold and the oil was already separating from it! Next was my entree, which was the shrimp fajitas. They weren't horrible, I just wish they were more generous w/the shrimp and the tortillas weren't fake (I consider myself a tortilla connoisseur). My friend described her margarita as "ice w/lime" and she complained that the tomatoes were bad (she had to run to the bathroom to spt 'em up). This is coming from someone that can eat a tomato like an apple. After all of that - my waitress charged me for the cheese that she initially asked if I wanted w/my fajitas, and I had told her "just on the side", but meanwhile, my other friends had a cheese overkill on their fajitas and didn't get charged 1 cent. Hmmm. Sooo, dine at your own risk.
Mexican food as Detroiters have come to know and love it. – In Short
The customary Mexicantown setting: Families, Mexican music competing with TV sports, walls hung with sombreros, pinatas, giant tequila bottles and paintings of Aztec warriors and princesses. The familiar burritos, enchiladas, chiles rellenos, chimichangas, tacos and fajitas, plus a few seafood dishes and steaks served Mexican or American style. Be sure to order guacamole. Also, try the tacos el pastor (pork cubes on a warm corn tortilla) and the seafood taco.
Family Place – Went on my birthday and got a small cake and was sang "Happy Birthday Amigo" ! As always the food was GREAT as was the service.Food is real mexican style and spicey as you want it and for starters you get 2 sauces,1 is mild and 1 is hot with chips.Going to Armandos will make you feel right at home,friendly,fast service,hot fresh food and plenty of smiles from everyone!
Best Mexican Food in the World – I have been to many (many) Mexican Restaurants before and I (and my boyfriend) have NEVER found anyone better than Armando's. We've tried food in Mexico and Texas and they still couldn't beat Armando's. It's our favorite place to eat when it comes to Mexican food!
