Cecila the Best – I hope I spelt her her name correctly? She is probably the best waitress we have ever had and trust me we have been everywhere!! When we go we always ask for for her she's the best and teaches you proper north american spanish and we love it. We stopped going to the other resturant down the street for numerous reasons, Our first experience was with our waitress Cecila she made it so enjoyable that we haven't looked back. I am a Chef by trad and their food is as close as you will get it mexican without going to Mexico. They are the best in food, drink and yes they have a gold mine in Cecila
Los Galans Mx Restaurant #1 food in Mexican Town! – This is the real taste of "real" mexican food. I am amazed people actually compare this authentic Mexican food with TacoBell or other places that know nothing about real mexican food! There is no comparison! There is a full menu and Margaritas to die for!
But remember, you get what you pay for! If you order a cheap Margerita, you will get a cheap margerita! Try the Cadillac Margerita-Awesume!
The manager by the name of Joyce needs an attitude adjustment and needs to stay away from humans! This women is alway angry and quick to jump down your throat or defensive all the time but don't let her keep you from enjoying great food!
Blue Margerita is not the same owners and NOT the same food! This is a completely different restaurant with completely different food. Sure they are related but clearly you can taste the difference in the food!
Nice clean atmosphere, great buffet, good prices – We went there as a church group from Goodrich MI, several Sundays ago. We called several hours before going and they were able to make reservations.
The luncheon buffet was great and a good way to try things. They make tortillas right as you enter and that is quite nice indeed. The tortillas you get are fresh made. Next time, I will try their fish tacos.
They have an outside sidewalk patio, at which to sit would be fun. The day we went it was in the middle 90s so the indoor atmosphere was nicer with the air conditioning. Although there were several people sitting outside in spite of the heat.
I thought the bathrooms were inaccessible to wheelchairs because they were down at the bottom of several stairs. The waitress, who was very nice, took me to another bathroom on the main floor that was ample and clean. It did not have a lock but others knew to knock first before entering.
This restaurante is a true hidden treasure. – !Alimento excelente! The manager was very pleasant with this Gringo. The smell, originality, and genuine Mexican cuisine was superb. I especially enjoyed the buffet; there was more than enough to choose from. My elderly friend, Don Rogelio, who took me there, just laughed as I went back for seconds, then raised eyebrows and told me, "Stay away from scales." Los Galanes is a bit out of the way for an occasional traveler but one needs only find "Little Mexico" and ask for location. Very worthwhile and I recommend Los Galanes very highly.
I visited this establishment last night for the 1st time with a friend and a married couple who are Mexican that just relocated here. I had no Idea such a place existed here in Detroit! A Latino Night Club! Soy latino y ha vivido aqui toda mi vida! We enjoyed ourselves very much but we did have a few bumps in the night. We arrived around 10:30pm and it took a while to find a table until we got help of a waitress. The lady of our group was approached by a drunk early on in an uncomfortable manner, but we laughed it off. Then while my friends were dancing, another drunk guy sitting at the table next to us came and took their two chairs. He was rude and want to start something with me but the waitress helped us again and found us new chairs. The server did and excellent job in making sure we were ok.
My single friend that came with us is a "gringo" and he enjoyed himself too. English music with a Latino flavor like Pittbull, Daddy Yankee, and Colby O'Donis feat. Akon made him feel included throughout the night. My Mexican sister-in-law suggested "Los Galanes" but has never been herself. I am glad everbody gets frisked at the door!
I would definately visit again, and I'd like to try the restaurant as well.
My favorite Mexican Town restaurant – Okay, i'm pretty serious when it comes to critiquing Mexican food since I love to cook it, eat it, and I absolutely love to try everyone else's. With that being said, I can tell you that you won't be disappointed with Los Ganales. Appetizers are worth the treat (especially the chorizo and queso), the caldo is superb, the shrimp fajitas are excellent, and you can't go wrong with the homemade tortillas to accompany any dish (btw, you can tell a lot by a restaurant by their torts). Their buffet has a huge variety and is a great way to try a little bit of everything. As for the service...so far so good, as opposed to some previous reviewers. But hey, their prices are good, so something's gotta give at times!
Joce the manger has no people skills! She is rude and unpleasant. for that reason I would never go back! Other then that the place isnt bad. – My family and I have been there several times. We like the entertainment. But when I called once to ask for some information, Joce answer the call and was very rude, cut me off, and had no interest in helping find out about some questions I had. On top of it she gave false information. She is not the manger and she had no idea of what she was talking about. If they have people like that answering the calls from good customers, it only gets a one star from me. DONT GO THERE!
Eat and dance your cares away at this Mexicantown favorite.
– In Short
Los Galanes is a musical oasis on weekend nights, when Los Sultanes de Ritmo (the Sultans of Rhythm) play Latin, Tex-Mex and Mexican tunes. When it's warm, dine outside while strolling guitarists sing. The kitchen stays busy preparing all the usual Mexicantown fare, with a few additions. Fajitas and taquitos can be ordered with roast goat as well as beef, chicken or swordfish.
Muy bueno! – My friend and I went on Cinco de Mayo and this place was PACKED. Nevertheless, we STILL had great service. I had two margaritas (pricey, but good) and veggie fajitas. I was a little dismayed that they had run out of all seafood (no shrimp fajitas for me) but what can I expect on Cinco de Mayo? (I was also bummed not to see fish tacos on the menu.) One reviewer said the food was very mild. This is true, but all you have to do is ask for some hot sauce! I asked for some habanero and was brought it very quickly, and it spiced up my dinner very well. The rice was good, beans were good. Everything was good. Yum!
Our Favorite Restaurant – My husband and I moved out of Detroit three years ago. We still take a long drive back to Los Galanes as often as possible. It is the greatest food. I crave the salsa. The fajitas, chimis and enchiladas are our favorites. I cannot praise this restaurant enough. Go, you won't regret it.
