Detroit >Evie's Tamales
Best Mexican food and tamales anywhere.
Evie's is the best Mexican I've ever tasted, from here to Texas. The tamales are too die for with the different varieties, you can get sweet tamales (raisin and pineapple), spicy, bean and cheese, beef and bean and so on. They've come along way considering they first began their business in the basement and opened a resturaunt and have been open for about 20 years.
Not to mention the workers are pretty much all family (related).
Cheap, Cheap, Cheap. A not-so-well-known secret amongst those of us who have ever worn a uniform is that Evie's offers discounts for military and police officers, etc. who eat there in uniform. Not that we wouldn't eat there anyway! The food is terrific and the discount applies to your take-out order as well. Evie's - the only mexican restaurant I know of that is proud to show support to service people.
If You Like Tamales . . .. Well, if you didn't, why would you be eating here? Evie's makes outstanding tamales, and they are a fantastic value. About once a month, I have to make a 20-mile one-way trip down to pick up a couple of dozen to go. With a side of rice, and some chips and salsa, dinner is a breeze. Sure, there are bigger restaurants in Mexicantown, but none with better tamales.
EXCELLANT. Evie's Tamale is the best place for a Mexican style breakfast. I would recomend it too all. The Tamales are the best the city has to offer.
