Mexicantown is located in Southwest Detroit, one block north of the Ambassador Bridge. Outsiders flock here for Mexican cuisine at popular restaurants such as Mexican Village, Evie's Tamales, El Zocalo and Xochimilco. Its smaller, family-run taquerias, ethnic grocery stores, tortilla factories and bakeries are also worth a visit, too. Many have more authentic Mexican offerings. Bakeries and shops are located on Bagley, both on the east and west sides of the Interstate 75 and along Vernor.

Development News “The Southwest Greenway will make it easy and fun for people living and working on the west side of Detroit to get to the Detroit Riverfront,” says Matt Cullen, chairman, Detroit Riverfront Conservancy.
