Armando's Mexican Restaurant
It's Friday night at 1 a.m., and all you want in the whole world is a taco. Luckily, Armando's Mexican Restaurant is there, ready to serve you a dish and maybe pour you a margarita nightcap. Though it's open late, Armando's is no sleepy dive—even after midnight, it's typical to see a line of people waiting to snag one of the tile-topped tables. Nearly a half-century after opening—and almost 30 years after the Tigers celebrated their 1984 World Series title there—the restaurant is still one of the city's most beloved. The Huffington Post recently named it as a staple of Detroit's Mexican-food scene. CBS Local praised their signature sizzling fajitas for their juicy marinade, and also declared that Armando's has "one of the best tortas" in Detroit.
Aside from the lauded, eclectic menu—which includes Cuban sandwiches, Spanish steak, and the perennially popular Baja seafood tacos—it's easy to see why the restaurant retains such a following. Warm yellow walls hung with vintage photos give the dining room a homey feel, while a covered patio beckons with colorful flags and twinkling lights. The casual atmosphere invites guests to linger over a peach margarita while watching the game on flat-screen TVs, or to camp out at a table once mariachi players begin to strum a lively tune. Luckily, Armando's makes it hard for anyone to overstay their welcome: they're open until 2 a.m. Sunday–Thursday and until 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The slow-cook beef in the stew gravy is great over rice. It is also in the beef burrito. Beyond fork-tender and it kind of melts. If you just ate that, it is worth the money.Neil Y., Yelp, 8/17/13
They started us off with some chips and salsa. Great chips here! They had a nice consistency and a solid crunch to them.Michael C., Yelp, 12/13/12
