Sierra Station envelops guests into a festive world of authentic Mexican cuisine, margaritas, and good conversation. The space evokes the atmosphere of a mission-style plaza in the Southwest with a sunny outdoor patio characterized by cobblestones and hanging gardens. For over three decades, families and friends have gathered at Sierra Station, supping on fests of spicy-sweet chicken mole, hearty tamales, and zesty chili relleno.
In the restaurant which tied for Best Mexican Restaurant in 2009 by HOUR Detroit, head chef and owner Norberto Garita blends his Mexican heritage with experience in Italian kitchens to craft El Barzon's menus of Italian and Mexican dishes. Diners can embark on the culinary excursion with the zuppa di vongole brimming with clams and shrimp swimming in tomato broth ($12) and the chilies rellenos packed with beef or cheese and drizzled with homemade tomato sauce ($7). Ham and cheese snuggle like a knight and his chain-mail blanket inside a lightly breaded chicken breast in the pollo El Barzon ($16), and Mediterranean-imported sea bass rests under a layer of fresh herbs and garlic ($25). Guests can also sample classic international dishes such as homemade italian pastas ($12+) and mexican tortas ($5+).

Growing up with eight siblings, Rafael López came to value the nights when the whole clan gathered around meals. Using recipes from his homeland, the Mexican native now re-creates such feasts at Señor López Mexican Restaurant. Rafael's culinary team showcases their talents with specialties such as housemade tamales and cheese-filled fried poblano peppers covered in special ranchera sauce. The rest of Señor López's enormous menu spans the spectrum of classic Mexican flavors, from vegetarian fajitas and beef-tongue tacos to breakfast burritos filled with chorizo and eggs.
