Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $8, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Armando's Mexican Restaurant. For 40 years, Armando's has been an established Detroit name in family-friendly Mexican dining. See food disappear into the starving belly of the kid you always forget to feed with the Baja seafood tacos, grilled, marinated scallops and shrimp served with diced onions, bacon bits, and melty muenster cheese on a fluffy tortilla ($12.25). Fake tears of guilt for breaking your sister's iron lung with a spicy bite of campechana, a fiery Mexican-style shrimp cocktail ($11.75). Mini taquitos tickle your chicken bone by delivering poultry flanked by guacamole, pico de gallo, and sour cream ($5.75). Don't forget a classic margarita as you watch your favorite competitive pogo-er stick to victory on one of Armando's large flat screens ($6.25).

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.

Good parking lot at rear of bldg. Greeted warmly and seated promptly. The wait staff was top notch, friendly, helpful and attentive. I would dine here again. Much better than what is a very popular Mexican restaurant in the area. The food was ample and very good.
