    Authentic is where it is at, here on the NW side of GR we got that made! El Cunado, El Granjero, Maggies...I probably mentioned these places somewhere before. Then there are the tiendas or mercados!

    Had barbacoa taco's for lunch yesterday. Beef cheek meat-cilantro-onion on corn tortilla, I had to have their white cheese added though as I am a Caucasian and need cheese with most meats. Tonite we are having carnitas from the local tienda on corn tortillas and that weird squash I don't know what it is called, and some coconut cookies.

    My wife knows what all that is, she spent time in Guatemala, Mexico and parts of central America so I been digging that.

    Pupusa's and fried yucca are another authentic favorite from El Salvadore! We have to go to the SE side of GR for that though.....

    Best Mexican food is evies in southwest Detroit little hole in the wall place. Tried all the other "Mexican" places down there I'd rather eat Taco Bell then go back to them.

    There is a mexican place opened up in Lake City this spring and the food is good. You get a lot of it for a decent price. There are 2 mexican ladies running it and doing the cooking and they do a great job

    This is on the lake side of the street before you get to the BBQ place. Next to the little park on main street. Don't remember the name. There is a new resturant on M 55 where Mr Johns use to be. They gutted th building this spring and it must be good because it sure has been busy

    I looked it up. El Potrero Mexican Restaurant. The Muskrat Lake Cafe used to be in that spot.

    Mr. John's = CJ'S Pub & Grub = Countryside Grill.

    I hear Countryside has no liquor license, but the Lake City Christian Reformed Church has its Men's Breakfast there every Tuesday at 9:00 am.

    The two fish dishes (pescado frito and ceviche) are from Pescaderia San Carlos and the Sopa de Lima is from El Moro - both in Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

    I like Taqueria Mi Pueblo in Detroit. Most places in Mexican Town are awful.

    My friend tried the fried cod fish dinner and was not impressed. He should go again and try something else. At least it is conveniently close to 7 Mile.
