If the shoe fits well in this case Hurache means Sandal yes the shape of the 

Maza dough then topped with your meat choice, mine Chorizo. This family run Super Mercado/ Taquería has made it’s mark in the new SW Detroit Downriver known a Lincoln Park Michigan. With the population of the city near 30 percent Hispanic this place has exploded over the last year opened into the main shopping n eating spot downriver. No need to drive back to Mexican Town this family set up shop from the Barrio to make all the residents happy. The selection and prices are mucho better then those large chains on the mega selection of meats.

I’ve been a regular since opening the Tacos only a Buck each every Tuesday and a Quarter more the rest of the week. The unique Torta sandwhich are a must try along with Carnitas n Barbacoa.

The owners are super friendly with the son runs the meat and restaurant side which is a large dining area with a couple dozen seats. The selection of foods,meats,veggies,sauces, and Mexican Beers are the very Best in all of downriver.




We Love they will make special order as I just had my Gringo Burgers 1.5 lb Chuck, .5 lb Hot Chorizo blended and grilled on the flat top  OH my it be great. They special cut meats and cater for parties along with whole Hogs.

Be sure to sign up for the Los Arcos Club for points that get your cooking items. You must try the Hot Chichanrones on the meat counter sold by the pound made fresh many time per day,,,goes great with your favorite Hot Sauce n Beer

You Bet Your Chimichangas They be GOOD


I just Love the influx of Mexican families moving into the downriver area over the last decade to open many new restaurants with a dozen in just the last year. Being born and raised in SW Detroit there really is no need for me to travel to Mexican Town with a couple dozens great family eating spots around our area now. Julio’s had be plating up traditional real deal meals for a decade making hundreds of regular customers eating in and carry out. 

 We always start  with the Queso Flameado that’s loaded with pepper,onions,chorizo in melted bubbly cheese.  We always get a Chimichanga dinner with the succulent chunky beef and a salad,,which is a great option to replace the rice and beans that I never eat. I so wish many other Mexican place would offer this option as a healthy option,,, I’d even pay a little more. 
Yes sir indeed they be really great Chimichangas really the best around town.

Also had taco’s and lunch special Botona that comes with a drink, WOW it’s fantastic. Just a few weeks ago they now are open on Sunday with few new special dishes reserved for that day,,, my favorite is the traditional Red Pozole loaded with chunks of Pork Shoulder and Hominy along with many other goodie, this dish is mainly made for celebrations and holidays that’s I real treat as many places don’t make this. Also a special shredded pork Taco marinated in Pineapple Juice with Bacon added,,whoa I really need to try these on a Sunday soon. Please support a family run operation that supports downriver. I’ve been enjoying all these new ethnic eating spots around the area which supports our towns since the money stays here.




Dessert the Cheesecake Chimichanga was Amazing, stuffed very a light fluffy cheese inside a deep fried flour tortilla and topped with Strawberries, Powdered Sugar and a dollop of Cool Whip outstanding. Fast friendly service with a smile in the spotless clean eating spot will keep you coming back for more.
