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.

Torta,Queso Flameado,Burrito & Amazing Salsa

To die for Salsa!!! – Tijuana’s serves excellent food but their salsa cannot be beat. The food as always at the 2 other location’s always spot on with Queso Flameado, Salsa,Tamale,Chunky Beef Burritos Tacos and a Mexican Pizza.My alltime favorite is the Queso Flameado made with melted cheese loaded with Chorizo plated up bubbling hot with house made flour tortillas which I order every time along with the popular on Mexican sandwich called the Torta with either steak or chicken. The Salsa is by far the best you’ll try in the area with many stopping in just to purchase bags of chips and salsa to go.


Tijuana’s is a family owned and run operation started over 20 years ago in Southwest Detroit with locations in Lincoln Park,Southgate and Dearborn Michigan. The express location in Southgate has the real deal El Grande Burrito Lunch Special

Oh my the Mega Burrito a super great lunch special every day till 2pm is a must try for only $3.99 stuffed with your choice of meats,,,I Love the chunky beef. I tell you this is a meal deal along with every Tuesday the 99 cent Tacos are just loaded and topped with shredded cheese. The lunch special are only $ 5.50 and many come with a soda. A small counter with stools you can eat in or take out which is the main business,,,oh yea they also deliver. Be sure to check out there Facebook page. ENJOY

Poutine Places Popping all over Detroit,,, Canada’s Comfort Food

Poutine, French fries are covered with fresh cheese curds, and topped with brown gravy. In a Quebec poutine,Fries: Usually of medium thickness, and fried (sometimes doubly) so that the inside stays soft, while the outside is crispy.Cheese curds: Fresh cheese curds are used to give the desired texture. The curd size may vary but is usually slightly smaller than bite-sized.Gravy: Generally a light and thin chicken, veal, or turkey.
I’ve been a Poutine lover for 40 years since first having this great dish in Windsor and on many trips to Niagara Falls Canada before checking into the hotel I stop at the Burger King on Clifton Hill to enjoy a large cup filled with my alltime favorite comfort food. Since then I’ve tried many of the fast food joints around Canada,,yes they all serve this dish and many local pubs and restaurants in and around Windsor.

A few years ago a place in Wyandotte,, Joe’s Hamburger had the very first Poutine around Detroit and now about a dozen plus spots have there own take on this dish. Only one is the best and truly original as the 2 owners relocated in Detroit from Toronto just a little over a year ago. The spot Brooklyn Street Local in the heart of Corktown is a must try, with them plating up the original and one topped with Bacon. They keep it real as other’s have missed the mark by not using the White Cheese Curds which is not the same prepared any other way,,I assure you as I make this dish at home many times per year. You must try Poutine at any spot you see the dish on the menu and then drive to Brooklyn Street Local and have the real deal or just drive across the border to Windsor and head to Smoke and Spice to have the Pulled Pork Poutine a dish you will never forget or find anywhere I’ve been.
