If visiting this area make sure you stop in at Los Galanes Restaurant. Excellent Fast food, great, friendly service and right around the corner is the bakery and bridge to Canada.

Great restaurant with fast friendly service and great prices. The building is a bit dated and could use some freshening up - but adds to the authentic feel. If you enjoy Mexican - you'll love it!

It's a nice place full of Mexican restaurants and stores of all kind of Mexican products. It's a pitty they don't offer Yucatecan food, they are mostly oriented to Mexican food from Central, North and Western Mexico.

I came here for lunch. I was planning on spending an afternoon here to walk around and such, but there is nothing to see except restaurants and bakeries. I ate some decent tacos at Taqueria Mi Pueblo, a decent fruit cup at Michoacana & a decent churro at Mexicantown Bakery. The only highlight is the HoneyBee supermarket whose tamales, al... More

I used to love this place until today. They proved to be a FRAUDULENT BUSINESS. Yesterday I went in to buy my groceries and they said that their internet severs were down so they had to take my card and call it in to charge it.

Every place is different. Lupita's has excellent food at a very reasonable price. No alcohol and does not accept credit cards. Very friendly wait staff.

Mexican town is a quirky neighbourhood to the west of downtown. It is very colourful and has a number of (mexican) places to eat.
