We stopped in here by accident when another restaurant we wanted to try was closed on a snowy day visiting Detroit. The space is small and not fancy but the food was amazing and the service was very good. We had chips and salsa and...More

We eat here at least once a month. Some months more and we live 55 miles away. This is real Mexican food. If you are looking for a real fancy place, this will not be it. This is a old fashion Mexican local dinner, with...More

For a gringo, I think I know a thing or two about Mexican food. With certain exceptions, deep-fried isn't really Mexican. Evie's has been serving up the real thing for a long time now. The tamales are outstanding. But, everything else I've tried from their...More

I love Evie's. I live an hour away but is is worth the trip. I always get some salsa to go. The tamales are my favorite.

Nice little wall in the hall restaurant. Every dish was delicious. I had the cheese enchiladas, chicken quesadilla & chicken enchiladas. The lemonade was equally good. The prices are even better. Every lunch special comes with rice & beans.

Have been here numerous times. I guess that means it is good enough to keep going back. It is small, family owned. You go for the food, not the atmosphere. You can have a cheap, filling lunch for $5. Also, the local Police agencies frequent...More

This place has the best tamales. I could eat them for the rest of my life. I've had most of their options, spicy, various meats, etc. it's all good. Every time.

Many other places to get these tamales. I think they freeze them and then thaw them out. The masa is dry for me. Very small amount of stuffing. Not impressed. Prefer la Gloria.
