Armando’s is located in the heart of Mexicantown and is an anchor to the thriving Southwest Detroit community. Established in 1967 by their friend Armando Galan, the Hernandez family took over in 1986 and has proudly operated Armando’s since. We quickly gained a loyal clientele of diners who return, generation after generation, craving the restaurant’s signature dishes and warm atmosphere. The Hernandez family looks forward to seeing you soon!

Armando's has been a 5 generation favorite of my family. It started with my great grandmother working there back in the day cooking upstairs. Now it's a banquet room, the food is awesome as usual. It takes me back in time to how my great grandmother and grandmother cooked. Which was passed down to myself ( 4th gen. ) BUT ANYWAY GREAT PLACE , GREAT FOOD, GREAT PRICE ❤

The food was excellent! Our server was very attentive and great! The only issue was that clearly they had no idea I had made a reservation. We arrived on time with our party of 8 and preceded to wait over 30 minutes for a table. Overall, we spent 3 hours in the resturant even though we were in a hurry.

Awesome service from the server all the way to the hostess. Food is authentic, salsa is spicy (YUM!), jamaica and horchata tasted like I was back in Mexico, the menu has something for EVERYONE, and there was ample parking!!

I found out 1.5 hours before my reservation was set to begin that the restaurant was instead closing for the evening. This was Christmas Eve and put my family in a huge lurch. I will never again patronize this establishment. Get your stuff together, Armando’s!!

Waitress was great. Service was just okay. Food was good. We ordered a appetizer, but it came out at the same time as our dinner..would’ve been nice to have it spaced out.

I had business collegues here from Mexico and wanted them to have a taste from home. It was a hit they enjoyed the food drinks and service. If it had not been cold that night we would have enjoyed all of Mexican Town.

The food was pretty good. Our server seemed to be in a hurry...she came to the table to get our drink order and we also wanted to order appetizers. She RAN away from the table before we could even talk about an appetizer. When she brought the drinks back, we told her we wanted the appetizers but then she wanted to take the entire dinner order as well. We weren't ready to order yet, so she came back by before the appetizers even hit the table. We explained that we'd wait until after the appetizers came to order dinner, so she RAN away again, even though a person in our party was trying to get her attention because they wanted water. The restaurant didn't seem to be overly busy, so I couldn't understand why she was trying to rush us. But our entire service was on her terms. She was quick to address requests, but even faster to run away from the table before someone else had a chance to ask for something or get a question answered. I would go back for the food and hope that the service was a bit more accommodating.

We were sat quickly. Great selection of beers and margaritas. Satisfying Mexican dishes kind of a bit greasy but that was the type of Mexican food we wanted. Fried ice cream is worth the 25-30 minute drive alone!!!!

This isn't the restaurant I remember from years past. We were seated by the door, so it was freezing every time someone walked in. The food was mediocre at best. The nachos were returned because it was a slab of hard cheese on some chips. Not what you would expect from a long-time Mexican restaurant. Perhaps they changed owners? Thank goodness for the bakery across the street. Will not go back.

Using OpenTable, we made our reservation ahead of time. We were shown to our table within 10 minutes of arrival, and had finished our meal a half hour later. Other guests without reservations were told they would have to wait an hour just to get a table.
Definitely coming back, and we're from Farmington Hills.
