    Probably the best Mexican food I've ever had. Try the blue corn enchiladas

    Topopo (without the chicken) and margaritas... All you need ;)

    I had heard good things but they were false. Food was crap. Only plus is the rooftop deck

    This place is overrated. The beloved cheese dip is just cottage cheese... Incredibly disappointed.

    Sitting on the roof is fun, margaritas are delicious, food was meh.. Had better quesadillas from Taco Bell

    I've been coming here for 29 years. Service has always been up and down, but GREAT FOOD. They have lost my takeout order twice in the last few months, though. Get it together!

    Fajita's are garbage.

    Sit on the roof in the summer, it's fun to watch the going ons. The cheese dip is amazing. Topopo salad is delicious, among many other dishes. You can't go wrong with whatever you get.

    Best Mexican restaurant in Lansing area! Blue corn enchiladas is definitely the best entree here. Enjoy it for less on Thursdays.

    This is not Mexican food. This is barely food. And the margaritas have never heard of tequila. Avoid.

    UpShift Digital · September 26, 2012
  • Taylor P.

    The best things on the menu: cheese dip, topopo salad, & the margaritas !

    Taylor Parker · September 20, 2012

    The roof is nice as long as there aren't bees. And try the sopapilla! It's so yummy!

    Topopo salad is amazing!

    Sub-par. Don't go.

    Liking the white cheese dip, but where's. The Michigan beer.

    Chris · June 21, 2012
  • Emily S.

    Worst fajitas ever. Tortillas we're dough, not cooked through. Chicken is completely unseasoned and bland. And no Mexican cheese, only shredded cheddar. What crap!!!

    Emily Stivers · May 15, 2012
  • Jennifer B.

    BLue corn enchiladas- nuff said!

    Jennifer Bakka · January 27, 2012

    Horrible service, excellent food. Sometimes worth it.

    Eat on the cheap- try the lunch specials.

    Best Mexican food within 50 miles. Enchiladas with the green sauce (hot) rocks. The chips and salsa are unbeatable.

    Satish · December 1, 2011

    Just had great chicken enchiladas! Salsa so fresh too!

    Yvonne Jones · November 5, 2011
  • Jeff L.

    Love the nachos! Been eating them since 1976!

    Jeff L. · September 23, 2011
  • Matthew B.

    If you order an enchilada dish, make sure you ask for the sopapillia that comes with it. YOU HAVE TO ASK, THEY WILL NOT BRING IT IF YOU DON'T.

    Matthew Binkowski · September 2, 2011
  • Mike J.

    It's all good, but the Full Topopo Salad? Incredible! Hot tip: put a napkin or two underneath the plate to save everything that falls off this overflowing concoction of flavor!

    Mike Jenkins · August 21, 2011
  • Stephen B.

    The Huevos Rancheros is very good. It is really filling as well.

    Stephen Brieloff · August 16, 2011

    Terrible service and the waiter was sweating all over my food nice and gross

    went with five people and four of the dishes ordered were amazingly delicious and huge(one was normal size and just fine). the margaritas are tasty but kinda small...get a pitcher instead.

    Sit on the roof, watch the MSU students scurry. Read more

    In the summer the roof is one of my favorite places to hang out. Get a pitcher of margaritas and don't let the chips and salsa stop coming. The service can be bad at times but who cares...?
