    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.

    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!

    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...?

    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!

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

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

    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.

    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!!!

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

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