Surprise! Another blog post about another Mexican restaurant!
Before Szechuan Empire came into the picture, our stand-by takeout restaurant (other than pizza) was Old Mexico Restaurant and it still has a very special place in our hearts…stomachs. Old Mexico is located in Livonia on 5 Mile Road between Middlebelt and Inkster. They have a small dining room in addition to their carry out service.
When I first started going to Old Mexico, I always got the Bob Talbert quesadilla, which was pretty much your standard chicken quesadilla but with the addition of spinach. However, in recent years, I almost always order the Old Mexico combo, it includes a beef taco (crunchy shell, not soft), a cheese enchilada, and a bean tostada. It comes with rice and beans and a side of salsa. Their salsa is very good, really fresh with great tomato flavor. Their guacamole is good too and it comes with a huge serving of really good tortilla chips. We’ve really never had a bad meal here, though fair warning, their takeout service can be a bit slow.
