Reporter Food: Steak Burrito at Taco Tienda Mexicana

Reporter Food: Steak Burrito at Taco Tienda Mexicana

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Dec. 17, 2018)

Madison Heights, MI – Inside the strip mall at the corner of John R. and Whitcomb (13 1/2 Mile) is a tiny Mexican grocery store, and inside that grocery store is a cafe called Taco Tienda Mexicana.

This authentic Mexican restaurant features quick, inexpensive, and delicious fare that includes tacos, tostadas, burritos, tamales and more. During weekday lunches, the place is vibrantly packed but the service is friendly and efficient.

I recently introduced this hidden gem to a friend. They enjoyed the chicken enchiladas which came topped with slices of avocado, enchilada sauce and shredded queso cheese.  I went with one of my favorites, the steak burrito and a green apple flavored soda in a bottle.

Find this delicious spot for lunch or dinner at 31642 John R in Madison Heights.  Also check them out on Facebook.
