Reporter Food: Escamilla Amigos in Ortonville

Ortonville, MI – A recent visit to NE Oakland County gave me the chance to add Escamilla Amigos to our list of Oakland County restaurants.

Escamilla Amigos is a family-owned cafe with authentic Mexican fare.

I picked up a chicken quesadilla, made on the most amazing homemade tortillas. The chicken was greasy and flavorful.  The cheese was rich and gooey.  It came with re-fried beans and seasoned rice, as well as a bit of lettuce, pico de gallo, guac, and sour cream.

The menu offers a variety of items, including chalupas, camarones a la diabla, house-made tamales, chile relleno and flautas. Plus they’ve got the basics like tacos and burritos.

Escamilla Amigos is located at 39 North Ortonville Road in Ortonville, Michigan 48462.  Check them out online at
