The busiest time at the big restaurant, wich seats 150 on the main floor and another 100 upstairs, is often on Sunday mornings, when families crowd in after church. Good thing Mi Pueblo offers a spacious parking lot which is constantly patroled by security guards allowing your visit even more convenient.
Mi Pueblo restaurant wants to maintain the family aura even though it added margaritas and mexican beers to the menu. The gazebo-style wood bar has no bar stools, to preserve the family friendly atmosphere “ Hour detroit magazine september 2006”
