Best Authentic Mexican Restaurant in Michigan. I've lived all over Michigan and can honestly say, Trini and Carmen's serves the absolute best mexican food in the state. They are truly authentic. You won't find boring chain-like food there. This is why I have been comming to this restaurant for 16 years. I've been to many other mexican restaurants from chain to mom and pop, but none compare to Trini and Carmen's.
hate this place. Wow...what an utter disappointment this place was! First off, we were shown our table by walking over a floor strewn with food, pieces of paper napkins, etc....it looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in days! We then sat at our both that had torn vinyl cushions. Not small little tears but gashes. I looked around and all the booths were torn to shreds and looked 20 years old. Our waitress was braindead and spoke in a monotone voice. We were served our chips/salsa and water and waited another 15 minutes before our waitress even showed up. We ordered our meals and waited. When our waitress walked by again 15 minutes after that I asked for a refill our our drinks and water. Food arrived another 10 minutes after that. All in all the food was okay...nothing great. I ordered chicken in my burrito and taco but there was little of that as it was mostly stuffed with beans and cheese. When we got the bill I was SHOCKED to see that I had been CHARGED for the second basket of chips($1.50)...what a ripoff. I did not see it on the menu and was not told off it what I asked for another basket. Seriously, the tradition is free chips at Mexican places...don't be all cheap and start charging for extra baskets..and if you do at least be clear about it. I was also charged for chili on my nephews burrito(she asked, "Do you want chili on top?" to him again never saying there was and extra charge)...also was charged for the second refills on the pops(again, very cheap of them...a glass of pop is like 5 cents of cost....). Between the average food, average service, absolutely filthy conditions of the dining area I won't be back. Add the fact that they nickle and dimed me for such stupid things I'll make sure I let everyone know what a dump this place is.
