Torn on the rating; "Average" is not the right word nor is Very Good - our experience fell somewhere in between. Came in for an early dinner Sunday night. Took several minutes for a server of any sort to greet us. Flies were amazingly aggressive...More

El Barton is a Mexican/Italian Restaurant tucked inside a very unassuming building on Junction in Detroit. We were able to make a reservation and it opens at 5 pm each day. As we walked through the back gate we were pleasantly surprised to see all...More

We had family visiting from afar and thought that being outside on a summer evening would be nice. And it was! It was like being in a courtyard in another country. Secluded with flowers and lovely service. The menu has been updated since we’d been...More

We had three very good meals, one was not so much. The enchilada made with chicken was average. The service and food were very good. The menu is much more Mexican than Italian. Server Kathy was very attentive and well informed about menu selections.

The food was very good. However it’s a bit misleading to advertise as an Italian and Mexican restaurant. Prob 80%+ of the menu is Italian. Are there Mexican options? Yes a few but not many. Therefore if you are looking for hardcore Mexican food don’t...More
