Had lunch here recently and was not quite sure what to expect. The tostada and burrito were scrumptious with lots of fresh fillings and cilantro the way we like it. Staff were friendly and seemed to love the place as much as we did, one...More

We enjoy take away and eating at Spanglish for lunch. Great food and historic setting in The Commons. Next to Higher Grounds coffee and Left Foot Charlie winery. All of the food we’ve had has been great, with tamales being a special favorite.

Awesome guacamole and Tacos! Everything we have had there has been delicious! The chips are thin and very crispy! Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We will be back!

We ordered a beef taco, a pork tamale, chips/guacamole, and pork quesadillas. Beef taco was definitely the best and only about $3.50. Glad we tried a local place. Guacamole and tomatillo salsa seemed very fresh.

Was excited to go here based on reviews but, for me, it was just not good at all. Had the big daddy burrito. Chicken was gross and all I could taste was rice. Won't be back. Far overrated

Very busy lunch hour but service was excellent, food was hot and portions larger than expected. Cafe is small with some outside seating. Burritos and quesadillas for us; really good chips and lemonade. Definitely recommended

A delightful Mexican restaurant located in the back of the Grand Traverse Commons. Great dishes, both with meat and vegan. Everything made by hand to order.
