I asked the foodies who hang out in the Kalamazoo Menu group on Facebook for Kalamazoo's best underrated restaurants and they didn't disappoint. I received more than 25 suggestions in a very short time. Let's narrow the focus and look at five of the most underrated Mexican restaurants in Kalamazoo.

There are so many choices, we don't expect you to get back to us right away. Take your time, try something new and let us know how it was and tell us your favorites that we missed in the comments.
