Peso bar, patton park, detroit

Our Approach

Peso is a Mexican eatery with traditional Mexican street food with a modern twist. We will mainly concentrate on Tortas, California style burritos and Plato abierto, using traditional old family recipes incorporating fresh ingredients with new styles.

Our Story

Our owners were born and raised in Southwest Detroit and from birth to building and operating their businesses there, graduating from Western International High School. The city has always been a cornerstone of their lives; truly speaking, it is the only place they call home. Our team was formed in 2018 on another venture called "Toma Detroit". While trying to fulfill our dream of opening our first Bar/Restaurant, we met Jacques.

At first Jacques was merely a mentor, a person trying to give our team the boost we needed to take the risks needed to make this project happen. In the picture above we met as a team at Patton Park, after eating some Tortas and drinking some Micheladas on a beautiful Sunday afternoon we pitched "Peso" and here we are!
