I used to eat at this restaurant when it was first opened in the late '60's and '70's and in a somewhat seedy part of town, but it was then the only Mexican restaurant in Minneapolis. I found parking about 2 blocks away, and arrived...More

Little Tijuana has great food and service. Not just Mexican food, they have burgers as well. They are open everyday, even holidays. Check em out! My favorite is the chimi, enchilada style!!!

Deb's staff knows how to do fajitas! Being my husband's favorite Mexican dish, he has tried several restaurants but none compare to Lil T's. Full bar available. Open late.

We visited with friends and our little ones. It is a very dark and confusing. It's a Mexican place but the bar suggests it wants to be punk/rock n roll?! No chips and salsa on the table nor did any come when I ordered them....More
