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!!!

I was with a group of friends walking through this neighborhood looking for a dinner spot. There are lots to choose from. We picked Little Tijuana's and we weren't disappointed. There's a vibe about this place that's kinda cool and funky. It starts with the...More

I've been going to Little T's for over 20 years and unfortunately the last 4 years has seen their food and service go down hill. They're motto is "No whining!" That means you need to sit down, order exactly what's on the menu with NO...More

I hope you are reading this in time. Walk out- quickly! I have never had worse food or service in all of Minneapolis. We went with a group of 10 of us. The waiter was terrible. He was forgetful, didn't refill our drinks, took our...More

We were invited there by two friends for a mid-day meal/lunch. They raved about it. We thought it was mediocre. Didn't care for their homemade chips, or salsa. Or much for their food.

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

Really not worth the high prices!!! Avoid this restaurant! It's got a grimy funky character, but $30 for two small basic meals?? 3 little decent enchiladas and a much smaller-than-chipotle marginal quality burrito ran our bill at $26+tip. Rice&beans "side" for the enchilada "meal" was...More

I have been there several times, and the food never disappoints. Today we enjoyed the happy hour supreme beef nachos plus draft Pacifica. For our entrees we had the enchilada style chicken burrito, steak tacos, as well as a chocolate malt. The food was awesome--great...More

If you are on a low budget, this ia place to go. It's cheap, food is abundant (at least, it used to be), but it's rather tasteless and the choices are neither extensive nor creative. Overall, young folks go there more for the atmosphere (awfully...More
