The best food and waiting staff. I only had one issue with the staff in 7 years of eating there. It would be nice if they served margaritas, but they don't. The Matador is my favorite dinner, but make sure you are hungry. Make sure you try a praline to go. They are at the check out. Have fun!

It is not gourmet fare but it is tasty and served fast. The restaurant has an Old Mexico vibe and was very clean. Had one of their lunch specialties, generous servings. Will go back and recommend.

Took three of our Grandkids there on a Saturday night, had to wait about fifteen minutes. Service was excellent. Had the sour cream Chicken enchiladas. Very good. This restaurant is not really Tex Mex, but more of the Bland Mexican style, which I love, growing up in West Texas. Highly recommend.

Sour cream burrito was tasty. Refried beans tasted canned. Busy lunch hour but the wait staff handled it very well. A favorite with the locals.

Title says it all. Not the best nor the worst. Always consistent great service no bar. Seems that all the food taste the same. Definitely not unique very average. Sweet tea is very good.

When we pass thru palestine, we always make sure we stop here. Food is very good. My favorites are the supreme nachos and the hot sauce. Food is reasonably priced.

Have been to Little Mexico about 3-4 times over the past three years. The food is not great, and we will probably return to try other dishes, but the cheese enchilada lacks something. Rather tasteless and salty in my opinion, with a lot of grease. The tacos are much better. Hot sauce is a little bland. The service has been... More
