Very yummy

We got chips and guac to start which was basically wontons with a minimal amount of guac- Pretty average. But our meals were great. Baja fish burrito was delicious as well as the tacos. Note: all food was pretty greasy and messy, so be prepared to get your hands dirty!!!

Yum! The food here is good and you can sit and watch it be made. The fish burritos are so good, a must try.

The burritos here are great: even the small one can fill you up, for about 40-50k. Refrained beans and meats are served steaming hot, and extras are cheap (sour cream - yum!) They also have breakfast burritos, deliver within the block, do take away and are open late for that drunken snack! Though the portion of cheese and beans fries... More

Each time we come to Nha Trang we visit the Lil Shack. While the place is so small you will almost miss it if you blink twice. But the menu has gotten larger and the taste even better. It is hard to get anything close to Mexican food in Vietnam and they do a wonderful job trying here. It is... More

I searched for this restaurant up and down the street and found its booth. I ordered two beef tacos and out come two rolled up tacos with only beef inside. No salad, no cheese, no sauce. The small chewy bits of meat inside where frozen. I was very much looking forward to Nachos and a couple tacos, thus I walked... More

Join Tippy and his all-female team at The Lil Shack for great Mexican food at great prices. The menu at the original venue is varied for the location size but for those of you wanting a greater variety please enjoy The Lil Shack at their new location in the foodcourt of the Nha Trang Centre. The menu there is quite... More

As a light dinner we found the tacos to be a delicious alternative to all the rice and noodles in the area. Perhaps a tad small for my big appetite, but reasonably priced all the same. The burritos looked like a better size for the money, but alas I had already ordered.

I was in need of break from the noodles and spring rolls after our 6 weeks now in SE Asia, we couldn't have chosen a better place to get our fix. I love Mexican food, being from Southern California I get a lot of authentic Mexican and one thing that is crucial is the tortillas. The lil shacks tortillas are... More

Like anyone else, we were hesitant to order Mexican food in Vietnam, but the food here was delicious!! It might not be 100% authentic, but it sure is close enough, especially when you're craving something different and more a taste of home. The carne asada and fish burritos really hit the spot and prices are great. We loved it so... More
