This is the best Mexican I have ever had. Chain restaurants need not apply! Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Fish tacos are awesome and I have yet to have anything I didn't absolutely love. Lots of a la carte so order what you like.

The restaurant, which shares space with a Mexican general store (interesting in itself), has some of the typical Mexican fare such as burritos, tacos, and carne asada. The refried beans served with my dish were light and tasty, but the rice was dry and crispy. My wife had a seafood stew that was mostly liquid and little seafood. Warning: this... More

We have been eating there for at least 6 months and have yet to be disappointed. The staff is very friendly and the food is as authentic as I have had in the states. Every time I eat there I am instantly transported to the Yucatan peninsula (minus the sandy beaches and clear water of course). This is certainly my... More

We have finally found our spot for the most authentic best Mexican food in our area. Amazing food with prices you can't beat. Huge portions & food I have not been able find on any menu around since I visited Texas. On top of that the staff were all so warm & freindly our new favorite place to eat will... More

La Tiendita sells authentic Mexican food with amazing flavors. They also make home-made, authentic, wrapped on corn husks tamales fresh every Sunday. The staff is always courteous and friendly and makes you feel right at home! Whether you are stopping in the restaurant to get put fast, or hide away from everyone, this is your place!

If you want Mexican food, Elizabeth City is the place. Not because there are good mexican restaurants, only because there are a BUNCH of them. La Tiendita is surprisingly good. You wouldn't think so by looking at the location. I have taken lots of people there and they didn't even know it existed (it is a SMALL little place-probably seats... More

Elizabeth City may have a plethora of 'Mexican' restaurants, but none are of the truly authentic type. Must have passed this place for the past two years or so but never stopped in...until today! I started out with a sampling of the cheapest item on the menu for sheer evaluation purposes, and was absolutely BLOWN AWAY! Prices are on par... More

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Cheapest eats in town. Best Mexican in town. I adore their tiny little tacos. The salsa and condiment tray they bring out with the tacos. Everything. Oh and the best guacamole I've had. It's a weekly favorite.

Busy friday night and the place was jamming. Yummy smelling food aromas filled the air. Lots of great looking dishes on every table. Fast, super friendly service and our own great meal followed. Enjoyed atmosphere and meal and will defiinitely return. Met the owner and had great discussion. To top it off, prices are super reasonable.
