Pretty good service and about average to better TexMex food. Probably the best place for supper in Big Stone Gap.

The place to be on Friday Night. Extremely busy! Very good authentic Mexican food, chips and salsa good, all item including drink done very well. Service was good considering how busy they were. Recommended by John Cubine at Jessie Lea Campground.

Like everyone who lives or works in Big Stone, I've eaten here for years. It's usually lunchtime when I'm there, but is a great place to run to for lunch, especially if you and your co-workers have a little extra time to spare. It's a great place to linger and talk. I've tried several things, but usually order lunch fajitas... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. the staff is always there to take your order to give you drink refills and the food I think is GREAT. I have been going there for several years and it is good food for a good price.

Little Mexico is the best Mexican restaurant in Big Stone Gap. If you are from BSG you get the joke. Seriously, I enjoyed our meal: Fajitas for Two, with steak chicken and shrimp plus all the usual fajitas trimmings. Perhaps the fajita meat and grilled vegetables were just a little too oily for my spouse, but she doesn't really like... More

The food is authentic, the service is excellent and quick, the atmosphere is casual. It's not a five star restaurant but it's hard to beat. The prices are reasonable, the food is great and I can't say enough about the service. If you are craving Mexican food and are in the area then this is the place to go.

Little Mexico is located in a small Southwestern Virginia town named Big Stone Gap, and it really does have true authentic Mexican food! We've tried Mexican cuisine in several other cities/states and haven't found anything that compares to Little Mexico. Their fajitas, quesadillas, enchiladas, chimichangas and burritos are the BEST and you can't beat their service. The servers are very... More

We had better Mexican here than in our Larger city of Spokane, Washington. We had 19 people in our party. They seated us immediately in private corner in the back. Chips and salsa were brought out continuously, servers were attentive, and they accommodated our needs. The food was generous, hot and very good. We were very pleased. We had heard... More

We recently ate lunch while visiting and found the service a little less attentive than other Mexican restaurants. The prices were good and we enjoyed our food. The salsa was more chunky than we like. A small matter, the menu stated sliced avocado w the shrimp dish I ordered but it turned out to be a small serving of guacamole.... More
