Visited this restaurant a couple of months ago. A cute little spot and service was good, however the food was not. Food was flavorless, very bland and not what you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. My family and I will never be back.

Little Tex is tucked away in a little building along the railway tracks. The building is old but the service and food is great. They have a great menu and prices are very reasonable. No issue with parking. Check it out--you won't be disappointed.

They had a Chicken Quesadilla Special so that is what we ordered. Unfortunately, there was not much flavour-- it had no spiciness whatsoever and was quite bland. If Mexican food is being served, I expect to get some Mexican flavours. My flour tortilla was burned around the edges which I did not appreciate. They actually charged 50 cents for the... More

Decided to give this over rated place a try. While the service was satisfactory, the food left a lot to be desired. Had their seafood enchiladas which had little seafood and lots of tomatoes and other fillers. Partner had a chicken quesadilla with little chicken in it. My side of soup I would describe as "muddy" in that you couldn't... More

I love the Mexican food here! There's a wide variety of choices, making the decision difficult. The food is fantastic! My sisters~in~law, nieces and I took my mum~in~law out for her 60th birthday. We were able to have the back portion of the restaurant to ourselves, which was especially nice with the kids along.

Had the sloppy tex burrito and was just a large awkwardly overstuffed burrito with a a lot of corn and little flavour or chicken. Came with a nice salad though. We ordered chips and salsa and both tasted store bought. Service was bad, but restaurant was busy. Woman's washroom is without an outer door and that seems weird. Was excited... More
