Some folks like to eat at the "big box restaurants." Nothing wrong with that. Food and service are about the same as the next one down the street. But if you are in the mood for a "mom & pop" place, try Little Mexico! You...More

Very mediocre food and poor service, had to get our own menus and find the waitress for the check. Honestly this is just a step above a TV dinner and the margaritas on the rocks were no better...one and done.

Staff was great, service was fast, food was authentic! Will definitely be back! Fajitas were great, enchiladas were tasty. It's exactly what you would expect from a little Mexican place!

I was looking for some place early in the morning (just past 7am) and a few of places I saw were closed for the holidays. This place was open. Never been there before. On first glance I thought the only way to get in was...More

I'm sure they aren't microwaving TV dinners in back, but honestly, I've had microwaved Mexican TV dinners as good as what I got here. Combined with the 'ambiance' and the lackluster service... yeah, I won't be back.
