We were late for our reservation, which we made for too many people, and the staff was extremely gracious about our mistake. Those of us who ordered meat dishes enjoyed them a great deal, and the alcohol was also excellent (margaritas, beer, sangria). Two of us who got vegetarian dishes found them a bit lackluster, but fine. (They needed more... More

At the exit to Crawfordsville from I-74, you can stop at any number of chain restaurants or you can make the short drive into the town of Crawfordsville and go to Little Mexico. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, that's what we did. The restaurant is plain from the outside but very colorful inside. Someone spent time painting all the walls, tables,... More

Truly authentic Mexican food and the decor is fabulous. I can't recommend it if you're on a budget, though.

We had an excellent lunch here while we were passing through. It offers a pretty normal menu but everything was very flavorful. The service was also very fast and efficient (probably because it wasn't super busy), and the staff was friendly. The décor was fun, too - very bright!

I ordered the Guadalajara Especial and it's amazing!!! The salsa is really good, too. Place is clean, convenient, friendly staff and quick service!! My next trip to Crawfordsville... More

We ordered guacamole for a starter - it did not taste fresh but like typical mass produced commercial guacamole. We had margaritas they were okay - average. My husband had fajitas - plentiful amount of meat and veggies with fresh flour tortillas. The beef, chicken and shrimp tasted like it had a powdered spice sprinkled on it for flavor. He... More

6 of us for lunch, a new place for us. Food was amazing especially the lava bowl. Dining room is charming and loved the decor. Prices were pretty reasonable, owners made us feel like we had been going there for years.

We have eaten here before and try to stop when traveling. The chips and salsa are the best we have had. The food is just the right heat for most people. Taste is great. A must stop.
