I grew up eating here with my family and still eat here when I can. It’s consistently delicious Tex-mex, with food served piping hot. The chips and salsa are always fresh and the food is served quickly. The cheese enchiladas are my favorite.

We were on our way through Palestine on the way to Fairfield & stopped at a random place to eat. This place was a hit! Loved the food & the enchiladas were CHEEEEEESY! Delicious! 10/10 would eat here again.

The first time I ate at little Mexico it was 1970, And I believe the most expensive meal on the menu was $ 2.15, well that's changed a little in 49 years but the great tasting food has not. I have eaten here hundreds of...times over the years, some taste the same as they did in 1970 like the Guacamole (still the best I've ever had) and some things have actually gotten better (The Best Mexican Rice in the World) I usually get the Special dinner with one Beef and one cheese enchiladas instead of two cheese, unlike some restaurants they don't charge extra for a substitute like that. Great Atmosphere. Great Service. Great Food. at a reasonable price. It don't get better than this. Don't let the crowd fool you, sometimes it looks like an hour wait but I don't think we have ever waited over 20 or 25 minuets at their busiest, they have an amazing staff that take their jobs seriously, Wow can these guys bus tables. Truly a great dining experience, for lunch or dinner. Just remember Little Mexico does not serve alcohol.More

Ate at little Mexico back in July 2019, making it my 2nd visi total. My first time here was back in April of 2018. This 2nd visit was because of my friends. I didn't really like the food, but I liked the nachos and salsa....I don't think I would go back anytime soon. The servers were very friendly.More

We had lunch at Little Mexico and it was fantastic. The restaurant is clean and the service is excellent. I ordered the Charos Dinner that includes a Chalupa, Crispy Beef Taco, Guacamole, and a CCQ. My Wife ordered the Lunch #3 with cheese enchiladas and...my daughter ordered Cheese Quesadilla. We also ordered the Jot Cheese Dip. This meal was great. I give this restaurant my highest recommendation. Try it!More

Bypass this location to eat and find another Mexican restaurant. The interior was drab and dark, and our food was bland. Staff were very friendly but unfortunately the other issues were too glaring to ignore.

Food is consistent, hot, and quickly served. Others could learn from Little Mexico by paying attention to details such as jars of freshly made salsa on each table and soaking their beans overnight before preparing them. Outstanding service - I try to get Diana or...Carol but all are great. Hometown feel. Great, friendly hostess (Marlene) and managers (usually Richard or Brandon). Can’t go wrong with anything but their fajita quesadillas are the best I’ve eaten. Tacos are stuffed with meat and veggies.More

My wife and I both got sick within hours of eating lunch here. It was the first day of a three day driving trip from Austin to the east coast. We stopped there based on the good reviews, but were sick for a week due...to probable food poisoning.More

Stopped here on my road trip. Not bad at all. Small, but small on purpose. Tacos were crispy and filling. The enchiladas were full and tasty. A good pit stop.
