Our large family of 15 ate dinner here and the staff was very accommodating . Everyone ordered and their orders came to the table hot and correct. The wait staff is very courteous and very attentive. There are not a lot of options to eat in Big Stone gap so you can't go wrong by choosing this place.

Little Mexico is or favorite place to eat Mexican and our favorite restaurant in our hometown. We've had Mexican food at every caliber, from here in southwest VA to LA, California, and Little Mexico is the best, hands down! If you visit our little town, you must go dine here, you will be glad you did!
