Little Mexico is in the shopping area near to Comfort Inn. Big Stone Gap doesn't have a lot of choice for eating out and this was a pleasant surprise. Very attentive waiter advised on our choices.

As soon as we walked nobody greeted us. Sign said seat yourself, server came over right away with chips and salsa took drink orders. Services was fast and the food was just average. Had to wait at register for someone to cash us out..

We stopped here on the recommendation of a friend who lives in east Tennessee. We have been to Mexico, and we recognized the landscape painted in the bench outside the front door in this strip mall. Inside, the place was obviously popular and more artwork and photos brightened the walls and ceilings. Service was brisk, the food was good. A... More

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!
