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

It was Sunday night. Little Mexico was open. It was about the only restaurant open in Big Stone Gap It is near the Comfort Inn. (Although the address in trip advisor is wrong) We were served chips and salsa ordered Margaritas. I had the 7 combination. Chicken enchilada, chile relleno, beans and rice. Very good. My husband had chicken fajitas.... 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!

Pretty good service and about average to better TexMex food. Probably the best place for supper in Big Stone Gap.

The place to be on Friday Night. Extremely busy! Very good authentic Mexican food, chips and salsa good, all item including drink done very well. Service was good considering how busy they were. Recommended by John Cubine at Jessie Lea Campground.

Like everyone who lives or works in Big Stone, I've eaten here for years. It's usually lunchtime when I'm there, but is a great place to run to for lunch, especially if you and your co-workers have a little extra time to spare. It's a great place to linger and talk. I've tried several things, but usually order lunch fajitas... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. the staff is always there to take your order to give you drink refills and the food I think is GREAT. I have been going there for several years and it is good food for a good price.

Little Mexico is the best Mexican restaurant in Big Stone Gap. If you are from BSG you get the joke. Seriously, I enjoyed our meal: Fajitas for Two, with steak chicken and shrimp plus all the usual fajitas trimmings. Perhaps the fajita meat and grilled vegetables were just a little too oily for my spouse, but she doesn't really like... More
