“Good place for lunch.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

The soups are great! The place is rugged and the chairs are comfortable enough for a short quick lunch. The food is pretty good but the bison burgers are dry (ordered that on two separate occasions). I go there once in awhile and I recommend it for a quick bite to eat.

“Delicious and Friendly Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Interesting homemade soups (several to choose from but the chorzio corn chowder was the pick for me), and wonderful fresh tasty salads were perfect lunch choices. Everything looked delicious coming out of the kitchen and we will definitely go back to this local gem. Staff were fun and professional. Parking was surprisingly a bit of a challenge... it's busy!

“Great service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

I have been to Little Tex a few times in the last couple of years. The food was always great! Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed with my last visit. Maybe I made poor menu choices. My husband loved his chicken burger. We both ordered the chicken, curry lentil soup and found it to be a bit on the bland side. My Sloppy Tex Burrito was not very good. I chose Chorizo sausage as a filling. I expected that nice salty, smoky flavour from the Chorizo...but instead found the sweet chilli overpowering the rest of the contents. It was a weirdly sweet tasting meaty mess.

I would return again though. Next time maybe I'll try the Quesadilla or the Chicken burger! Our server was absolutely wonderful!
