“wonderful casual lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

This is a great restaurant with decor to transport you down Meico way. They have an extensive menu of tex mex food and the worlds best soups. .Roxanne, the owner/chef loves soup so there are at least 4 fabulous soups offered daily Today we had a choice of spicy Mexican corn chowder, Mushroom cheddar chowder, Butternut squash,Italian tomato feta, Vegetable borscht and they were out of Curry chicken coconut lentil !

“"Interesting" Take on Mexican Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

This was recommended to us as a "Mexican" restaurant at the visitor's bureau since my sons wanted tacos for lunch. I wouldn't really consider this Mexican- the tortilla chips were the slightly stale ones that you get at concession stands with that fake cheese stuff. Very disappointing! The rice was not Mexican/Spanish rice but had a cinnamon flavor to it. I ordered a Quesadilla with chicken/cheese/potato/etc. from the vast menus of "non-traditional" quesadillas. It was okay- pretty dry. I guess I was looking for a traditional Mexican restaurant and this didn't even come close. We most likely won't be back.

“Excellent food and large portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Seems like the restaurant is in the middle if nowhere, but don't let that stop you. Lots of choices of Salads and Quesadillas. Had the cajun fish quesadilla, cobb salad and nachos. The supreme nachos are huge with a generous portion of sour cream and guacamole. Lots of leftovers for next day's lunch.

“Lost it appeal!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

When we first visited Little Tex the food was exceptional....have found that over the last year the food has not been as tasty, and the quesadillas were very soggie on the bottom. Decided to give the restaurant another try this week , but again found the food very average, except their soup. There soups are wonderful. They have even stopped their quesadillas specials for dinners and you can only order them for lunch...

Love the atmosphere of the restaurant, small and quaint.
