I've always looked forward to coming home so that I can visit Little Mexico and dig into their Nachos Simple. The refried beans are just how they should be served and the combination of a mild white cheese and tortilla chips makes my mouth water to think about. Unfortunately my last visit to this staple was not what I've come... More

The food has always been pretty good at Little Mexico. It's a little pricey for the portion but still good. The past few times we've been there the service has been very poor. It seems to take forever to get anybody to take your order then once you're finished it takes forever to get your check to leave. We won't... More

Mediocre at best. Service was good, food was average. The refried beans were very runny, beef in tacos were kinda bland. Nice atmosphere. But needs to improve a little in quality of food.

I got the Burrito Maya and the chicken was like rubber. The chips and salsa were good. The staff are friendly, but I can't recommend this place based on my meal. The others in the group had better food.

I have ate here several times and never been disappointed. The fish tacos were one of my favorites. Also the portions are the right size, not to big or to small. Have tried several different dishes and have enjoyed them all. Nicely decorated and helpful staff.
