As an evanston local, it's great to have this awesome little Mexican place around the corner. Friendly wait staff, good margaritas, freshly made guacamole at your table. Was very happy to bring international guests here to try their first Mexican!

Great food and service here. Guacamole made table side to how you want it, spicy, medium or mild. Great margaritas. I recommend the pork tenderloin with chorizo or the Sea scallop entree.

Little Mexican is one of our 'go-to' places. Last night we had the duck fajitas [fantastic! -- better duck than you find in many restaurants at triple the price], plus their wonderful, made-to-order guacamole. They have a great selection of excellent tequilas, and of course...More

OK, Taco Diablo has some great mexican food too. But that place is SO NOISY!!! It was a relief to return to That Little Mexican Cafe again. Great margaritas and chips. Probably still the best guacamole bar around. Entrees quite good...and if you're feeling not...More
