I was passing through Palestine and needing something to eat. I knew there was a Denny's on the south side of town, but I drove through town rather than taking to loop in hopes of finding something different. I was ALMOST to Denny's (could see the sign) when I passed Little Mexico. The parking lot was full so I made... More

The only people you see here eating are white born and raised locals. Hint. If Mexicans don't eat here. It's not rally that good. The prices are high for small portions. The Spanish rice lacks in flavor. Kinda watered down. Most of the food taste like it came from a tv dinner. Absolutely everything has gluten in it.

The best food and waiting staff. I only had one issue with the staff in 7 years of eating there. It would be nice if they served margaritas, but they don't. The Matador is my favorite dinner, but make sure you are hungry. Make sure you try a praline to go. They are at the check out. Have fun!

It is not gourmet fare but it is tasty and served fast. The restaurant has an Old Mexico vibe and was very clean. Had one of their lunch specialties, generous servings. Will go back and recommend.

Took three of our Grandkids there on a Saturday night, had to wait about fifteen minutes. Service was excellent. Had the sour cream Chicken enchiladas. Very good. This restaurant is not really Tex Mex, but more of the Bland Mexican style, which I love, growing up in West Texas. Highly recommend.

Sour cream burrito was tasty. Refried beans tasted canned. Busy lunch hour but the wait staff handled it very well. A favorite with the locals.

Title says it all. Not the best nor the worst. Always consistent great service no bar. Seems that all the food taste the same. Definitely not unique very average. Sweet tea is very good.
