Quick service, fun waitress, okay food. A little off the beaten path if you are not familiar with the location.

I stopped by here for a quick lunch not sure what to expect at first. My server was wonderful, she took great care of me. The chips were a little salty but the salsa was delicious. I ordered a cheese enchilada. The enchilada sauce was good. I will definitely be back.

Absolutely terrible food. I'm not even going to call it Mexican, because the only resemblance is that they use something approximating taco shells. The "taco" I had here was horrific: greasy, overcooked meat smothered in--I'm not kidding--ketchup. I made it through two bites, and my wife did the same with whatever her dish was. Then we looked into each other's... More

We had a group of 7 of us, it was a busy night, didn't have too long of a wait. They brought us plenty of chips/salsa to cover us until our order was delivered. Good size portions and everyone enjoyed their meal, and service was excellent, even with other large groups also being in.

WARNING!!!*KEEP OUT** I elected 1 Star as I can't leave a comment unless I do. I have never left a review online about a restaurant but I feel compelled to warn the general public about this place- that's how bad it was. But to be honest this place gets a -5! My family and I eat out quite often and... More

Little Mexico, for me, falls into the classic Tex-Mex category. The place is deceptively large, subdivided into four quadrants. Most any time we have gone there, the place fills up. They have the nice variety of enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, salads, and sides. If you are sort of hungry, order the regular not the supreme. Mexican food is very personal and... More

Attempting to get great Mexican food in Central Nebraska is always a chancy endeavor. The attempt is usually unsatisfying ... and this was no exception. The food was good, but not very flavorful nor spicy. The sauces and flavors would mirror the typical Midwestern tastes. The wait staff was fast and friendly. The beer was cold, There may be a...

I stopped here for lunch this last Friday! They were swamped with customers, and only had two waitresses working. The wait staff was running trying to keep up. Originally I was told that it would be a ten to 15 min wait, so I opted to sit in the bar. The food was fresh and hot. Maybe a little too... More

Well if you like GREAT grilled beef ribeye steak then you will enjoy this unique Carne Barrada Supreme, don't forget to ask for a side of jalapeño peppers! This dish will fill you up at a reasonable price and you will be asking for a return visit when you are paying! The service is fast and the free chips and... More

When my husband gets hungry for a good bowl of green chili we head on over to Little Mexico. It is about the best there is in town for that item. The tacos, burritos are good too. They are making wonderful guacamole right now. I recommend it for sure!
