Little Mexico has the best Mexican food in Palestine, TX and very well could be in any of the surrounding towns and local area. It turns 50 years old in 2017 so that alone should tell ya just how good the food is and has been for many years now. There Hot sauce has a little kick to it that... More

We eat at Little Mexico at least once a week, usually in the evening. Food is always great. Quick service and friendly staff. Love the cheese dip and guacamole.

My aunt use to take us here everytime we stayed the night with her. It was always great food and the waitresses were so friendly. So I decided to go there after I finished my errands. I was seated quickly and greeted by my waitress. She brought me my drink and free chops and salsa. The food was cooked quickly... More

Needing my Tex-Mex fix, we headed to Palestine to try Little Mexico. On arrival, the place looked nice. We were greeted with a smile and seated. The place is nice and roomy inside. The wait staff all appeared to be attentive and helpful. Overall, I would say the food was average. The salsa was pretty mild. As this was my... More

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!
