The food is mediocre, stay away from the taco Tuesday 99 cent special. They are not taco's, they are a corn tortilla with some meat and onions, nothing else and not historically what a taco is known to be. Very disappointing to say the least.

Probably won't return. The wait staff was nice, but the food was lacking flavor. The tropical drinks, however, were delicious.More

I go to the Little Mexican Cafe at least 3-4 times a month. Their freshly prepared guacamole is awesome. They have really good chicken or chorizo quesadillas as well. Their frozen drinks are also good. The piña coladas and mango margaritas are my favorite. They...More

LMC has some of the best margaritas I've ever had (and I've has plenty). That is the main reason I go. The food is decent and tasty. However, I've had more outstanding Mexican thoroughfare elsewhere. The guacamole happens to be excellent, in fairness. The prices...More

The food was not as good as I had expected. Making the guacamole tableside was a nice touch though. Service was slow and the restaurant wasn't crowded.

My fiancé and I always like going here. It's authentic and very reasonably priced. Don't expect a fancy time, because it's a modest time and it has a beer (I believe), but not a liquor license. I really recommend the shrimp nachos or the Chimichangas....More
