I went twice. Once for the 3 soft steak tacos and once for the 2 Mexican steak tacos on corn tortillas. Both meals were awesome. And the warm chips and salsa are a nice touch.

Fantastic food! The lunch menu chimichanga, burrito deluxe and full menu Carne Assada were exceptional. Big bonus for very clean bathrooms!

Usually we hit this place up for lunch. In the evening I have seen the parking lot packed full of cars and the dining room is packed. The food here is great and there are so many selections to try.

We ate here when we stopped for the night on a road trip. It was busy, but we got a table and drinks right away. Food took a little while, but it was worth any wait, because it was delicious. One of us had enchiladas...and the other had a quesadilla. It looked to be a popular place with local people. Very reasonably priced food.More

Great food, friendly staff, and food was reasonably priced. Margaritas are really good and I believe this is the special on Tuesdays. Daily specials.

My wife and I we traveling through town and saw this restaurant and decided to stop. It was one of the best Mexican restaurants that we have been to. I had chicken fajitas and my wife, beef fajitas (half orders we as large as other...restaurants full orders), the meats were flavorful and the vegetables crisp and not over cooked. We were both thoroughly satisfied with our meals. Would definitely return.More

This place was quite good. Small-town Mexican restaurants in the US tend to be pretty bad, but the cilantro in the salsa was promising. If you ask for a hotter salsa, they bring a nice, medium green sauce, and a red sauce that is quite...hot. Both are very good. I had only tacos, but the tacos de Carnitas were good and the tacos al pastor were very very good. The service was quite pleasant… Not fast, but they were very full, with almost every table occupied. So, overall, not at all a bad place to stop between Hannibal Missouri and Springfield Illinois.More

Stopped in while headed down highway 67. Went in totally blind - just saw the sign. WOW this was the best Mexican food I have had since being stationed in Texas in the Air Force MANY years ago. Spiced right, great taste, excellent meat. Service...was Great. If you are in Jacksonville this is the place to eat. I will definitely make it a stop when passing through.More

This is our family’s go to Mexican restaurant. My daughter thinks their salsa is the best and loves their chimichangas. We really enjoy the fajitas, burrito grande and Mexican tacos. Great rice and beans, too! We prefer Little Mexico over the other Mexican restaurants in...Jacksonville or Springfield.More

As a first time visitor to Jacksonville, choosing a spot for dinner was more guesswork than anything. Despite fearing that a small town Mexican restaurant would man a pile of tasteless refried beans and an overload of cheese on an otherwise tasteless plate of enchiladas,...we decided to give Little Mexico a shot - and we are glad we did. The food was actually quite excellent, with a reasonable sized portion of well prepared food. I tried the enchiladas verdes with chicken. Excellent sauce and beans that were well worth eating. Wife had fish and shrimp tacos - also excellent. Highly recommended.More

This place is one of those gas stations gems that doesn’t look like much from the outside but is busy and popular. I had the molcajete which came with steak, chicken, chorizo, shrimp, Oaxaca cheese strips, sautéed peppers, giant sautéed whole green onions, sautéed whole...jalapeño, and pineapple all in the molcajete bowl with a delicious chorizo flavored broth in the bottom. It also came with tortillas to make tacos with it as well as the usual rice, beans, chips, and salsa. A ton of food. Way more than I could eat. Loved it tho. Would go back.More
