Good food

This is a very homey little place that serves tasty food.
Try the cornbread (if there is any left!) and the Three Amigos special - one chicken, one cheese and one beef enchilada, all with different sauces and spiced according to your request. The chorizo quesadilla is yummy. And Broken Sombrero is delicious.

For the reviewer who said the Broken Sombrero was just soggy tortilla chips... Broken Sombrero is a nickname for Chilaquilas. It is indeed a common breakfast dish in Mexico consisting mostly of stale tortillas in chili sauce. The version at Little Mexico also has egg and chorizo and it is wonderful.

I would NEVER return here!

We went to this place after hearing very good things about their food. However, we were very disappointed. I order the Broken Sombrero and my friend ordered the Beef Fajita. The Broken Sombrero was basically soggy tortilla chips. Kinda gross. The Beef Fajita was a surprise - the beef pieces was cut very big and had no flavour!! This had to be the worst Beef Fajita we EVER tried! In addition, our drinks tasted very funny. The coke tasted like it was mixed with some SOAP, and my virgin strawberry daiquiri tasted very watered down and weird - again the WORST I've ever tasted.

We did NOT want to take any left-over home and would definitely not return to this place. We talked about this experience with a Mexican friend of ours and he was surprised that their served the Broken Sombrero. He explained that it's a home-style breakfast in Mexico, but not something normally served at a restaurant.

The owner recommended these dishes so highly that we felt compelled to try them. Perhaps an acquired taste.

Great spot for appies

We love this place. If your goal is margaritas and nachos, don't look anywhere else, as this is the place to go. Fresh squeezed lime margaritas at a great price. The nachos are heaped with refried beans, guacomole and a mountain of cheese. Also look for the dry pork ribs as these are better than any I've ever had in any pub.

Another hint, ask for the cornbread - its not on the menu and its not available every night but when it is you won't be dissapointed.

The main courses are decent and somewhat typical of most mexican restaurants, however its the appies we come for. If you are in the mood for a drink and some snacks, skip the pub and head to the Cantina.

okay food, not great service.

I've been to this restaurant twice now. The first time the service was better, but then they weren't as busy. Both times the food was just okay, not great. The second time I went, the service was not so awesome. One person came to ask us if we wanted anything to drink, we said water. A few minutes went by, that person got things for other people yet no water for us. Someone else came up and asked us if we wanted anything to drink. Then we got water. We didn't get our chips and salsa (which is free/included) until our meal finally came out (took a long time to come), and I asked if the chips and salsa were included. I noticed that a couple that came in after us was served their food and chips and salsa before us. A couple after us did not get chips and salsa either. Yes they were busy, but the food just isn't good enough to make me want to go back and deal with the crappy service. Our server was nice and pleasant though, no one was rude or anything.
