I would definitely recommend this hidden little gem. The service was fantastic, the food was delicious and the atmosphere is awesome! I will for sure be going back there. Thanx Little Tex for the great food and experience.

Great food for starters, and combination foods were very nicely done as well. Good atmosphere and friendly. Fairly quick Service as well when it was a packed house! Will definitely come here again.

I took my wife here for our first date 7 years ago, we went back for an anniversary lunch. Many things like the decor haven't changed in that time, the prices have gone up considerably, but the food a wild combination of flavours as always was excellent, although the chef may have had his eyes closed when folding the quesadilla...

I've eaten here many times before and really enjoyed the food, so when we had guests in from out of town we stopped in for lunch and were very disappointed. The place was quite full, there were only 2 servers (who were very pleasant and trying their best!), but as a result, our service was poor - our water glasses... More

Never had a bad meal here. There is a reason they are so busy. Their quesadillas are so delicious, and their various flavor combinations make it so you can have a different meal every time you go... Portions are big but you HAVE to save room for the churros!

I've been to this restaurant a few times over the last few years and each time it leaves me thinking that I with they had more variety in menu choices.The food is okay but doesn't leave me wanting more.

This is a cute little place but the food did not work for us. The menu is too large and unfocused, hence they had odd food combinations and nothing we had was well prepared. Hubby had a chicken quesadilla with soup - New England clam chowder that was unexpectedly spicy. I had a pulled pork stir fry on rice noodles... More

First visit based on a recommendation from a friend. We had out of town guests that wanted to go out for lunch. Reserved and got a nice quiet table at the back of the restaurant all to ourselves. Our server Alisha was fantastic, I could not believe how knowledgeable she was when asked for drink options she rattled them off... More

We were in Vernon for a tournament and had 12 pre-teens and 15 adults to feed lunch in about an hour. We did a pre-order the day before and they had everything ready and organized for us and we were quickly served amazing tasty and healthy food and were billed and out the door in perfect timing. The staff was... More

Three of us went for a Birthday Dinner. Large portions, great service, food was awesome! Love the decor, and the atmosphere of this hidden gem. For a Saturday night it was really quiet in there but that was not anything to worry about. Food arrived quickly and was hot. The soft taco was huge and good value. I know I... More
