very good Mexican food. You can eat in or take out. The burritos are excellent and a good size. They also have excellent tamales.

I have been coming to Little Diner in El Paso since I was a kid - I am now approaching 50 years old. The Little Diner is an El Paso institution. My husband and I ordered Chile Rellenos and Gorditas. Sadly, my Chile Rellenos were...More
