We placed an order to go for my mom's birthday, and after arriving to her house realized why 3 orders of food felt so lightweight - those 3 orders would barely equal one normal serving plate. The taco was small and barely filled with meat, and the rice & beans maybe were 1/4 cup. We should have looked at it... More

There are as many varieties of "Mexican" cuisine as there are of "American" cuisine. If you like Tex-Mex or boarder food, this isn't the place for you. If you like fresh flavors, variety in foods, succulent shrimp, and smiling service in the midst of original (as well as traditional) artwork, Little Bit of Mexico is the place for you.

Friendly service and fast to the table, but we walked way with the overall impression that the food was freshly prepared anyway. The good news is that they actually serve a homemade mole; the bad is that it is a bit unrefined and barbeque sauce-styled.

Food was very good, I have eaten at almost every Mexican place in the area and it is one of the better ones for flavor. Nice quiet atmosphere and service was very friendly. The prices were average so no too expensive.

My wife and I heard this was a good spot and looked forward to our meal. Sorry to say, it wasn't up to par. The chips are greasy, the bean dip has a good flavor but is runny, while most restaurants serve a thicker dip. My wife's tostada was served on a rancid tortilla. Worse, the rice had been burned....

How one rates/reviews ethnic or regional food depends experience. E.g., if you are accustomed to SE, Southern California, or Tex-Mex Mexican food, this restaurant won't meet your expections. The recipes here are from the heartland of Mexico, a very different region from northern Mexico. When you pass thru the nondescript front, you enter into a bright, warm, richly decorated family...

Love this little restaurant. The food is always of a consistently high standard- not your average Mexican restaurant. They use different spices that sets their dishes apart. The lunch chicken enchilada dish is my all time favorite!

With a significant Hispanic population, Idaho Falls has a nice array of Mexican restaurants ranging from the authentic to the Gringos doing a poor to decent job. If you want authentic Mexican food prepared by an authentic Mexican family then Little Bit of Mexico should be your destination. This is a multigenerational family business with most of the food prepared... More

This restaurant is average. The food is okay (sometimes good) and the people and atmosphere is nice, but in my opinion it is not even close to the "best" Mexican restaurant in Idaho Falls, like many reviewers claimed. I came here with my partner expecting something wonderful based on the rave reviews. We were both disappointed. Don't expect something that... More
