Little Mexico

Just thinking the name makes my mouth water. Little Mexico. My all time favorite restaurant, and I was able to eat there today. It is such a treat to walk through the doors. I have been visiting this restaurant for 30 years. Yep, the day before I was born, 30 years ago later this week, my parents ate there. My mother has been eating at this restaurant since SHE was a little girl. It is our family's favorite place to go.

But it has a downside.

It is an hour and a half from my family home. I grew up driving an hour and a half to eat Tex Mex. My mom grew up driving an hour and a half to eat Tex Mex! Now, on any given weekend, I will pick up the phone, tell my mom to get dressed, and drive just over an hour and a half to eat Tex Mex!! Unfortunately, when Adam and I got married, we didn't wind up any closer. We settled about the same distance from the restaurant doors.

I know it sounds crazy to think we drive that far to eat and get back in the car to drive home. It doesn't just sound IS crazy! But what can I say? We are a crazy bunch of people!


  1. It must be good. Have you considered moving?! ;)

  2. That is not crazy. I do the same to eat food that's worth the drive. When we travel places, we need to try the cuisine that is famous in that place. Keep doing it!

  3. Wow - that's awesome to have that restaurant a fav. for so long. I'd travel that long for great food!
