Night owls rejoice: Little Tijuana is finally open for business...again.

After what seemed like an interminable remodeling project, the late night/cheap eats Mexican American favorite hot spot reopened its doors earlier this week. The food and the front dining room remain unchanged, but the hours are new, and now Little T's is operating with a full bar. The Hot Dish is particularly excited to try the Pablo Escobar, a tequila-based bloody Mary. 

Here's a video of owner Deborah Dickson talking about all the changes in store:

I have been waiting for 20 months for Little T's to open and I am thrilled with the bar, the nice bathrooms and the exact same nachos I order. The staff is fantastic. I understand that the hours had to change because of the addition of a full liquor license. While I was there, T's was in full revival with Margaritas and shots flowing. Check it out. You will LOVE it!


I was pretty excited when I heard this. I went there a few days after the reopening and sat in the bar area.


The food was as I remembered it, but the atmosphere on the right hand side of the restaurant, where the bar is, has completely changed. I don't like the huge televisions in there, because they distract from the atmosphere, your company, and worst, from drawing on the tables. The beer list is mediocre, and the cocktail I tried was okay but nothing special. Big ups to the staff, who were their usual friendly selves. (maybe a little TOO friendly at times)


It's nice that they'll serve until 2, which still makes it a pretty good late night stop, but I don't think the liquor license was worth it. Before the remodeling, I liked to go to Little T's for the atmosphere and the super-nice staff. If you go, wait for a seat in the dining room instead of the bar - it hasn't changed quite as much.


Yep, I think not being open until 4AM like they used to be will really hurt them. Let's face it, the food is OK but most people look forward to going after the bars close.

I used to eat there quite often until a couple years ago when I walked in at about 830 to the place reeking of pot, which wouldn't have been bad but my food and service were terrible. And the place was dead so there was really no reason. And the socially awkward hostess walked up to my friend and grabbed her plate away without a word and she wasn't even done eating. \

^That. Little T's was the best post-bar spot in S. Minneapolis. Now it's just another bar/restaurant. :/
