Our Story

Where it all began

Little Mexico Palestine started on the Court House Square in 1967. We moved to West Oak in 1968 and in 1987 moved to our current location at 2025 West Oak. Little Mexico is Family Owned and Operated. Current Owners, Brandon and Melanie Seat took over for Gary and Phyllis Seat after the fire in 2009 and Little Mexico is still going strong today as one of the most popular destinations for Mexican Food in all of East Texas.

"We believe in families serving families."
Brandon Seat
