Manager made it clear that they did not take reservations and that they would not honor the confirmed reservation from OpenTable. Was quite rude about it. We had to leave. We did not get to eat there. We drove over to Pancho villa got right in and got great service and had great food at that competing restaurant.

We enjoyed the food a lot. Lots of good flavor. The ceviche appetizer was amazing. The restaurant was really loud. They were under staffed but the staff their did a good job.

Little Hacienda REFUSED to honor our reservation. Said they were too busy and just seated 2 large groups!!! Now I see they have “given” Open Table notice I dined there and Open Table awarded 100 points. They should be removed from Open Table and “fined” or sanctioned for refusing a valid reservation and a party of 5.

Tableside guacamole was excellent. Queso was good in flavor but runny. Enchiladas were very good but shrimp ceviche lacked taste. Bar drinks were excellent. Restaurant fail to recognize special occasion noted on reservation.

During peak Spring Break crowds this was the only reservation available, which should have been a sign of what was to come. Worst queso I've ever had; it was basically cheese flavored water. When I asked our server I got a very dismissive "yes, this is how it's supposed to be". Main dish was ok, it was chicken with onions and peppers (ok, one slice of green pepper). It also sat on a nearby table for over 5 minutes until someone determined it was ours. We only saw our server twice when he came by to matter of factly ask us if we had cash to pay for dinner. Apparently their credit card system was down. 20 unapologetic minutes later he wrote down my card number and we left. Needless to say, I don't have plans to return.

We ate lunch here before we realized we had a coupon for a free guacamole appetizer. My husband very much enjoyed his fish tacos. My shrimp enchiladas were disappointing, but okay. They needed a more flavorful sauce.

We found this place through open table and decided to give it a try. The hostess was a bit annoying but the restaurant was bigger than expected and had a nice feel. The waiter was great. He was friendly and helpful. The food was just ok, Nothing about the food caught my attention of being really good or great. I wish I could give this restaurant a better rating but mostly due to the food, I can’t.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Branson but I was disappointed in the value of the food this time. My meal was luke warm at best. My husband said his was really good tho. My grandson got a grilled cheese from the kids menu and it was horrible. It seemed like they toasted 2 pieces of thick Texas toast, not grilled, than slapped one piece of thin cheese on it than let it sit around til it was cold. It was soggy and since the bread was so thick you could not taste the cheese. I know we came in late but that’s no excuse for not serving quality food. We ordered 2 margaritas on the rocks and had to ask where they were after our meals were brought out. The waiter came back and said they ran out and had to make more. What? You don’t know when your close to running out of margaritas!

Our experience at Little Hacienda was exceptional- our server Don was on top of it, honestly one of the best servers we’ve ever had. The food here was great- I had the Chile Relleno with beef, and my husband the chicken breast with cheese sauce. The sides were perfectly done. Honestly one of my new favorite Mexican restaurants- I cannot wait to return.

We visited Little Hacienda on 6-16 and had a wonderful experience. We decided to go back fir our last night in Branson. What a mistake. We ordered Guacamole and it did not before our meal. When I asked the waitress she informed me that she was busy and she didn’t have 5 arms. When she did come back to prepare the guacamole she made it very fast and the quality was not as good as it was two nights earlier. She furthermore told us she was new here. We asked her if it was her first day and she said does it loom like it? She said she had been there two weeks. Durning our meal she never took away any of our dirty plates when we were through. She then gave us our check and cane back to ask us if we needed anything gave us a strange look S to why we had not put our credit card on the check yet. She was very rude. The food was good but fir one if our group the food was a little cold.
