We were thoroughly surprised to find great Mexican food and excellent service in this otherwise unremarkable strip mall location. The food was excellent, and the ~7 piece mariachi band was a great treat on Tuesday nights! Don't miss the 2-for-1 margarita specials!

Best Mexican, we moved to GA but when going to FL always stop here. It is 3 minutes off I75. The enchiladas suiza steak is the best Mexican ever.

The restaurant is now called Linda Vista. The menu and the staff are still the same. This is by far the best Mexican food in Gainesville. The staff is always super friendly. Some of my favorites from the menu are: Enchiladas Suizas, Mexican Stew, Steak Acapulco, Quesadilla Campanchena, Burrito grande, Chicken Morellia and Pork Carnitas. You really cannot go wrong...

The price is right, the decor lively, the sangria pleasant, but the food just doesn't measure up to my Southwestern-bred taste buds. People of all ages were obviously enjoying themselves, so it must be me. The best part of the meal was the salsa and chips. The Rellenos and the special enchillada plate were merely acceptable. Then I ordered the... More

We ate at "Linda Vista" in late May with friends. We had been there a month earlier while shopping in Gainesville and were very impressed. We decided to take some friends there hoping it would be just as good...well, all four of us thought it was excellent. Great Mexican decor, extremely clean and a awesome waiter named, Manuel...so friendly and... More

My son and I have been going to Linda Vista previously Mexico Linda for years. The staff are wonderful and I call most by their names I frequent so many times. Just live around the corner. Their hard shell tacos are great, meat or chicken and their taco salads are huge, filling and yummy. They make me a special margarita... More

In Gainesville for college orientation.and found this restaurant in TA. The name has changed to Lindo Viejo. Although it is a little out of town based on reviews we decided to try it. We were very happy with our lunch. We enjoy "Mexican food" and the items we had at Lindo Viejo were as good as we've had north of... More

Now called Lindo Viejo, this restaurant is the closest to Tex-Mex that we have found in the North Florida area. The cheeses they use are not quite the same, but are very good. We try to schedule a visit anytime we are in the area. Sometimes we'll even drive from the Ocala area just to eat here.

I recently moved to this side of town and this was the first place we got take out from. Since then we have eaten there every week almost. They consistently have food ready on time or early and are very nice/polite as well as efficient. They blaze through with service which you rarely see as good as this.

When you can have 2 very delicious appetizers, 4 main courses for 4 adults that tasted very good and include 2 pitchers of beer and come in under $70, you have a recipe for success! The only complaint was the regular chip dip, they bring out, definitely ask for the hot version. (Its hotter, but doesn't taste like dressed up... More
