Visit anytime we are in Gainesville. Service was a little ragged this time. Had to wait an excessive amount of time once we had placed the order. The enchiladas suezas were excellent though. Still the best TexMex around the area.

The new name of the restaurant is Linda Vista, yet it is the same food. Nothing spectacular, but always safe, especially if you have someone in your party who is not a Mexican food fan. Ask for the house hot sauce- one way of adding a zing to the otherwise pretty bland food.

My wife and I like to go out to eat at Mexico Lindo when we get the chance. The food is outstanding, and the service is always with a smile. The portions of food are really large, and the drinks are always cold. I'd recommend Mexico Lindo to anyone looking for Mexican food in Gainesville.

Mexico Lindo or Linda Vista as it is now called is a local family owned restaurant. Hands down the best Mexican food in town. Both the Carnitas and Fajitas are top notch. Good house margaritas and beer specials. There are TVs throughout the restaurant for viewing sports without detracting from the nice authentic decor. This restaurant is always a favorite... More

Of the half-dozen Mexican restaurants in Gainesville we have been to, Mexico Lindo has been a consistent top performer in terms of flavor and authenticity, comparable to locally run places in the SW Texas dessert...until this time. The service, as usual, was fast, friendly and efficient. The warm chips and salsa arrived within a minute of sitting down. There was... More

The chicken fajitas on the lunch menu were excellent, and they were nicely presented. These were far better with a comparable quantity of food than what we recently had at another restaurant for $15. We will go back again and certainly have recommended this wonderfully decorated restaurant to others!

I have been to most Mexican restaurants in Gainesville and Mexico Lindo has a unique combination of quality, authenticity, and price that just might make it the best! The food was excellent. I specifically had the delicious Mexican stew. The atmosphere is a little touristy but nice. It seems fairly authentic. On top of it all, the price was very... More

The man who cooked at Mexico Lindo bought the business and is still cooking there. The food and service are still the same as when Mexico Lindo, just under a new name--Linda Vista. Been eating there of and on for lunch or dinner for about 5 years and always had good food. I think it is by far the best... More

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!
