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!

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
