LINDA VISTA is its name now.

I had an enchilada, tostada, soft taco, and chile relleno. It was very good. The chile relleno was one of the best I've... More

We come here about once a month. We have never been disappointed. The quality and quantity of food are fantastic. This is as close to authentic Mexican food as I've found around here. The staff are always wonderful as well.

I'm a local and a regular visitor to Mexico Lindo, now called Linda Vista. On Friday and Saturday evenings it's best to be at the restaurant by 6:15 pm, after that, you might have to wait awhile depending on the size of your party. The interior is very Mexican festive, with booths and tables that can be arranged to seat... More

Our son attends UF and found this restaurant. The staff is great, the food is very good and the decor goes way beyond what you would expect! It's exactly what you see in the pictures and really adds to the dining experience!

Weather you want a quick lunch or a fun date. Linda Vista is a great place. The food is always hot and fresh and the free chips and salsa is delicious.

Very enjoyable meal, which we found to be somewhat unique in flavors and offerings. For example, with their build your own combos, the sides of rice and beans are a choice (with avocado salad) as one of your 3, 4 or 5 picks, as opposed to an automatic plate filler. Another example would be the choice of chile relleno AND... More
