I've been here several times and the restaurant does not disappoint. Food and service very good. I'd describe food as a mix between Mexican and Spanish with a touch of Asian thrown in. We've had the enchiladas and arroz Cama pollo. The latter is a great dish of chicken and shrimp smothered with a heaping of yellow rice with salad... More

Nothing compares to taqueria Dona Raquel in the same area with excellent and authentic food including mole. My husband ordered a passable meal and I ordered the... More

Let me start that we're from the southwest so that's the type of Mexican food we are used to. Start with the good. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. The chips were warm which is nice and we were served quickly. My husband ordered enchiladas which he said were ok. Now the not so good. I had the... More

I've been coming to cielito lindo for 23 years! I absolutely love their food and salsa! Just wish they would give the place a face-lift, it hasn't changed in all the years I've been coming and I feel it deters newcomers.
