We love the food at Cielito Lindo - always very good and authentic. Every item from the chips and salsa to the chicken soup to the enchiladas are excellent.

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.

Went here based on reviews for excellent margaritas and food. Margaritas were worst I have ever had - could not even finish mine. Chips were stale and salsa had no taste. Fahitas were good but that was the only part of the meal that was. Will not go back.

If it wasn't for our Florida friend, we would not have known about this place. This was our second time here. what's not to like about Mexican food. All tasted fresh. Friendly staff. Wide menu. Good drinks! Different tequilas. Enjoy - we will be back.

I guess that you can describe the restaurant as a bit tired in appearance, poorly decorated in a Mexican or Latin theme, and the usual large menu. The chips are warm and crispy, but the salsa is just so-so ... a little watery. Food is average in quality, and sufficient in quantity. The margarita had adequate tequila, as opposed to... More

The food is very good and the atmosphere conducive to conversation. The service can be a bit slow but if you aren't in a hurry, it's a great spot!

After living in Texas for many years I am spoiled when it comes to Mexican of Tex-Mex food. Frankly, since moving to South Florida, my expectations are pretty low whenever I try a new Mexican restaurant. But even with these low expectations, Cielito Lindo was disappointing. Both the wait staff and the food quality were below par. First, the chips... More

We search Trip Advisor for restaurants when on vacation. In general we have about 80% success rate with recommendations by other Trip Advisor contributors. We tend to be foodies and like our food fresh and local. I read reviews on Cielito Lindo and anticipated a great local find. Our chips and salsa were average. Our margarita was below average. I...
