This restaurant is at an eye catching location -- while on break after shopping for a car my husband and I stopped for lunch at Cielito Lindo, we were disappointed with this restaurant. 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.

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.
