Real Mexican food

This is the real deal, not like all the other "Mexican" restaurants in town, this is where the "Mexicans" go when they don't want to cook at home.

This is a little Mexican place near downtown. I felt the food was very greasy and only so so. Bring cash because they do not take anything else.

The food is good, especially in burlington but in America when food is given to you that you haven't ordered ie chips and salsa it is assumed it is complimentary especially at a Mexican restaurant. I couldn't understand why our lunch bill was so expensive and was told there is a charge for chips and salsa. It was nowhere on... More

The food is good and the owners are very friendly. Nice atmosphere. Very reasonable price. Many people you will see there every week. Many repeat customers, guess that says a lot too.

I am originally from Burlington, so when I come to visit, I like to eat at the local places. I have eaten here several times with my family and I enjoy the food most of the time. The service has always been bad. They only take cash, they only serve soda in bottles or cans, the initial chips and salsa... More

After researching Lindo Mexico, I assumed I was in for a treat. Having (at the time) the best ratings for mexican food in Burlington, I had hoped that my stay here at Lindo would be wonderful. Unfortunately my experience was the exact opposite. For starters, the chips were incredibly hard. Despite this, I just assumed that was their style and... More

Little Mexican restaurant off the beaten path. But the food was fabulous, making it well worth the effort to find this place. Don't be put off by the exterior of the building. Just remember the meal will be worth it.

We were excited to try it out after reading the reviews. We arrived and found a hand-written sign on the door saying they were on vacation after July 1.
