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.

So good! Truly authentic, and I am picky about my Mexican food! Large portions for fair prices. Friendly staff. Recommend highly!

Ate here with a group of motorcycle friends last weekend (May 24th). There was a bicycle race in Burlington this day which closed almost every street around the restaurant. So if you're making a special trip you may want to check ahead. The food was good, service a little slow but there were seven of us so that may have... More

Do I rate this restaurant on a relative scale to what it is, or an absolute scale for what I like best? Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to eat at other restaurants in the area to know if I’d rate this higher due to lack of better options. The good: • Owned and operated by Mexican natives • Mexican cokes... More

Chips and salsa were great! Order a side of guacamole, well worth it. I had lunch burrito special / GF had taco salad.

Best Mexican food in S.E Iowa. My family comes here for every birthday. Food is always good. Salsa is the best. My mom always gets a bowl of it to eat like a cold soup. If 6 people go we go through at least 8 bowls of salsa. The chicken gallo is very good. Portions are a bit big. Always... More

My wife and I wanted to like Lindo Mexico. We really did. Other reviews said it was great, authentic and charming. We liked the look of the little place with its pinatas, rugs, and colors. My wife thought the chips and salsa were okay; I did not. To me, the salsa was very acidic giving flashbacks to my drinking days... More

Based on the other reviews, I was looking forward to eating at Lindo Mexico. However, I came away very disappointed. We were served a small basket of nacho chips and salsa when our menus arrived. The chips were stale. I liked the salsa, my wife did not. Even though we finished our chips almost immediately, the empty basket sat on... More
