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.

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.

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
