I am admittedly not a huge fan of this style of Mexican food -- and I am a regular to the country of Mexico, where I adore what's found on the menus. What I do like about this place is the chips and salsa, the margaritas and the flexibility to sit outside. The fact that ceviche is on the menu... More

If you want authentic Mexican food, go to the Mexico Lindo. It is great food. Their appetizers are also good. They have an outside area with tables, this is great on a summer's night!

I have lived in Melrose for many years and was surprised when a Mexican restaurant opened downtown. But, Mexico Lindo has become one of the most popular places to go in Melrose. Everything I've had (and I am not a huge fan of Mexican) has been delicious. They have lots of choices that while maintaining their Mexican base are not... More

We went there for a dinner with friends. The ambiance was good. I do not know if they have daily live music but when we went, it was a good live music. The service was ok. Overall, a good food and decent restaurant.

The restaurant has a good Mole Poblano, decent atmosphere and good value for money. The Huevo Rancheros was very good as well. Not many Mexican restaurants in Melrose and this one is a great option to have.

Location is in lovely downtown Melrose. Their food is consistently good. Authentic Mexican atmosphere and sometimes they have Mariachi band playing music. In warmer weather their back patio is open and it's covered by a roof, rain or shine, they have tent like walls to keep the area dry when it rains. They serve the chips oven-warmed, for their chips... More

Been here a bunch of times and love it. Great food, authentic and delicous. We got quesadillas and margaritas, the Ultimate was excellent The service fantastic, it was busy but the staff never missed a beat. I love the atmosphere here, deco, music and friendliness. Took my friend here and she is in love with it now too.

As any fan of Mexican food knows, what most restaurants in the Northern US serve is not what one would find in Mexico or, for that matter, in Texas or California. So, what you get here is the typical tacos, enchiladas, burritos etc, tasty, generous portions, not too pricey and quick service. The menu is large, and includes vegetarian dishes... More
