Good Mexican food in Melrose

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

A nice little spot in downtown Melrose, "The Lindo" as it is known by us Melrosian locals is a good, if not great, Mexican restaurant. It's important to know some of the little tricks about this place when you go there to get the full experience. Which, of course, I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't share with... More

This is my favorite for Mexican food except when I'm actually in Mexico. All of the favorite Mexican dishes are available and prepared to perfection, and their specialties are outstanding. My favorite is the marinated skirt steak in Mama's zucchini sauce. They also make great variety of Margaritas and have a good selection of Mexican beers. The atmosphere is truly... More

Having been there more than a few times, this place never disappointments. If it is not the smile from the hostess, the fresh chips and salsa, the many choices on the menu, the prices, etc., we leave there with a smile and a full belly. Highly recommend if in the area.

We have been here several times and have always been pleased. The margaritas are excellent. The food tends to be what passes in New England as generic Mexican but is well prepared. The service was friendly and very prompt. They have outside seating in the rear which is pleasant in good weather. The mariachi band with trumpet can be intrusive... More

This is a great place for a lunch or a family meal. They have a variety of Mexican food, though I recommend being aware of a couple of things: 1. You really DO need to tell thim if there are any allergies in your party. For example, there are peanuts in the red enchilada sauce. 2. The homemade salsa is... More
