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

My fiance and I were looking for a particular restaurant when we stumbled upon Mexico lindo in Melrose. The food was very good. We were served chips and salsa and water to start. Great service and price. Very neat atmosphere too!

This is a quaint Mexican Restaurant tucked in the heart of Melrose Square. Guests are greeted by warm tortillas and salsa as they ponder their Mexican Fare. Complete with Miriachi Band accompianment ~ this little Hole in the Wall takes you to Mexico....I enjoy the grilled shrimp ~ It's delicious. Crowded and loud on a Friday or Saturday night and...

This is a nice family run spot with a good atmosphere and fun bar scene. The family that runs it could not be nicer and they are great about supporting community activities. I think they are capable of cooking more interesting food but unfortunately they seem to feel they have to keep it lowest common denominator. I've tried a number... More

Mexico Lindo in Melrose is our favorite mexican restaurant. The food is delicious and reasonably priced, the staff is pleasant and efficient. Two nights per week they have a mariachi band who take requests and add to the experience. During the warmer months, they have a deck out back where you can eat in the fresh air. I highly recommend... More

Mexico Lindo is an attractive restaurant situated on a main street in Melrose. It's a great location with plenty of on and off street parking. There's a public lot located directly behind the restaurant. The decor is typical Mexican with vivid colors throughout. It's a cantina atmosphere featuring a large bar area and dining room and can be quite noisy... More

Everything would have been fine except i ate the appetizer myself. The meal came and it was huge, but i ate all of it as well. Feeling stuffed is an understatement. This place is easily the best mexican restaurant around, i will certainly be returning.

Can't really comment on the food, just got an appetizer, which was good - but the pitcher of margaritas were just average.
