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

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
