This is a rather large Mexican restaurant, however we've only been there at lunch time, and it's rarely busy. That being said, they have great food. The enchiladas and tacos are great. That's the thing I use to judge a good Mexican restaurant....it has to have good basic food, before I'll even try other items in the menu. The service... More

The service was bad. We were seated quickly, there were only two other people there, and then we waited for menus while the waiter chatted with the cashier, When he finally decided to take our order, he was not friendly at all.

HUGE margarita.....delicious! The food was great and they serve some of the best salsa and chips prior to the meal. Wait staff is friendly and attentive. A most pleasant dinner.

My sister and I were looking for a good Mexican food restaurant in Brenham when we found this place. There is a lot of construction going on there, so we actually had to LOOK for the restaurant. Boy, was it worth the time! Great service, very clean, wonderful food. Food was hot when served and salad items were cold. We... More

The first time there were 3 of us, all familiar with Houston and Austin food. This had NONE of the traditional food seasonings. The second time I went was several months later, to revisit and try a different meal.Nope! There are others in town with MUCH better flavor. I even tried the one in Bellville. Double nope!!

To be fair, we dined at Cielito Lindo one time and were very disappointed with the food. Service was trying but food was lacking and no one there knew how to make a margarita correctly. Friends have dined there recently and say that nothing has changed.

We are from South Tx and eat Mexican all the time, but this was some different stuff. The tacos and chapulas werre a tostada shell...turned up for tacos and turned over for chapulas. It made a weird looking chalupa. Lots of fresh salad tho. It was ok, clean too

We have a Cielito Lindo close to home and the decor and food are the same. Good, dependable Tex-Mex. my husband had a dish that had bacon wrapped shrimp with a sliver of a pepper inside the bacon. Next time-no cheese enchiladas for me. I'm ordering that dish!
