Still Here After All these Years

We were using a friends co-op on 28th and 3rd for a weekend and on the first evening we decided to stroll down 2nd Ave to see what was what and where we'd eat. I was very surprised when I saw the sign for this place as I had eaten here in the 70s and didn't expect to find it... read more

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in New York City and it is highly recommended not only for the food but for the service. The food can be tailored to your taste so if you want mild or spicy you have a choice.

Our daughter lives in NYC and goes to this restaurant frequently. We finally got to experience it for ourselves last night. It's not a huge place but very nice atmosphere. I know lots of places serve chips and salsa but this was homemade and delicious to start our evening! I don't have the exact names of the dishes but I... More

I recently visited Mexico Lindon with friends for dinner. The food was delicious, the staff extremely friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. It had always been a favorite of mine, but I hadn't visited it in a long time so it was nice to return and see that little had changed. I plan to return soon... More

Mexico Lindo has a nice setting and the menu is quite varied. The service is very good and curteous however the food leaves a lot to be desired. The food appearance was good but not the flavor. Most of the dishes we tried were a bit bland and in some cases seemed like the ingredients were not very fresh.

This family-run restaurant serves the best Mexican dishes I have ever had. The chef excelled in balancing the various herbs and spices, and has chosen the best ingredients. I cannot comment on their wine list, because I enjoyed a delicious margarita from a variety of margaritas which include fruity ones.

Took the kids ice skating in central park. We were looking for a place on the way home and my wife said this looks good. We went in and the the atmosphere was great. We were graciously greeted by the staff and sat at a cozy table by the window. Guacamole was fresh and had vibrant flavors. I ordered a... More

While Kips Bay is not a great neighborhood for food, Mexico Lindo takes it up a bit. My teenagers like it alot. The house hot sauce is very Hot. Service was ok--but we were rushing and they got us out when we needed.

This small neighborhood Mexican restaurant is on 2nd Ave near 25th St. The service was pleasant, the ambiance good and the food was tasty and creatively served. A bit pricey for folks on a budget.

Food was good. Nice ambiance. Friendly staff. But for the price we were expecting better food. Not as good as other smaller Mexican places we have in the neighborhood.
