Local and Delish!

A really great neighborhood place in Kips Bay. Moderate prices and fresh, delicious fare. Margaritas and a good choice of Mexican beers. We loved the burritos and enchiladas stuffed with shrimp.

Back again to enjoy the wonderful summer sangria special, Rose with brandy and strawberries, peaches, and mint. Yum!! Go before the Rose runs out. Great ambiance and very good service. Tried the squash blossom quesedilla. It was very good. Then had the chicken fajita. There could be more chicken, but with the extra sides and tortilla we ordered, one entree... More

I've been lured into this restaurant by some of the positive reviews I've read. While the staff was amicable and the appetizer very tasty, the main course was subpar and pricey wrt the neighborhood but also some other Mexican restaurants I've been to. The tacos we ordered (two different kinds) looked fresh but sadly had no taste at all. Even... More

We arrived for dinner around 10pm and they could easily fit our table of 6 in. Everything we had to eat was very tasty and we were satisfied. From a vegetarian perspective it is a lot more limited than we had expected for a Mexican restaurant. Particularly no vegetarian tacos - a shame. The burrito was good. One member ordered... More

Enjoyed this place. It's a bit empty, which is a shame since the food really is quite good. But the prices are a bit high. Great drinks, we tried a bunch of different ones, and they were all done to perfection.

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... 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.
