If you like great Mexican food and dynamite margueritas, this is your kind of place. We enjoyed some perfect margueritas at the bar as we waited briefly for our table. They were so good, we ordered a pitcher of them with our meal. We started with appetizers of ceviche and the quesadilla de harina and they were delicious. Our entrees... More

To be fair, my mother lives across the street so this is often our go to restaurant when we are looking to dine out. This was the first time we went for brunch, however, and I was impressed by the generous portions and the fact that the lunch specials were modestly priced. The total came out to under for $40...

This has been one of my parents favorite Mexican restaurant for at least 20 years (maybe more). I was in NY last week, and we ate there. It is still an excellent restaurant, with very authentic food, and the best Sangria you can find in NYC. Great Chicken MOLE and Brisket Fajitas. Very festive too...

We took the family and they had something for all of us. Steak with guacamole and a chicken enchilada on the side? Delicious! A "gringo" menu had tacos and quesadillas for the kids, and even a pitcher of a rum concoction that rounded out a perfect meal. Highly recommended!

Recommended to us by our friendly girl on the hotel desk, we had a great evening on the last night of our stay in NYC. Nice table in the window and we were looked after by all the staff and the manager. As a lot of the reviews state the fact it has been there for 40yrs says a lot!... More

Mexico Lindo has been around for decades -- and in Manhattan that says a lot! The food is consistently very good, the margaritas and sangria are excellent, and the place always is crowded. It's the only Mexican restaurant for miles around, and it draws clientele from all over, as well. I can recommend everything on their menu -- I've eaten... More
