My family and I ate here twice during our visit to Gainesville. The food is delicious and the service is fantastic! The salsa is spicy hot and fresh. Fajitas are our favorite. Will be back again.

I have been eating here for 10 years. The name is now Linda Vista but the food and service haven't changed. My 2 favorites are the Taco Salad and the Carnitas. Whether it be lunch or dinner, the food is fast and fresh. Stop by and enjoy.

Best Mexican food around town. The prices are very good for your pocket. Everything was freshly done and the good was not overly season. They use fresh produce

I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try something new, I was torn between scallop tacos and a scallop burrito our waitress recommended the scallop burrito and it was AMAZING! Plate long and loaded with scallops, cheese, rice and fresh avocado. I can't wait to stop here on my next trip through Gainesville.

We have visited this restaurant many times and always take out-of-town friends there to eat. It is a small, family-owned restaurant that has never disappointed us. It is very affordable and quite popular with families. A great place for lunch or dinner (closed Mondays).

I am guessing that the name has changed and that is why I was not able to find it. This restaurant has delicious and inexpensive Mexican food. The staff was extremely friendly. They set plenty of chips and salsa they were a little slow on the refills and checking with the table as we were missing a couple of items... More

Loved the atmosphere and the food was great as well- the singers that walked around and sang at your table - added bonus

This restaurant has delicious and inexpensive Mexican food. The staff are very friendly. If you are looking for good Mexican food, and are looking for a great environment, this is the place to go. On another note, this restaurant has been recently changed its name to Linda Vista. The cheese dip is superb!!!
