Each time we visit Cielito Lindo, I think I will order something else, but the shredded pork with onions is so moist and delicious, I keep going back for that.

This is another local restaurant that we've been going to for years. Wonderful service and the food is great. We always start with the crab nachos and then move on to the main menu. Never been disappointed. If you're in the area, go for it.

This is a great small local Mexican place. The food is consistently delicious! Frozen drinks could be a little better but it's a nice environment and good food!

Took a date there because I heard the food was great. Our waitress immediately delivered homemade Mexican chips with mild and hot sauce. My date had a Chicken Fajita and I had a shredded beef Chimichanga. All the food tasted authentic (I've been all over Mexico and know) and great. The place also had a very nice Mexican atmosphere.
