Loved the warm thick chips and salsa. I base ALL my Mexican restaurant reviews on how good or bad the salsa is. Their's is really good! I had the Grilled Chicken taco salad, very tender chicken fresh lettuce, etc Husband had the Chicken Quesadilla and it was good as well. The Margarita's are a Little over priced but very tasty...

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, decided to give it a try. So glad we did. We were seated immediately, got a couple of great frozen margaritas. Then came guacamole which my husband pronounced to be good. I wound up with the tortilla soup and an appetizer size enchilada. My husband had a taco, a chili relleno and an... More

We ordered crab nachos ten minutes later she comes to take out order and she never did our appetizers. Nachos were ok. Pork chunks were all fat so I can't say how they tasted. Waitress didn't seem like she cared at all!

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. It is served with black beans and rice and grilled bananas, and fresh lime slices for zest. Of course chips and salsa are always served in advance of your meal,... More

Cielito Lindo has their beginning in the spring of 1985 when we opened our first restaurant in Pompano Beach. Then, as now, each dish was faithfully created from favorite recipes passed down from generation to generation and brought with us from Mexico. Over the years, we have taken great pride in offering our guests fine foods of Mexico prepared and served with dedication to the best of Mexico's traditions. New dishes are constantly bring created and adapted for your enjoyment and dining pleasure. Our popular "Especialidades de la Casa" reflects the high quality long associated with Cielito Lindo Restaurants, and now seafood dishes, "Pescado del Mar," compliment our new Cielito Lindo Restaurants. Welcome to Cielito Lindo's. Enjoy your visit, and come again soon.
