We come to Mexico Lindo quite often.Sometimes we come with our son and sometimes we come on a date. The chips and salsa are delicious. The margaritas are great. The service is very good and the entrees are wonderful. All in all this is a very pleasant place to eat.

this place has good mexican food, not too expensive, with a wide variety of dishes. On a wednesday night recently they had music singers that went around to each table. Nice touch. It can be a nice restaurant for a few people or a large group. The drinks are very good too.

This restaurant, a local favorite, has always met our expectations with its quick attentive service, extensive menu, & large portions of well-prepared food. Whether you are just there for a margarita, or a full dinner, its hard to go wrong visiting this clean, efficient, friendly spot in the middle of Main St.

For a dinner party of 6, our food arrived at different times. Mine was just soup, it arrived last and was cold. It had fresh avocados which were tasty. It was otherwise lackluster. My margarita was delicious
