I love Mexican food and this place is one of my favorites. Food is great, very authentic. Drinks are good and the atmosphere is nice. It is a family friendly neighborhood restaurant. Try the Mole California.

Mexico Lindo is one of my favorite restaurants in Melrose. It's very popular with the locals; it's always busy! The service is excellent and the waiters are very friendly. It's got a great festive atmosphere. The Margarita's hit the spot and the food is hot, delicious and of good value. if you bring the kids, they offer the regular chips... More

I don't know what happened but that rich flavor that we loved so much that used to have passion and love with each bite is gone .... More

Recently went there for the first time after hearing good things about it . We had a party of five on a Friday night . The staff was friendly while we had a 25 min wait. Drinks at the bar were very good. Once we were seated at the table we enjoyed chips and salsa. Each one of us was... More

My wife and I stopped in Mexico Lindo, after our tire burst and we had our car towed to Montvale Tire down the street (whom I recommend - they treated us nice, were quick, and did a good job). Anyway, while waiting for our car to be serviced, we walked downtown, which in Melrose is lined with different businesses and... More

If you are not Mexican the food is good and sufficient. The flavors are not authentic Mexican food, it's sad because I thought I could be a good place. The red mole with chicken is sour and dry, it is a bad combination, the salad and beans in this option aren't good. The Pastor tacos are more fried meat, it's... More

Hit or miss...down to the service and food. It really depends on the mood of the staff. Buttt...I do love this place even with 3 stars...it's in downtown and near yoga...but it's inconsistencies are a lot to overlook.

Great place to go eat and hang out with family and friends. Most dishes are delicious. Portion are good size and they also provide a kids menu. Great atmosphere, the decoration takes me back to my Mexico, excellent service. Weekends gets busy and sometimes a 20 min waiting and they have a nice outdoor deck for warmer weather. The service...
