Visited on a Saturday to the 28th street location, I was in the mood for Mexican food and the wait at Lindos was an hour for our group of six. We walked in here and were seated immediately.

The atmosphere here is a little half hazardous and confusing! You walk in and it's hard to figure out what to do. Do you seat yourself or wait? Do you go up to the counter to order or do they come to you. Do you get your own drink refills or do they do it. Most places these questions are... More
