“Can't tell a book by its cover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Don't let the outside fool you. These ladies know how to cook Mexican food. It is mostly for take-out but there are a couple of tables inside. All food there is very good and reasonably priced.

“Best Real Mexican food intown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

The beat real Mexican food in town. I go there at lest once a week. The seating is not so good so I usually order out. Everything on the menu is good. There hot sauce is homemade and very good.

“Great takeout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Located in what used to be a gas station, Celito Lindo has zero atmosphere, but the food is really good.

“Depends on who is cooking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is a resturant/store convered from a gas station. If a man is cooking, the food is wonderful. If a woman is cooking, not so much. They do have wonderful spanish rice, and good fish tacos.

“Fresh, delicious, on the cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Located in a converted gas station at the stoplight for Oak Street and US 101, the authentic Mexican dishes are made right in front of you in the tiny kitchen. Six dollar menu items will feed two people, and they can be made to-go or be enjoyed on-site. The attached convenience store will complete your meal. Get your food for a day at the beach or on the river here and support local business.
