Visited the restaurant in November 2016 for dinner. The food was just about average and the restaurant feels like it could use some improvement as it looks dated. Seasoning on the food was inadequate. Portion size was quite big though and the service was good. Not likely to revisit.

Been there several times. It's ok but doesn't taste authentic. The dishes are hit and miss. I usually order the same thing when we go and sometimes it's good and sometimes it's just ok. Staff is friendly, prices are pretty reasonable. Good for families.

This place has an extensive menu. They start you out with hot tortilla chips and salsa. The quality and the quantity of food is very good, and they make a fine margarita, either blended or on the rocks. Try the chile verde rellenos, they are excellent. The tortillas (corn or flour) are served piping hot, excellent. On some evenings you... More

Mexico Lindo in Union City use to be my favorite restaurant 10 to 15 years ago. I have not been there in at least 10 years.....but it has not got better with age. The restaurant was 90% empty on a Saturday night, and the food was nothing like it use to be. The service was not very good at all....they... More

Local cafe which we attended and enjoyed dinner at whilst in NYC. Staff knowledgable and talked us through menu options. Worth the visit if staying lower east.

This happens to be one my favorite restaurants to eat at when visiting the Union City area. My Wife and I have never been disappointed by either the quality of food or the service. They could clean up their bathrooms a bit better.

Nice staff. Food was good, but left us with cramps the next day. The establishment could use an uplift to say the least.

I've gone here multiple times and have had poor service the majority of times. The last time I went there, I had to ask for water, napkins, more chips and salsa, then finally the bill. The waitress never checked on my friends and I. I've worked in the food industry for years. I understand if things are busy, then yeah...... More

Quality Mexican fare, The food is good, good service, friendly staff. Decor is nice (I believe they just refurbished Nov-Dec - as it was closed for renovations for a month or two but I think it has reopened very recently).
