We've gone here several times, father much more than I since he lives nearby. Classic traditional food served promptly and freshly made. I love spicy, and their hot sauce is very hot. Never had a bad meal here, this last time the carnitas.

Authentic food. Reasonably priced. Often crowded. Sometimes the service can be very very slow but the authentic food makes up for it. Outdoor area as well when the weather is nice.

Stopped here for dinner with family. Our party of six was seated immediately and our waitress served us all quickly and efficiently. Dinner was very fresh, hot and delicious. Loved the salsa! We all love this place!

My family and I ate here twice during our visit to Gainesville. The food is delicious and the service is fantastic! The salsa is spicy hot and fresh. Fajitas are our favorite. Will be back again.

I have been eating here for 10 years. The name is now Linda Vista but the food and service haven't changed. My 2 favorites are the Taco Salad and the Carnitas. Whether it be lunch or dinner, the food is fast and fresh. Stop by and enjoy.

Best Mexican food around town. The prices are very good for your pocket. Everything was freshly done and the good was not overly season. They use fresh produce

I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try something new, I was torn between scallop tacos and a scallop burrito our waitress recommended the scallop burrito and it was AMAZING! Plate long and loaded with scallops, cheese, rice and fresh avocado. I can't wait to stop here on my next trip through Gainesville.

We have visited this restaurant many times and always take out-of-town friends there to eat. It is a small, family-owned restaurant that has never disappointed us. It is very affordable and quite popular with families. A great place for lunch or dinner (closed Mondays).

I am guessing that the name has changed and that is why I was not able to find it. This restaurant has delicious and inexpensive Mexican food. The staff was extremely friendly. They set plenty of chips and salsa they were a little slow on the refills and checking with the table as we were missing a couple of items... More
