They do not take reservations and we had 7 poeple, so we had to wait about 30 minutes, but it was worth it. The music was entertaining, the food was very good, the Margaritas were excellent and the services was remarkably good, especially considering the crowd. Everyone agreed that it was a very good night.

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.

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

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.
