We had intended to eat across the street at a certain Italian place and thought we would get in there early...nope...it was packed! We looked around a bit and Mexico Lindo looked like an okay place. Wow were we surprised. It was so delicious! Best chili rellenos I have EVER had and I order them whenever they are on a... More

I am by no means an expert on what would be considered 'authentic', I just know that I love 'mexican' food and this place was tops! The decor was great, the chips and salsa at the table are also great, and the food was perfectly filling. I ordered a combination plate that came with a chile relleno and cheese enchilada,... More

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.

I've been going there for years since I've moved to melrose . It was my mom and mine favorite place . Unfortunately with years for me the food has gone down hill . I don't know what happened but that rich flavor that we loved so much that used to have passion and love with each bite is gone .... 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
