Mexico Lindo is one of the oldest Mexican restaurants in New York City. The family owned and operated establishment opened its doors in May of 1972. The dishes at Mexico Lindo are local, seasonal and inspired by the home-cooked meals one would eat growing up outside of Mexico City.

Try one of the restaurant’s signature house specials, which include mole poblano, shrimp enchiladas, grilled steak tacos. In the summer, Mexico Lindo celebrates the zucchini squash blossoms with a handmade corn masa quesadilla & bicolor corn esquites.

    The atmosphere could use a face lift. However, the food is delicious. Third time I've been here, and the food is really superb.

    After not visiting for a many years was afraid the food wouldn’t be good as I remembered. Wrong! They haven’t lost their touch. My friends and I enjoyed our dishes and my margarita.

    Mexico Lindo is a go to restaurant for every day or for special occasions. The food is always delicious with the best plantains to be found anywhere! The staff is courteous , friendly and efficient. We are so happy they made it through the Pandemic! The restaurant is family owned and is celebrating their 50th year. Keep up the good work! We are lucky to have you as our ‘local’ restaurant.

    Fabulous family owned Mexican Restaurant that has been around for almost 50 years . Had a great Valentines dinner , food was great and the staff was amazing . They accomodated some special requests . The queso fundito with the Chorizo is better than Mexico . If you have not had dinner here I would recommend that you go as soon as possible before the crowds come back to NYC and you will not be able to get a table

    At 4:30 the restaurant was not crowded. We sat in the enclosed area outside - disturbed only if an a vehicle went by. The food was very good and we look to returning!

    Restaurant was very noisy and full of students. Almost too loud for conversation. Made a reservation but shown to an undesirable table even tho seating area was empty in that area. Finally seated properly. Hope they aren’t slipping.
