Must try the Alambre?? The guacamole is made fresh to order. Delicious every time we go. The service is a bit lacking. Fast but not a lot of chit chat but I think its because they are so busy. Food is always hot and fast. Authentic!!!

Visited on a Saturday to the 28th street location, I was in the mood for Mexican food and the wait at Lindos was an hour for our group of six. We walked in here and were seated immediately. They brought some chips and sauce in squeeze bottles. It was busy that day and the restaurant was full the staff did... More

We went for lunch, and the entire restaurant was dirty. I'm sure there were several health codes violated. The good was average, but they didn't have any salsa for our chips - only hot sauce in a squirt bottle. I would not recommend this place for any family or friends.

We arrived on a Saturday night after 8:00. If a place is still busy that should be a good sign especially when there is no alcohol or entertainment, which they have neither. There were no clean tables nor did the place look very clean. We informed the first person to our table that it was our first time, no comment... More

Please keep in mind they serve on paper plates and plastic forks so that should give you an idea of what to expect. No alcohol and there is... More

The atmosphere here is a little half hazardous and confusing! You walk in and it's hard to figure out what to do. Do you seat yourself or wait? Do you go up to the counter to order or do they come to you. Do you get your own drink refills or do they do it. Most places these questions are... More
