Having traveled throughout mexico, my husband and myself are passionate about real food. This little gem serves up the most delicious Chile rellenos i've ever had!! Their entire menu is cooked on the spot; generous with their chips and salsas; gentle and friendly service. Housed in a former gas station with a little Bodega attached. Muy delicioso!!

This hole in the wall Mexican restaurant is housed in an old service station. Tiny enough they have a small grocery too, it would be fantastic for them to fill the shelves with Mexican staples, I would love to find some dried hibiscus. The lunch menu is pretty extensive and the food is cooked perfectly by the gals behind the... More

Great Mexican food! It doesn't look like much, but the food is fabulous. The salsa is fresh! Have been 3 times now in a month!

We got our dinners to go, chicken enchiladas and a beef chimichanga, both with rice and beans. The positives: good bargain for what you get, a lot of meat in both entrees, tasted fine, and friendly service. I would probably go again and try something else. I asked for extra salsa and got extra sauce - probably my mistake. The... More

In a converted gas station, this place has virtually no ambience, little parking, only a chair or two to sit down. It doesn't need to have those things. As soon as you see the two hardworking abuelitas behind the counter, you know you're in for a treat. Homemade traditional food not to be found in any other Mexican restaurant within... More

Every so often when I see they are not busy I stop in for fish tacos, which I eat on the go. I have heard their burritos, tamales and rice and beans are excellent. The place is an old gas station turned into a small Mexican food market with a tiny grill and a great cook. When they are not... More

A place to pre-order your Christmas Tamales. A small Mexican type grocery with food. I have had reports that their sandwiches are very good. I've only had the tamales.

I stopped in at Celito Lindo for take out. Ordered a taco salad which was fresh and delicious. I like that they include guacamole with the meal. Wait is under 5 minutes.
