Located in what used to be a gas station, Celito Lindo has zero atmosphere, but the food is really good.

This is a resturant/store convered from a gas station. If a man is cooking, the food is wonderful. If a woman is cooking, not so much. They do have wonderful spanish rice, and good fish tacos.

Located in a converted gas station at the stoplight for Oak Street and US 101, the authentic Mexican dishes are made right in front of you in the tiny kitchen. Six dollar menu items will feed two people, and they can be made to-go or be enjoyed on-site. The attached convenience store will complete your meal. Get your food for a day at the beach or on the river here and support local business.

They make authentic Mexican dishes to go. They are tasty and freshly made. The place is in a converted gas station. Don't let the looks fool you. The locals know quality when they taste it and this place has been in business here for years. It looks like a Mexican gas station but it's not. It's a great take out place with great Mexican food.

I'll have to part with the crowd on this one. This is not even really a diner. There are a couple of plastic tables plopped down in a convenience store's floor space, right beside a potato chip rack. Our food was bland, soggy and barely recognizable as Mexican fare. The overall store/"diner" looked tired and dirty too. Where's the health food inspector in this town? I've eaten at better/cleaner places in the backwaters of Mexico. It seemed like a great option for workers, for grabbing a quick cheap meal, especially if you're too busy to care about the taste. I don't understand the other reviews here and I don't think I'm an overly picky diner.
