We've been eating there for years on our nearly annual visits to San Jose from Germany. The food, staff, and atmosphere are great, and we always look forward to our next visit. The murals by Ricardo, whose work can also be found in Mission San Jose in Fremont, have become cult objects within our family. We like hearty, genuine Mexican... More

Mexico Lindo is our weekly go to dinner spot. The food is piping hot, delicious and quick! You gotta love a place where the waiter knows our "usual". Love it!

Every time I visit Mexico Lindo, I cannot pass up on the margaritas and the carnitas. You know it is good when you take your Mexican friends there, and they love it!

We have been going to Mexico Lindo on Foxworthy Avenue for the past 25 years and find it to be a comfortable place with good Mexican food. Even on a busy Friday evening we get seated pretty quickly as they open more sections. The service is quick and food is served hot. Choices on the menu are extensive. I usually... More

We have eaten there a few times in the past and it has been okay. We ate there recently because the place we wanted to eat at had a long wait time. I guess my rating of "Average" kinda says it all. It was okay; we ate decent Mexican food, but when the chips and salsa are the best part... More

Food was okay not much flavor to the burrito supreme I ordered. I requested a milder salsa to go with the chips that are served and they turned around and charged me for it. If they are going to charge you for something that everywhere else you get for free- they sh

I have been to this Mexico Lindo restaurant twice this year. The food here is always served fresh and hot, as you would expect from a family-style sit down restaurant. However, I have found that there are too few wait staff for the number of tables they have, so we are left waiting for chips and salsa refills, or water... More

The food is hot, tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced .. your server may even delight you with some humor.."What do you call a cow without legs?" "Ground Beef!"

Mexico Lindo is a consistently good place to eat. They have a large variety of dishes on the menu, and serve complementary chips and salsa. Their salsa is quite good, which is one of my first evaluations of a Mexican restaurant. My “go to” item here is the chili relleno, which I typically pair with another Mexican favorite, like a...
