This place was recommended to a friend by a coworker so we decided to try it out. Everyone loved the food. We had steak nachos, steak quesadilla, beef tacos, quest, and beef tamales. Everything was inhaled. The steak was very tender and all of us said we would go back again. 2 of us have since gone back and again... More

We were in Knoxville for a day and stopped in here. Fantastic food and wonderful customer service! I tried the tamales and loved them though I wish I would have gotten them in chili and bought more to take home! The cheese dip is to die for!

I chose a lunch plate. Food arrived in minutes. A word to the wise- not the best place to 15+ people during lunch on a Wednesday. This restaurant... More

Great food, a mom and pop kinda place. We moved to town a couple of months ago, tried a couple of the well known places (Tex-Mex) it was terrible and cost more. Found this place today and food was great. We ordered the enchiladas with green sauce and the burrito plate along with queso and guacamole. Everything was fresh, hot,... More

We have been coming here for years as a family. It is a great place to have a nice family dinner with friendly service. This is one of the only restaurants in town where my youngest actually eats! Also, shrimp is one of those things I am usually nervous to order out and about, but the shrimp quesadillas here are... More

I have been enjoying Mexico Lindo since 2008. They are a family operation and do a fabulous job. Thier Tamales are well know in town. They have an All you can eat option for lunch and a great menu to choose from. Give them a try, You won't be disappointed.

Went here per recommendation of neighbor and wasn't disappointed. The staff were prompt and friendly and our order came faster than we anticipated. Prices very reasonable and food very tasty, one of the best tasting burritos I have had. The only negative was need for a little updating. Table cloth quite faded. I highly recommend you will not be disappointed.

Excellent food and service. Amazing salsa and very fresh food. I travel to Knoxville about once a month, and make a point to eat here every time.
