We heard great things about the authenticity of this restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. We were seated immediately, however no one came over to us until we asked a passing waiter. Then, the next 10mins was spent having three different waiters ask us if someone has waited on us yet. Finally, a waiter decided that she... More

After reading the great reviews, we decided to try it. We went the day before Thanksgiving for dinner, shortly after 5. I had Arroz con Marisco (shrimp and scallops) and my husband had some sort of scallop dish. Both dishes were overcooked, especially since they used bay scallops, the small ones. The shrimp in my dish were dry, which means... More

The food here is excellent! Great diversity of menu options. Most recently we had Pollo Parilla (3 thin pieces of marinaded white meat chicken, beans, rice, a verde sauce, tortillas and salad with guac) and Taquitos Mexicanos (4 taquitos with salad and guac). Also, bottomless chips! Solid sangria and margaritas! We've been there twice now and had a great meal... More

I ate lunch here for the first time while in Exeter. The chips and salsa were really good -- the chips weren't salty like others I've had, and the salsa wasn't so spicy that I had to order sour cream with it. The chicken tortilla soup was also very good, with a nice flavor and generous pieces of chicken among... More

We had a Grande Burrito and a #10 lunch special. We couldn't finish the meal--the portions are large. The taco chips and fresh salsa were terrific. Great service Clean restrooms. $22 for the meal and tip with water for a drink

It is difficult to find an authentic Mexican restaurant in New Hampshire. I found Mexico Lindo, and I am pleased at the quality and consistency of the food. Additionally they are very reasonably priced, and portions are generous. The guacamole is delicious and can be ordered table-side. Servers are courteous and helpful.

Have eaten at Mexico Lindo several times with my family over the past year. The food is OK, not great, but not bad. The prices are more than fair, so when you take the price and the quality into consideration you are good. They have a wide range of items on the menu and child friendly. The inside look nice...

We've gone to this restaurant many times since they opened. Great Mexican food - very authentic. So many Mexican restaurants taste like microwave food, not here! Everything is fresh to order. Their homemade salsa and chips are great when you arrive and look over the full menu. Everything we've tried has been fantastic!

Who doesn't love fresh guacamole made at your table...exactly how you like it! We go here often.....I'm a huge fan of Mole....their enchiladas Souza/verde rocks. Draft Mexican beers.........yummy chips and salsa.
