I'm a native of Texas and have lived in Boston for 9 years. I've been looking for a great Mexican restaurant here for years. I just might have found it at Mexico Lindo. The whole vibe here is positive. It's on Melrose's Main Street so it's easy to find and it's a nice, safe neighborhood. The interior is clean, inviting with fun Mexican flurishes. A full bar is complete with multiple Mexican beers, including my hard-tofind-favorite Bohemia, and more Teguila than you can shake a maracca at! The waitstaff was friendly and accomodating. The food was very good. I've only been once and had a large combination platter with a chicken enchilada, beef soft-taco, a beef tamale, rice and beans. They also bring chips and salsa for free (an unusual occurrence in New England, not so in Texas). Granted, that what I find atttractive here is the food is almost Tex-Mex (a delicious bastardization of Mexico's true cuisine), but there are many authentic recipes here too. I can't wait to go back.
Pros: Very good and comprehensive menu, nice/fun decor, and friendly staff
Cons: Tamale's are 95% masa and 5% meat
