I was in town on business and wanted to find a good mexician restaurant off the strip which had positive revues. The service was great however the food was very bland which included chips/ salsa/ carna asada/ rice beans. Margarita small and nothing special. Can't believe how many people were there! Definately would not recommend.

I was in LV to be with a family member at the Sunrise hospital and when my father had to get some tests done we decided to eat . I asked a nurse there, where to eat mexican food and he suggested the Lindo Michoacan on Desert Inn ,. Not being from LV i did get turned around a little , I asked a nice lady where this place was and it was just around the corner ,
, Service was just great , Food is what matters the most and this place is bulls eye perfect, I am looking forward to see my father again and can't wait to eat !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is by far the best mexican food i have had!! i live in los angeles so believe me i eat a whole lot of mexican food, but the food here is so so so good i wouldnt mind the 4-5 hr drive to vegas just to eat here. the service was outstanding, i never had service like this, i mean they were on top of things and always had a smile on their faces, made me and my guest feel right at home. the prices are just right to! i wish this restaurant was in LA, but like i said i would not mind the drive, everytime i come to vegas i will definetly make a stop here!!

Its amazing how needy certain customers can be,when i go to a restaurant i know before hand if i like the type of food they serve, and if i dont, i go with an open mind. Now Lindo's food is the best Mexican food in town and they have the best service as well, trust me, i have been in a lot of expensive overrated places in las Vegas and Lindo's and Flemmings are the top ones.So take your family,girlfriend,date,kids,whoever you want because you are gonna have the best food. If you like steak try the Tampiquena Steak, is my favorite dish there.Thank you for reading this, JP.

The hype this place gets is almost legendary so it would be pretty hard to live up to that hype. That said, Lindo Michoacan nearly does live up to the hype! The menu features a large number of items not often found on most Mexican restaurant menus. Meat is done especially well here as are soups and stews. Margaritas were surprisingly small but potent enough. Chips and salsa were only average. The carne asada is the best you will find anywhere and it starts with the fact they use New York Steak, not sirloin or skirt steak which is what you will fiind at most Mexican restaurants. Prices are high but you do get what you pay for.

my husband and i went over there a few weeks ago.the waiter super snooty. my husband ordered the enchiladas and i ordered fish tacos. the enchiladas were passable, but the fish tacos were not suitable for human consumption. i took a bite and immediately felt repulsed by it. i opened it and look at it and look like something you would not feed to even a dog. i called the waiter and politely told him i didnt like it. he shrugged his shoulders and just took away the plate. nothing else. we left that joint right away. a tourist trap

First have been in this town15 years and by far, this the best mexican restaurant in Las Vegas. The chips and salsa are the best appetizers of course acommpanied by the side beans they give you before the main course. The only down side about this wonderfull restauraunt and great food , is theservice . The waiters are rude and inpatient. Everyone in my table ordered except for me off course because i really take into consideration what choose to eat. The waiter made me feel really uncornftable after telling him to give me some time to order my food off course he didnt he stood right behind me until i ordered. So not fair. One thing for sure you its not fair to rate them like this because their food is amazing but their service is not up to standards. Unfortunately. And when you have reallly bad service you expect really bad food but amazingly is not . I would Definetely reccomend this restauraunt. Waiters get your game on : )

This has been my favorite restaurant for years. I love the food. The service is always great. And you can't beat the price. It is family owned and it is apparant that they take pride in their business. Would reccomend Lindo Michoacan to anyone.

Ok, I spent considerable time writing my review, and Citysearch scratched it, so we'll make this one quick. The food ranges from mediocre to horrible. It is somewhat overpriced. Do not order the carnitas fajitas unless you like the taste of unseasoned cooked pork. Salsa is not good. And no, don't even think about the pico de gallo as an alternative, I tried that, too -- it's a joke. Chips are bad but edible if you are hungry -- even more so if you slather refried beans (which they serve on the side) on them. I'd think twice about ordering a seafood dish, as our salmon tasted fishy. Service is good, though, and so are their flour tortillas, which seemed fresh. Overall, we were disappointed, as this was our first trip to Vegas, I love Mexican food dearly, and we did online research to determine where to eat the entire week. If we knew how bad the food was, we would've tried Isla at Treasure Island, since they had good reviews also. If you're visiting Vegas, don't bother to go to Lindo. If you live in Vegas and can cook, I'd bet you can make better Mexican food at home. I know I can. And for the boozers of the world, I don't know how the drinks are, and I don't care. It's not enough of a reason to go to a restaurant. And for $10 a pop for a margarita, I ought to be at the club......but then again, some guy would buy it for me, anyway.

On our recent trip to Las Vegas, we stayed on the strip but wanted to eat elsewhere one night. We found this place, and I'm so glad we did. This was our best meal the whole weekend! We had a large party, and we called ahead and had a very short wait for our table. Just time enough to grab a margarita (yum!) from the bar. The chips and salsa served first were good, but the bean dip served with them was awesome...we had several refills. I can't remember everyone's dishes, but there were no complaints from anyone at the table. The home made tortillas were fabulous...the best I've ever had. The service was very good, we never had to wait for anything. We were celebrating a birthday, and they took good care of the birthday boy! I would recommend this to anyone, and I'd definitely eat here again!

I came to Lindo Michoacan with some collegues for lunch. We mentioned to our waitress (very nice and helpful) that we were pressed for time. She made sure that we not only enjoyed our lunch, but we were in and out within 35 minutes. The food was very flavorful and tasted like authentic Mexican food. Something that I am always looking for here in the valley. I will make sure to bring my family in next time.

Here it is, the best mexican restaurant around. From the start with complimentary beans and chips to the finish with fried ice cream (flameado) this authentic mexican restaurant surpasses any expectations you come with. My favorite dish has to be the ""Pollo Sarandeado"" also called Chicken Tia Esther. Out of all the mexican restaurants I've been to in California, Las Vegas and Texas this is the best dish I have ever had. If chicken isn't your ""thing"" the dish also comes in shrimp, which is also an excellent dish and my Dad's favorite. Sometimes I switch it up and order the shrimp and make my own shrimp tacos with the tortillas that come with the meal which are, of course, made in the restaurant by somebody's abuelita (grandma). It is made with an original sauce I have yet to see duplicated elsewhere. There are two appetizers that I enjoy eating before my Tia Esther, the ""Papa Chencho"" which is a sampler plate of jalapeno poppers, quesadillas, and flautas and ceviche. If you like carnitas the ""Coca-Cola carnitas"" are an amazing taste. So seriously, CHECK IT OUT! And P.S the hostesses are very attractive.

I had my family in town for my college graduation & had my celebration dinner here. It was great! Everyone loved it & they know Mexican food! Everyone's glass was always full & we never found ourselves looking for a staff member. Highly recommended!

My friends and i had an amazing first time at this restaurant - they had great food, great service and when the cab didn't show up, the wonderful owner Javier offered to drive us back to the strip in his hummer! After operating this restaurant for 15 years, i can see how he has kept his customers happy - great food, service and going the extra mile just because he's a nice guy. I'm recommending this place to all my friends for their trip to Sin City

We were in Vegas for vacation and had a craving for some good ole mexican food just like back at home in san antonio. Sure enough we found this restaurant with the help of some people we met at our hotel. It was out of the way, but well worth the cab fare!!! I recommend this restaurant to anyone in the mood for some good authentic mexican food.

I am a transplanted Texan and looked for months to find a great Mexican restaurant and this is it. Try the table-side guacomole where they blend the fresh ingrediants right in front of you. I have yet to have an entree that was not delicious so if great food is what you are looking for get there quick!

these three family restaurants are part of the barajas family and it doesen't get better the this when it comes to mex food. bonito michoacan on the west viva michoacan in henderson and lindo in the heart of vegas dominate the mex food scene by far

Lindo's has reopened after being closed for 14 months because of a kitchen fire, and is packed with loyal diners again at lunch and dinner! An amazing restaurant. Stop in and say hello to Juan Carlos, my favorite waiter, and Javier, the very successful owner. There are now three Lindo's in Las Vegas, but this is the original, and best.
