Great Mexican food! It doesn't look like much, but the food is fabulous. The salsa is fresh! Have been 3 times now in a month!

We got our dinners to go, chicken enchiladas and a beef chimichanga, both with rice and beans. The positives: good bargain for what you get, a lot of meat in both entrees, tasted fine, and friendly service. I would probably go again and try something else. I asked for extra salsa and got extra sauce - probably my mistake. The... More

In a converted gas station, this place has virtually no ambience, little parking, only a chair or two to sit down. It doesn't need to have those things. As soon as you see the two hardworking abuelitas behind the counter, you know you're in for a treat. Homemade traditional food not to be found in any other Mexican restaurant within... More

Every so often when I see they are not busy I stop in for fish tacos, which I eat on the go. I have heard their burritos, tamales and rice and beans are excellent. The place is an old gas station turned into a small Mexican food market with a tiny grill and a great cook. When they are not... More

A place to pre-order your Christmas Tamales. A small Mexican type grocery with food. I have had reports that their sandwiches are very good. I've only had the tamales.

I stopped in at Celito Lindo for take out. Ordered a taco salad which was fresh and delicious. I like that they include guacamole with the meal. Wait is under 5 minutes.

Celito Lindo is in plain sight on the corner of 101 and Oak Street. It used to be a gas station, now it is a mini mart and Mexican grill with mostly take-out. There is a counter with about 4 seats available and 2 small tables. The food is very good! They have specialties through the week including tamales on... More
