    Lindo Michoacan: Great Fresh Tortillas

    by moviegal226 Written Jun 17, 2015

    This is by far my favorite of all the Lindo locations in town (and this is the original, where it all started)! There's no view and parking is obnoxiously limited, but the service is fast, the employees are friendly, and the food is yummy.

    This is where I come when I want to blow my low carb diet. The fresh made flour tortillas are so good that I usually end up eating several baskets -- and it is always worth it! The corn chips and salsa / bean dip are all super tasty too. The menu is large enough so there truly is something for everyone. This location does a big office lunch business because they have a great smaller portion lunch special menu, so expect crowds if you go during the workday.

    My go-to favorites here are the queso with peppers as an appetizer (simple yet always amazing), the Pollo Con Rajas Y Crema Estilo Stephania (chicken breast with mild roasted peppers and a yummy cream sauce), and tasty chicken fajitas. A true local Las Vegas gem.

    Lindo Michoacan: THE Best Mexican Joint in town

    Lindo Michoacan Restaurant: burned down & recently rebuilt better than ever is by far the best authentic sit-down Mexican food in town. They have really great food, atmosphere, service (everybody is either family, or friends who have moved from Michoacan), and a great one-man band with an awesome neo-Elvis harcut and a great voice who is there nightly to personally seranade you through your huevos rancheros or awesome chile rellenos. This place is authentic, fun and tasty. The lime candies on the way out are downright swank and add that perfect finishing touch to a memorable and filling 'cena bien rica'.

    Favorite Dish: Their chile rellenos are great and they make their own fresh tortillas near the front door. They have a large selection of unique dishes from the owner's home state of Michoacan, Mexico. The margaritas are strong and tasty too. (Ps.: Negro Modelo is the best beer with which to consume Mexican food). Their website has the whole menu on it too.

    The last time I was in Vegas, I went to a Mexican place called Lindo Michoacan, which is about a 15 minute taxi ride away from the strip. This restaurant's food is just amazingly good, and authentic, Mexican. Definitely try the guacamole - they will wheel a cart next to your table and make it up right in front of you. The margaritas were excellent as well. A great place to begin a Vegas evening. Check out this website for more info, including the menu.
