Lindo Mexico Restaurant
There’s one co-worker who can almost always talk me in to going out somewhere for dinner….even when I bring my lunch. She always catches me as I’m digging into my lunch bag to pull out a sandwich usually with no suggestion for dinner, but knowing she wants something.
Our most recent conversation ended the way it usually does. I tell her to pick a place and she walks away. After a few minutes, I tracked her down to tell her I was in the mood for Mexican. That made her happy because there’s a place in Wyoming that she really likes.
I was really only in the mood for tacos so I didn’t even look over the menu. I told her I’d go get it if she’d call it in. Before she called in, she asked around the office to see if anyone else was in the mood for Mexican. There was one more guy, so the three of us were in.
Lindo Mexica Restaurant is on 28th Street in Wyoming in what looks to me like an old Pizza Hut. The two closest major cross streets are Burlingame and Michael. After C.W. put the call in, she told me it would be about 15 minutes until it was ready. That works because it was going to take me about 15 minutes to get there.
I walked in to the dining room and headed straight for the cash register. The cashier headed back to the kitchen to grab the plastic bag with our tightly wrapped meals. The bill for the three of us came out to just over $23. As much as I hate ordering out with co-workers because of the inevitable splitting of the bill, this worked out pretty well because all three of us spent right around $8.
I kept things simple and ordered four soft shell corn beef tacos. Each of my four tacos were wrapped tightly in aluminum foil which made the two corn tortillas that wrapped the fillings very soft. I stuck with ground beef and each taco came with lettuce, tomato, and onion. The tacos really hit the spot. The meat had a really yummy, cumin heavy seasoning to them and there was a large portion of meat in each of the tortillas. It was one of those cases were I really wanted more when I was done, but the price scared me off from getting more.
C.W. #1 got the small Nachos Lindo Mexico. She tells me she usually orders the large and ends up throwing half away, so this time she actually ordered the small to avoid waste. The nachos are home made toritllas with refried beans, chicken, cheese, lettuce, tomato, Pico de Gallo, guacamole, sour cream and Mexican cheese. After I came back with dinner, I didn’t see her for a couple hours, but I know this is her favorite dish at her favorite Mexican restaurant, so I’m sure it was delicious.
C.W. #2 is a Mexican food connoisseur and Mexico Lindo is also one of his favorite places in the Grand Rapids area. He got two soft shell flour carne asada tacos, a side of Pico de Gallo Dip with chips, and some kind of Enchilada, but I actually forget which one. Again, didn’t see him for a couple hours after I got back, but I know this was not his first trip to Mexico Lindo and he keeps going back.
I know C.W. #1 is happy I got to her favorite Mexican place and I was happy to get some delicious tacos. This was just a quick stop to Mexico Lindo for me. I didn’t try a whole lot, but I was impressed with what I had.
