Very happy this location opened here. I know it used to be another Mexican restaurant, not sure how it was. Each time I've eaten here I have always been delighted. Must try it!

Good food with excellent drinks. The fish was good with the tomato base sauce would have to try some of their other dishes to make a more informed opinion. Margaritas are very good for happy hour and well priced a little more tequila would have been excellent.

I have been here 5x. Food is very good for lunch. Mexican Steak Sandwich and the Palomilla is very good. Prices are good and get a great lunch for your buck.

I'd come here with my husband all the time, after today, never again. The soup was cold, 1 cup of water the whole time. Service is super bad. They brought me someone else's food. They had to make my nachos 4 times & still came out wrong. I had my entire meal & the nachos came after the meal, still... More

I have been there several times and it is always a good experience. The people are friendly as soon as you walk in. Plenty of tables and lots of room. Good fish and meat dishes as well as traditional tacos, burritos, etc. Great for family and very kid friendly

Waiter was friendly and attentive. Chips and salsa were good when the two salsas provided were combined as one was pretty bland and the other had a kick. It's a safe bet if you're looking for a decent Mexican dinner.

The crab nachos are incredible and reasonable in cost. And you have to love the bottomless nachos and home style salsa

Description
Cielito Lindo has their beginning in the spring of 1985 when we opened our first restaurant in Pompano Beach. Then, as now, each dish was faithfully created from favorite recipes passed down from generation to generation and brought with us from Mexico.

Over the years, we have taken great pride in offering our guests fine foods of Mexico prepared and served with dedication to the best of Mexico's traditions. New dishes are constantly bring created and adapted for your enjoyment and dining pleasure. Our popular "Especialidades de la Casa" reflects the high quality long associated with Cielito Lindo Restaurants, and now seafood dishes, "Pescado del Mar," compliment our new Cielito Lindo Restaurants.

Welcome to Cielito Lindo's. Enjoy your visit, and come again soon.
