Situated on Gubei's Hongmei Pedestrian Street Mexicolindo does a variety of Tex-Mex standards like burritos, enchiladas, tacos and fajitas. There was a time when this place was about your only option in town for a decent Mexi-style meal. But with some recent additions to the scene, this place falls far behind in terms of quality.

I wanted to write a quick follow-up review on Mexicolindo, maybe my favorite divey Mexican joint in Shanghai. Think: more Cantina Agave and less Maya, as far as offering value-for-money Mexican-American food in a laidback setting. However the service here is better than Agave's and the setting isn't dark and dingy like Zapata's.
The food is very average, with standards like nachos, hard-shell tacos, enchiladas, burritos - all junky but passable. The upside is their frozen margaritas, which are a lot more palatable than the sweet and sour laden, stomach-killing ones at Agave or Big Bamboo. My favorite is still Maya - both for the flavor and copious alcohol - however Lindo's are a fraction of the price.
Even better are Saturdays and Sundays, with RMB 25 margaritas and half-priced pitchers. Located in Gubei, I can see how it can be a jaunt for some people just looking to get a junk food/alcohol fix. However if you're looking to make an afternoon of it and want to sit outside and get sloshed on the cheap, it's not a bad choice.

We have been there twice last week. Nice Margaritas, Plenty of food,
and it tasted good. WE have tried a couple of Mexican/TexMex in Shanghai, but have not found a better one yet. It is coming close to the Mexican restaurants we visited in Richmond, Virgina.
And guys. If you really want to have mexican food, you need to travel to Mexico to get it authentic. But this is with every food.
