Boasting authentic Mexican cuisine and potent margaritas, Mexico Lindo Restaurant and Cantina satisfies cravings for home-cooked south of the border fare. The restaurant's décor matches the down-home fare and although somewhat simple, both the atmosphere and menu please those seeking a traditional dining experience. During happy hour, which starts at 3pm, fill up for cheap - the cantina's classic and fruit-flavored margaritas are $4 and tacos are just a buck.
On weekdays students and San Jose locals crowd to this San Jose bar and restaurant for strong margaritas and raucous karaoke, with some tasty home-style Mexican food to boot. But here's the most important feature of Mexico Lindo Restaurant and Cantina: Happy hour starts at 3 p.m. That means $4 margaritas until you can't stand up, or if you're slightly more reasonable, $4 margaritas tempered with $1 tacos to keep it all in balance. On weekends Mexico Lindo heats up with DJs spinning salsa and Top 40, and the same margaritas to keep the party going.
