Poor customer service. Went to go pick up my food, & they never prepared it. I  asked if they can prepare it and I agreed to wait. They later came out saying they don't have the ingredients to make my food.. wasted my time here..

I am never going back here again although I've eaten here four times and have never had an issue. I ordered enchiladas and my sister ordered a cheese quesadilla. When they brought out the food, the quesadilla had chicken inside. I called the waitress over and she brought another one. The second quesadilla she brought was super greasy. I mentioned it to the waitress and she said it's because of the cheese. I know for a fact that it's not because of the cheese because my sister has ordered it numerous times. I'm very disappointed and will never go back.

I can't say this is the *best* Mexican I've ever had but considering location and the options around here, Cielito Lindo is a stand out. There's a lot of restaurants in small strip malls around this road but this family operated Mexican restaurant gives you such delicious food for such a great deal that I wouldn't really want to have anything else if I'm around here. There is an expansive selection of familiar foods including tacos, nachos, tortas, quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos, guacamole but also encompass a wide selection of traditional Mexican plates/entrees served with rice and beans including chicken in mole sauce, barbacoa, carnitas... wow! I was a bit overwhelmed because I wanted to try everything but ended up going with Barbacoa de Chivo con Rajas (goat meat with grilled chile peppers). A friend who is a frequent customer suggested the Casamiento (pork chop & steak with fried plantains). My friends who came with got the Casamiento and El Comal which looked and tasted amazing. Before your order arrives, each table is given homemade nachos with a green dip/salsa and pico de gallo. So fresh and the green dip is really amazing, I've had nothing like it but it's flavorful and you can see the cilantro in there. My actual entree was massive and even though I was starving, I could barely finish the whole plate. Super fresh and flavorful. To the point where I didn't even need hot sauce and I love slathering hot sauce on my food. As for ambiance... it's not a high end restaurant and you shouldn't expect it to be. It's actually a converted Japanese restaurant - you can see from the glass at the front door with the bamboo accents and the front desk decorations. It's not a big restaurant either; there's booths that fit 4 on both sides and some tables in the center. There's some baked goods at the front in rows of trays that you can pick up to go. BYOB. Can call to pick up food if you don't want to eat there. Seems like delivery isn't super consistent but it's certainly worth a drive by to eat here. If you have a Mexican fix while you're around this part of the Jersey shore, I can't recommend Cielito Lindo enough :)
