Awesome lunch buffet. They have beans, rice, chile verde, and chile colorado every day. They rotate between tamales, taquitos, flautas, and chimichangas. The soup is caldo de pollo or menudo. Taco bar every day with pollo or asada mon-Thurs and fish tacos on Fridays. Good salad bar, fruits, and desserts.

I called the manager to ask if they can accommodate a large group for after a funeral service. Pedro asked us to come in and look at the place and try the food. We loved everything. The place, the food, the price, and the hospitality. We had 150 people go and it turned out perfect. These things are never planned and we didn't want to have everyone at our home but Cielito Lindo took care of everything. Thank you Pedro, I will consider your place in this type of situation again. The food was excellent.
Loved it! Read the reviews online and My family and I were honestly scared to take my mom for her birthday but it was the nicest experience!! The mariachi even sang happy birthday to her and the waiters were very sweet! Loved the environment and will definitely go back for more celebrations!
Absolutely love lunch time buffet. Service is excellent and food is great!!! Inexpensive and hand made tortillas, what else could you ask for!!! No more than 15 dollars and it's amazing!!!
Grew up going here my whole life. Some of the finest Mexican food you can get in So Cal and a truly amazing show of talented musicians. Even if you a Huero' like me and don't know much of the mostly Spanish songs performed its still a exciting show with impressive singers. Anything on the menu is delicious. Jose and Chuey Hernandez are not only musical icons, but a family legacy in the restaurant world and Mariachi music. World famous Mariachi Sol De Mexico performs here and should be experienced by all.
I make a reservation to celebrate my wife birthday And I was very disappointed because when I make the reservation no one informed that Mariachi Sol De Mexico was not going to play.And let me tell you that was the only reason to go to Cielito LindoSince the food is very expensive And it is not the best
First time coming here, and it was amazing. Their brunch was amazing. Fall off the bone ribs, perfectly thickened broth soup, pulled pork, and a manned taco stand. While the restaurant seemed to be undermanned, the service was relatively expedient, the waiter checked up on our table quite frequently.
The best Mexican lunch buffet that I've ever been to. Everything I tasted was very good, from the enchiladas, to the carnitas, to the chile verde. Everything looked and tasted fresh, and the baked fish was delicious. The staff were also nice, and were attentive. I usually only like more expensive buffets ($30+,) but this place was good and reasonably priced. I will return.
Love this place! Great service, always busy :) The live Mariachi performances are awesome, definitely recommend going!
You're immediately greeted at the door. The ambiance was very romantic... haha... house light's were dimmed, candles on tables, that sort of thing.
