As a visitor to your State I visited Mi Mexico Restaurant at 818E. New Circle Rd in Lexington. As I started to eat while sitting at the Bar, I saw a man name Javier or Jaime start trying to remove Ice Cream from a bucket after many attempts, he ended up sticking his hand in the Ice Cream scooping up...

We went for lunch on a weekday--not crowded. I ordered a chicken chimichanga and my friend ordered a burrito. For $7 we each had a huge amount of food, most of which went home in a box for the next day. This was the first time I had been there for lunch. We both were impressed with the meal. We... More

They can get a bit busy on the weekends, but the food is always amazing. Affordable, scrumptious, good service and amazing Margaritas... you just can't go wrong here.

I visited this restaurant with my bff and we had wonderful service. This is a family restaurant and I mean family. It's so nice to see the family members working together to serve their customers. We were very well taken care of. Had happy hour drinks and dips and chips. Great food! I will visit again.

The margaritas are awesome. They know how to make them right. If you have more than 2, get an uber for reals. Nobody makes a better margarita. The chips and quaso is always good too. Service is great. Great family place too. A little more expensive than the average Mexican restaurant but worth it. Try it!

Stopped in this place last Saturday and was impressed to say the least. We were seated without delay and they immediately brought chips, salsa and beans that were seasoned to perfection. Margaritas were good, service was polite and timely. We had the fajitas and the aroma alone set my tastebuds on fire. Again, seasoned perfectly and served sizzling hot with... More

We went on a Friday Night. We arrived at about 6:45 and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. Once we were seated, they brought out chips, salsa and bean dip. I didn't care much for the salsa, but the bean dip was good. The food was good. The drinks were average. The service was good.

Mi Mexico used to be one of our favorite places until the bartender (Jorge) left. Since then service has gone downhill. Twice we have gone there intending to eat there and ended up just having drinks because they are slow to come around even when sitting at the bar. We ended up getting fast food across the street on our... More

The chips, salsa, and bean dip was very good. I had the chicken mole which was good, but the sauce was a bit sweeter than what I'm used to. The rest of the family enjoyed their entrees as well.
