Horrible gross food and service was so bad and very expensive by over charging. Wait staff provided one of the worst dining experiences that I have ever had. Every time a drink was empty we had to ask for a refill in which the server made it seem as if it was an inconvenience each and every time. When we... More

We try to come here at least once a week. I highly recommend the Enchiladas Rancheras. It is the best in town.

Excellent experience. Seriously the best barbacoa tacos I've had in the US. I recommend the green sauce that accompanies it. Fresh and loaded with onions and cilantro. Located behind Captain Ds, so it's a little hard to see, but worth the trip. Right near the mall.

This is by far my favorite mexican restaurant in town and Lexington's best kept secret! It's a small place ran by the owners cooking recipes from their ancestors. The al pastor tacos and fish tacos are the best I've ever EVER had. If you're a seafood lover try the burrito del mar. The guacamole is super fresh, and the salsa... More

Our son recommended we try this restaurant. Our order was large in size and tasted very good. It is now at the top of my list for good quality mexican food. With the service and atmosphere you can't beat this place. *****

Based on good reviews, my wife and I had lunch at this restaurant during a shopping trip to Lexington. We found the food to be outstanding. The chips came with various dipping sauces, and all of them were really great. We also had a cheese dipping sauce that was outstanding. The food was truly authentic having been prepared on the...

Came in for lunch around 12 on a Sunday. We were the only 2 in there. You need to look for it it sits back off the road. Turn by Captain D's. The chip & salsa were super fresh and the salsa was slightly hot. I got the 3 taco plate. 3 tacos with your choice of meat with rice... More

We love Mexican food. We have eaten in some pretty good places and I tell you now that everything in this establishment is not only excellent, but amazingly unique. Everything from salsa to guacamole is small-batch-fresh and just like grandmother made for young Gloria who has (and guards closely) what is apparently an extensive collection of her recipes (Pumpkin blossoms,...

From the outside, this looks like a little restaurant; once inside, there are several dining areas. Food was good, service was a little slow but the server was very pleasant. Our friend ordered extra veggies - it was a generous portion of steamed veggies that were very tasty!

This is one of those hidden spots I love to find. Located in small strip mall by fast food spot, this place has beautiful decor--bright colors, good recorded music, huge menu at reasonable prices. Best fresh pico de gallo in town
