I love going here for lunch, the tacos are the best in Lexington and the guac is also very good, they make a wonderful margarita and they are always accommodating of dogs which is nice

The menu is somewhat simple but the tacos are awesome--especially the fish and fried chickens versions. Their grilled corn on the cobb is such a nice tread. Love everything about this place including the outdoor seating. Most excellent!

Great local restaurant as the name syggests. Inexpensive especially with the weekend brunch specials for both food and drinks. Fun, lively atmosphere. A must visit for the great UK scene.

Simple and casual with orders placed at the counter, but quality and value would be hard to beat elsewhere. Will definitely be back.

We found this place on a whim. Indoor and outdoor tables. Very casual, but cool place. The tacos are about $2.75/taco with a bunch of variety. Also have combo specials. You order at the counter. They bring it to you. I tried the Southern Fried Chicken, Fish, and Steak tacos. They weren't bad, but neither were they extremely memorable. Nice... More

The tacos were bland. The margaritas were good! May give it another try and opt for something other than tacos.

Drinks were great and so were the appetizers. The tacos lacked much flavor. We had the Korean, Beef and Pork BBQ tacos. None of the meats were even warm and mostly very dry. The sides - turnip greens, potatoes, corn and beans were good.

AI local told me that we were missing something by not trying LT. He was right. After about a dozen visits to Lexington without visiting the LT, we feel like we have been missing out! This will now be one of our regular stops on our next visit. Don't be turned off by the name if you don't like Mexican... More
