Very good Tex-Mex

Mi Mexico offers very good Tex-Mex standards. If you want simple mexican food this is a good choice. If you want something more like what might find in the West you may have a difficult time finding it in Lexington.

The food here is, at best, average. There always seems to be discord among the employees which results in subpar service (the Mexicans don't get along with the Guatemalan workers). A few weeks ago the Lexington KY Health Department closed the place after an inspection discovered actual insect/rodent infestation of the food. The FOOD people! They are in the process... More

I have eaten at many mexican restaurants in my life and mi mexico is by far the best I have ever had in this area. The prices are good and the service is good. If you want better than this you would have to go out west.

Good Mexican food, reasonable prices and good service. I like this place. I ate lunch there today. Luncheon specials are priced right and deliver on taste and freshness.

Loved the premium margarita and the cheese relleno. They had a live mariachi band. The service was also very good. If you like spicy, be sure to request their spicy salsa. I pretty much love every variation of Mexican food. This was definitely a more TexMex style.

Eight of us went to the Mi Mexico on Richmond Rd., and we're all pretty happy! My husband ordered his usual Mexican fare, Enchiladas, and cleaned his plate. Several people had fajitas, one person had a veggie quesadilla, someone had a platter, and I had the veggie platter. I think the consensus was that mine was the best, which surprised... More

We had lunch and ordered off the lunch menu. Ordered chicken fajitas. The lunch fajitas doesnt come out on a sizzling platter, but on a plate. No lettuce or sour cream either. I never ordered fajitas before and not be served on a sizzling cast iron skillet. Also, my family of 5 was given two basket of chips and salsa.... More
