This little restaurant in southern Lexington has great food, service and slightly different menu. They are extremely attentive to your needs (My wife uses a wheelchair) and the whole atmosphere is dominated by a big and beautiful fish tank in the middle of the sitting area. Great entertainment if you are there with children. I have been to this place... More

I have been going to this restaurant since it first opened it's doors as I have always lived nearby. I spend every single birthday dinner here as well, free shot, birthday song, and they snap a classic polaroid of you too. I love the atmosphere and the people who work there are so sweet. The food is better than any... More

We have been wanting to try this out for quite awhile. So excited we did. The restaurant is quite dark inside with the traditional mexican decor. The servers are very attentive. The chips and salsa are very tasty and fresh. The salsa is not too spicy. We were excited about it. Next I ordered the Carnitas. OH MY!! they came... More

Hacienda's is top quality Mexican for Lexington, but also festive and they do a great birthday celebration!

Hacienda has been around for a while, and is my favorite for several reasons. The staff are always attentive and very polite, the chips and dips fresh, and the fajitas prepared well with plenty of meat. They can get very busy on the weekends, so plan on getting there a few minutes early, especially if you have a large group.

I had to make a run to the post office at lunch and decided to pop into Mi Pequena Hacienda for a quick bite. I was seated quickly but waited about 10-15 minutes for the server to make an appearance at my table. Once I ordered food, the kitchen was incredibly slow. At some point the server brought me a...

MI Pequena Hacienda has a lot of menu choices, lunch specials, and combinations. Good food combined with friendly and attentive service brings in a large crowd so it can be loud during peak dining times. Their salsa went from being one of my favorites to pretty bland for a short while, but I'm glad to report it is back in... More

We've dined here off and on since the place opened and through the years it has definitely slid down into the category of mundane. If you're looking for a place to have average tex-mex food in an overcrowded, noisy atmosphere, this is it. MUCH better just up Reynolds Rd.

This is just an outstanding Mexican restaurant right here in Lexington. Such fresh dishes. Don't want it as on the menu, just ask and no problem to change it. Like salsa, they have many and will bring you a sample to try, just ask. Those fresh made tortillas capture quite an audience while be made in the front window....try them... More

Traveling for business, Kentucky was oddly cold (below 0° F) But I wanted south of the border Mexican, so we went to Mi Pequena Hacienda. It was late (close to closing) and cold (3° F) But our waiter was friendly, our food was good and our time was fun. Only problem was that the ktichen didn't understand the difference between...
