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... More

My title says it all. I went to the Brannon location this week and decided to sit on the patio. We were seated promptly and served quickly. I love the obviously home made salsa and chips. I ordered a draft XX amber. A full liter of the coldest possible beer for the price of a bottle of Bus Light at... More

Oh boy.... Where do I begin we love this place so much. First off we enjoy the food but the friendliness of the staff( especially Yasidi) keeps us coming back. We always enjoy our food, it's very tasty and hot(temp). Love the Mexican dip. Yasidi knows our drinks( brings them to us immediately) and gives us excellent customer service. She... More

WOW!!! This was a great surprise! I love Mexican food and this took the trophy! We weren't expecting much when we arrived. The restaurant just opened for lunch and we saw the sign for lunch specials which lured us there instead of the Mcdonalds in the same lot. I am so glad we went for it. The atmosphere was awesome,...
