We stopped in here last weekend it was my husbands birthday so my daughter (12 yoa) wanted to take him to eat and to the movies. Our standard go to in Lexington is Papa Jack's pizza but it was a Sunday night so they were closed. My husband picked Las Carretas because it was next to the movie theater. That... More

Love to eat here when visiting friends in Lexington. My very favorite dish here is the Fajita Taco Salad. I've never had anything else like it, and it is so good!

I've eaten at Las Carretas a number of times over the years and it never fails to offer good, hot food with friendly service. The staff always goes out of their way to please. Housed in the old Lexington Brewery building (most famous during the Prohibition years), owners have tried to maintain the integrity of the old historic building. Food... More

Our food came fairly quickly for such a large group, was hot and delicious. Meals were large and made little room for desert. Margaritas were fantastic. I... More

Great service. Great food. The best margaritas anywhere! Next door to the movie theater, makes a night out very convenient.
