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

For Lexington, graveyard of many a restaurant, this place isn't too bad. My order was botched by the kitchen, but that happens sometimes. I liked my chile rilleno and also the rice and beans. Service was good

Great Mexican food, lots of space and right next door to the movie theater. Use to be an old brewy house that has now been converted to Las Carretas.
