This used to be one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Lexington, but the recent ratings are right and it has went down hill. Too dark and health dept. inspection rating low. Food was OK bu y atmosphere leaves much to desire.

Here from out of town and had no idea what was around our hotel. Extremely fast service and food came super fast! Chips were warm and salsa good. Strawberry daiquiri was strong and delicious. Daughter got spinach quesadilla and cheese dip which was good too! Server was great.

We just had a couple margarita's (good) and split the braised pork and black bean nachos. All was good to the last drop/bite. Service "so so". We got in and out quickly. The hostess sat us and was seen twirling on a bar chair on our way out.. no thanks for dining, see you or any greeting. No prob, we... More

We arrived late on a Friday night, almost 10, and they close at 10:30. We were greeted by a friendly hostess, seated immediately, and waited on promptly. The food was incredible, large portions and very tasty. The margaritas were amazing. Service was excellent. We will be back!

This is your standard American Mexican food. Nothing stands out as exceptional but it's all pleasant food. Service is good. We visit a few times a year.

Got into town late late and we met up with our daughter who moved to the LEX last year. despite the fact that we made it into the restaurant right before closing, the staff was very welcoming and gracious in serving us (despite probably being ready to go home!). Our food came out fresh, hot and perfectly prepared right down... More
