We were with a group of 24 and our original restaurant choice was closed. This was convenient and able to handle a large group. We both had the lunch specials mine was the #1 a taco, enchilada and rice or beans. My husband had the #5, burrito with taco and beans. Both were just OK, not great or bad. The... More

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

This was your standard Mexican fare, but was very tasty and affordable. My husband ordered the special dinner. It was two large plates filled with food. He is a big eater, but even he brought leftovers home. The meal was on,y around $11 or $12. I had the chimichanga. I asked them to make it with ground beef instead of... 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

Family had a late night gathering and was hungry! This restaurant was a hit! They accommodated our large group very quickly. Our servers took care of refills and any other requests without reminders. 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
