Now open in Jenkins, KY, by the city swimming pool. A beautiful wooden home has been converted into a restaurant. Lovely wooden beams inside. The chimichangas were great. Good service. Reasonable price.

“Tasty Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

My friends and I stopped at the Mexican restaurant in Whitesburg to enjoy some delicious Mexican food and watch the World Cup while having lunch. From the moment we entered in the restaurant, a friendly staff member welcomed us and provided great service during our stay. I ordered a delicious pollo con aroz and I loved it. Thank you for tasty food and for a wonderful experience

“A Taste of Culture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

I was extremely impressed with this place. I'm from an area where several Mexican restaurants are located, and I enjoy then quite well. However, Las Pena brings you across the border for a short time with some delicious food.

They serve some great salsa and chips with your own bowl to pour your salsa in. The menu has everything from nachos, taco salad which was what I had and was delicious, or even chicken chimichangas. With four pages of choices, any person can find what they are looking for. Plus, they have TVs for viewing the World Cup which was great and the service was decent. Well worth your time and money.
