“Good Mexican Food”
Review of Muchacho Alegre

Muchacho Alegre
Ranked #33 of 82 Restaurants in Lexington

The location, right beside the hotel I was staying at, couldn't have been better. Plus, as a hotel guest, you get a 10% discount on your meal by showing your key card. The food itself was good but not exciting and, even though the restaurant wasn't busy, it still took a while to get drink refills and to pay my bill. That being said, the servers were friendly. If you are looking for Mexican food in the Lexington area, this is a good choice.

Mexican food menu was large with many choices and good prices. It was also conveniently located near our hotel.

On Rt. 11 just off Exit 198 of Rt. 81 north of Lexington, this relatively new restaurant never disappoints us The complimentary chips and dip are very good and refilled on request. There is an extensive menu including fresh fish chicken, and steaks, and numerous Mexican dishes. Our favorite is the huge enchilada platter with beef, chicken, cheese and bean flavors. The chef uses plenty of sauce and the plate is topped with guacamole and/ or sour cream by request. Diners at a neighboring table had sizzling fajitas that looked fabulous--want to try them.

The decor is a little tacky but the food and service made up for it, and hey, I like tacky !!! Am moving to this area and will be eating here again and again over the years. Would not hesitate to bring friends.

This restaurant has been open less than a year (the site apparently was a pancake house for years whose demise was greatly mourned!). The manager was very friendly and attentive, and even though they were short-staffed that night, our food came in a reasonable time and was delicious. We often eat at Mexican restaurants because my husband is a vegetarian. There were plenty of options for us both, the decor and atmosphere were both pleasant, and the food was really good.
