Ok so the spicy shrimo tacos with Jalapeño slaw are phenomenal. Add some guacamole and salsa and it's a happy meal.

Stopped in before heading to the stadium. Smallish tacos, but big on flavor. We tried a variety with the fish and shrimp being favorites, but the steak and local were very good as well. The only one we would skip next time is the chicken.

This is a great choice for a casual dinner. You place your order at the counter and take a number back to your seat. The buffalo tacos were delicious and we also really liked the queso. One of my favorite places in Lexington.

This was my first time visiting and it blew my expectations. It was delicious and very fast, I think I got my food like under 3 minutes after ordering. I’d love to come again sometime!

This is probably my favorite place to get a relaxed dinner with amazing food. The brunch on the weekends is also great with $1 mimosas!
