The service was very disjointed - a huge disconnect between staff, servers, bar and the kitchen but the food is worth coming for another visit. The portions were plentiful, the food made from scratch and delicious. On a Tuesday night - they haven't quite worked...More

Portions are huge. Very good homemade tortilla chips. Salsa very bland, but they have a selection of hot sauces in the table. Excellent veggie fajitas. Fish tacos were OK. Very friendly, accommodating service.

My wife and I tried El Mariachi for the first time after moving to this side of town. The salsa has a kick which was awesome! Then my entree was the fajita chicken chimichanga. Absolutely perfect. This is a place for delicious food. Well done!!

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. It looked busy but we soon found out why. The food was delicious, the service was quick. Some of the best Mexican food we have eaten. Prices were reasonable.

The food is ok, but their Mango margaritas are the best in Lexington. Few parking spots during happy hour.
