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.

Just finished a 10 our driving day and got our room at the Staybridge which is walking distance to here. We are avid Mexican food eaters so this was very good, fast, flavorful

We go here at least three times a month. Great atmosphere for family or with friends. The food and service is always on point regardless of how busy they are. We always have the burrito ranchero, the verde dinner, or chimichanga. The drinks are good during happy hour, not watered down like most places. Bon appetite

First of all I want to say I'm from Texas so I'm kind of picky. I agree with the person who said the chicken was better than the beef. I had chicken tamales. They were ok. My husband had the combo plate. He did not like the red sauce. He said everything tasted the same and it was all beef.... More
