Great mexican dishes, homemade tomato sauces, great margaritas. There is no skimping on the amount of food they serve you, all reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Days Inn, where this restaurant is located. Ate lunch there on a Saturday. Not crowded at all. Service...GOOD. Food EXCELLENT. I got a meal with a Taco, Burrito and Chili Relleno... the wife got a Nacho Supreme. We were very pleased with our food. Then got some Fried Ice Cream for desert. We will definitely eat... More

Ever hopeful for some genuine good Mexican food, we once again took a chance on this somewhat remote location (unless heading for the highway or out-of-town). The meal was quite forgettable in pretty much every way, even with pleasant service. The food offerings seemed to lack flavor and we had the sense of meals out of cans, cartons, or the... More

My wife and I live near Lexington and we have lunch at Muchacho Alegre almost every Sunday after church and occasionally have dinner there as well. We are very fond of the place -- always have excellent meals. Furthermore, the portions are generous and from our perspective the prices are reasonable. We always have good, friendly service and we recommend... More

We had two shrimp dishes (Camaron Chipotle and Camarones a la Diabla) that were very good. Spicy but not too hot for us. Plenty of shrimp cooked well. Location is convenient to roads and hotels.

We went to this restaurant for lunch and found it to be family friendly with excellent service and a wonderful menu. The guacamole was exceptionally tasty. It is also very reasonably priced for the family budget.

While I would not suggest this is the very best Mexican restaurant you will ever go to, I think you will be pleased with the service, quality, amount of food and price of your meal at Muchachos Allegros. This is a nice clean no-frills restaurant right off I-81 on Exit 195. It was a basic Aunt Sarah's Pancake House in... More

We went here after seeing it had decent reviews and it was close to our hotel. The food was good, although we all felt they were skimpy on the cheese in all our dishes, and what is Mexican food without yummy melted cheese goodness? But other than that, the service was great and the reviewer that said don't judge a... More

This was recommended to my wife and I at our Bed and Breakfast and we are happy we ate here. From the outside, it would be easy to miss it or think it wouldn't be worth eating at. You couldn't be more mistaken. Start with the chips and salsa, they have a unique white dip, some combination of sour cream,... More

This restaurant wasn't much to look at from the outside, so we were skeptical. However, once inside, we experienced quick, friendly service and delicious food! Would definitely go again!
