the covid thing going on so I thought I would take advantage of the website says contactless curbside delivery. NOPE... I had to mask up and go in. The chimichangas aren't crisp or even a touch of deep fried. The salsa taste like Marinara off a stale pizza. Do yourself a favor and go to taco hell across the street. Flavor is lacking and even the guacamole was not fresh tasting. Cold rice and beans too 3 stars because it was fast and the hostess was decent

Our Airbnb host recommended this place to us and we were not disappointed. First, let me say service was excellent. Multiple employees stopped by to assist us with our requests. Drinks were topped off; chips and salsa were refilled liberally. Top notch. Food was very, very good. Portion sizes are quite large. We may be back before the trip is over!

Salsa is excellent. Sparkling clean. Fast courteous service and very good eats.


Need to listen to orders better meat and cheese only means meat and cheese only. Wow

Won't be going back. The waiter was rude, our drinks wasn't made right, he tried to overcharge me and caught an attitude because I said we wasn't ordering food after I specifically told him we wasn't going to order the very first time.

We LOVE this place! The food is always hot and fresh. You get more for your money here. Sometimes my husband and I can share our meal, unlike other places where your fajitas looks like a child’s meal. We like seeing the same friendly faces too, like Leon, he’s always been such a good waiter for us. Polite, kind, keeps our drinks filled, and talks with us too. We really enjoy the atmosphere here, clean, well decorated but not over the top, with a good bar. You won’t regret your visit to El Mariachi, Lexington, KY.

Wonderful service and the food was delicious! Walked over from the Holiday Inn and today was the first day they were open. Margaritas was great!

Best Mexican Restaurant in town. Tacos Campeche are my favorite! Margaritas are very smooth and very strong! Excellent service.

Greatest Mexican restaurant in Lexington hands down. The nachos are mouth watering. Service is always great.

All the tacos were mixed. They just lay out tortillas and put the meat on top. The worst mexican food I've had. The meat in the fajita was bone dry. It really says something when there is a picture from another resturant on there page saying there's good food next door.

Been here several times. Always good service and good food. Salsa is good especially taste, but could be thicker in my opinion. Chips were very good and not the least bit greasy. Seafood enchiladas are very good. The burrito supreme with chicken was also fine. Staff are friendly and attentive. Cost is reasonable although at the upper range for quality and quantity. Out of my normal range of frequent restaurants to patronize but when in the area a definitely go to for Mexican.

Food was good. It was enjoyable. I would go back, but nothing phenomenal about the food. Lacked a little flavor especially for Mexican. Great friendly service.
