We came to El Charro for a girlfriends 21st Birthday. We had so much fun and the food was excellent! Most of all the service from Bety and the staff made it perfect. Thank you all so much for hosting us. Can’t wait to return - definitely ask for Bety💘 ... read more

We had a birthday dinner tonight and forgot to call to let them know about a large party, some people ended up having to arrive 1.5 hours late and still the service was incredible and they were very understanding of our situation! Bety was an incredible server and super attentive to our needs. Food and margs came quickly once we orde ... read more

Rodrigo was beyond fantastic and made the experience above anything ever expected! The food was flavorful along with every beverage we tried. They were willing to help find menu items that would bring you the best experience and the service was great. Will return frequently!

Went out for a friends 21st, and was so lucky to have Bety as our server! She was very sweet and attentive, and the food was amazing as well. I would highly recommend the Chile Verde dish! I will be back again.

Overall the food was good, but I wish the shrimp tacos had been grilled, no breaded. Or at least noted that on the menu. The guac was excellent. The chili relleno is decent. My boy friend had the chicken tacos and liked them. The quesadilla was good too. I'd definitely eat here again, and it's a big plus that it delivers to Versaille ... read more

Not a bad place
We were in the area, so decided to stop and give it a try. We were seated quickly, ordered drinks which came quickly. The food took a long time to come out of the kitchen considering the few people who were there; but good portions and hot. Would consider coming back in if we're in the area.

The food is always quick and well seasoned. Large portions. The margaritas are delicious and worth the money. The margarita flight is my favorite.

Hands down best Mexican restaurant in Lexington. From fajitas and margaritas to chori pollo (amazing). 10/10 recommend. Get the margarita flight and save room for dessert - chimi cheesecake!

Mainstream Mexican food. Nothing wrong with the food. Carnitas were good, chimichanga kinda dry. Service ok , but they were busy.
scprotz via google.com - May 5, 2022
Despite their being extremely busy, I've never felt so cared for when ordering at a restaurant! Menu is a little different for a Mexican place. My only suggestion is to add some pops of red to the walls to warm the décor up a bit. Definitely recommended.

Ron Reimer via google.com - Mar 16, 2022
We really like the food. However, the atmosphere feels very cold. They recently remodeled and while it's all new, it's all dark and gray inside. Not sure why they went that route.

Decent Mexican cuisine. Newly decorated and renovated. Employees are happy and helpful and prices are reasonable. Lots of drink specials and typically no wait.

Bety was very friendly. The food was amazing and the spicy margaritas were spot on! I had the fiery steak- make sure you can eat the heat before ordering this one! It was flavorful as well as extremely spicy. My husband had the mahi-mahi tacos. He loved them. We will definitely be back and ask for Bety!

New Favorite!
This was our first visit to El Charro, and since we live in the Hamburg area we decided to try the newest location on a Saturday night. Outstanding! Happy Hour is 4-7 every day and that gives you 2 for 1 house margaritas. Don’t be afraid of those; they use a better than expected tequila that my wife was quite pleased with. As for the ... read more

What a find!
Based on reviews on Tripadvisor, we requested Fajitas “El Charro” for two for takeout. We simply loved the dish – with a mixture of steak, chicken and large shrimp in a tasty sauce, refried beans, lettuce, guac and pico. We will order again!

Friendly atmosphere and Delicious food. Today, they handed out Free cheese sauce which my husband enjoyed! The inside has a modern and chic feel to the restaurant. The salsa flavor is smokey, light spicy and hint of lemon. Our first time and I'll definitely come back!

Good quality and quantity. Attentive friendly servers are always ready with more chips and salsa. Several very good dishes, including shrimp specialties. 4 stars because the recent re-make of its interior lost the intimate nooks and crannies in favor of wide-open seating, no doubt easier to manage but less atmospheric. Still, we go h ... read more

I’ve been a regular at El Charo’s for several years now and in my opinion they have the best Mexican food in Lexington. And great margaritas.

She is friendly, att ... read more

I had a quesadilla fajita with a side order of beans. On my delivery order I asked for no pico de gallo or sour cream, I got both but they were in like a side dish.
