Go to lunch spot. Prices are reasonable, and the remodel is so nice. Our waiter is always prompt and attentive.

Amazing food and the nicest people working in any restaurant in Lexington. We haven't been inside for several months but have enjoyed all of the take that we can take! You can never go wrong with anything on the menu.

El sazón de mi platillo fue sensacional. El lugar amplio y acogedor aunque le hacen falta por ahí algunos detalles. Muy buenos precios,meseros muy atentos y serviciales. Estoy convencida de regresar. Lo recomiendo ampliamente.

Amazing food and authentic! The service was wonderful! I had the chicken fajita chimichanga and my husband had the pork Chile verde. My husband is from southern Cali and this is one of the best Mexican restaurants he has been to. We will definitely be back when we return to Lexington.

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. It wasn't as tasty as I thought it would be I think it was the quesadilla bread that didn't mix with the fajitas stuff so that really threw me off. The beans were a littl ... read more

We ate here for Crave taco week and I must say they were delicious. We added on a chicken burrito for 5.99 and it was excellent as well. Also we were there for happy hour and we each had a cool mexican beer for $2. The staff were very courteous and the food came out really quickly. I think this is my new favorite Mexican food place!

Taco Week, so we went to El Charro. The usual chips and salsa came to the table and accompanied our Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita. The salsa wasn't as spicy as I like, but I was hungry. The Margarita had good heat, but they forgot to salt the rim. The taco choice was limited to al Pastor or vegetarian, so you know which I chose. They w ... read more

Thought we'd give this place a chance last night since the new Mexican restaurant up the road had just opened and didn't have their liquor license quite yet.

Service was slow but the woman who seemed like the owner was great. She really tried to make things right. Food was average. I ordered the enchiladas verdes. They were good.

Ok, I've been a fan a Mexican cuisine for more years than I can remember.  The Midwest is filled with your choice on every city block.  I will have to say this is one of the very best I've had.  I cannot speak to the true authenticity, but I can say for the typical Mexican-American fair, El Charro is on the top of my list.

Was definitely better when we'd eaten in, in the past. Staff and atmosphere were great. Either their heart isn't in it now, or it just doesn't hold up with DoorDash. Food was incredibly bland this time round and for $6 they don't even give you dressing with their side salad. Forgot my son's fries too. Disappointing, but when things g ... read more

Delicious food.  I had a steak burrito and a steak quesadilla.  Both great.

However, I have a couple notes on delivery.
