Mi-Mexico, Rincon Mexicano, and Jalapenos
Believe it or not, Lexington has some of the BEST authentic Mexican food you will find north of the border. For many, many years now immigrants from all over Central America have been coming to central Kentucky to work in the tobacco fields as migrant workers. Over the years many of these workers have permanently moved to the region with their families. Some of these families have opened up restaurants featuring fare from their homelands. Mi-Mexico, Rincon Mexicano, and Jalapenos are all wonderful examples of restaurants that have started this way. Each offers very good food and drink. You cannot go wrong by dining at any one of these establishments.
Favorite Dish: Fajitas!
deSha's is located in the victorian village and features southern and american cooking. It offers good food and great views of downtown Lexington.
The Arby's in my hometown has good "chicken strips." This one had a very greasy chicken sandwich. They made each one fresh but I did not like it.
