Reviews for EL CID

El CID is now our go to Mexican restaurant in Lex! It was absolutely phenomenal. The atmosphere, food, and waiters and waitresses are everything you could ask for and more. Shannon was our waitress and she treated us like royalty. You can tell she takes pride in the restaurant and loves her job. Be prepared to order because you do order your food before you’re seated. We will be back time and time again!

Traveling from out of town and grabbed take out from EL CID. We loved it! Fantastic authentic cuisine with a large menu. Moderate amount of indoor and outdoor seating. Decor is modern/hip meets Mexicana diner. The service was also great, both on the phone and at pick up! Highly recommend.

I had an amazing experience at El Cid today! My Food was OUTSTANDING! My wife and I tried the Quesa Tacos. Hands down best Tacos in Lexington. Customer service was even better! Our server today Jackson was on top of everything we needed, super friendly, and a great suggestion on the quesa tacos. We will be back on Wednesday to try the 85 Cent margaritas!!
