After hearing this place featured in a podcast, I knew that we had to stop here! One of the details that intrigued me from the podcast is their use of Kentucky Proud cornmeal from Weisenberger Mills to make the tortillas. Growing up eating Mexican food before it was fashionable, I rarely, if ever, had fresh tortillas. Getting to have some made with quality local ingredients sounds like a winner. We stopped here for an early supper after some grocery shopping in Lexington. Hubby ordered a burrito, while I had a couple of tacos with those house made tortillas. We both enjoyed our food and want to return.

Excellent authentic Mexican (NOT Tex-Mex) food and excellent service. You order at the counter and they bring it to you.

Service was quick and tacos were delicious! I went with two friends and we each wanted to order more tacos after our first round. A+

Got three tacos, carnitas, steak, and chicken. Got one (large) quesadilla, steak and cheese only for the wife--massive. Excellent tacos and excellent quesadilla. Will be back.

Taste it’s always good. Place it’s old and low decorated but food tastes great all the time

Fresh tortillas. Delicious tacos. Nothing more to say. Absolutely the best tacos I've had outside of Mexico. Give it a try and never turn back

Finally made a trip out here after hearing it was great. I was skeptical. I'm from California so I've been pretty disappointed by Mexican food in Lexington. I'm happy to report that this isn't the case at Ramirez. I had the grande tacos and they were phenomenal. Salsa could've been better but that is a minor quibble. Truly incredible food. I will be back!

Very friendly people in a authentic restaurant. I got a chicken burrito, which was similar to size of Chipotle's, but half the price, and had much more flavor. You also don't have to wait like you would at Chipotle, due to all the delivery services and online orders they are preparing. You have the option to dine in, or they will pack it to go. I will be back!

When you make the tortillas in house, you end up with a whole different level of taco. The tortillas alone here are worth the trip. If you order the tacos, the lengua (beef tongue) is some of the best I've ever had. You cannot be in Lexington without trying their food.

This is a small family-owned gem of a restaurant. Hidden away in a strip mall on Alexandria Drive, don't let the look of the place fool you. It is a must-try mexican food haven. Their burritos and tacos are can't- miss treats and I can't help but get a bowl of pozole soup when the weather is cooler. Do yourself a favor and visit this place...and while you're at it, grab a bag of Chicharron and some house-made tortillas to go. You can thank me later!

I love this place! If I am in Lexington for work, this is where I am eating lunch. Not a fancy restaurant. The tacos are great and the burritos are even better! I get the small ones so I can get a few different flavors. I love the local vibe this place has.

Authentic Mexican, unbeatable taste and price. Check it out!


Delicious, juicy street tacos for CHEAP in Lexington. Staff are kind. I go here regularly and love the food.
