Food & Drink
South of the Border
Lexington’s Mexican restaurants collectively promise a lively atmosphere, attentive service and bold flavors. Although they have similarities, each spot has its own key features — fresh guacamole prepared tableside in a mortar and pestle, a specialty drink menu with a tropical-island vibe or a charming outdoor patio with flowering planters. If you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other occasion, these restaurants treat you like royalty. The Eatery does things a bit different in Uptown with a counter-service approach where you build your own burrito, bowl or quesadilla.
