This is not my favorite place in Lexington for Mexican fare. Cheap margaritas don't appeal to me. However, the local Hispanic crowd send to favor it.

My wife was staying at Cardinal Hill and wanted take out most evenings when visiting. The restaurant was between New Circle and Cardinal Hill. I ordered take out and when we went to eat, we were very disappointed in the taste- one of the sides was cold. Someone else may like their seasoning- everyone has their on taste.

Food was good, but it wasn't great. Service was good but it wasn't great. Just a typical Mexican restaurant. I would go again, I enjoyed the visit, but it wasn't anything spectacular... just "good".

Server was friendly. The place was empty when we went in but I don't think they had been open long.... The salsa is pretty much just juice and the chips weren't quite as crunchy as they should have been... Nothing was gross but it's far from my favorite Mexican restaurant.

My wife and I had dinner last night at Clamatos and really enjoyed our meal. Our server was attentive and friendly, and our food was excellent. I had the Carne Tampiquena and my wife had the seafood tacos, both of which were flavorful and made with high quality ingredients. We will definitely be back!

I've only been here once. But I'll be back. I ordered steak fajitas at lunch. AMAZING! So flavorful and a big portion for lunch. My husband and daughter enjoyed their meals but my meal was the star attraction. Delicious! The restaurant is a dive but our food and service were fine.

Have eaten here several times over the years and have never been dissatisfied. Food has always been OK and service excellent. Not sure if the food is authentic Mexican, but I can tell you that the vast majority of the customers are authentic Mexican. Good beer selections, including draft beer.

Always wanted to try this restaurant and regret my decision to try it. With so many average mexican restaurants in town, there's no reason to go this low. The salsa tasted like canned tomato sauce and the lime margaritas were yellow and flavorless. The service was sub par and the food was barely edible. Just being honest....

Thank Joe L
