Abrupt waiter and bad food. This used to be one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Lexington. I don't know if there has been a change in owners or kitchen staff. Very unpleasant experience.

This used to be one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Lexington, but the recent ratings are right and it has went down hill. Too dark and health dept. inspection rating low. Food was OK bu y atmosphere leaves much to desire.
