What a find!
Based on reviews on Tripadvisor, we requested Fajitas “El Charro” for two for takeout. We simply loved the dish – with a mixture of steak, chicken and large shrimp in a tasty sauce, refried beans, lettuce, guac and pico. We will order again!

Friendly atmosphere and Delicious food. Today, they handed out Free cheese sauce which my husband enjoyed! The inside has a modern and chic feel to the restaurant. The salsa flavor is smokey, light spicy and hint of lemon. Our first time and I'll definitely come back!

Good quality and quantity. Attentive friendly servers are always ready with more chips and salsa. Several very good dishes, including shrimp specialties. 4 stars because the recent re-make of its interior lost the intimate nooks and crannies in favor of wide-open seating, no doubt easier to manage but less atmospheric. Still, we go h ... read more

I’ve been a regular at El Charo’s for several years now and in my opinion they have the best Mexican food in Lexington. And great margaritas. How anyone can say their food is average is a mystery to me. And I’ve always had great service. First it was Martin, who has now moved to their new location. And now Betty. She is friendly, att ... read more

I had a quesadilla fajita with a side order of beans. On my delivery order I asked for no pico de gallo or sour cream, I got both but they were in like a side dish.

We ate here for Crave taco week and I must say they were delicious. We added on a chicken burrito for 5.99 and it was excellent as well. Also we were there for happy hour and we each had a cool mexican beer for $2. The staff were very courteous and the food came out really quickly. I think this is my new favorite Mexican food place!

Taco Week, so we went to El Charro. The usual chips and salsa came to the table and accompanied our Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita. The salsa wasn't as spicy as I like, but I was hungry.
