Durango's is the best Mexican restaurant in Lexington! They have fresh, delicious food, make their own salsa, chips and salad shells daily. If you want the total package in good Mexican food Durango's Mexican Restaurant is the place local Lexington people go! The location is easy to find and plenty of parking and reasonable prices. If you like Mexican food... More

Important note: I am not a big fan of Mexican food, and I enjoy this restaurant. Friendly service, good food, big portions, authentic. Ambiance a little cheesy, but I came to EAT, not to observe the walls. Multiple TVs tuned to sports. Prices slightly less than most sit-down places. Best Mexican restaurant in Lexington (that I have tried, anyway). About... More

This was our first visit to Durango's. When we arrived, we stood inside the door for a moment not knowing if there was a hostess or if it was a sit anywhere arrangement. No sign to direct us. Finally we were able to ask someone who said to sit anywhere. We took our seat and our server immediately took care... More

Food was very good. Salsa, guacamole and tortillas were all freshly made. Atmosphere is average. Sit where you choose because thete is no host/hostess to greet you. Server was friendly and observant. Food came out quickly. Reasonable food prices. Several different songs playing simultaneously from overhead speakers and TV monitors. Would have scored higher if there was a greeter at... More

My husband and I recently stopped in and really enjoyed this food. I ordered the chicken fajitas which tasted very good. The service was friendly but extremely slow and disorganized. The decor is... odd. We'd probably return and get take out.

I love Mexican food. This place is pretty authentic... Nice flavor profiles, friendly atmosphere, but ambiance is kind of funky (not in a good way). We'd return! :-)

We were a group of 5 and I was the first to pay my bill after an evening of god food but horrible service. Paid it in full and left. Then the waiter went back to the others and reported that I had left without paying my beer tab, which was an utter lie, and required them to pay it.... More
