Awesome place to eat! I highly recommended it!
Taco Tuesday can’t beat the $1 tacos. The food is excellent the portions are generous. Very enjoyable
Had a fast lunch. Food was hot and tasty.

One of the places that I won’t miss every time we visit Lexington. They really have good food and margarita. The Suppa pollo and they’re Cinco de Mayo dip is amazing. Highly recommend this place.
Love it!!!! My fav math deals
One of my favorite places in Lexington for margaritas and good music!
Great food and atmosphere! Highly recommend!
Great drinks and fun! Do recommend, fun time!
Wynn loved celebrating cinco de mayo at Cinco de Mayo Richmond Rd!!
My husband and I go here regularly & love it, we usually get the fajiats Jalisco for ONE and we still have food to take home. love the chips & salsa. great drinks. More...
Friendly staff, cozy clean environment with pool tables & old school arcade games, quick service, good food
Great drink specials and food- only place in Lexington where you can find molcajete. My absolute favorite item! Friendly staff and good service!
it was very nice, and the food and the service, thank you
Amy Marie Short
We love Cinco de Mayo and eat here every chance we get. Great food, big portions and great people! It doesn’t get any better!
Your typical, run of the mill, Mexican restaurant situated right on campus. The chips and salsa are good, and entrees are large portions for what you pay for. Service can sometimes be slow, but overall it's a good stop if you're wanting some typical Mexican food. More...
great food and even better scenery
I am not a Mexican food aficionado. I went here with co-workers, so I have very little to compare here. That being said, the Steak Vera Cruse had plentiful shrimp, the greens were fresh and the sweet tea was wonderfully sweet. I liked it for my first taste of Mexican food. More...

increíble comida y buen servicio a los mejores precios , las mejores margaritas en Lexington,,
Michael W. Smith
Great food, & great service
It was amazing food and staff were so friendly. We had faijatas for two and had leftovers for the following day. My toddler loved it!! Highly recommend!!
Gotta say this place has a special place in my heart. My friends and I would go here all the time because the vibe is so fun. They have great music playing which always makes the eating more fun. The staff is super friendly and understanding, once they got the order wrong but were super nice and fixed it right away. The food is your general mexican food you find around the United States, they have a nice flavor but there is no wow factor that gets me excited. I tried a lot of stuff on the menh and I have to say the chicken street tacos are my favorite, the chicken is cooked really well and they really stack your plate up. I have to say that you will definitely get your moneys worth here. Now lets talk about the drinks, they have some great margaritas, of you need a place in Lexington for Margaritas then this is where you go, they are smooth, refreshing, and no shy of alcohol haha. More...
Cinco De Mayo is just what I expected; basic Tex-mex food and drinks. You have your typical enchiladas/tacos/burritos/tamales with rice and beans, chips and salsa and some basic latino-style decorations and music. That said, I still really enjoy the place. whether alone or with others, I usually get seated quickly and place my order soon after. While their basic menu is predictable, there's no reason to stick just to what's safe. There's other great options, including fajitas, seafood and vegetarian options, and America-Mexican fusion.I go mostly for Taco Tuesday when beef or chicken tacos are $1 each all daily. They start you off with chips and salsa, and I usually get iced tea to drink. The tacos come loaded with your choice of meat, lettuce and cheese. I add some of their salsa and I'm good to go. Service is good, food is fine, and it's just down the street from me. I've missed the last few Tuesdays with extra-busy work days, but I'll be back soon to Cinco De Mayo. More...
Fajitas were great! Very busy, but, service was great!
buen ambiente buena comida y excelente atención se los recomiendo
My favorite restaurant period. I like it so much, my wife tells me I'm gonna turn into bean! lol
Best Mexican restaurant in Lexington. Augusto is the best bartender in Lexington! Can't pass up 2 for 1 margaritas
Best Mexican in town. Quality, freshness, flavor, quick friendly service. Our fave in Lex and have tried them all. No other is close.
Great food. Good prices. Nice people. We’ve been here a few times and will keep coming back.
J Jeremy Smith
Excellent two-fer's (two for the price of one) Margaritas! Very friendly staff!!
Gus is the best! He makes the best margaritas and gives the best service!! Also those tacos are pretty good...
This is my favorite Mexican restaurant, the food is very delicious, service is fast & friendly, great environment... love the fajitas my mission is to try everything on the menu & I know it won't disappoint! Highly recommend this place! Definitely will be going back! Great job. More...
Every time we come here we get the best service from Agusto, he is the reason we come here weekly. Most of the time we come two times! He is very attentive and goes out of his way to make sure his guest are given the best service possible, I would recommend you sit with him in the bar area anytime you are in! More...
The food was really good, will be back for sure! Good service also.
This is the location you want to come to if you like to people watch. Especially on Taco Tuesday. Being close to campus and always a favorite of college students the food here was on par with what I'm used to at the one on Richmond Rd. The service was not what I would expect but I'll let that slide being the first time I was here on Taco Tuesday and they were pretty full. More...
Very good food! The restaurant is clean with a great atmosphere and the staff is friendly! Our server Josh was very attentive.
This place has awesome margaritas and the food was great had fajita. Very generous portions. Will definitely be back. Great atmosphere and kid friendly .
Awesome food, great service, and very friendly. we will being eating there again..
Awesome food and service,,, great atmosphere,,,,
Solid place to get 2 for 1 margaritas, free chips and salsa, and a reasonably priced meal before a UK basketball game (Cinco de Mayo is walking distance to Rupp Arena!) I don't eat meat and so cannot attest to the meat options, but I typically order a side of beans, a side of rice, and a side of corn tortillas which comes out to just under $7 and is surprisingly satisfying. More...
Juan Carlos Flores
Margaritas 2X1 n the best burritos, (Jalisco Burrito) it’s the best !!!!
I love Mexican food and Cinco de Mayo is the first Lexington restaurant to do it right. I wanted Mexican food, not "upscale Taco Bell." Good Mexican food is what I received from Cinco de Mayo. Not to mention the staff there is also very friendly. Keep up the great work guys!!! Don't waste your time going to the other places, visit here for the best food. More...
Stephanie Collins Gullett

Heather Hamblin Johnson
I had the Jalisco Burrito which has shrimp, steak, chicken and chorizo inside. Covered with cheese sauce and it was wonderful! First visit and won't be the last.
Really liked the fresh chips and really good salsa. Also the $1 tacos on Taco Tuesday were very good. The offer a choice of ground beef or shredded chicken. Both are very tasty. I'll definitely be back! More...
Cathy Quillin Krajenke
Great food - fresher than most Mexican places. Extra clean too.
Great food & service the staff is supper friendly
Burrito Jalisco is the best burrito in town ,you all will have to try it !
Man the shredded chicken tacos on taco Tuesday are so dope !
Really good food only thing that is really annoying is when you get chips and salsa the salsa bowl is half full it is never filled up like it's supposed to be.
Stumbled upon Cinco de Mayo literally by accident while visiting Lexington for the NCAA track & field Regional. Parked the car and started walking towards a different establishment, but chanced upon this one and decided what the heck. It looked very inviting with the twinkle lights in the trees surrounding the outdoor eating area. We decided to eat indoors after a long day in the sun. Our party of 4 was seated at a booth. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was pleasant with piped in music and wall-mounted TVs with a Batman movie playing. The waitress was very sweet. We gave her our drink orders then sampled the chips and salsa, delicious! The salsa had a nice kick (but not too much). I ordered shrimp enchiladas, my f-i-l ordered the shrimp burrito. Apparently we were on a shrimp kick! My husband loves a seafood chimichanga that he gets at home, but there was nothing similar on the menu. The steak fajita chimichanga sounded good so he ordered that. My son had ordered just the regular ground beef chimi but changed his order when he heard his dad's upgraded choice. Still in the mood for seafood, my husband asked the waitress if shrimp could be added to the steak fajita chimichanga and she said sure, so, everyone was happy with their order. We had gone through 2 baskets of chips when the food arrived so the service was about right, not fast and not slow. Everyone was happy with their order. My shrimp enchiladas were REALLY good. I ate every bite. The rice and beans sides were quite good, as well. Although I didn't finish either of those as the 3 shrimp enchiladas and pre-meal chips/salsa were plenty, I was full!We were pleased with our visit to Cinco de Mayo. Prices were reasonable, service was good, food was really good. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to visitor's to Lexington, and if you live in Lexington and haven't tried it, you definitely should!Gracias Amigos! More...
First trip and loved it. Great service and the queso was delicious! They weren't very crowded, but I will be back!
Vershanda Weathers Jackson
A great place and very nice staff. My family and I plan on going back.
I have been going to this restaurant at this location since they have opened. I go there every Friday night and it is always a great experience each time! I have been to almost all of Lexington's Mexican restaurants and this is the only one that I have really liked. I highly recommend the bean dip and chimichangas! Great food and great service! More...
Ate lunch there today with my Granddaughter Akayla and ggbaby Aiden James... The food is really good ����
Very good. Super friendly staff and a step up in quality and taste from most local competitors. Great job!!
Great Staff! The Food Runner is an amazing employee!! Good looking guy
Almost as good as the cinco downtown!! Shout out to juan!
My favorite place to eat with my family. Staff is always pleasant and so kind to us! Food is great too! My fave is the tamales! Yummy �
awesome place just right down the road and ive eaten and will continue to eat here, fantastic service, yummy food
Huge portions, for the reasonable prices. My companion was charged for something that was included, as an extra. The staff quickly made it right.
Jessica K Hall
Absolutely love this place! One of the best Mexican restaurants I've ever eaten at! I will always be a loyal customer!
Amy Hiatt Lasher
We loved it. 4 adult meals, 2 child plates, drinks and two sides of perfect guacamole for under $60!
Very good very good service. Bud light ,and miller light pitchers $5
We decided to try this place a couple months ago. First visit: We ordered the taco salad but we didn't notice there would be green peppers in the meal so we didn't tell them to hold the green peppers before ordering. When the orders came out, we realized it had green peppers in the meal. The waiter noticed the grimace and asked what was wrong. We explained that one of us couldn't have the bell peppers. We offered to just pick them out. He insisted he would take the order back and he had the meal completely re-done. The food was quickly prepared and brought to the table. It was delicious. I believe it was in that moment, we decided we'd continue to come back and we've just kept coming back ever since. This place is great! They always prepare wonderful tasty authentic food. The service is outstanding. We try something different everytime and we've not been disappointed yet. I recommend this place to everyone! More...
When we're in the mood for Mexican, this is our obvious choice! The service is always good and fast, food always comes out hot and fresh, and the margaritas are amazing! Love us some Cinco!!
This is my fave Mexican restaurant in town! I have became a regular at the Richmond road location. The food is great , customer service is great and they always make me feel welcome. The servers see me so much they even have conversations with me. I even got a customer loyalty card for going so often. I also loved the Selena tribute last year and hope they do one again this year! More...
Amit Al Patel
Very good food. Great location and nice place........
Last night was my first time eating here, and overall it was a good experience. They have a nice, large space with tons of seating which means we still were able to get a seat on a busy Saturday night during the UK game. The margaritas weren't bad, a little light on the tequila for my taste, but at $9.00 for the grande size I can't complain. The chips tasted fresh from the oven and they were quick to provide refills. For the meal, I ordered the "molcajete" which was a delightful concoction of steak, shrimp, chicken, chorizo, mexican cheese and peppers served in a piping hot stone bowl. The "small" size was so enormous that I was compelled to ask twice that I was not mistakenly given the large. It was awesome and I had leftovers for a huge lunch the next day, win! My boyfriend ordered the burrito jalisco, which was easily 3lbs of goodness. Unfortunately he destroyed it before I had a chance to get a photo!Considering how slammed the restaurant was at the time of our visit, I felt our server did a great job of getting us in and out while providing everything we needed. We'll be back! More...
I love their food and their customer service great place to go eat and have some drinks
We went to the new location on Richmond Road and enjoyed great service, excellent food (warm chips, good salsa, and Fajitas Jalisco!), and a fun atmosphere with the usual music and lots of TV's on the walls. As it happened I knew several of the other customers who were also having dinner there tonight. The prices were very reasonable and we'll be back soon. More...
The owner was friendly and the waiter and waitress were smiling and always close by. The food was really good and the atmosphere was great. Our margaritas were very tasty and not to strong or watered down. We will be back More...
Pretty darn good place. Definitely will be back soon. Thanks for the Wonderful service guys. Xx
very good food. good service and great drinks. will be back
Would have gave a 5 if Blue Moon on tap was still an option...My Monday 2 for 1 Spot just not the same without it...The staff is awesome...
I went here last night on a whim with friends. The food was great and so were the margaritas!
Good Mexican food! Have always ordered in from this place so I am not sure how this place must be if you are visiting! Food always tastes good and has always been delivered on time.. My favourite is the chicken and the shrimp fajitas! You should also try the jalepeno poppers.. They taste great too.. More...
Great food at a fair price! The staff is friendly and the margaritas are wonderful!
Sunny Sunshine Toledo
The food was delicious. The Jalepeno Margarita was pretty good but the Patron is a must have. The staff there was friendly and welcoming.
Some of the best Mexican food I have had in Lexington!
My husband and I come to Cinco all the time... My husband and I usually sit in the bar area and have Peter as a server. He makes a fantastic margarita and is so wonderful! This place is delicious and never lets me down! More...
Best Mexican food in town! Service around the bar is phenomenal.
My favorite Mexican restaurant in Lexington! Come on down! Best of everything!
Nice authentic Mexican joint. We had the large cheese dip which was creamy and very good. Chips were warm and great. Service was excellent. Chile Verde was fantastic but the sauce was a bit salty. We will be back! More...
I really hesitate to give CdM four stars because we have had a couple 2-3 star experiences, but the last two times have been superb. We are lucky here in Lexington because there is a great Latino influence. There are amazing panaderias, taquerias, supermercados, roadside trucks and neighborhood bars, oh, and the ubiquitous Mexican-American restaurants (they are usually called "El Rio Grande" or something like that). We have a couple go-to Mexican spots and usually choose CdM for convenience. Tonight was great. The service was fantastic. Skip everything on the menu and just get the molcajete (share between two, hell, three people): steak, chicken, chorizo, shrimp, nopales, cheese, tortillas, "salad" (which in a Mexican restaurant of course means shredded iceberg with globs of sour cream, guacamole and pico). It was probably the best screaming hot stone bowl of food I've ever had. Muchas gracias amigos! More...
I got the tilapia and shrimp lunch, and it was wonderful. Everything was cooked well, and the rice was moist unlike most other Mexican restaurants. The asparagus was so tasty! I also got a chicken burrito, and it was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it all was :). I would definitely come back. More...
Great food great drinks great atmosphere great service
Hector Jimenez Naranjo
Ask for me to be your server..!! I WILL DO MY BEST TO GIVE YOU THE BEST SERVICE..!! ;)
Salsa was awesome, chips were warm not cold, the whole staff was nice and most importantly the food was delicious and affordable. Definitely will be here again.
Went here to enjoy some margaritas on their sizable deck/outdoor area. They have a really nice set up where you don't really notice that you are in the middle of college town on a busy corner. We brought our kiddo and the back area is perfect for the little ones to run around because it is enclosed and open so that you can always keep an eye on them. The staff was very kind and attentive. I would say the food is average Lexington Mexican American fare. Certainly not bad (like some other places I will not mention) but not amazing either. If you really like your margaritas you can go for there blasphemously obscenely sized margarita (which we did!) and you won't even need to order a second round...they're huuuuge! I also tried one of their top shelf margaritas and it was decent. Glad this spot exists, the outdoor area is the real gem of the place. More...
Pretty average but close to my office. One of the guys that works for me likes it here. Generally pretty quick service. There's that overall parking thing but not too bad.
Amazing food, Fun fueled staff. The atmosphere is comfortable and the place is very big, so you probably won't have to wait very long for a place to sit.
Lots of great drink specials keeps me coming back for more. I like to sit in the Bar area with my besties.
Great Mexican food. Ask for Peter. We ordered a pitcher of beer and half way through he brought out fresh frosted glasses. Makes unreal margaritas! Great atmosphere for a game or a casual lunch. California burrito is fantastic as well. Definitely a hidden gem of lexington. Very very enjoyable More...
Best Cantina in Lexington! Peter Deegan rocks the Bar with awesome service. This place has great Mexican food for a great price. Both Owners from the Cozy town of Danville so they take the time to make sure you enjoy their Oasis in Lexington...Go Cats!! Love their Margaritas.!!!!!Kirby Brannock-(Turbo Delicious) More...
Very impressed. Its probably the best mexican restaurant in lexington to date. Its definitely the only one in town where you get choice of corn or flour tortillas, and theirs taste more fresh than other restaurants. Good service, also really good guacamole. More...
My favorite place for margaritas and authentic Mexican cuisine! Love the friendly staff!
Peter in the bar area is excellent! Wonderful service. Very friendly staff! Food is also very good!
Best place ever!!! Love the food. Great drinks. Best margaritas in town. And super friendly bar staff.
Yummy, friendly, and fast! Great addition to downtown.
Love this place! Thanks to all who have recommended it! Only downside is parking. Wish they had their own parking lot or did I miss it?
Perfecto. Had dinner again at Cinco. Sat at the bar and as always enjoyed Peter. He is very knowledgeable and a great bartender. He always has a smile and brings such warmth to the place. Service is always top notch and your treated like a rock star. Go see Peter and enjoy one of the nightly specials. And he will make you a special sangria that taste sooooooooo good. -----02 Oct, 2014----- Cheers. Love this place. Food is good and enjoying sitting at the bar. Peter is a rock star bartender....must check it out. Good pours..... More...
Reva Oliver Thompson
We just love this place! We've been there several times, and the food is great, the drinks are excellent, and the service is friendly. I highly recommend their special Margarita and Mojito. If you're a mushroom-lover, their mushroom quesadilla is wonderful - even my mushroom-hating husband likes it. More...
Uk special was really good
GOOD FOOD. LOVE THE SALSA VERY TASTY
This is definitely our favorite new spot for Mexican food! Margaritas are wonderful, not to mention $2.99. Staff was friendly and service was fast. Nice, relaxing patio as well. Excellent spot in downtown Lexington. More...
The best mexican restaurant in lex!!!
Nice Restaurant. Very clean nice new Mexican restaurant. Service is fast!.. salsa is so so, I've had better. Food is always GREAT! and they give you plenty!!! I had a glass of wine here and it was HUGE. I need to go back to try more items. I've never been disappointed. Patio ROCKS! More...
Sweet place food amazing!!!
Nice place, fresh delicious tex mex, friendly attentive staff.
Standard Mexican, pleased me equally as much as rincon or el toro. Was very clean, well decorated and the staff was great!! Happy to have this within walking distance, especially for the summer! The patio is very nice. More...
Pleasant surprise. So, I was told by my wife that a bunch of us were going out to celebrate a birthday and the choice was Mexican food. "Okay," I thought, "sure, that's fine." I wasn't excited because I really don't care for most of the Mexican cuisine in Lexington, but I was shocked (in a good way) by my experience at Cinco de Mayo. The atmosphere and the appearance of the building was very nice, but the food was excellent. The ingredients were good, it was cooked well (as opposed to overcooked) and it was fresh. Fresh is the key. It didn't seem like everything had been cooked yesterday and re-heated in the microwave. It was really good! More...
This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in town, especially when considering price and quality. The food is all very good and made with high quality ingredients, and the portions are very healthy. The chips and salsa are fresh, and the margaritas are outstanding. Atmosphere was nice and service was friendly. I will definitely be a regular.Another note... it is the same ownership, menu, and quality as the Guadalajara restaurants in Danville, KY (which is so successful in the small town that it has 3 locations in Danville). More...
Great food and service!!! Give it a try!!!
Service was very good. Chips were hot and crisp. Salsa was delicious yet mild in heat. Food was very good and out to the table quickly. Welcome these folks to downtown!
This place rocks! Had a fresh veggie quesadilla and my husband had the chicken fajitas. Both were very delicious! First time I've ever had a jalapeno margarita and I'm definitely going back for some more of those! The service was a great topping on an awesome evening! More...
GREAT. REALLY GOOD FOOD. GOOD PRICE
Amazing customer service an amazing food!!! I ended up having the chicken quesadilla. Which was loaded with vegetables! The chicken was beyond amazing it was not like a normal Mexican restaurants! The chicken that they served melted in my mouth it was not dry or greasy like most places, it was beyond delicious! I also had a pomegranate margarita on the rocks!! Which I might add was beyond delicious as well!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion or just a lovely meal!!! I will be returning and letting everyone I know about it!!!! Great customer service! I honestly felt like I had been coming there numerous times how well we were taking care of! Very impressed over!!! More...
Great fajitas and real cold beer. Sit at the bar it's real nice
Paige Goodlett Brown
Friendly staff and great location. The chips and salsa were yummy and the chicken fajitas are the best I have had in lexington. The chicken is marinated and flavorful. May be a new neighborhood favorite! More...
Good Mexican food and drinks. The place is real nice and the service is excellent
