Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good customer service and great food. Menu is extensive and the burrito's are huge! Gets busy in the evenings so be prepared for a wait after 5 but soooo worth it!

Come ready to eat. The portions are large enough to share. We love the seafood fajitas. They are generous with the chips and homemade salsa.

With all of the good to great Mexican food choices around, drive a little farther for much much better. Lexington is chock full of them such as Local Taco and El Gran Taco.

I’ve been here twice and ordered the same thing each time. It went from bad to worse. Both times I ordered the beef taco salad. The first time it arrived sitting in a pool of water and grease, making everything soggy. Thought it might have...been an ‘off night’ in the kitchen. I declined the salad. A few months later we decided to try it again but this time there were problems from the start. The salsa was watery and the chips were stale. I ordered the taco salad again and it arrived sitting in a pool of grease...YUK! I declined it and from that moment on their service was non existent. My hubby’s meal looked as if they had thrown the food onto the plate from the other side of the room. The meat was in a very diluted watery sauce and the rice was clumped together and was old. Never again! Don’t waste your money here!More

I don't recommend this place at all - I am usually pretty forgiving, but everything we ordered had issues. Start with the chips and salsa: basically stale crumbs, not even big enough to scoop salsa onto the chip; for my husband, beef taco salad: they...didn't bother to drain the grease from the beef - his plate was completely covered in grease making the taco shell soggy (wish I had taken a picture of it); I got the grilled shrimp nachos: again, stale nachos - the grilled shrimp was good, but the rest of it was dry and pretty awful - the rice was clumped together and appeared to be leftover from yesterday. Also, ants on our table. The good news is the drinks were good and cold. We mentioned our unhappiness with the food to our very unfriendly waitress and there was no attempt whatsoever to apologize or to deduct anything from our bill. On the way out I asked the hostess if there was a manager I could speak to and she looked around and said, "No, but I can get one of the waitresses." I said,"Never mind, I will just post a review online." We absolutely will not return to this place!!More

I have been a regular since they have been open. Too much good food to mention. If you like hot, they have a great salsa picosa.

I've been there several times, it's pretty much always a good Mexican style meal, I've only been back in town for about 3 years...and the whole time I've complained that we have nowhere to get a GOOD burger and fries. Well, this Mexican restaurant is...the place ! as well as the basic Mexican menu, they have got an incredible burger and fries...and it's only about $8.00More

Don Señor offers very good Mexican Food - a delight for Cynthiana residents. But service, restaurant layout being chopped up, result in slow service. The service is not bad, the layout makes it difficult to provide very good service. This restaurant needs an overhaul -...a freshening up of inside fixtures - but this may be difficult to sell with the necessary higher prices this would cause to the locals...More

Was a slow time of the day, 4:30 pm so we were there with only one other table. Server was quickly there and took drink order. I asked for a couple of minutes to read the rather extensive menu. Had to flag him from behind...the bar to get him to the table to take our order. Ordered a "Colorado" Chicken Quesadilla and beef fajitas. Delivery time was prompt I never saw such a Quesadilla. It was a flour tortilla with some chopped chicken inside along with some kind of cheese but..........covered in some kind of red sauce. Not grilled at all and kinda mushy. Was OK but not at all what I expected. Would not order it again. Fajitas were ok but I think the beef had been pre cooked and then made into a Fajita. Pretty tough but the flavor was good. BTW the decor is different and actually kinda pleasant. All the booths have some kind of Mexican cutout in the back and is very colorful. Does not make the food any better but is pleasing.More
