Best food!

COVID UPDATE: They do curbside pickup! Very attentive, very helpful 💜 While noisy on weekend nights due to the multiple t.v.s (various sports which is great), the food and the folks are amazing! Never had a bad meal yet. I consider this my neighborhood joint and recommend it for all.

My wife and I ate there last night and it was good.  Meatloaf was excellent so were the mushroom caps and banana pudding. Eleanor our waitress was great always like it and we'll keep going there.

This was a solid place. The catfish was fried perfectly, and, after some salt and pepper, the mashed potatoes and white bean soup were great as well. My girlfriend had the shrimp and grits, which were also done very well. Good food coupled with great drinks and equally great service is a recipe for return business. I'd go here ag ... read more

The food was delicious! We ordered the catfish and that was so tender and not dry at all. The breading was seasoned to perfection. Our waitress was so sweet and very patient with us. Also, the cocktails were reasonably priced, with a wide selection to choose from. Overall this was a gem of a find during our brief stay in Lexington.

Fried Oysters, Wings and surprisingly their Brussels sprouts (I used to hate Brussels sprouts growing up Lol) are all bomb!

I love this place so much. It is my go-to place for dinner. The food is really good and surprisingly affordable. The portions are also pretty large so there is almost always leftovers. My favorite thing about Winchell's is the affordable drinks.

Very good! We went specifically for the Kentucky bourbon pecan pie and it was amazing!

The food is to die for. Good home cooking with quality ingredients. The catfish had excellent flavor and had the perfect fry on it. The twice baked potato is mouthwatering!! A definite Lexington gem!

Winchell's is a Lexington Staple and boasts one of the best breakfast around town . If you're around on a Sunday checkout out the farmers market right outside for some other local favorites!

Wonderful breakfast, and first time there for breakfast. This is usually more of a sports bar for us, but know they had awesome breakfast food. Finally got the blue and white pancake that I had heard about and it was delicious along with everything else.

We have ordered winchell's a couple times during Covid using curbside pickup option! We pretty much always get the same thing from Winchell's each time and it's always amazing!

Just moved to Lexington and spent some time researching the "must go to places". Winchell's came up on every search and was recommended by several neighbors. The outside is not fancy and I was a little skeptical as we walked up, however the beer and food was AMAZING! We had the beer named "Southlandia", very good. The waiter told us ... read more

This was our first time here, and I can't say enough great things about our experience. Our waitress was so happy it was our first time there, and couldn't wait to tell us what things they were known for. The hot brown was easily the best hot brown I had. To say we had leftovers would be greatly underselling. She said they had "large ... read more

When we first moved to Lexington, everyone said, "You have to try Winchell's!" I can't believe it took us eight months, but I'm so glad we tried it. The food has not disappointed, especially the specials.(See what I did there?) It's got a great vibe, too, and non-covid, I can just see this as a great spot to watch a game.

I only just stated eating here before Covid. Once restaurants reopened I couldn't wait to bring my family. We all love it. And it's hard to get all of us to agree on a place to eat. Great burgers and salads. They are handling the Covid precautions great. We feel very welcome and comfortable dining in.

I've been coming here for many years.  If you want good country cooking, this is a great choice.  My favorite dishes are the country ham sandwich and the hotbrown. This place has been in business for decades and they are always busy. It's a good choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
