May not look like much on the outside, but this place is a gem. Great jalapeño cheese grits and their buffalo wings are outstanding. Nice little gem tucked away in LEX.

Amazing food! Don’t let the initial vibe fool you! We were hesitant at first, because this place looked more like a sports bar. Then we read a review saying not to be fooled by appearances… and I’m so glad we followed through. It’s rare that fried food can be both decadent and light and this place does both!

We enjoyed the food and service, but even though the pecan pie to go was good, it was a very small piece...

I got a yummy chicken breast chef salad. Since I was picking it up, they boxed the fried chicken separate from the salad. And the homemade blue cheese dressing was so good!

The food is really good here. Came with a party of 8 and everything was brought out on time and hot. Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere. Came on a Monday afternoon for lunch. Wasn't busy at all.

First impression when you see the outside of this place is that it may be a dive bar or a biker bar - but that is so not the case at all. I came here with my family at the end of June and had a really great meal. The restaurant appears to be a big local UK hangout. Lots of UK memorabilia all over the place. The food though is really ... read more

My boys and I came here after a doctor apt after a recommendation from the doctor office. We were impressed with not only the quality of the food but the service was absolutely outstanding.

Great food, great service. I have looked for Winchells off and on for a few years. Finally found it about a month ago. I've ate there 5 times now and each time it's been excellent. We drive to Lexington about 60 miles for Drs, shopping and to eat. Well worth the stop.

We were in Kentucky for the first time and wanted to try the must have local dishes. This place did not disappoint. We had the beer cheese served authentically with crackers, celery and carrots.

Don't go for speed, grab a table and enjoy a conversation. This is food worth waiting for, try the specials and take the waitress reconditions. It's always good food but breakfast is the family favorite here.

One of the few restaurants open for lunch on Memorial Day. Wife and I had potato skins appetizer and taco salad (shared both). Both items were delicious. We always say we need to eat here more often.

Great meal. Fried chicken was excellent and great sides. I would recommend this restaurant/ bar grill to anyone.
Denny Jack via google.com - May 30, 2021
They give good portions for price. I would recommend taking the tendon out of the chicken breast before cooking and serving. My chicken sandwich had the tendon which made eating it extremely messy. Salad was fresh and crisp.

I went by myself for Sunday brunch. They were busy, so I sat at the bar to avoid taking up a whole table for one person. I had a lovely meal, promptly served, and the bartender kept my coffee hot. But... I soon noticed that I was missing out on something. As others sat down to eat at the bar, nearly ALL of them were ordering ...Blo ... read more
