Always love eating here. My go to is the buffalo chicken sandwich, but they often have very appealing specials.

Better food. More televisions.

Great breakfast. Had southwest omelet special. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it was 11:30 and I wanted to try the wings I had heard about.

A Lexington Tradition... real food made by professionally trained and certified chefs (Culinary Institute of America in NY). They grew up here and know southern food by heart.

Great food and reasonable prices. Hot Brown is a must!
Hearty amount of food, properly cooked, reasonable prices. A "Must Eat Here" restaurant. I got the small Hot Brown (Bread tips, ham, turkey, bacon and LOTS of cheese) and it was plenty of food. VERY hot when served as it should be.

I cannot say how much I enjoyed our curbside pickup brunch at Winchell's today. Not only was the food the same quality that I experience in house (which is superb) but the servers were kind, and I want to APPLAUD the owners and staff of Winchell's for adapting so kindly and positively to the governor's changes to restaurants for the ... read more

Winch's is a great place for brunch. They have the good Bloody Mary mix (zingZang). The portion of food is a great deal for their prices. Always have leftovers to take home. They did a great job on the social distancing inside when they were allowed to be open as well.

totally worth the drive from Winchester. Not only was our server, Emily, awesome... but all her recommendations were spot on from The Key Lime Martini to the loaded potato soup and entrees... AND Emily went out of her way to give us some pointers on places to visit while in Lexington. THATS SERVICE!!

I ordered the pulled pork and OMG.. Portion sized amazingly! I ordered Mashed Potatoes w/ country gravy and green beans as my sides and also heaping portions. During COVID, I am trying to support local eateries and was more than HAPPY with the curbside service and meal quality. THANKS!!

My dad wanted a pork tenderloin. We searched for all the options online, as I am new in town and did know whats good just yet. We got pork tenderloin, trout, burger, and pecan pie. All were really good. Fresh ingredients, home cooking feel. Pecan pie wasn't overly sweet, which was great. Overall, we all loved our food! We would be ba ... read more

Grew up down the road and always loved it, now the food is still delicious, staff was very kind and helpful and we loved being able to sit outside! I loved the hot chicken, and the fresh veggie side options are always so delicious! Plus there was a great lineup of local beer on tap!

TRY THE HOME FRIES! It's a must! They are breakfast potatoes and are by far the best I've had in my entire life, not trying to oversell it but you got to try them if you come here. Great service, food was fantastic. Really enjoyed my coffee, eggs, bacon, chocolate chip pancakes, and of course the breakfast potatoes.

Winchell's is a local legend for anyone that's lived in Lexington for the past 20 years, and well worth visiting if you're new to the area. Definitely check them out for breakfast, especially with a morning cocktail or bloody mary. Their jalapeno grits & breakfast trout (almond crusted trout & eggs) will make you wonder why you've ne ... read more

One of my favorite places in town. The service and food is almost always excellent -- the only reason they're getting docked a star is because they took the deep fried banana pepper rings off the menu!

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised how good our meal was and how friendly they were. My husband and I started with some chili. It has a bit of a kick and quite good.

I ate here for the first time Monday and I am sure it was the first of many meals I will have from Winchell's. It was amazing.

Where the heck is the 10 star for this restaurant. Soooo good especially Shrimp and Grits. Glad I live on the east coast of Virginia cuz I'd be fat.

Roland Shelburne via google.com - Oct 25, 2020
Had been wanting to try this one for a while. Glad we did!!
We got there about 12:30 pm. It's larger inside than it looks. They also had a few outside seats. Their "menu" was a CR Code taped to the table. You simply "scan" that code with your phone and you have the menu. Or you can...request a paper menu. The dining rooms were fairly large. Every other table was marked as Closed. I had their ... read more

Everything is good, you can't go wrong. Good atmosphere to watch sporting events. Pro tip: get the nachos. I don't know what kind of cheese sauce is on it but it's amazing.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
