Condado is a fun, modern taco restaurant at Fritz Farm at The Summit in Lexington, Kentucky. Here’s what to expect if you go!
Tacos are always a good idea.
At least that’s my theory.
So I was excited to check out Condado, a taco chain restaurant that started in Columbus, Ohio, in 2014 and has been expanding across the Mideast ever since.
We visited the Lexington, Kentucky, location one summer afternoon. Spoiler alert: we totally loved it!
Here’s what to expect if you go to Condado.
Getting to Condado in Lexington
Condado’s Lexington location is on the south side of town, at The Summit at Fritz Farm shopping development. (The Summit is full of excellent restaurants, including Honeywood and Core Life Eatery.)
You can order online for pickup or delivery.
The indoor space at Condado feels trendy and modern, with huge and colorful murals splashed across the walls.
There’s plenty of outdoor seating too, and some of it is covered. We love going al fresco, so this was perfect.
Can’t get enough tacos? We also love The Local Taco in Lexington, Mami Monchita’s in Frankfort, and Burnaco’s in Paris.
Or experiment with your own flavor combos at home, like mini shrimp pineapple tacos, potato tacos, tilapia tacos with strawberry and rhubarb, or cilantro lime fish tacos.
The menu has a wide array of fun, modern flavor combinations, or you can build your own taco from a list of shells, proteins, toppings and sauces.
The chips and dip options are impressive too! This isn’t just your basic guacamole, salsa, or queso.
We ordered a half-size pineapple guacamole, which was amazing.
For the main course, I ordered the Lucy’s Fire taco, which was spicy chicken in a spicy corn shell, and the Power Plant taco, which used veggie chorizo.
Both were delicious! Lucy’s Fire was my favorite.
The husband ordered a Sweet Heat taco, with brisket and cheese sauce, and the Dutch Dragon taco, which was vegetarian with portobello mushrooms and guacamole.
He loved them both, but the Sweet Heat taco was his favorite. (He said he could eat a dozen of them!)
We couldn’t be at Condado without trying one of their margaritas.
The Smoke Show crafted margarita, made with orange, lime, and agave flavors, was just fabulous. (Besides tequila, it got an extra kick from some Ancho Reyes chile liqueur!)
Happy Hour can vary from location to location. Generally, if you’re there on a weekday afternoon you can snag special prices.
On another visit, we tried a couple of the happy hour offerings. The nachos (which can be ordered with either meat or veggie chorizo) were amazing.
And the “House Large Marge” was the perfect pairing with nachos.
Have you visited one of their locations yet? Let us know what else to try on the menu!
