Perico's Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By pcconley54 - Paris, Kentucky

Pericos made history on July 2, becoming the first local establishment to serve alcohol--legally--on Sunday, following passage of a new local ordinance enacted to boost tourism and business development. There is always a good buzz at this colorful venue, owned and cheerfully operated by Jose and Lilia Lucero. Wide menu attracts a large and faithful clientele. They serve a large and luscious pina colada. The fish tacos are superb, especially with the chipotle sauce. Be sure to ask for their special hot sauce, which is not on the menu. By September a fairly fabulous new patio should be ready. We're locals, and we do Pericos at least weekly--never disappoints!

Paradise Cafe

Reviewed By Larry G - Edgewood, Kentucky

Part of a party of six for a late lunch and everyone enjoyed their food. The Singapore noodles were tastey. The Pho was very good, as was the seasame chicken. The egg rolls were a nice way to start. The longer lasting impact came from our discussion with the owner involving his appreciation of his life and the importance of family over material belongings. His philosophy, as he describes it, should be widespread. We will be glad to return when we are back in the area.

We ate there twice, once for lunch and once for breakfast. We enjoyed tomato bisque, a cinnamon roll, and a delicious breakfast burrito. Portions were generous, and the food was very good. It seemed as if the locals look on it as a home away from home. We got excellent cherry cheesecakes to go.

Table was dirty. Service was ok. Food not so good. The meatloaf had a bottle of ketchup on it... way too much. Couldn't eat it. Didn't even take it home.

Riviera Maya

Reviewed By Rebekah G

So, after desperately trying to find dinner in Paris (We already had two miserable attempts), we asked a women coming out of the second place we tried if she knew of any good places to eat and she recommended this place. We were definitely impressed by the promptness of the staff, the variety of food available (it wasn't all Mexican) as well as the knowledge of the staff. They got us chips and salsa and our drinks and dinner in less time it took another place to seat us. The meal was great, the staff was pleasant and helped each other, it overall was a pleasant dinner.

Pizza is better than Little Caesar's, Papa John's and Dominos. Nice selection on buffet and a great way to try different pizzas like Bacon Ranch. Salad bar is included with buffet. Overall, good food and selection.

We were told about this place by one of the horse farm owners we'd talked to. It's in a strip mall setting right off the main road between Paris and Lexington (it's a great place to stop going to or from Claiborne Farms).

We had burgers one night and a Philly Cheese Steak the next night. Both items were very good and the prices were very reasonable. The owners are usually working the place and were friendly and helpful with tips about the area. The only thing they couldn't help us with was having to digest our food while we watched the Vikings get smeared on Thursday Night Football.

It has a very nice bar area with low and high tables, or you can sit at the bar. TVs tuned to sports (and of course horse racing). We were able to watch Kentucky U. win their second SEC game in quite a while. The customers were loving it.
