Really, really good authentic Mexican style tacos and burritos. The number 7 is my favorite. They use real, fresh ingredients and it shows. It comes out fast and just two tacos or one burrito will fill you up! Good stuff!

I have never had anything bad from this place. The quesadilla is a must. If you can't handle really spicy hot sauce, tell them you don't want it. It will clear your sinuses for sure.

This restaurant would be for a quick meal. Better than your average Tex-Mex. There are 5 locations in Tyler. The pricing is reasonable.
