I just always love to get their number 7 with beef and an number 5 flour. The flavors are just so good.

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.

Always fresh, always good. This is a consistently great place to eat Mexican food. I've been a huge fan of Mexican food, for all my life. I'm always eager to try a new place.

El Lugar is by far one of the best places for truly authentic Mexican food. They don't take plastic, so bring cash.

I have patronized this locally owned restaurant at all of their locations in Tyler for years. All locations are open 11AM to 8PM Monday to Saturday. They are closed on Sunday. Their location Downtown on the Square (111 W. Ferguson) is one of my favorites. All of the food is excellent, freshly prepared, very reasonably priced and served by a friendly staff. I will attach a copy of their lunch/dinner menu picked up this morning. The number 7 Beef Super Quesadilla is my item of choice.

The downtown location has begun serving breakfast from 7AM - 11AM Monday to Saturday. With parking free downtown on Saturdays, the location is very convenient. Their chorizo, egg and potato burrito at $2.99 is a meal by itself.

They now provide delivery in Downtown area only.
