when I want Mexican food without rice and beans and all the extras that come with tex-mex restaruants I chose El Lugar!! Get the #7 the way you want it never fails! I get it all the way with the green sauce and it is a bit spicy for your average person!

This restaurant is housed in an old 7-11 type building. Good food, good value, very plain atmosphere.

FRESH food...prepared when you order it and served hot...El Lugar is a great place for real Mexican food! The staff members are full of smiles and their food is full of flavor.

The restaurant is always clean and tidy, and it can accommodate small dining parties as well as large groups of friends/family.

If you like Mexican food, you should make the effort to stop by.

Also, their pricing won't break the bank. Great place! Great food! Great people! My favorite restaurant in Tyler!

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.
