We were staying at Holly Ranch Lake about 25-30 minutes away and headed out looking for some good Mexican food and we were not disappointed. Wife had fajitas. I had the Laredo. I remember telling the manager how good the taco meat was specifically. It was just flavored perfectly. Would go back if we visit there again.

Ok so I realize I have a problem understanding why there is squeeze margarine and something called honey syrup on the table. Couldn't they just provide real butter and honey? And offering honey mustard dressing for the fajita salad? These are not items I think of when I think Tex-Mex. I had the 1 cheese enchilada with rice and beans.... More

I reviewed this restaurant last year, giving it a Very Good rating based on the food quality. I am writing this one to comment on what a great job Derick, the GM does here. The food is on the high side price-wise, but worth it due to the freshness and high quality ingredients. An example is Posado's guacamole. It is... More

This is my family's favorite place to visit for Tex-Mex style Mexican food. Great neighborhood vibe, fresh made chips and salsa, great tortillas (made right there inside he restaurant) and sopapillas! Our favorite is to order chicken and bean nachos with black beans and share for a meal. Great place for a relaxing meal!

You can find Pasados in other cities. Mercados was always (to me) the flagship of the company that eventually made the Pasados chain. As the flagship, I think the food at Mercados is just a little better, but Pasados is a close second.

Would like food better if it hadn't had so much cumin in the refried beans.Hot sauce was too thick for our taste. All in all,can't complain since it being convenient to where we live to call in and get food to go.

Don't let the full parking lot scare you. The inside of this place is huge, and the lunch service is fast and efficient. They have one of my favorite tortilla soups (it's HUGE), and excellent queso. My kids love the fresh tortillas.

This restaurant is pretty much like all the other Tex-Mex joints in Tyler, so I will tell you what I thought was different. Fajita's were very good, the quality of meat was a little better here, and they don't cook the heck out of it If you like your meat medium, you will enjoy these. I don't like Bell peppers-... More
