The food was great, very nice atmosphere. The servers where fast and friendly. The price was fair for quality food. It was before lunch and the place was very busy, which is always a good sign. The best part of the stop was I added a tip to my card and forgot to total it. They could have added any... More

We always love the chips and salsa here. Although we still enjoyed our food, a few things appeared to be different from in past times. The enchiladas were barely warm, as well as our flour tortillas. When I order a cup of queso and pay $5.79 for it, one should receive more than a couple of inches in the cup.... More

This restaurant has been in business for a long time with good reason. The food and service is always really good and the setting makes you feel as though you are in Mexico. They serve the best tortilla soup I've had and their homemade tamales are great as well.

Salty food, dirty restaurant, in experienced waitstaff. No soap in the ladies room. Never received my drink untill dinner was over. Food tastes like it's all precooked product and just heated up. I am a experienced cook, i know the short cuts

We were very impressed with the entire dining experience at Posados. Everything we ate was very good from the beginning chips and salsa to the complimentary soft-serve ice cream cone at the end of the meal. Not only is the Tex-Mex food delicious, customers are able to select among a dozen items and multiple sauces for inclusion on the combo... More

I got fajitas from here and they were surprisingly good. The chicken was juicy and not at all overcooked. I got the food to go though so I'm not sure about the service or atmosphere.

A family favorite for years, we recently stopped by for Sunday lunch. Lunch special was a two choices from many traditional Mexican entrees accompanied with choice of Mexican or Cillantro lime rice along with one choice of refried beans, charro beans, black beans or tortilla soup (The tortilla soup was excellent!) for under $10. The meal is provided with complimentary... More

I love this place. Every time I'm in Tyler I eat here! It's so dang good. From the chips and salsa, fresh tortillas, cheese dip, guacamole, quesadillas, fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, I mean I could go on for days! You can't go wrong with anything you eat here.

I am new to Tyler, and drive by this restaurant daily on my way to work. Today was the day I decided to try this restaurant. I was not impressed! Upon entering we were seated near some fireplace that was a parking space for empty chairs. The server placed some chips and salsa in front of us. Then she took... More

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.
