“Circle the Square to get a parking spot and enjoy lunch/dinner at this awesome taqueria!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

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!

“Hit me with the spicy sauce!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Great Super Burrito”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

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

“Fresh, Authentic, Mexican.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

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.
