We had planned on going out early for lunch but hit it right at noon. I requested my usual server, Alba, and we were very well taken care of. Food was delivered quickly, to-go containers brought without being prompted and to-go drinks brought prior to asking as well. Love going here for my Mexican food fix! I have brought several... More

There was a large crowd, but the line was handled in minutes. The quality of the food was like they had been preparing the meal for hours, just for us! Such a great break from traditional holiday meal. Large seating areas but well maintained and the service was impressive - even in the large crowd!

Took forever to seat a family of 5... That would not be a problem if the food was good.... My food came out cold, and so did my husbands. My kids chicken strips were all bread and no chicken. Plus I have no idea what kind of cheese they use but it taste like and has the texture of a... More

Stopped in for lunch after doing the Tyler Rose 1/2 marathon. Attentive wait staff without being overbearing. Free chips and salsa before your meal and soft serve ice cream after your meal. I had the beef fajitas with Charro beans. The fajitas were served with "fajita butter," something I had never heard of, but hey, what's not better with melted... More

For starters, this place looks awesome from the highway. I'll admit that I'm a sucker for neon. However, once inside the experience quickly goes downhill. We stopped by at 9pm on a Saturday night for drinks & appetizers, to finish watching a football game. We sat in the bar area, so I can't vouch for the rest of the restaurant.... More

Extensive menu selection and the service was great. You get a ton of food for the price. By all means, you need to save room for the free sopapilla at the end of the meal. Had a great time.......can't wait to go back.

Was trying to decide between seafood and Mexican yesterday. So glad I let my mother choose. She loves Posada's. They have a lunch special where you can pick two items and have rice and beans for $6.99. Some of the items you can choose from are: enchiladas, crispy/soft tacos, tamales, chalupas, and puff tacos. We chose the "Pick three lunch... More
