These restaurants used to be the best in Tyler. They've rested on their laurels and have sunk into just so/so. What little produce is necessary looks like what I toss at the end of the week. Breaking point was when my family from Chicago called the place out as slumping and wanted a new Mexican food place to visit when... More

Started eating here when Mercado first opened in Tyler ...my guess is..about 30 years ago and it's been my favorite for all these years. It's consistently good. Portions are BIG and salsa is delicious! Great side options...not just the traditional Mexican rice and refried Beans. There's also lime rice, charro beans, black beans, veggies, or tortilla soup. Great lunch prices... More

This is a very efficient, friendly place to eat. I have eaten there many times. The last time I went in prices had increased. Service is very good and I have been very pleased with all their food.

Mercado's is a true Tyler tradition. Tasty Tex Mex at a good price. Family atmosphere and free ice cream!

There is more than enough Mexican restaurants in Tyler. Some are better than others but if you want on that has stood the test of time and has just the original Mexican dishes this is still a good go to! prices are reasonable and you get plenty of food!

We have enjoyed both for lunch and dinner, but preferred Mercados for the atmosphere at dinner. The same family owns both and overall the food is comparable but we found Mercados on the loop had a bit more energy in the evening. THe fajitas and burritos were great in both places. As a native of San Antonio, the Tex-Mex flair... More

Ate lunch here today. Our fajitas were very good. Our sopaipillas were too well cooked for us. However, the service was excellent and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Loved the guacamole was excellent--not too spicy yet a great fresh taste from the right amount of lime and cilantro! Will definitely keep them in mind the next time... More

I think we have eaten at almost every Mexican Food restaurant in town, and we keep coming back to Mercado's for consistently good food. They have the best Tortilla Soup in town bar none! They make a decent Margarita, and the free sopapillas are awesome. All of their menu items are good, but I especially like the tamales and enchiladas.... More
