La Plazita Mexican Restaurant

La PlazitaYet another delicious, authentic Mexican restaurant has found its way onto my radar, and I’m sure glad it did.  La Plazita, located on Hwy 64 towards Tyler Pounds Airport, is small, clean, and serves some of the best salsa I’ve ever tasted.  The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food tastes great.  I ate here for the first time this week after hearing rave reviews from my husband and some of his friends.  In fact, my husband has become so obsessed he bought a huge jar of the salsa, brought it home for me to sample, then after I’d tasted it and became hooked he took the whole jar to work with him leaving me pining for more. Aside from the fantastic salsa, I can personally vouch for the empanadas and the enchiladas.  When I return I think I’ll either have the tacos or the carne asada.  La Plazita is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is not to be missed by any of my fellow authentic Mexican food lovers.

  1. I LOVEEEEEEE this place. Rumor has it that some of the people in the kitchen used to work for El Charro and took some of their better ideas and beefed them up, literally! We go all the time. Never crowded, constantly good, great service, fantastic prices. My absolute favorite Mexican place in Tyler.
