Taqueria El Lugar

El LugarNumero tres isn’t so much of a hole in the wall anymore, though it did start out that way…  El Lugar – what every hole in the wall dreams of becoming, started with one small location on Gentry, but now has locations on Troup, in Bullard, and on 5th Street.  I’ve never eaten anything from El Lugar other that the legendary Super Quesadilla, but I’ve heard everything on the menu is delish.  One major drawback is they don’t accept credit cards – cash only.  At least this is the case at the Gentry location which happens to be closest to my office.  If they took cards I would eat there MUCH more than I currently do…  I just never carry cash.

  1. There’s a Taqueria El Lugar on South Broadway that accepts credit card and is just as awesome as the other locations. Here’s the address – 8288 S Broadway Ave
    Tyler, TX 75703. BTW this is a pretty new location, great eats.

  2. They also take cards at the 5th St location! I love me some El Lugar!

  3. They freakin’ rock! When I come home on leave from Germany I always make sure that I eat there multiple times before I have to go back! I’ve loved them since I’ve eaten there the first time!

  4. Anyone know how they make the Green and
    Red sauce? I would really like to make
    it at home for breakfast burritos !!

  5. The El Lugar on S. Broadway suddenly & mysteriously closed…no word to regular customers!
