Mercadoac2s, established in August of 1987, began as the flagship of our restaurants, and still provides a unique atomosphere and dining experience. That was so much fun, we decided to try it again, opening La Posados in Tyler, in June of 1988. We later changed the name to Posados CafA(C), which is the name we go by to this day. After that, we thought we'd spread out a little bit, and Longview became the next location opening in May of 1994. We opened a second Shreveport location in June of 1999, before deciding we needed to make sure our neighbors to the west were taken care of as well. We opened our first location in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Mesquite in December of 1999. We continued to grow in the DFW area with the additions of Bedford in August of 2000, Frisco in 2001, Fossil Creek in 2002, and Plano in 2003. We moved into the Austin area in 2004, with an opening in Pflugerville.
“A Giant Chandelier Made of Corona Bottles” sort of sums up the décor and their aspirations. They have a standard menu of tacos, fajitas, burritos, enchiladas and such, and do a good job with them. However, they had none of my favorite, more substantial Mexican classics – Mole, Chili Verde, Carnitas, etc. The service was prompt and courteous, and the portions were substantial. If you’re ok with the menu, you’ll probably be happy here.
Food was somewhat greasy today. My wife and I went there for lunch: she has a sensitive stomach. She had the the Posada combination plate (a beef and cheese enchilada with rice and beans and a taco). The only thing that wasxn't greasy was the rice. She actually got physically ill mid meal.
My order (the taco plate) was OK, but nothing special. We also had chips and queso as an appetizer: that, too was greasy. For $35.00, I expected a lot more. We will not be back.
I have only been once, but it was delicious!. I am looking forward to going back soon. We went a while back for lunch and some of the best beef fajitas in central Texas. It was a lunch special and was enough to make 3 huge fajita tacos. It was served with a fantastic garlic sauce (?) that just made your mouth water. We also tried a couple of the frozen margaritas... worth ever penny. The mixture of sweet and tart were perfect. The chili con queso was yummy, not too spicy nor too mild. The meal ended with a nice treat, a complimentary sopapilla with honey and butter. Great food at a great price. You gotta try it at least once!!
Just a wonderful place. The food is uniformly great, and I highly recommend the pollo ixtapa. It has become my go-to menu item whenever I eat here. Any of the staff has been top notch, friendly without being overbearing, and you never wait for a drink.. EVER! When you go, ask for one of Cowboy's tables for the best of the waiters at Posados.
The one thing you cannot do without at Posados is having a margarita. The frozen margaritas are flawlessly done, perfectly frozen so that they stay that way while you drink it instead of watering down before you finish. They have just enough kick without being so strong you feel like you're taking shots. And the size! The grande is huge, easily twice the size of a margarita at other places. Posados has the closest to a perfect margarita as I've found anywhere.
Great food, reasonable prices, top-notch staff and the best margaritas in town. What are you waiting for?
