I may be moving to the Tyler area in the near future. As for BBQ, I have had the ribs at Stanley's and dig the Purple Pig in Noonday, so I'm good to go there; however, fill me in on the following:
1) Steakhouse
2) Mexican
3) Italian
4) Burger

Thanks, JMc

1) Steakhouse - Forget it, Tyler needs a steahouse. Only place that I even halfway think has a decent Steak is Coyote Sams.

2) Old El Charro - Get the Enchiladas and Eggs, 2 Cheese Enchiladas, With Two fried Eggs on top of them, covered in chile.

3)Italian - Yeah we have an Olive Garden, doe that count? No seriously. Little Italy is decent but nothing I would call outstanding here in Tyler.

4) The Blue Store in Noonday, good old fashion burgers

1.) Drive to Dallas. Dakota's is okay, but ain't all that good
2.) Taqueria El Lugar. It's a taco shop. They have one on 5th St. by tjc and another on Beckam, north of town. Freakin awesome. Doesn't score very high on the health grade scale, but who cares. I like El Charo, it's the hometown mexican food. There is also Mercado's and Posado's, they're the same thing.
3.) Bruno's is probably the best Italian food in town. The only place I know that can make salad unhealthy. It's great.
4.) Blue Store in Noonday is the best. Jucy's makes a good burger.

Also, just a suggestion, go try the Country Tavern out towards Kilgore for their ribs and Rib Masters in Whitehouse. They're pretty good too.

All of these are local.

Good luck over there. I love that area and miss it a bunch!

If you want Juicy's goto the original in Longview. Whataburger is better than the Juicy's we have in Tyler.

If you like mud bugs, go to Big Sandy for some at the Crawfish Shack.

Wade's in Chandler beats the pants off the Crawfish shack. Spent 12 years of my life in Lousiana and it is the best I have found in East Texas so far.

I'm a big fan of both Stanley's and the Purple Pig too.

1) Kiepersol Winery south of Tyler cooks a good steak, albeit expensive. I prefer to grill my own.
2) Wife likes Chuys, a chain, but I prefer Tony's Taqueria on the Frankston Hiway, just inside the loop.
3) Another vote for Brunos.
4) The Blue Store is good and just a mile from my house, but I kinda like Legends in Bullard maybe a little better.

Pats BBQ off of 31 east on 850 going towards Jamestown used to be the best. Now that pat and mrs Gee died the boys are running it now. It not as good as it used to be but still pretty good. Been going there since I was 5 yrs old, looks like a rough place but it's ok to go to. Taqueria el Lugar on 271 by carrier is pretty good Mexican, and Bruno's is good Italian. Steaks, well I don't buy them in Tyler, but I do drive to saledo and go to Johnny's steak house once a week. Best steak I have had besides mine.

Steak--Sadly, Texas Road House may be the best. Go to the butcher on 31 east and the loop, buy a steak and cook it at home.

Mexican--Original Don Juan's on Erwin

Italian--Little Italy

Burger--Blue Store. Burgers are great and there is something to be said for eating in a gas station/grocery store/convenience store/bait shop/local gathering spot/restaurant/....

BBQ has started to get shotty. Stanley's is not as good as it was before the current owner. Seems it went to .... when the socialites and BScene got a hold of it. Ribs have got rosemarry or some crap on them. Same goes for the Purple Pig.

Guy in the parking lot at Tucker's on the line on 31 east has got the mudbugs for my money.

Was down this past weekend and hit Oliveto for Italian...was pretty good. I've been to Little Italy many times as it's only a few blocks away from my youngest sons house. I agree with the Purple Pig; however, the beef has been great but the pork has been average. I think it's Cumin and Apricot jam on the ribs at Stanley's.
Funniest damn thing happened while at Mercados...I ordered a Glenlivet Neat at the bar. Young cutie serves me up Glenlivet...in a shot glass! Classic.
