Cast, having recently been in Tyler for the 1st time many many moons...mebbe 30+ years worth....my first thought was...If I wanted to live in North Dallas with all this traffic, I'd have MOVED to North Dallas instead of couple blocks down the street from the Davey Dogwood Park in downtown Anderson County.
OBTW Tylers the only place in all my national 30-40 years worth of travels I ever saw a street sign that said " Drivers making a U Turn have the right of way " on a 6 lane divided street - on South Broadway...that is a heck of a lot busier than Plano's nationally famous "Corner from Hell" at Park & Preston.
I'll be watching this thread with increased interest for a refferal on a place to eat, as we are "trapped" with a necessity to be in Tyler at least once a month...Oh Well.
FWIW the grub at the Blue Store Exxon station down south on Hwy 155 @ 436? in Noonday was everything as good as we'd heard it was, just a little spendy. The cobbler was especially noteworthy too.
