5 East Texas Final Meals
A co-worker of mine is moving away and that had me thinking, if I was moving away from East Texas where would my final meals be.
I often write about restaurants around Tyler and East Texas - whether they are in their construction phase, opening or closing - restaurant news is a pretty big deal around here. We all love to go out to eat because that means we're not creating a mess in our kitchen! When it comes to going out to eat we all have our favorite places to go, they could be a fast food place, coffee shop, casual dining restaurant and probably many times our favorites are chains, but our local restaurant scene offers up a great variety.
So with my friend moving away that got me to thinking, excluding the chain restaurants (because their food is pretty much the same no matter what part of the state or country you move to), where would my final meals in East Texas come from.
We have a ton of great local dining places and after thinking about it, here's where my final meals would come from if I were leaving East Texas (in no particular order):
East Texas Burger Company126 E. Broad St.
It's not just the burgers that are so good here, the chicken fried steak is awesome too and don't get me started on the desserts!
Butcher Shop102 Lehigh St.
This place isn't just known for their outstanding burgers, but also their bakery and desserts too! I can't go in there without leaving with a bag full of cookies and other sweets from the refrigerated coolers!
Stanley's Famous Pit Bar-B-Q525 S. Beckham Ave.
Hands down this is one of the best and named best bbq joints in all of Texas by Texas Monthly! If I moved away from East Texas I would definitely miss the Brother-In-Law, the Mother Clucker and their version of the Frito pie, the Giant Frito Pie!
El Charro On The Ridge6899 Oak Hill Blvd.
When I'm craving Mexican food, this is one of my go to places! I would miss the street tacos the most I believe.
The Diner7924 S. Broadway Ave.
As a go to place for breakfast or brunch, I would miss out on the French toast, bacon, biscuits and omelets.
