We all know that people in East Texas get a little excited when there is something new in town, especially when we’re talking about restaurants. It’s been fun to see the buzz grow about a new restaurant that opened it’s doors this week. 

Most people remember the old seafood restaurant Breakers near Rice Road and Old Bullard Road in Tyler. That restaurant shut down which is now the location of the new restaurant called Mojo’s Cantina and Grill.

What Kind of Food is Served at the New Restaurant in Tyler? 

With a name like Mojo’s Cantina and Grill you know that tacos will be on the menu but according to their Facebook page they will also feature steaks, seafood, and specialty burgers. The theme is a mix of flavors, warm hospitality, and culinary creativity. 

While I haven’t had a chance to stop by yet, I know some friends that stopped by already and spoke with the owner and got some great information about the new restaurant. They are starting with beer and wine but are just waiting for permits to allow a full bar for all customers.

These places feel like home for many of these singers. Over the years, several artists have gotten into the bar or restaurant game, and for a select few, brands have turned into franchises with several locations and/or concepts — we're looking at you, Jimmy Buffett!
