Last year I worked on a list of some of the best ‘hole in the wall’ restaurants around Tyler, Texas. It was fun to see so many people commenting about their favorite restaurants or maybe some that I should add to the list. As most of us know there are new people moving to East Texas all the time so I want them to know where some of the best restaurants are located so we can continue to support these amazing smaller businesses.  

Like last year, I want to discuss what exactly a ‘hole in the wall’ restaurant is so we’re all on the same page. According to an online dictionary the meaning of a ‘hole in the wall’, is a small and often unpretentious out of the way place. Recently there were a bunch of East Texas locals that all threw out suggestions of the best hole in the wall restaurants near Tyler, TX and of course I wanted to share those recommendations with you.  

The reason I said near Tyler and not in Tyler is because there were some fantastic recommendations that came from smaller East Texas towns. And while there are tons of amazing food options available in Tyler and all-over East Texas, I always enjoy trying something new that might not be as crowded as the more popular restaurants around town.
