Question Is Tyler open?

I'm taking my wife to Tyler in a couple of weeks. I was looking on the google for places to eat. On google maps, every restaurant in town says take out or delivery. I mean all of them. Is the map not updated or is it correct?

I'm not sure they ever shut down.
Not that I noticed anyway.

Maps are out of date. Come on. A lot of servers and kitchen personnel are still wearing masks but they're not required.

Aspen Creek out on the loop is pretty good.

Here are the meals we will need. Keep up the ideas (except for Smart). We're staying at a B&B so breakfast is taken care of.
We check in at 3:00 Monday and will come back home Wednesday.


Monday - Dinner

Or maybe thinking of Mariscos Don Juan's? One location on the square downtown and one on East Erwin....not far from each other. More authentic and excellent. Mercado's is excellent also...more TexMex.

Diner- The grove, very popular spot with a cool outside atmosphere. I recommend for a nice night out.

Dinner- Ricks on the square, best shaved ribeye sandwich I have ever had.

Lunch- Loggins, Johnny Manziels grandparents own. But, one of the best buffets around imo if you like home cooking. Arguably some of the best CFS I have had.

Or check out FD's grillhouse, one of our favorites for lunch or diner.


Just some popular spots.

Also:

Dakotas Steak House
1836 Texas Kitchen

I respectfully disagree. Forget the liberal BBQ you have to stand in line to get tgen sit outside to eat. Go 20 minutes east and eat at Country Tavern. Best BBQ in Texas.

Kiepersol is good for 'Tyler Fancy'.

Tyler is about as “open” as far as eating out at a restaurant as any town I have been to! I don’t think people here cook lol! You won’t find any Covid restrictions here now other than Dr’s offices.

Some great suggestions listed above. Inexpensive lunch I like Stanley’s, Don Juan’s, Lolas, and The Catch. Nicer dinners I like the Grove, Bernard Mediterranean, Ricks, Prime 102, Dakotas.

It’s all open.

If you can get in I would head to Jack Ryan’s steakhouse. My favorite restaurant steak. My wife and I try to go there ever so often. Great place.

We go to the one in Kilgore but I would expect this one to be the same.

I just read on the interwebs that the Jack Ryan’s place in Tyler didn’t re-open after the shutdowns.

I forgot about Javis. That place has really good food and atmosphere and is reasonably priced. I agree about Mercados…it was great 20 years ago.

I’m with you I can name Atleast 10 Mexican restaurants in Tyler better than Mercardos.

Heck I would rather eat the Tacos at Fresh and grocery shop then go mess with Mercardos.

Loggins is an amazing home cooking buffet I love Mexican food day. U can get Enchilads, CFS and Catfish all on the same plate lol!!

Ricks IMO I usually better at lunch then dinner. Gigi usually cooks at lunch so it’s better I think.

Have not tried the new Prime place yet on the square.

Country Tavern is great Ribs!
