I'll be driving through Paris tomorrow around lunch time. Makes as much sense to eat something close to home before I take off, but that's just not as much fun. So was wondering if any C-Ders familiar with the area had some suggestions for a not to be missed mom and pop restaurant?? Yelp is usually helpful but thought I'd try here first.

I'm an adventurous eater so open to all non-chain spots.

TIA!!

Mods, feel free to move if I should have posted in the Main TX forum.

There's also this if you like late breakfast, chicken fried steak, banana pudding/pies:

McKee's 24 Hour Family Restaurant - Paris, TX

Ta'Molly's is a small chain but really not bad (also on E. Loop) - we always laugh about the name..

Both my grandmothers and many cousins, aunts and uncles lived in Paris for decades. Unfortunately these days I must visit them in the cemeteries..so I don't get much feedback on the food in Paris.

I know it's always been my dream to visit the City of Light in Spring!! But looks like I may have to settle for banana pudding pies.

Reminds of me of last summer when I was in Miami. Miami, Oklahoma that is. My friends suddenly weren't so jealous, lol. Word of advice, do not eat 'Mexican' food in NE Okla!!

Truly appreciate the restaurant suggestions, guys. Sounds like I'll be able to locate some tasty vittles. And Lakewooder, am sort of embarrassed to say I've never been to Paris in 35 years of living in the metro. Heard there's some neat old homes and history. Maybe I'll have time to explore when driving back home.

Paris had a massive fire over 100 years ago and when they rebuilt they truly wanted to inject a cosmopolitan feel and indeed some of the early settlers were directly from Europe.

Church Street has the best homes (also there's a great park with a peristyle the next block west and some really nice eponymous 'churches') - but there are little hidden pockets all over - some amazing Craftsman homes are located in those..also do not miss the square downtown. It's very unusual for a Texas town. Sorry though, not much for a 'foodie' there..most of the food I remember was delicious home-cooked and funeral, reunion and church cakes, casseroles and the like...

There are some great homes in Paris. Can't give you much advice on food places since the wife pretty much sticks with Ta'molly's. I think it is average but that's my opinion. Her mother is such a great cook that we seldom eat out while visiting. The town square is pretty cool. It's your typical small Texas town.
