What's good in this area is Barbecue and there are places here that stand comparison to many better known places in far larger cities. Among these are Stanley's in Tyler proper and the Purple Pig on 155 south of Noonday.

Beyond that there is little worth paying for let alone waiting to get into. Hell, I spend a month in Paris (France not Texas) every year and I wouldn't wait 30 minutes there.

Indeed, some highly praised places, Bruno's come immediately to mind, produce food so execrable that I have never managed to choke down more than a forkful or two (and I am usually a huge fan of Italian cuisine).

We have visited in Tyler regularly for the past 20 years and just discovered Traditions a few months ago.....so sorry we didn't know about it before. It's a cafeteria....and yes, I'm aware is not considered cool these days but the food is good, the service was better than most expensive sit-down restaurants, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Our group is made up of all ages from toddlers to teens to grandpas and everybody looks forward to dinner there. They don't have any clowns or crayons, but they do have a nice pianist during the dinner hour and the acoustics are such that we can carry on a conversation without shouting.

Yes, Traditions is good. The manager left Luby's in the Bergfield Shopping Center to own/manage Traditions. But to my surprise, that location, for Luby's, is now very good, not as expensive. Like you said cafeterias are not "the thing" now, but good food at both.

My opinion is that Bernards is the best restaurant in East Texas. OMG the best sea bass, and scallops, and filet mignon, and AHI TUNA that you will ever put in your MOUTH!
