Fine for the ice cream, but the burgers are so-so and service isn't great. Go to Swanners nearby for a better burger and hit DQ for dessert.

One can get almost any kind of doughnut as well a breakfast fares. Their homemade sausage and egg are very good. They have the typical short hours expected at doughnut shops

Swanner's Hamburgers

Reviewed By judyhQ3383TY - Dallas, Texas

Driving to Longview and stopped into Swanners for a hamburger. You seat yourself and go to the counter to order. Your order comes in a sack and you get your own drink. The only thing you do not do is cook. The staff was cordial,...MoreThank you for eating with us.

La Finca Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By Ed B - Gilmer

I've eaten here several times over the past six months, for both lunch and dinner. The food is always fresh and hot. The appetizer chips are always fresh, crisp, and flavorful and the accompanying salsa is mild with great flavor. The entrees are also served hot and well displayed.
The wait staff is appropriately attentive, eager to accommodate the customers wishes and needs always friendly and competent. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is welcoming.
The only downside I can find, at all, is the separate dining area which is a very "hard" room and voices echo badly. For people with hearing difficulties, it is uncomfortable and not easy to hear your dining companions nor the wait staff. Since experiencing this once, I just request to be seated in another area and the staff have been very accommodating.

Bubba's Fat Burgers

Reviewed By Gail W - Gilmer, Texas

The service is always outstanding! The food is always phenomenal whether it be a burger, lunch, BBQ. I cannot say enough good about this place. The atmosphere is a little lacking, that is overcome by the food! I have never had a bad experience. Very friendly, caring people. I am a local, I go every opportunity I have. Love Miss Willie's mini burger, just perfect for me. They do not take cards, however, they have an ATM machine where one can get cash.

The ribs came vacuum sealed in plastic from the factor, they tasted like it to. Wouldn't give the bones to my dog. We tried some brisket, it was dry without much smoked flavor, took them home and added my own sause. Try it at your own risk, don't go there hungry.

Angelo's Italian Pizza & Pasta

Reviewed By searunners

This is a diamond in the town of Gilmer. The owner is extremely nice and always welcoming. Every single dish there is delish and has never disappointed. Perfect for any occasion. The lobster ravioli is out of this world, the bread is fresh and perfect, and the pizzas are wonderful. Best place to eat in Gilmer. Perfect Italian date night out, or family dinner!!

First you have to know what a hot link is. Second you have to like hot links. If the answer to both is yes, then Doc's is the only place to get them. Bring cash and an old shirt you don't care about. They don't take credit and they don't supply bibs. Best hot links around.

This is the epitome of the local home-town restaurant on the courthouse square. We've eaten there numerous times. Haddens has sandwiches (sorry, big surprise there I know), but they also offer plate lunches, salads, and specials such as meatloaf and chicken and dumplings. I often get a chopped steak, although some of the sandwiches are also very good. The building is decorated with memorabilia from Gilmer & Upshur County's history. Save room for the pie!

It's hard to tell someone else whether barbecue is good or bad, since everyone has what they like and don't like .Bodacious is a chain in this area, and most people seem to think it's pretty good. I like it. It offers the basic types of barbecue: ribs, chopped beef, Turkey, etc. with the usual basic sides. Chopped beef and ribs are good; my daughter likes the sloppy joes. My husband likes a plate with different kinds of meats. Good food; normal
