Stanley's Famous Pit Bar-B-Q

Stanley's is the oldest operating mom and pop BBQ joint in Tyler, serving up true, pit smoked BBQ for over 55 years. Come try our perfect brisket, baby back ribs, Turkey, fresh sausage, and pulled pork in a fun and family friendly atmosphere! Stanley's offers some other selections such as fish tacos and even has vegetarian items. Also be sure to try our two most popular sandwiches - The Mother Clucker and Brother-in-law. We have a newly renovated, covered, and enclosed patio where you can catch live music 6 nights a week. The patio is also now equipped with a full-bar that features Texas spirits, draft beer, and a nice selection of over 70 bourbons. We take pride to produce all our barbecue and sides fresh each day, so we occasionally sell out due to heavy and unanticipated guest traffic. Call ahead if you want to make sure we have something you're looking for! We also offer catering services for your next event. See you soon! Be kind and have fun!

Finally made it to Stanley's as we work our way along the ever changing Texas Monthly Top 50 list. SFPBBQ did not disappoint My go to is a two meat plate consisting of lean sliced brisket and burnt ends. Both were done to perfection. Decided to try the ribs too. Equally great. Texas Monthly definitely got this one right.
One tiny quibble. The first young lady who attempted to take our order gave me a totally blank stare when I asked for Burnt Ends. I finally had to ask her if she had any idea what I was talking about. She admitted she didn't. When she sought advice from the other order taker and this other person understood Burnt Ends, we moved over the the second person to complete our transaction. You would think a top notch Q joint like this one would make certain that the first person a customer meets on arrival would understand Q and all its nuances.
Will return.
Highly Recommended.

Fd's Grill House

Reviewed By HelenC07 - Tyler, Texas

There are 3 aspects of having a great evening at a restaurant - service, quality of food, and PRICE! FDs has them all in spades. We got there early (5:30) which I highly suggest, and were attended to immediately by Emily. We were served our wine and water promptly and about ten minutes later, our hot meals were presented. I had the delicious "Alaskan Fish and Chips", a friend had the "Salmon and Kale" salad, another served was sirloin and tilapia, another was served a shrimp dish and to top it off, a huge crystal bowl of ice cream, a carmel sauce and a pouring of hot chocolate sauce. No one left anything on their plates. The prices of each dish was the greatest surprise of all. VERY reasonably priced, especially for a dinner meal. To be as busy as they were, the organization of the staff was amazing. Emily concentrated on our needs - more wine, more water or tea. Another set of staff delivered the meals to the table. This left Emily free to help us. FDs does not take reservations. They had a waiting lobby when we left. We shall return to FD since they achieved all the aspects of a quality restaurant.

Villa Montez

Reviewed By Deborah L

Met with friends. We have been going to Villa Montez in Tyler Texas since they first opened nearly 11 years ago. Tyler is in a building boom currently with an influx of chain restaurants. Villa Montez has been consistent with awesome food and old world charm atmosphere. It is in a historical mansion that has been consistently decorated with art and furniture. The small room behind the bar is where we choose to enjoy a cozy dinner. There is a downstairs cellar, 2 upper rooms for private gatherings, three dining rooms and an expansive patio. Privately owned by Chef Carlos Villapuda and his brother Mundo. Excellent service and staff!!!

Bernard Mediterranean Restaurant

Reviewed By Sharon R - Omaha, Nebraska, United States

This location is not as easy to find as it's tucked away in the back of a rambling shopping area. Menu is quite varied for a Mediterranean-themed cuisine. Service was excellent with attentive wait-staff and daily menu selections. The olive oil/chopped mushroom topping for bread was delish! Outdoor patio dining is especially nice. It's a bit pricier than other restaurants but worth it.

I could live the rest of my life on their chips and salsa and nothing else. Those alone are worth the trip. But my other all-time favorite is their cheese enchiladas. My son loves the queso. My husband loves the chicken quesadillas. Everything is good. But the chips and salsa are phenomenal!

Oliveto Italian Bistro

Reviewed By steffie702000 - Navasota, Texas

In town to visit my daughter at college. We needed somewhere that was pet friendly but also where we could visit without so much noise and distraction. September in Texas can still be very hot, but the patio was pet friendly and very comfortable. The food was amazing!!! She ordered pizza, I had a panini with pasta salad and we shared artichoke dip! We will be back....with our dog!!!
