Known for its beautiful rose gardens, charming historic downtown and lively cultural scene, Tyler, Texas also boasts a great dining scene. We round up some of the east Texas city’s best eats – from legendary local barbecue and Latin American fare to award winning pizza and prime steak.
For prime USDA-approved steaks served in a beautifully upscale space, local diners in the know head to Dakotas Prime Steak & Chophouse. Since first opening its doors over a decade ago, Dakotas has earned a reputation as one of Tyler’s premier steak and chophouses. With dishes like the smothered steak with grilled onions, mushrooms and brown gravy and the double-cut Berkshire pork chop with orange-cranberry sauce, it’s easy to see why. A number of seafood, poultry and pasta dishes are also served alongside a bar menu with more casual eats like bacon-wrapped shrimp and Texas fries.
