If you want a great burger in East Texas, Jucys Hamburgers is always a great stop. Those thick and juicy patties, the melting cheese, the veggies, that side of onion rings, it is oh so good. There are multiple locations all across our area. One thing you might not know about Jucys Hamburgers is that they have an offshoot restaurant that specializes in another East Texas favorite food, tacos. Folks in Longview, Henderson and Marshall, Texas already get to enjoy this taco paradise. Folks in Tyler will now get to enjoy them soon.

My First Experience with Jucys Tacos

I didn't get to have my first experience with Jucys Tacos until 2021. I was working in Longview and there was a restaurant right across the street from where I was at. When I was done, I hopped over to try it for the first time for lunch. I got the combo street taco plate with two chicken and one steak taco. The grilled jalapeno on the side was a nice touch and the rice and beans were great. I very much enjoyed my first dining experience there and have been back a couple times when I make the trek to Longview.

After adding the salsa and a hot sauce packet to the tacos, I took my first bite, it was bliss. - Me during my first visit to Jucys Tacos

Jucys Tacos Coming to Tyler

So I was excited to learn that Jucys Tacos will be opening a location in Tyler soon. Tyler already has three Jucys Hamburgers locations which are all fantastic. Now to add a Jucys Tacos location just adds something good to an East Texas owned favorite franchise. The location will be at 2701 Old Henderson Highway on the east side of Loop 323.
