While a lot of people who'll be attending don't live too far away, There will be hundreds who are coming from out of town, and out of state. If that's you, welcome to Tyler!

It also means you'll likely be in our wonderful city a few days, and you'll be looking for restaurant suggestions on Friday and Sunday (Saturday belongs to the BBQ).

So, I thought we could help you out with a jump start on a few of our favorite spots for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.

First, if you're still looking for tickets, we have a limited number on sale right now, get those quick. You can secure your Red Dirt BBQ tickets here.
