While there's been lots of positive news lately about restaurants opening locations in Tyler - Golden Corral, Saltgrass Steakhouse, & Texas De Brazil for example as well as a new speakeasy - there have also been a few that have shut down over the past couple months.

Now comes word that after three years of operation, Three Z Azian Cuizine will also close its doors for good at 3 pm this Sunday, March 5.

Three Z Azian Cuizine will be the second restaurant located in the Times Square shopping center to cease operations in recent memory, joining Doubledave's Pizzaworks as former occupants of that South Broadway location developed around the movie theater.

The owners of Three Z Azian Cuizine say that despite excellent reviews on Yelp and positive feedback from their loyal customers, they just couldn't compete for business with the bigger chains' much larger advertising budgets. Tyler Morning Telegraph initially reported on their closing on Tuesday shortly after the restaurant announced it on Facebook.
