Moving to Tyler, where do we eat?

Thanks, y'all! We already had found Don Juan's... the original... and thought their tacos were pretty good indeed, but most of the others I hadn't yet heard of; they will go on the list! (Yes, I'm a dork, I keep a list of places to eat.) Thanks and I will share any finds I make as well.

Moving to Tyler, where do we eat?

Help, moving from the DFW area to Tyler and trying not to panic about the restaurant selection. We like virtually all ethnic food (Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, little taquerias especially). We don't need fancy; in fact we'd rather eat at a (clean) dump with good food than a shiny new bland middle-of-the-road place. Oh, yeah, and barbecue is one of the few things I don't much care for.

Most locals seem to mention all the chains, which are OK in a pinch or when we're taking the kiddo, but what else is there?

Birthday dinner near Rockport, TX

Last summer, our favorite place was a little Italian restaurant called Bellinis,owned by a youngish couple (he is Sicilian and the food was lighter than the typical American-Italian we seem to find in most parts of Texas). Hemingways was pretty good but we thought the food was fresher and more interesting at Bellinis. In previous visits, we thought Latitudes was overpriced for what we got, and that the food wasn't as good as everyone that worked there seemed to think it was.
