Jucys is a local hamburger joint with locations in Tyler, Longview and Marshall. They have won several awards for their hamburgers, although I don't put much weight in winning awards. There are two locations in Tyler, one just west of loop 323 on 5th street and one a couple miles south of loop 323 on Old Jacksonville Highway.
The spread: They offer hamburgers with varying toppings, chicken sandwiches, BLTs, grilled cheese, baked potatoes, salads, fries and onion rings. They have shakes and ice cream for dessert as well.
The verdict: Well, you are going to pay more for a burger here than from McDonald's, but they are worth every penny. For a long time, Jucys was the best hamburger I have had in Tyler (the burger from Coyote Sam's is the only one to top Jucys). The meat is jucy, the buns soft and the veggies fresh. One surprise was the onion rings - they were out of this world good. After taking one bite, the first thing that came in my head was "When am I going to get some more of these!?" Unfortunately, I had to share my onion rings with my wife and she was equally impressed. We have only picked up from both locations, and I think the one on 5th street is a little better.
Edible Tyler Roses: 4 out of 5, fine burger for a good price. Skip the fries and get onion rings!
