Cheap Eats: Back in action!

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - The Cheap Eat deals are out there if you know where to look. I started in Tyler and got lucky. When you start seeing windsocks out the windows, a second look is required.

The Skyline Cafe is a joint effort of Larry and Becky Kalmowitz who know plenty about good food.

"We have three generations of restaurateurs," they explained.

The culinary wisdom comes in handy. A steam cooked all beef dog, a buttered fryhoffer bun, and plenty of fries are bursting with flavor and soon delivered. Skyline Cafe's drink and a dog special only costs you $5.

Next up was another restaurant making a name for itself in 2010.

Shack Daddy's in Longview is in the competitive barbeque business, and lets the food speak for itself. Creative Cook's Jodie and Monty Hardin amass a menu filled with food at $5 or less.

From steak, to meat loaf, to chicken and ground beef, Cheap Eaters have their pick.

They get you in, you eat, you have a good meal and you are out the door again.

The daily specials consisting of an entree, two sides, and a drink run exactly $5, making Mojo's this Cheap Eats winner.

Bonus Cheap Eat:
Captains Fish House
Great Deal on a Hardy Meal
Red Beans and rice with Andouille sausage, salad & drink
$5.00

    When the town of Gilmer is mentioned in relation to sports, the Buckeyes powerhouse football program immediately comes to mind. And that's fair considering they have won three state titles and racked up 13 double digit win seasons since 2000. But a small 1A school about nine miles away deserves some attention these days as well.
