Cheap Eats Extraordinaire

By Morgan Chesky - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - There's just nothing like a fresh new batch of Cheap Eats to keep you warm on a chilly day. 

I start by heading south down to Bullard where I knock out my first two deals of the day. A banner says all I need to know so I head inside Tyler's Too Smokin' Good BBQ where owner Hank Tyler follows one simple rule.

"Bring it in good, make it better, send it out best," said Tyler. The BBQ establishment does just that, slicing and dicing their way into a delicious cheap eat. Their five dollar bill deal features a small BBQ sandwich, any side and a drink for just five bucks.

Oh they have free beer on tap too...just ask.

A short walk down I visit Ra K's Meat Market and Deli who offers a five dollar lunch Tuesday through Friday. "A nice Johnsonville Bratwurst prepared to perfection with a can drink and chips costs only five dollars.

Next when you see the pizza mobile you must be close to Coolie J's, a family owned institution offering a manager's special.

"If you don't like my manager's special," said owner Mike Daniels. "If you don't think it's the best pizza in town I'll just give it to you.

If you're a little extra hungry try tackling the showstopper.

"It's a five pound pizza, basically a supreme pizza on steroids basically we give you 30 minutes to eat it by yourself," said Daniels. Eater beware, don't finish and you get publicly shamed for all to see.

For the average cheap eater I recommend the special with two slices of pizza and a drink. At only five bucks it's one cheap eat you won't soon forget.
