Agreement reached over controversial restaurant

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - According to the manager of El Chico Ranch, the restaurant has reached an agreement with Toys R Us. Toys R Us, who owns the property where the restaurant is located, sued the owners because, they said, the El Chico Ranch violated their lease. KLTV 7 has tried to contact El Chico Ranch's corporate office to get the details of the agreement, but they have not returned our calls just yet.

"Both sides are happy. We are just excited to go forward, and we look forward to serving the people of Tyler," General Manager Bingo Breshears said.

But that is not all that has changed. The restaurant now has a new name, Tyler Ranch.

"It just seemed to fit, you know. The ranch concept is what we are. It just seemed to work well for us," Breshears said.

The restaurant already has new menus with the Tyler Ranch logo, but the exterior of the restaurant has not undergone any changes yet. Breshears said they hope to have the new sign up within the next few weeks.
