TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
The building once occupied by a controversial East Texas restaurant is now under new ownership.
What once was Tyler Ranch Sports Bar and Grill will soon become Red's Famous Fried Chicken. The building's owner, Ed Robleski, says this new restaurant will separate it's self from the bar scene to become a more family oriented business.
Located across from Robert E. Lee High school and near several churches, Robleski says Red's will be more socially acceptable.
"Family operated, even family style service, which is a dramatic change from the Tyler Ranch. And I think the general public in Tyler knows the history of Tyler Ranch. We really are making a complete break from that, absolutely 100 percent," says Robleski.
Red's Famous Fried Chicken is now accepting applications and will be up and running October 8.
