Smoked Meats & Tasty Treats!

With the most laid back atmosphere, and some of the best #barbeque in East Texas, the trip to #Stanleys is a Morton Family favorite! From the time our son was about 8 weeks old, we have frequented this local favorite often. It’s always been a place we consider a staple item in Tyler, but over the last several years it’s become a routine stop! From the brisket #tacos, the perfectly glazed #ribs, all the way to the Brother in Law #sandwich, we find enjoyment in the consistency, quality, and friendliness Stanley’s has to offer. The open patio gives our wild child a place to be himself. Our daughter is a huge fan of the #turkey, and loves to play the ring toss with her Dad while we relax and soak up some family time.

Looking for the best #margarita or #mixeddrinks in town? Go visit Heather, and tell her #TheMortonRealtyGroup sent you! With a sweet temperament, and welcoming smile, Heather will serve you up with whatever drink you prefer, and will make it just right every time. They also serve Local Buzz Brew by the local Tyler brewing company, #TrueVine, straight from the tap, as well as many other domestics, imports, wines, and specialty drinks. You can soak up some sun, sit in the shade, or dine inside in the quaint and personable original building that started it all over 50 years ago.

Looking for something extra? You HAVE to try their loaded brisket #fritopie or #stuffedpotatoes! #yummy The locals have deemed this awesome place worthy, as well as being named “One of the Best BBQ Joints in the World!” by Texas Monthly Magazine.

Finding their story published in David Gelin’s book “BBQ Joints: Stories and Secret Recipes from the Barbecue Belt,” and Daniel Vaughn’s “Prophets of Smoked Meat” published by Anthony Bourdain.” according to their website.

“Stanley’s has been family owned and operated since 1958. The site where Stanley’s sits today was a BBQ restaurant for two previous owners before being bought and renamed by J.D. Stanley in the late 50’s. The history of #BBQ is long and strong in this spot.

Nick & Jen Pencis took over the business in 2006 after the death of founder JD Stanley left his family unable to continue the operation. Nick & Jen have kept the spirit of JD’s recipes and methods alive, as well as adding their unique flair to the joint…Nick & Jen have tried to recruit the best staff to ensure the highest quality food and fun atmosphere.”(Courtesy provided by Stanley’s website;
