My wife and I traveled to Dallas, Texas on May 23, 2018 and then with her sister and husband, we all drove to Tyler, Texas on May 25. We were in town to attend the graduation of 2 nephews from Chapel Hill High School. The family's home is located in "The Woods" off Old Omen Road. My niece and her husband decided that rather than stock up on groceries or take everyone out to feed everyone, they were going to have the food catered in, and their choice to do the catering was "The Diner". There were 14 guests staying in my niece's home and lunch and dinner was catered on May 25 and 26.
For our dining pleasure just prior to the graduation ceremony was chicken tacos. A driver from "The Diner" brought over a large aluminum foil container of sliced chicken breast with cooked onions and peppers, a large container of Mexican rice, and a couple containers of salad. While the humidity led to some of the taco shells sticking together, the chicken breast mix was really good and the chicken was great. The rice was very good as well. The next day, lunch consisted of an interesting take on the "B-L-T", with Jalapeno rolls sliced diagonally, and what looked like an avocado based aioli on the roll and some grilled chicken breast, white cheese, and bacon. The Jalapeno in the bread gave this sandwich some serious bite. Later that day, dinner consisted of rice that seemed to have been buttered and baked, along with sauteed tilapia, and salad. While I like "meat", I also like fish, and I am not really a fan of tilapia. The tilapia looked like it had been rolled in spices and blackened. The preparation was great, and the food was hot on arrival.
The food was plentiful, tasty, hot, and good. The delivery people did set up and were very friendly. I can hardly wait to get back to Tyler, as I know where I am going out to eat !!!
