Very good food. It's a great place to eat when you all want something different. Chicken fried steak and fried orka was very good.

I loved the taste of all the food I had. Fried fish, green bean casserole, carrot salad, and strawberryshort cake. WOW. First time customers, will be back. Staff was extremely helpful, especially Dana.

Thanksgiving take out. Seems simple enough, roast the turkeys and break them down. You know, separate rhe white meat tom the dark and slice the breat meat. To serve simply portion an equal amount of each, unless all white or all dark is requested. Yes, it seems seems is simple but does require some heavy lifting in the process. I... More

I order the senior meal. ..liver, macaroni and cheese and garlic bread. The portion size was perfect. I ordered the liver without onions(I don't care for them). The liver was cold and tough. The macaroni and cheese had a good flavor but when I bit into a few of the noodles, water came out. So, it had not been drained... More

Traditions was the main food provider for the Event I attended in Tyler and the banquets were for over 500 people and they served the best food i have had in large setting in a long while, if you are having a event you would miss out if you did not have traditions cater your event.

I just love Traditions. It's a family friendly cafeteria with many choices. The selections are always hot and fresh. I've tried many entrees and all were very tasty. It's one of my parent's favorite restaurants in Tyler. I like better than Lubys'

Just costs a few too many pennies in my humble opinion . My favorite is the liver and onions . The veges are always crisp and fresh . Service depends on who's in the drive thru line that day - sometimes good sometimes not . When I have eaten inside it has always been good . Very generic cafeteria food... More
