What About Kabob Near Orion at the Cascades I & II: Try the O.G. Gyro

At What About Kabob, Mediterranean food comes to Tyler in a distinctly laid-back, mom-and-pop setting. Kabobs, gyros, and salads star on the menu, but there's really something for everyone at What About Kabob—including the signature R&C burger.

This popular burger is crafted from a pound of beef, hand-shaped into a patty when you order it. Add whichever toppings you like to this juicy burger. Many customers go for the gyros, though, particularly the O.G. (AKA the Original Gyro). It's stuffed with beef and lamb carved straight from a rotating spit, plus lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, and any of the house's kabob sauces. A warm, fluffy pita hugs the entire concoction. You can also get your gyro in a deep-fried pita, filled with al pastor meat, or sans the meat and packed with falafel instead. Or just nibble on one of the starters, like the popular pita chips or feta fingers. It all awaits a short drive from Orion at the Cascades I & II.

Stanley’s Famous Pit Barbecue Near Orion at the Cascades I & II: Sink Your Teeth Into the Brisket

If you go to Stanley's Famous Pit Barbecue, there's one eat you must try, according to those who've gone before you: the brisket. Chopped, sliced; in a sandwich, on a plate; pair with pork or all by its lonesome, the brisket is hands down the most popular thing on the menu at Stanley's. And that's saying something, because this mom-and-pop barbecue joint not far from Orion at the Cascades I & II has been pit-smoking and serving barbecue for more than five decades.

If brisket doesn't appeal to you, then perhaps the popular Mother Clucker will. The signature sandwich arrives stuffed with a smoked, spicy chicken filet.

You can even add guac and candied bacon to the already decadent creation if you're feeling extra famished.
