5 Texarkana Eating places That Have survived The Check Of Time


Texarkana has a wide variety of restaurants to choose from, but which ones have stood the test of time?

We’ve had some great restaurants nearby over the years and I wanted to find the ones that have made it through thick and thin, the restaurants that have been through it all here. Here’s a list of 5 restaurants in Texarkana that really stand the test of time.

5. The lunch box



The Lunchbox has been around for 25 years and serves some of the best ‘homemade’ food you will find. The picture of their chicken spaghetti made my mouth water. The lunch box is located at 503 South Robison Road in Texarkana, Texas.

4. Fat Jacks 1985

Fat Jack’s has been bringing smiles to our faces for 37 years. With great oysters and burgers paired with amazing seafood and an atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. Fat Jack’s is that hole in the wall that locals call home. Fat Jack’s is located at 3919 Stateline Ave. Texarkana Arkansas.

2. Wayne’s family restaurant

Waynes Family Restaurant began as Rawleigh Burger Restaurant 56 years ago. When Rawleigh Burger closed all of its Texarkana restaurants, Wayne Walker, who ran that Texarkana location, took over and it greeted diners with some of the best burgers and the fish, oh the great fish. Wayne’s Family Restaurant is located at 2219 South Lake Drive in Texarkana, Texas.

TLC Burger

I have to give credit to TLC Burgers and Fires. TLC has been around for over 38 years and their fresh burgers and fries with that Red River Sand have been a Saturday tradition for my family for many years. TLC is currently rebuilding after a fire and I personally look forward to the restaurant reopening soon.
