tyler — The lawsuit between the owners of El Chico Ranch and Toys "R" Us has been settled.
Officials tell us the restaurant will now be called "Tyler Ranch". All other decor, including staff uniforms and menues, will remain the same.
Issues arose between the two sides when renovations on the old El Chico Restaurant were underway to make room for the new Double D Ranch.
Parents and its lease holders were not happy with it being close to a local high school and TRU .
The manager of El Chico Ranch has confirmed the business will open Tuesday morning at 11 a.m.
The restaurant previously tried to open as the Double D's Ranch before a lawsuit was brought against it in a Smith County courtroom by Toys 'R' Us.
The El Chico Ranch will go back to court in November in an attempt to operate as the Double D's Ranch.
The manager says they are in the process of finalizing the last details before their grand opening.
