TYLER - The war is raging over a new restaurant making it's way in Tyler. It's called Double D's Ranch, and yes, Double D's is just what it sounds like.

"I think it's obnoxious actually."

Though the sign may be covered, people have not withheld their opinion.

"It wouldn't be for me, I think I'd go in a restaurant just to eat, not to look."

Those opposed have also made their opinion known online through Facebook groups, one called "Move the Double D" has been online for some time.

Last week, experts say, when Toys R Us, who shares a parking lot with the new restaurant, filed a restraining order against the business some took it upon themselves to boycott Toys R Us.

Toys R Us isn't the only business nearby that has some concerns. A dance studio, a high school, and even a church could be neighbors to Double D's if the business gets built. In fact one East Texan we spoke with says despite all that, he says he's not sure about the restaurant, but does think another chain could move in town.

"I have no clue what Double D's is, I've never been to it, been to a place like that but Hooters would be great."

If anyone is looking for variety than just look in the phone book. We have burger places,Whataburger, Burger King. Pizza places Ken's, Mazzio's. We have Chinese. We have Italian The Olive Garden, Cooli J's. TGI Friday's, Cheddars, Chili's, Spring Creek, Ryan's, BJ's Brewery. We Have Chicken Express, Wing Stop, Buffalo Wild Wings. Sandwich places Subway, McAlister's Deli and many more. Just admitt that the only reason for this restaurant is the waitress and the lack of their clothing. The Truth!!

I have lived in Tyler most of my life and have enjoyed living here because our community is a very family friendly environment. If some perverted person wants to run a restaurant like DD they have the wrong city. There is Atlantic City, Las Vegas, New York City and many more. If anyone thinks that this restaurant is only selling food than they are trying to lie to themselves and everyone else.The only reason a restaurant like this can stay in business is by having half naked women working there.

why do we condemn a place, that wants to operate a business here in Tyler, that happens to have waitresses that look like Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders or Daisy Duke? What's the difference? The business either thrives, or goes belly up, simple as that.

Tyler is the most dogmatic, repressive, narrow-minded, bible-thumping place I have ever seen. It almost feels like Utah. This “covering of the sign” thing is utterly laughable. Hypocrisy reins!

what bothers me is that these folks claim to be political "conservitives" until something they dont like shows up and then they go running to "big brother" to settle their wants. we are free people, and should freely be able to determine the fate of the business in the free market, not in courts drivin by a shadow government of local hypocrites in a kangaroo fashion!

I moved to Tyler to enjoy life, liberty and the prursuit of happiness, eating wings, and drinking a beer at Double D's is not going to taint your children.

it's definetly better than the 4,000 mexican food places in tyler! variety its the spice of life :)

You mean you hypocrite want to be Christians in Tyler do not defend the U.S. Constitution and Capitalism? I thought this was a Free Country or is it only free for those who bow to your way of thinking? As a Capitalist if you are one then you should know that if you do not like the place then do not go there and if you are a Christian then teach your children what you want about places like the DD. You have no right to force your religious beliefs upon anyone.

Nor do they have a right to force their business upon you. Are they? Are they making you come to the DD and spend your money...NO, are they making you watch their advertisements?,,,,NO because you have the ability to tune them out or turn them off any time you chose too.

We moved to Tyler to raise our children. We don't favor a place like this anywhere around Tyler. These places take a toll on american families by promoting immorality, drunkeness & discontentment within the home which leads to unwanted pregnancies and divorce. Wake up Tyler & Wake up America. Kids suffer from broken homes, I know by experience; Dad's need to be responsible & stand up for what's right.

no body asked you to move to tyler for those things, and if tyler has or is becomeing something you dont agree with, please exercise the same freedom that allowed you to move here to move out.

"Promoting discontentment within the home which leads to unwanted pregnancies and divorce." How does that happen? Do you like go home and get mad at your wife 'cause she's not as endowed or is it more like a pavlovian effect where you sweep her into the "conference area"? If you rationalize the ill effects as you describe from a visit to this type of "young persons" restaurant then I believe the good lord put a gas pedal in your car to drive on by, and in your case, you might need to floor it !

As TRU granted a lease to CRO it will be difficult to maintain this injunctive order. Provided Judge Kennedy is not acting upon her own self interest to be re-elected in our Christian consevative community and a review of the lease proves no misrepresentation then, Double D's will stand for Done Deal.
