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."
