Puppy Chow is One of the Summer Blizzard Treats at DQ

The NEW Peanut Butter Puppy Chow Blizzard® Treat is the May Blizzard of the Month at DQ restaurants in #tylertx

“Puppy Chow” is the moniker for a popular, old-school-style homemade snack with cereal, melted chocolate, and peanut butter. Where’d the name come from? Beats us. 

What we do know is that it’s doggone delicious. And that was all the inspiration needed to create the NEW Peanut Butter Puppy Chow Blizzard Treat. One taste of the crispy peanut butter puppy chow pieces and Choco Chunks, expertly blended with world-famous soft serve and peanut butter topping, and you’ll be howling for more.  

In addition to the Peanut Butter Puppy Chow Blizzard, the Summer Blizzard Treat Menu at participating DQ locations includes featuring Blizzard the NEW Oreo® Brookie, Cotton Candy, S’mores, and Choco-Dipped Strawberry.

Nashville Chic Station Opens

Nashville Chic Station Hot Chicken is opening at 6500 S. Broadway in Tyler. We were lucky enough to sample their Nashville-style spicy chicken and their special sauce. There is nothing like this in Tyler – featuring chicken tenders, nuggets, sandwiches, and wings. All are spicy, juicy, and very good.

The New Jalitos Ranch Hungr-busters Returns to DQ

Fans can always count on DQ® restaurants in Texas to come up with some tasty, Texas-inspired deliciousness. In this case, that’s the Jalitos® Ranch Hungr-Buster® – a mouthwatering Texas masterpiece that brings the heat. 

The action starts with a full-quarter-pound grilled beef patty and garden-fresh lettuce, served up with creamy jalapeño ranch dressing and melty pepper jack cheese, then crowned with crispy jalitos between two buttery toasted buns. 

What are jalitos? Pronounced “ha-LEE-tos,” they are jalapeno strips crispy-fried to spicy perfection – a brilliant take on the Capsicum annuum chili pepper so prevalent in the southwest. When atop the classic Hungr-Buster, these zesty slivers of peppery goodness deliver a mild-to-medium punch and a zesty, satisfying crunch that’s so good, so irresistible, you’ll wish you could put them on everything!

The Jalitos Ranch Hungr-Buster is available through May 22, 2023.

Opening Soon

Quite a few restaurants are opening in #tylertx. Details are limited but here is what we have observed:

Chicken Salad Chic Next to Hobby Lobby to Open Soon

Chicken Salad Chick is opening next to Hobby Lobby at 4710 S Broadway Avenue Tyler, TX 75703 soon.

This is touted as “THE place for chicken salad lovers to rejoice! We’ve taken this Southern favorite to a whole new level with 12 flavors of chicken salad served from the heart. We make our delicious chicken salad by hand every morning, using only premium chicken tenderloin.

Ohayo Sushi & 2nd Location of NobiliTea

Ohayo Sushi, a seafood restaurant, and NobiliTea, the specialty tea shop, have both filed building permits seeking to house each of the businesses at 6205 S Broadway Ave. 

Nobilitea will be constructing a new building in the old Traditions parking lot. This new building will need to have its own new address, Rodriguez said.

Ohayo Sushi has already placed signs on the property announcing its incoming arrival to Tyler. The signs advertise seafood, sushi, grill and all-you-can-eat service. There’s an Ohayo Sushi restaurant in Webster near Houston; however, it’s unknown if that restaurant is connected to the Tyler location. 

Golden Chick New Location

Located where the old Long John Silver’s used to be across from Broadway Square Mall, a sign has been placed and construction has begun on a new location for Golden Chicken.
