Was in Kilgore for a week on business and would have loved to visit more, but did what I could considering we didnt get out until 5 or 5:30 each day. Ate a Char-Burger Stock-Ade one day after reading good reviews about it, and was not disapointed. They were promoting a new in-house salad dressing and I ordered a burger and a salad instead of fries - with the new dressing. Loved it. Service there was friendly.
I had read about the oil derricks and the oil boom but was still astounded to see the large derricks looming over the downtown area. I got out, walked around, read some plaques. Very nice Kilgore. I understand that the derricks are all lit up during the Christmas time. I would love to go back & see that. I shot lots of pictures of the derricks over the buildings and then went back at night and shot some more pics with the tops lit up.
I saw lots of stores and would have loved to shop some but time was an issue since most were closed when we'd get free in the evenings.
Beautiful little downtown. Kilgore should be proud of themselves for preserving their heritage as well.
