Taste of Lufkin

Just as soon as the doors opened, hundreds piled into the Pitser Garrison Civic Center with wide eyes and empty stomachs. From the heartiest dinners to the sweetest desserts, 18 different eateries put their goodies out for display.

"It's to show off restaurants in Lufkin or eating establishments and raise money to go back into the community," said coordinator Mary Gill.

Meanwhile taste testers going back for more say they come back year after year.

"Well I've been here for several years and it's always really really good," said Pam Martinez.

With each restaurant putting out several tasty treats, can you really try them all?

"Oh no no no. You can't possibly eat something from every place," said Carolyn Booth.

"I'm going to try all of them! I promise you I'm going to try all of them," said Claude Smithhart.

Whether they tried them all or not, they definitely had a good and filling time making the effort.
