I know everyone is on edge waiting on Taco Tico to open. Meanwhile.... I'm driving on 30 looking at the sign that says "Newks" wishing I was pulling in to order my half sandwich (shrimp po boy) and soup. Word on the TK streets is it's opening in December. * insert fornight dance*

Hands down, Newks Eatery is one of my favorite din din spots. Want something delish that's not too heavy? Newks is definitely the way to go. Newk’s has a diverse menu that delivers fresh-tossed salads, artisan pizzas, specialty toasted sandwiches, kettle batch soups, and desserts. FRESH! FRESH! FRESH! Newk’s has something for everyone to enjoy. Take a look at their Menu from the website.

Newk’s Eatery quickly became a favorite in the Arklatex with locations in Longview, Tyler and the Shreveport/Bossier area. Now TK! Now... as your Best Friend At Work, it's only right that I tell you the best of the best things I enjoy on Newk's menu.

Want a good sandwich? Below are my top three:

1. Shrimp Po Boy

2. Newks "Q"

3. Chicken Salad

Want some really good soup? Below are my top three.

1. Lobster and Crab Bisque

2. Chicken Tortilla Soup

3. Loaded Baked Potato Soup (no bacon for me)

When it comes to my favorite pizza, I  haven't been able to deviate from the infamous Barbeque Chicken Pizza! OMG it would be like cheating on a favorite boyfriend.

Regarding Newks's salads, you absolutely can't go wrong! BUT unless you're starving, you better have someone to share it with. Yumo 2.0

So COME ON ALREADY DECEMBER 1, 2018!! I need my Newks fix!
