Two New Restaurants Open in Downtown Henderson
In the Spring of 2019, not one, but two new restaurants have opened in Downtown Henderson. These restaurants represent another step toward increasing traffic in Henderson’s National Register Historic District downtown.
Richard and Wendy Kizer have opened up Kizer’s Grill at 127 E. Main Street at the corner of E. Main and N. Marshall. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch weekdays and all day Saturdays and Sundays. Richard Kizer is a culinary veteran, with experience owning and working in a restaurant in Bullard, and at a Texas Roadhouse and a Logan’s Roadhouse, both in Midland, TX. He has also been involved in produce distribution in Midland and he worked his way through college cooking for the public.
The restaurant serves a daily lunch special, great steaks, salmon, chicken breasts, burgers and much more! The daily specials are listed on their Facebook page.
Operating hours are Tuesday-Thursday from 8 AM – 2:00 PM and Friday & Saturday 8 AM – 7:30 PM, Sunday 8 AM – 2:00 PM.. They can also cater special events.
The second new downtown restaurant is Mac’s Burgers which has been opened by Kelly and Gary McMillan at 106 W. Main.
Kelly McMillan had a dream that one day she wanted to own a restaurant. Even though they were living in Fort Worth, McMillan’s husband Gary was from Henderson and they wanted to relocate to Henderson, so the rest is history. The McMillan’s found a great location in downtown Henderson, constructed their dream restaurant and named it after their last name; hence, Mac’s Burgers. The artwork on the wall is worth a look-see also and was created by the talented Gary McMillan.
The menu includes a good variety of burger options including the “Mac’s Special” 1/3 lb. burger with a side and drink for $10.00. Sides include waffle cut sweet potato fries, mac & cheese, onion rings and French fries.
The restaurant is open Tuesday – Saturday 11 AM – 8 PM. Kids 10 and under eat FREE on Tuesdays (with each regular priced meal). They technically don’t cater yet, but could for a small group. Call if you have a special group meeting or get-together and they can accommodate you at the restaurant. The restaurant phone number is 903-722-2193. Stop by and see them soon!
