As we reported last week, Stanley’s Famous Pit Bar-B-Que in Tyler won the “Best Pork Ribs in Texas” a couple of weekends ago at the Texas Monthly BBQ Festival in Austin!  Today, November 9th, Tyler Mayor Barbra Bass has officially proclaimed it “Stanley’s Famous Pit Bar-B-Que Appreciation Day” in the city of Tyler — more after the jump.

This is the second year in a row for Stanley’s to win the award at the annual BBQ festival.  In addition, to “Best Pork Ribs in Texas” they have also been named on of Texas Monthly’s “50 Best Places to Eat BBQ” in both 2003 and 2008.  They also earned “Beat Barbeque” by County Line Magazine in 2007 and Mix 93-1 listeners voted Stanley’s “Best BBQ in Tyler” during an on-line survey earlier this summer.

Congratulations to Nick Pencis and his crew at Stanley’s! Thanks for making us proud!
