When pulling a travel trailer, it's not always easy to find a good place to stop for lunch. This was a good choice. I had the soup and salad bar. The soup was the taco 3 bean and it was delicious. The salad bar was very good and I especially liked the fact that they had real lettuce - not... More

Truck drivers stopped after delivery for breakfast. Chopped steak and eggs for hubby and big bowl of oatmeal for me. Only disappointment was no fruit option, just cranberries and raisins but it was large and delicious. Service great. Lots of selection. Just need some fresh fruit added to menu.

Arriving it is what you would think, a truck stop restaurant; however, this place distinguishes itself with their staff and service. Everyone is friendly, from management all the way down to the service staff. The food was great! I enjoyed eating here because the people made me feel welcome. Drinks were always full and the wait time was minimal at... More

I found that the salad bar had a good selection of veggies, pasta salads, and fruits. The main course was lacking flavor and seemed to be "warmed up".

I loved everything, sweet lady waited on us. I ask for something to be a little different from the menu and told her I was sorry to be picky. She replied that is one of the easiest request we have received, so nice. Drink glasses never empty. Great food

Appreciated the fresh offerings at the soup/salad bar. One of the drivers at our table had the Ham & Scalloped Potato entree that he said was every bit as good as it looked. Vanessa our waitress was attentive without hovering over us & kept all our glasses filled as we lingered over lunch, waiting for a phone call to confirm... More

I think orionrebel21's review of this restaurant hit the nail on the head. First, let me say that the picture shown here is NOT the place we ate at--it is a TA Country Pride restaurant that when you come in says it is the Buck Horn family Restaurant. It is the closest eating place to the Days Inn off Exit... More
