    Only meal I ever ate at chains was breakfast, as it easy to spot undercooked bacon and eggs.
    Old favorite was Whites in VA, but last I heard it became a chain :-/

    Where have you been?
    When Pilot bought out flying j, what 5-6 years ago, they closed all the flying j, restaurants. There is one left in rapid city,sd, but that is a ranchise flying j, so they left it open.

    Flying j had the best restaurants before the pilot buyout. But I don't eat truckstop anymore. Because of denny's subway or chesters fried chicken being the only choice I said screw the truck stop. I eat chick fil a or quility food. I can't do that mcnasty or that kind of stuff. The daisy duke cafe on 81 in TN was pretty good. And there are some other cafes around that are pretty good with truck parking

    Decent food at Daisy's, but you're life will be shortened still with second hand smoke. So it's kind of a push.

    You mean the guy that finished eating 2 hrs ago but is still sitting there gauking at the ladies thighs cause he never saw a woman in daisy dukes in person?

    So he just sits and smoke stick after stick. And coughs horribly while others are eating food and tipping the women
     
    Coover Thanks this.

    So good, we used to call it the Flying Laxative. You had to fly to the bathroom, in the middle of the meal, and afterwards, to prevent you from jet propulsion diarrhea.

    Their chicken fried steak was special to my nephew. It was cardboard flat, and took up the whole plate. He called it chicken fried Mary.

    Yea I've been in the bathroom brushing my teeth at different truck stops. And in come a guy either running or asking ppl to move. And as soon as the door closes you hear all kinds of splatter.

    Then you say to your self there is NO WAY HE GOT HIS PANTS DOWN THAT FAST. AND I KNOW HES SITTING ON THE BBARE SEAT. I would always say yelp the buffet found another victim out loud.
     
    Coover, Ougigoug and Knucklehead Thank this.
