If yall want the ABSOLUTE BEST steak ever on the road, come to the TA in Ontario, CA. I was so impressed with David the manager there. His culinary skills are so good he should open up his own restaurant. My standards for a steak are so high some of them could be very unrealistic, however he met those standards and then excedded them. Before my experience yesterday there was a tossup of the best steak I had ever had: West of the Mississippi was the TA in Lebo, KS at the intersection of US 75 and I-35, and East of the Mississippi was the 83 Diner in York, PA. This TA in Ontario, CA is better than those 2 combined.

I was so disappointed by the steak I got at the 49er I didn't dare take the chance. I was just there last week. Maybe next time.

Soooo many better options on the road than ta/petro steaks. I don't care how high your standards are there are much better options than those. that one in ontario may cook it good but there's more to a steak than cooking.

Boise stage stop in Boise Idaho... good quality meat, good cooking and good flavor plus they have some seriously high grade steaks but I haven't had them cause they're like $50 each.... little more than my trucker income can afford haha.

Not as easy to find with nearby truck parking but Texas roadhouse has really good steaks too.

For the money, I gotta agree with that. Ribs aren't to shabby either.

The Petro in Sparks, NV has a restaurant that isn't your garden variety Iron Skillet. Their porterhouse is simply to die for. It's spendy, but oh GAWD is it worth the money.

A little off topic, but I never noticed how much of a staple Mexican food was in my life until I started driving. To be honest I would kill just for a bowl of beans with a tortilla on the side haha.

On another note my cheapo self usually gets a chopped steak with eggs, became my new staple. Gotta slow down though, it's costing me haha.

I love that petro. Our yard is next door.

The Colorado Belle casino in Laughlin NV has a 16 oz T=bone steak dinner for $15.99 in their tap room / restaurant. You can usually park there on all but the busiest weekends. The Riverside also has a truck parking lot on the Bullhead City side of the river that comes up on Trucker Path. You can park there and Uber or take a cab over, the cab was actually cheaper.The rooms during the week are also only like $20 to $25. Kind of hard to pass up if you are in the area and have the time. LOL!

If you find yourself in Ontario, OR, there's a little hole in the wall Mexican restaurant next to the Pilot. Not the greatest in the world, but decent.

If you like good queso, there's a Moe's at the Pilot in Flatwoods, WV. Never been through in a truck, I just live close enough to go there every now and then.
