Favorite "Ride to Eat" Destinations?

I, like many of you, enjoy eating in really out of the way places while traveling. Anybody care to post their favorite eateries while riding off the beatin' path?

I partial to The Shed in Edom, Texas http://www.theshedcafe.com. Best home cooking in the state with really great pie!

Where else can I go to get some good food while on the road... or beyond!

Only open Friday & Saturday nights, 5-10 but their 16oz sirloin is super. Prices are very reasonable.

Oklahoma: Bad Brad's in Pawhuska. It's also up by the tall grass plains which is some good scenery so I hear. Easy lunch ride from Tulsa.

I have on good authority heard that the prime rib is the only way to go. This is what I got last time.


Arkansas: Oark! Day ride from Tulsa and 23(if it's not shit) and 215 are some great asphalt.

Oark burger.


Honestly one of the best burgers I have had ever.

Catfish Cabin in Eureka! Also a great day ride, one which I plan on doing in a few weeks when we get a good 75+ degree day going on. Most of the roads around there are pretty kick ass as well. 12/125/Rockhouse road/90 out of MO.




I'm also a sucker for taco shacks in parking lots. Those normally are pretty good.

Oark

Oark is hard to beat and one of my favorite rides for a nice lunch ride, one of the best burgers you will find and good people.

Theres a cafe in Mt Judea I live to visit occasionally.
Its a good halfway point for gas and grub after visiting Falling Water Falls.

Ride to eat destinations eh?

1. Lunch in Oark for me. I love their chicken fried steaks and hamburgers and of course buttermilk pie! I have had most everything on the menu and have yet to find something I disliked.

2. Breakfast at the Smokehouse in Eureka Springs. Best damn breakfast anywhere bar none.

3. Mama Dean's Soul Food in Fayetteville. Yum Yum...best soul food for 500 miles...

Have to give the Shed a try since it is almost local. I've heard great things about dinner at http://www.fourwindssteakhouse.com/9601.html along I20 on the way back to the Big D.
