Local Surprises

Here's a first for me.  Before today I had never been out to eat at a truck stop in my own town.  I heard good things about Omar's Hi Way Chef Restaurant, so when my sister came through town tonight, I suggested we try it out.  She likes to visit unique places and this place didn't disappoint.

I stole my sister's photo.
They serve breakfast, Mexican, Italian, American, and plenty of desserts including their famous DDHAP (deep dish hot apple pie) as seen on the Food Network.  I went in thinking that I would just get the apple pie but the smells wafting out the door made me want real food.  I ordered the chicken alfredo and my sister got some sort of Mexican breakfast plate.  The portions were huge and I brought home enough for lunch for the next two days.  I couldn't even think about dessert, unfortunately.  We will have to go back another time and maybe we can attack a DDHAP between the two of us.  If I don't eat all day I might be up for the challenge.  I should warn anyone who visits me.  We will be going out to eat at a truck stop!

It was a pleasant surprise. I should never go there for dinner though. I was too full to sleep!

I am a picky eater from New York and I found several items on all 3 menus which appeal to me. Tucson is a long way from NY but I'd welcome the chance to dine there with you, Daizy!

I'm a picky eater too, Dave. I figured I could just get apple pie but then I suddenly got hungry when we walked in.
