Driving across the country, we stopped here for lunch because it was right off I-40, making it convenient for travelers and locals alike. It’s a chain restaurant, so if you been to one elsewhere, you’ll know what to expect — a Texas-style steak house with large portions of traditional American fare. I got the half sandwich and soup entree. The shaved prime rib was well seasoned and tender, with a savory taste enhanced by the au jus. Topped with provolone cheese, mushrooms and onions in a soft, spongey roll, it was plenty filling with the soup. The soup I ordered was the lobster and shrimp chowder. Light on lobster with only slightly more shrimp, it was dominated by potatoes in a creamy, dense broth.
