5. Petro in Weatherford, TX.
4. Newell Travel Plaza Newton, KS.
3. Travel America, Vero Beach, FL.
“The best T/A I’ve been to is the one in Vero Beach, Fl. Their buffet is really nice. Last time I was there, they had fried fish and fried chicken on the buffet, which I never eat because of the obvious reasons that they usually suck on a buffet. But the waitress suggested that I would enjoy them, and she was right. The batters for each are made on premises, and were really good. And they used a different batter for each, so it didn’t taste the same. Everything tasted home made. I was in there a few months ago, and they had Perogies on the buffet, and they were sauteed in butter and onions, just like my mom used to make. I think i gained 5 pounds just off of them. So, next time you’re heading down I-95 to south Florida, stop and check them out. You’ll be glad you did.”
