1242 N Main St, Shamrock, TX 79079, USA
You can't actually fuel up here - or at least you couldn't when we stopped in summer 2013. But the beautiful and unique U Drop Inn cafe and Conoco gas station has been lovingly restored by the City of Shamrock, and it's worth veering off the I-40...

Walking into the Big Texan Steak Ranch, it's not its subtlety you'll be overwhelmed by. This is a restaurant unashamed of its theme, and its theme is: COWS. But if you can stomach the fake-y saloon style, it's worth it. Because the steaks are just...

201 S Walbaum Rd, Calumet, OK 73014, USA
Who would have thought it. We stopped at the Cherokee Trading Post and Restaurant in the middle of a long, long day on the I-40 for purely aesthetic reasons (we wanted to get our pictures taken by the big historical mural, ok?). And while the rest...
