When we have a chance to eat a meal together on the road, we try to avoid chain eateries.
Instead, we usually take a chance on local diners and such.
Especially if they are NOT in a truck stop!
McAlester, Oklahoma is a town that we have ended up in several times and even without a trailer now and then. That is always a treat, because we can park in parking lots not made for trucks.
Angels Diner was one of our best finds this year.
Just take a look at this place . . .
You can really tell that some good food is coming from behind that counter.
I had a patty melt smothered in delish grilled onions and Tony had a frito pie that would hold it's own in Texas.
We also got to have one of my all time favorite starters - fried green beans with spicy dipping sauce. Oh man . . . do I love those!
I love love love homemade pies.
We will definitely be visiting Angels again.
