We Have a “America’s Best Trucker Diner/Restaurant” Winner

Ranch Hand Cafe, Cleveland, TexasThe results are in and the winner is Mark. M in Texas and his favorite trucker diner/restaurant is Ranch Hand Café in Cleveland, Texas. Self-described as a “modest joint for homestyle Southern fare”, is about an hour north of Houston. Only open for lunch and dinner, their chicken fried steak comes in two sizes: extra large and large and they make banana from scratch. Denny’s receive the most votes, but we’re a sucker for small town cafes that serve chicken fried steak the size of Texas.
