Thanksgiving is already here and we gladly welcome the most turkey-filled time of the year! We thank all the members of the trucking industry who have been hard at work shipping turkeys all across the nation. About 46 million were delivered all over just so people can enjoy a traditional meal with their families.
If you are going to be OTR this holiday we hope that when you get the chance to go home you will be surrounded by family and friends to enjoy your own special turkey dinner. However, you can still enjoy a turkey meal on the road.
Cook Your Own Meal?
Of course, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can try cooking a meal right in your rig.
Our team tried just that this year with mixed results. Check out our attempt to make a Thanksgiving meal with nothing but truckstop items below!
Where Truckers Can Find Turkey
But if you want to take a break from chaotic Thanksgiving travel to enjoy your own turkey lunch or dinner complete with a slice of pie then you can head to a restaurant like Cracker Barrel. Cracker Barrels usually provide excellent truck parking and have a comfortable, at-home atmosphere to make your Thanksgiving meal warm and welcoming.
You can also head to Denny’s for an excellent turkey meal. Because a lot of truck stops like Flying J have Denny’s built-in then it will make for a convenient stop to rest, shower, enjoy some turkey, and more.
Other notable places serving up awesome Thanksgiving meals include Iron Skillet, Country Pride, and more.
But what if we told you that there are places to score free turkey? Hold onto your britches, because it’s true! Head to the Boise Stage Shop in Boise Idaho off of I-84 exit 71 for a free turkey dinner with trimmings.
You can also head to the Cowboy Cafe in Lyman, Wyoming for an all-inclusive turkey dinner. You get all the good sides like stuffing, a dinner roll, potatoes, and even a slice of pumpkin pie. Just show your CDL at these locations to enjoy the free food.
