I-20 Between Dallas and Van Horn
Hi, I'm a Los Angeles Hound. Before long I'm going to be driving from Dallas back home via Van Horn, Tucson, etc. I've got the route covered from about El Paso to L.A., but what about Dallas to Van Horn on Hwy 20. Any recommendations for a great lunch stop and then for dinner in Van Horn (where it looks like I'll be spending the night)? Thanks.
You'll be passing close to the best chicken fried steak in Texas. Mary's cafe in Strawn. Turn north on TX 16...it's only a couple miles off I-20. We usually lunch in Van Horn on our way to overnighting in Las Cruces and the only place we have eaten at is Chuy's, a so-so Mexican place noteworthy for the fact that John Madden always had his bus stop there to take out a particlular dish he liked. He dropped off a bunch of NFL memorabilia, which doesn't improve the food, but it makes the wait more interesting.
