Nestled inside the Sacramento 49er Travel Plaza, Silver Skillet Restaurant fills beleaguered bellies with homestyle American fare cooked 24 hours a day. A tour of the 150-plus menu items begins with a diner-designed appetizer combo amalgamating three taste-bud-tickling starters from a lineup of usual suspects including jumbo hot wings, chili cheese fries, and Stephen Baldwin. Pulled pork and cheese wrap themselves in a tortilla cocoon and transform into a chimichanga once fried to a golden brown and outfitted with sides of sour cream and salsa. More than 20 sandwich, wrap, and burger options tempt diners who prefer their food bound in bready book jackets, such as the grilled-prime-rib sandwich served au jus with garlic butter. Chefs slow-roast 12-ounce cuts of tender prime rib seasoned with horseradish and hold down levitating flatware with a 16-ounce porterhouse steak on the Hungry Man's platter. Beneath the flaky crust of the chicken pot pie, a creamy sauce cuddles plentiful poultry, served fresh from the oven and ready to eat or frame and display in one's pie collection.
Silver Skillet Restaurant
Nestled within Sacramento Travel Plaza—a truck wash and repair center with laundry machines, WiFi, and a game room—Silver Skillet Restaurant churns out meals 24 hours a day every day of the year, fueling guests who are driving cross-country, harvesting crops, or just strolling down the streets where they live. Both the food and the decor draw inspiration from the diners of the 1950s, harking back to a time when life was simpler and math hadn’t yet been invented. That being said, modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs help members of the current generation feel at home as well. After sliding into one of the purple booths, guests peruse a menu filled with more than 150 items, including barbecued ribs, build-your-own beef burgers, open-faced sandwiches, and classic, down-home breakfasts. Root-beer floats and old-fashioned sundaes conclude meals, evoking memories of yesteryear soda shops and the three-malt business lunch.
