This not-so-typical, licensed diner is part of the Roadking Travel Centre, a truck stop offering a variety of amenities for travellers. You come here not only for eats, but also to experience the big-rig culture. Included in the vicinity is a motel, games room, dry cleaner, coin laundry, truck wash and a Tim Horton’s. As you walk into the establishment, the old-school booths and cafeteria-style tables resemble a scene from the 70s. The menu is short and sweet and the waitresses seem to fill the role of your favourite auntie.
Handy Pit Stop
Shifter’s Restaurant & Bar is a hang out for all sorts, from families on the move to truckers looking for a hot meal. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and makes a good lunch or after work stop for those working in the industrial area of town. They have been in business since 1989, and there is both a restaurant and a lounge depending on the type of atmosphere you are looking for.
Hardy Hot Meals
