Home-style Cafes -- I-80 from Lincoln NE through Wyoming

KC-Jane | Jul 31, 2004 11:39 PM

I'll soon be making my annual trek from KC to Idaho and return via the same route a few months later.

I'd love to hear about any home-style cafes or truckstops along the I-80 corridor from Lincoln, Nebraska and all across Wyoming. Looking for cheap, clean, friendly and safe -- and decent food! Not more than a mile off the interstate is preferred.

My usual stops over the many years I've done this trip are Misty's or Runza in Lincoln, Ole's Big Game Restaurant & Lounge in Paxton, NE or a truck stop in Ogalalah, NE, and Sarah's Bakery & Cafe in Laramie, WY (sadly no longer in business). Other than that, I graze as needed at assorted Flying J's. I do fast food drive-thru only if necessary and prefer to avoid them.

I'd really like to find some different spots. Particularly interested in Cheyenne and/or Laramie areas.

Any suggestions, please? Thanks in advance!
