I was driving from San Jose over to the 5 freeway and I was getting pretty hungry so I pulled off in Santa Nella and I found the Petro Diner there. I was looking for a sit down kind of place that would be quick and this place fit the bill perfectly!
It was huge inside and very yellow! This is a big truck stop so it is one of those places that is comfortable for truckers while they are out there on the road. I went ahead and ordered the Steer burger with mixed vegetables and that came along with a trip to the soup and salad bar.
The steer burger was essentially a large sized hamburger smothered in gravy and topped with onions. For me it was perfect. I am staying away from carbs so a big chunk of tasty meat and some veggies was right up my alley.
After I was done with my meal I was ready to tackle the 5 hour drive down to Los Angeles. I did not have the urge to pull over for a snack once lol!
