This Manor stalwart has taken traditional roadhouse food to a delicious new level. Try the green eggs and ham, but don't miss the comfort food for lunch and dinner. This place is worth the drive.
When you need your Lone Star cold, your chicken-fried steak hot, and the ghost of Ernest Tubb on your shoulder, the Spoke is it.

Locals who lament the scarcity of down-home dinettes these days, who search for that perfect platter of "meat and two", should take heart. The former home of Sallie's, just such a beloved joint, is now polished up and slinging three hots, seven days a week. Great folks, good food, go there.
