“Truck Stop right off of rt.80”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This place was sarted by the Romines family years ago. It is now owned by a corporation. It has lost some of its luster since the Romines family is no longer involved. The food is decent with a nice salad bar. The place has many museum quality pieces that are fun to look at. Good for late night brakfast skillet. They also have a gimmick burger called Ethyl if you eat it in the allowed amount of time it is free.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This restaurant is at a TA Truck Stop but please stop if you are hungry. This restaurant has wonderful food and a great atmosphere. It is very family friendly. The food is really good and the waitresses are so nice. What I love about this restaurant is all the antiques that are there. Ask for a booth the first time you go, because the table will have a glass top and underneath are lots of antiques that make for a wonderful conversation and your food will be there before you know it.

The helpings are quite generous. The meal I had I took 1/2 home and had it for two more meals. I am not much on leftovers but this was delicious and I could not throw it out.

They have there own bakery and you may purchase small meals that can be microwaved if you happen to be staying at a hotel close by.

This restaurant is an expectant surprise just because it is at a truck stop. Stop by you will be glad that you did.

R Place is open 24 hours, 365 days a year.

“The place to have breakfast.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Love to stop in at R Place for a meal but breakfast is my favorite. I believe they get their eggs locally cause they sure have a wonderful taste. No matter what you order there's always plenty.....pancakes the size of your dinner plate. Their bakery is almost to wonderful to pass up.

“Always as pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We are truckers and love when we get to the Morris area so we can enjoy "R" Place. The food is always good, the pastries to die for, the service friendly and love all the collectibles. Great place for families to gather too.
