The TA Restaurant Group, a division of TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), has announced it will offer its famous chicken fried steak in its Petro Iron Skillet® Restaurants across the country for just $5.99 on October 26 in honor of Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day.

“For chicken fried steak lovers everywhere, this day is a momentous occasion,” said John Ponczoch, Senior Vice President of TA Restaurant Group. “Petro and the Iron Skillet were born in El Paso, Texas, in 1975, and we want to honor our Texas heritage by serving the very best hand-cut, hand-breaded chicken fried steak so folks across America have the opportunity to celebrate the culinary culture of the Lone Star State!”
