Petro Iron Skillet Restaurants Once Again Celebrate Their Heritage with Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day

Chicken Fried Steak Meals Nationwide for $5.99 on October 26

TravelCenters of America LLC, (TravelCenters), operator of Petro Stopping Centers® branded travel centers, 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. The day was proclaimed by the Texas legislature in 2011 in honor of “that exceptional dish that elevates the hearty flavor of beef to new heights by coating it in batter and breading and frying it until the ingredients are melded in a blissful union.”

“Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day has become well-known throughout the years and many restaurants all over the country have jumped on the celebration band wagon,” said John Ponczoch, Senior Vice President, Restaurant Operations. “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 taste this Texas tradition.”

From 6 a.m. through 10 p.m. on Monday, October 26, 2015, participating Petro Iron Skillet Restaurants will offer dine-in guests their choice of a chicken fried steak breakfast or dinner for just $5.99. The breakfast chicken fried steak meal is served with two fresh eggs cooked any style, toast or biscuits, and the choice of home fries, hash browns or grits. The dinner option comes with the Iron Skillet’s famous homemade mashed potatoes and gravy.
