limited menu, staffed by 80 year olds, it is a good place for doing ethnographic research on local bikers, smokers, drunks.

The food is absolutely delicious!! Whether you order wings and pizza, or a steak dinner, you'll be delighted!! The owner/ cook certainly knows what she's cooking!! And her onion soup is out of this world!! The batter on her fried food baskets is scrumptious, as are her reuben sandwiches!! Yes- I would highly recommend a dinner at the Turnpike!!

By far, this place is one of the best for good food and great company! Mady, one of the owners is an excellent cook and serves the best pizza and hamburgers you could imagine. If you have not been there recently, you must stop by and try it. You can't beat it, even with your own homecooking!

Many times we have made the trip to the TPI to enjoy some of the varied menu items. This could be a home made burger with all the toppings, an excellent NYC quality pizza, the best Buffalo wings this side of Buffalo, a 16oz grilled steak with home cut Idaho potato french fries, or a home made soup and the...
