Bacon, Sausage, Potatoes and Kale are just some of the ingredients of Broadway Flying J Ellensberg's light and refreshing, Homade Tuscan style soup.

I've allways liked Flying J's but since they've been bought by Pilot they have gone with corporate chain style restaurants instead of the excellent home style restaurants with buffet restaurants they used to have, like the buffet at the Flying J in Great Falls Montana comes to mind. However, the Broadway Flying J's are still independent and have their own excellent restaurants. I was amazed by the soup at the Broadway Flying J in Ellensberg. If you are missing the good old days when truckstops had their own little "diner" style restaurant then you owe it to yourself to check out the excellent cooking at the Flying J's in Ellensberg or Spokane. You'll be glad you did.
Every day out here on the road I try to find some way of treating myself to something special. This morning as I pulled into Missoula I remembered this awesome tomato soup that the 4 B's restaurant chain used to have on the menu. I'm not sure the restaurant at the Crossroads truck stop is still called the 4 B's or what the story is with the 4 B's restaurant chain that used to be just about everywhere in Montana, but it still had the tomato soup and it tasted just as good as I remembered it.
