Jax in Truckee, CA ~ Hwy I-80

I have a new favorite...!!!
 
2 weeks ago I was in Truckee, CA, on I-80, ejoying the Sierra scenery...and was looking for food...
 
The first place I stopped in was Mexican...but the taco's were $7 each, ala carte only, & no combo dishes appealed to me, so I left...
 
Tried the Covered Wagon cafe, but at $12 a pop for yer basic burger, I left...
 
I forgot about the summer tourista season in the Truckee / Lake Tahoe area, where city people pay outragous prices for only so-so fare...so I went south, across the railroad tracks...
 
And I found Jax ("Jax At The Tracks") Diner...it's a classic metal diner building that is larger than it looks...
 
I ordered a French Dip, and man was I surprised...it was HUGE...!!!
 
The roll must have been 5" x 9" or so, and it was loaded with meat...unlike many of the typical scrawny dips found elsewhere with skimpy portions of beef...
 
I almost couldn't finish it, it was that big, and I also had parmegean chips as a side and a milk shake (they also serve you the shake mixing can with more shake inside)
 
Serving staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeble...
 
As a guy I also appreciated the fact that the waitresses were good looking...
 
Jax is now on my "A list" of places to eat...
