Sweet ode to convoy grub

But Truckers grinds the breakfast gears

Despite these boners, Shell's is a great casual spot to revel in the pleasures of oysters, shrimp, or a sandwich (though not tried, the po' boy sandwiches looked inviting). The service is a bit awkward (orders were mixed up a couple of times), but it's consistently friendly and attentive. And dining here with an eye toward menu caution will almost certainly yield dividends, especially at Shell's reasonable prices.

Truckers Midtown Cafe. 3707 Lemmon; (214) 526-0188. Open daily 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
