We always stop at the Iron Skillet for lunch or dinner on our trips to Reno. They have the best chicken fried steak. They split it at no charge and the wait staff is always friendly. I am so glad we tried them about 4 years ago while staying next door, it's a great place to eat

Yes, its a restaurant in a truck stop, but don't let that deter you. The food is good, it comes out fast, and the service is very friendly. Maegan (sp?) was our waitress both times and she treated us like she'd known us for years. We ate here twice during my week stay in the area. I had the french... More

Nice restaurant. Good food. I had breakfast for dinner and my wife had the buffet. After driving for ten hours it was a nice sit down meal at a truck stop type of place but I think families would do just fine there as well.

Lots of food because it's a truck stop. Wish I'd have been hungry enough for the buffet, it looked fantastic. I had the open faced chicken sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy on a garlic bread- it was worth way more than they charged,

Iron Skillet is truck-stop-meets-family dining. A lot of truckers stop here on their way to their destinations. The food is good and there are a lot of unique decorative accents to keep your attention. The only downside is having to negotiate through a tiny walkway in the trucker's section to get to the restaurant. It sometimes get congested.

The food was good. It is hard to find a sit down rest. To eat at. We travel a lot with r job and to find a family restaurant is very hard. We drive truck and can't get to the family places easy.

Very good food - not just a truck stop. Menu extensive in addition to buffet. Seating separate for truckers and other clients.

The best thing about this meal was that the salad was cold and crisp. Beyond that, everything was down hill, FAR downhill. The salad bar needed clean-up as there were cross-contaminations from one item to the next. The atmosphere was non existent and the facility wasn't what you would call sparking clean, under our table was a used dinner napkin.... More

Best Western highly recommended the Iron Skillet and what a great meal. It is a truck stop and if truckers stop to eat, you know it will be good. The service was great, food great and good prices. They gave a discount if you show your room key at the Best Western.

The Iron Skillet in Corning is a great choice for breakfast. The restaurant is clean and inviting, the service is friendly and efficient and the chicken fried steak is superb. There is enough food on one plate to satisfy two hungry seniors.
