The Lunch Box is a nice alternative to the ubiquitous fast-food options that line Interstate 30. Although the cheeseburgers and fries we watched making their way from the kitchen to the dining room looked delicious, one of us was thrilled to find a grilled chicken salad on the menu. The other was delighted to discover a stick-to-the-ribs daily special: meat loaf with a side of fried okra, a baked potato, a green salad, and a yeast roll (drink and dessert are included in this under-ten-bucks special).
