TravelCenters of America has launched a new limited-edition Comfort Classics menu, available at Country Pride, Iron Skillet and participating full-service restaurants. The theme of the new recipes is the country’s heritage.

One of the featured dishes, Maira's meatloaf, dates back to medieval Europe, when fifth-century versions of the dish included fruits, nuts and seasoning. In the past, it was originally served as a breakfast food. But over time, the recipe evolved to highlight more savory flavors, and by the late 1870s, it became an iconic American dinner. It is named after TA’s corporate executive chef, Maira Morales.

In addition to Maira’s meatloaf, another comfort food option on the menu is Cleveland Clinic-approved Untraditional Spaghetti and Meatballs, made with whole wheat spaghetti and a light marinara sauce.

Comfort Classics:

  • Maira’s Meatloaf
  • Road Trip Pot Roast
  • Untraditional Spaghetti & Meatballs*
  • Road King Ribs
  • Bread Bowl Chili

*Healthy option recommended by Cleveland Clinic.

  • TravelCenters of America is No. 29 on CSP’s 2023 Top 202 ranking of U.S. convenience-store chains by company-owned store count.

TravelCenters of America, acquired by bp in May, is operator and franchisor of the TA, Petro Stopping Centers and TA Express travel center brands. The Westlake, Ohio-based company has more than 280 locations nationwide.
