Hitting the Road: Town Haul Diner, Harrison

2014-07-24T15:23:00Z 2014-07-24T16:59:11Z Hitting the Road: Town Haul Diner, HarrisonBy JACI WEBB jwebb@billingsgazette.com The Billings Gazette

Where is it?: Harrison, 12 miles north of Norris Hot Springs on Highway 287 and south of Cardwell.

Details: “Harrison is a town on the way to somewhere else,” one reviewer wrote. For the hungry traveler, it’s worth driving out of your way a few miles to get to this homey diner. It’s like stepping into the ’50s with the shiny Formica tables. “This is what a small town diner should be,” another reviewer wrote. I agree.

What makes it special?: The day I stopped in with my family for breakfast, two cowboys were sitting at the counter looking over the menu. One was explaining to the other what the daily special, eggs Benedict, was. It’s that kind of mix — humble and folksy on the one hand, fine eats on the other. The Town Haul raises its own beef and pork and the eggs Benedict, which is hollandaise sauce over a fried egg with a thick slice of ham underneath, was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted. My mouth is watering now just thinking about it.
