I just noticed we have so many cool travelouges,its time we have a thread specifically for Dhabas/Highway stops across our country.

To get this going,i will quickly list a few popular ones in North :


Haveli,GT Road (Jalandhar) - Excellent Punjabi food.

Cheetal Grand, Delhi Mussorie Road ( Khatauli) - Serves fresh Juices,breakfast,etc * shuts quite early iirc

Dhabas @ Murthal - GT Road (Outskirts of Delhi,enroute to Chandigarh) - Must try the Parathas here

Jain Shikanji,Modinagar ( Near Meerut,enroute to Dehradun/mussoorie) - Only Serves "Masala fresh lime Soda" *Not a dhaba,just a quick 2 min stop.
Haveli is good and very popular among locals and visitors. Next time when you're in or around Jalandhar, try Lucky Dhaba right next to Haveli (if you're traveling from Delhi\Ludhiana\Phagwara, its second to Haveli). This dhaba servers excellent veg food (awesome breakfast too and the elaichi tea is REAL YUM) and has been there since donkeys years. People have forgotten this place since Haveli has opened but this place still serves lip-smacking food.

There's another place called Rangla Punjab, again next door to Haveli (just before haveli, if you're traveling from Delhi\Ludhiana\Phagwara). I've never been there but friends and family liked it. Its less of a dhaba and more like cultural museum that offers full Punjabi cuisine along with live punjabi dance. They have life size statues portraying traditional Punjabi life and its more popular among NRIs.

Punzabi (or Jalandhari )

During engineering days, every time I travel back to my hometown all KSRTC buses used to stop at Tadas @ Hotel shanthi (or some thing like that) between Hubali and Sirsi. Adjucent to this Hotel was Dhaba. I always used to go there and have dal roti and masala lassi! Till day I have never had better roti and dal than this dhaba!

There is one called Giani da dhaba at Dharampur, famous for lip smacking Tandoori chicken, Butter Chicken, lemon chicken, Kadi-chawal and some amazing paranthas.

They also have confectionery items starting from chocolates, juices & fruit beers

I'm a regular on this route and have given up on trying to find a decent food place. Kamat, in my opinion is avoidable. Only decent place is Balkar Singh Punjabi Dhaba near about Sira, but its really difficult to locate when you are doing triple digit speeds. I usually end up having lunch at Aishwarya Fort in Chitradurga town. Good fare and has both veg and non veg options.

Hi,
I have tried a few times to get in touch with NDTV / Rocky and Mayur to see if we can get a downloadable GPS track log of thier various food joints. I must regretfully confess I have never got a reply till date, for that matter not even an acknowledgment. For sure, it is not a complaint... If some of us could make an effort on the same, it would have been a wonderful gpx to download and use it as custom POI on our gps....

I know the one i am mentioning below is not in India, but it deserves a special mention.

There is a Punjabi Dhaba near Dixon, CA (USA). It is around 50 miles on US 80 East when going towards Sacramento or South Lake Tahoe.

We did a dinner buffet there and food was fantastic. A must stop-by if you are visiting this side or passing by.

Quoting BaCkSeAtDrIVeR from http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...ml#post1542508 (A guide : Eating out in Kerala)

"The Punjabi Dhaba, behind Bata on Broadway, is strict veg, and is very short on space, good on quality and tends to be very busy. Nice place, if homesick northeners want authentic N. Indian cooking. Only place in Kerala where I have got proper lassi. Will be very crowded on days Navy ships are in port."

I can vouch for this place at Cochin, for it is extremely delicious (oh, btw, I am a fan of both punjabi food and punjabi kudis) and cost effective.

I used to drive down from bangalore to orissa and these are the places i like to stop for food.

- After 31 KM from Rajhmundry - Orissa Dhaba will be on right side
- After 20-30 KM from Vizag good place to have a relaxed lunch on the left side
- Chilka Dhaba and Chilka Hotel in Balugaon. Tasty prawn and crab. Both on left side. Chilka Dhaba before balugaon and Chilka Hotel After Balugaon
- Mati Handi Mutton Dhaba 7 KM before Cuttack and one more place around 12 KMbefore cuttack both on right hand side
- Rasulgarh Dhaba left side just after Bhubaneswar

All the Dhaba direction mentioned while you drive from Bangalore to cuttack

This is nice!!
points jotted for the next trip.

I have eaten a lot of "khatarnaak" food on the highways, but then, we always make it a point to not stop at ones which aint dhabas per se, but have grown fat and corporatised.

With women on travels, it'd be at places like cheetal and other biggies.
but when its just us guys, itd be at the first random one post ahunger pang!!
more fun that way.
just avoid the water, rest all gets cooked and killed, i say.

On Srisailam - Hyderabad route, while returning form srisailam, some distance before mannanur forest check post, there is Baba Dhaba on the left side. These guys stock live country chickens. Once you select the bird of your choice, they slaughter it and cook & serve it within 45 minutes. Couple of months ago had visited this palce, this freshly cooked dish tastes awesome. Other routine Dhaba dishes are aslo avaialble.

Rotis are really bad here , rice and other dishes can be given a try

Sir I think it's legacy of Punjab. I would also recommend rukmini dhaba on thane Kalyan road just behind the second petrol pump on the right.
