A popular stop in NSW’s Northern Tablelands region continues to welcome truckies with open arms. Our Spy on the Road recently chatted with one of their friendly workers.
Born in Oregon in the USA, 33-year-old Orbin Dry has been down under since 2012. He works at the Deepwater Roadhouse and is one of the friendliest roadhouse workers you could ever meet. He couldn’t have been more helpful and courteous to us.
I stopped off at the Deepwater Roadhouse, which is located 40km north of Glen Innes, with my wife on a recent story run.
“I have worked here for some time and we get lots of truckies stopping off. We always treat people well and many come back,” Dry said.
The roadhouse opens until 9pm nightly and Dry says the main dine-in meals truckies order are mixed grills and steak.
“Others in a hurry get a coffee or a cold drink and then leave depending on their schedule,” he said.
Dry added that the roadhouse is privately owned and that some truckies stopped for a shower and to use the toilets.
They even get to read their latest copy of Big Rigs Newspaper when they stop by.
