A year ago I wrote a very negative review complaining about too few pumps and cars parked at them while people shopped. One year later, and here at 42 beautiful new pumps. Well done I80, now you are truly a great truck stop.

A must see. There are three floors and many places to eat. Have fast-food chains and a sit down restaurant to pick from. The truckers store is amazing. The gift shop has many items and could easily buy family members each something. What a place to see.

Ok, it is cool having 2 full-size semi's inside the massive "store". And the sheer amount of car and truck schwag, plus the massive amount of "tourist" beads and bangles is worth gawking at for a little bit. However, we were underwhelmed by the "buffet" restaurant - I would skip that. If you're looking for food, either get something quick... More

Cool place to go to say you have been, buffet has decent food with decent customer service. Great place to kill an hour or so and stretch your legs. There is a trucking museum near by that is suppose to be nice but did not go

This is the mega-mall of truck stops. It is divided into a food court area, a gift shop area, etc. Forget something while packing? They've got you covered. You'll find clothing for any weather, in any size, incl. rain boots, flip-flops, cowboy boots. Everything from antifreeze & air freshener to lawn & garden decor. Need a unique or a traditional...

This place is usually awesome and it was also this time, but there is construction going on in the parking lot - which made parking difficult (somewhat). Many places to eat and a ton crap of stuff to look at. A perfect truck stop. They have a truckers museum that I did NOT visit but should as I am sure... More
