  • This was a nice break from the road! The museum has some great classic cars, motorcycles and memorabilia! Also a good place for gas and a snack!  more »
  • This is the only truck stop I've been to with an Elvis collection. Sure, there were cars, and other celebrity collections but I was all about the Elvis!  more »
  • There was a decent amount of pumps out front. This place has a huge food and drink selection. They even had hot/fresh food such as soup, Subway, and what looked to be some kind of Asian food. The rest...  more »
  • My husband and I are both retired combat Veterans and we're traveling in our RV and this was the perfect stop before coming into Texas. We had plenty of room for the night and in the morning we went inside to visit the museum and eat some breakfast. It was a nice was to wake up and explore before we got back on the road. We did notice that some truckers didn't like us parking here by trying to block us in by parking in non parking spots, but really fellas that's just childish we are all sharing the road and need to be more cordially with each other. If you're trying to change lanes we always let you in because other's don't care for neither of us slowing them down. Usually every trucker we've come across has been polite and have even talked to us about our travels and have given us knowledge of the area's we about to travel. This is a really an awesome spot to stop and when we make our way back through we are definitely going to stop again. Loved the diner and museum really brought back my childhood. The old days were the best to much has evolved into the rat race this stopped time for me to enjoy that past time.
  • One of the coolest truck stops I have been too. The food at the diner was really good, the service was decent, and the price was in line with most restaurants. The free car museum was an excellent bonus. There are about ten cars on display with a ton of other items as well. The store portion is well stocked with anything you may need as a traveler.
  • 1st time coming here. Passed by many times. Now that my daughter's are riding with me I decide to stop by check out the museum and dinner. We loved the museum. 5 stars for the museum but the dinner not so much. I like the look of the dinner the serves was good nothing special. What I didn't like is that my order took very long to come out. My daughter's order came out first and the food was cold. They didn't even like the pancakes. They literally fell apart they were not fluffy. Then my plate came out and again my hash browns were cold and under cooked. My omelette was just warm. This wasn't even that busy for my order to have taken this long and have them serve me cold food. They need better cooks that can handle the crowds.
  • Russell's is just across the New Mexico border from Texas on I-40, and sits on about 40 acres of land. There's plenty of truck parking and separate car parking. The layout is huge on the inside, with all the tourist trinkets. I did not try any food, but the menu seemed complete. The place was very clean, including the spacious restrooms. The handicapped stall even has two separate grab bars.
  • Russell's is great! I always make a point of stopping in when I'm coming through. Love the bike and car museum and associates are very friendly. Love hearing old stories from the owner on the history of the items in the museum.
