  • We stopped for fuel- LOVED the 'free' auto museum so much I mailed a collectors' model truck to them when I returned HOME! Staff at the SUBWAY restaurant was also courteous, efficient after son & I sp...  more »
  • What a gem of a stop on Route 66. Whether you need a delicious meal, food for the road souvenirs or anything in between, car livers can spend hours drooling over some beautifully restored vintage clas...  more »

  • This is absolutely one of my favorite spots on Hwy 40. Nice big store with lots of options. Has an awesome free museum (parents if you have to bring the kiddies then hold both their hands!!!!!). Showers are decent. Plenty of laundry machines, small only. Comfy restaurant with decent food and the best waitresses ever. Only negative is the parking lot for cars. It's so tiny compared to the rest of the property.
  • Best truck Stop ever!! Good food and refreshments and an awesome museum! So glad we stopped in on our road trip from N.M to TN.! People are friendly and the museum is full of classic cars and amazing memorabilia! Truly a must see. Who knew a truck stop could be so cool??
  • Well appointed facilities. Clean bathrooms. Friendly staff. Loved the car museum. Everything very sharp. Unfortunately, that goes for the fish too. Too sharp, with the fish batter having a harshness level similar to sand paper. No joke: It will shred your palate. Maybe tonight was an off night for the cook. I don't know. It took me by surprise because everything else shows painstaking attention to detail.
  • Love this place! Truckers get a free fountain drink with 35 gallon purchase. The showers here is awesome, laundry was $3.50 per load. They have a treadmill to walk on! A driver lounge a chapel, and a fabulous museum to entertain you. And they have even thought of your co-driver and have a dog run out in front
  • Free car museum, open during the day. No hot food for night shift drivers, because no one cares about us. Graveyard shift employees are usually better than the day shift register jockeys (day time employees tend to be too busy socializing to bother with ringing up customers) Store has an overpriced mini-grocery, which is convenient, if you can afford it. Good selection of gifts and souvenirs. Dog walk area is nonsmoking, so it's pretty useless to civilized folk. Fortunately, there are other places to walk dogs. Main parking lot is well maintained, but frequently fills up fast. Overflow parking is rough, but one can generally find parking (assuming that the Idiot Brigade hasn't decided to descend upon the lot in full force, and engage in Pick-Up-Stick style parking; that does happen, on occasion. ) WiFi is free (which is part of why it gets 4 stars, as opposed to 3).
