Don't miss the opportunity to try all the variety of dates, and to enjoy a delicious date shake. The souvenirs area is really neat and clean. The staff is really nice and friendly. There's a lot of products made of dates. Worth it !

We always stop here when driving between Tucson and San Diego. It has everything a rest stop should have and more. The restrooms are always clean. There is a Quiznos if you are hungry for a sandwich. The store by the gas station has any treat you could want. The gift shop sells delicious dates among other souvenir items. Perhaps... More

If you are traveling on I-8 between Phoenix and San Diego, Dateland rest area is a good option. There is a gas station, sub and very nice ice cream plus gift shop where you can load up on a wide variety of dates. Definitely save room for the ice cream.

If you like dates, you need to stop there. They have many varieties of dates and you can try them before deciding which one you like best. They also have ice cream and shakes of exotic flavors such as cactus. Delicious.

We ALWAYS stop here on our trips to and from Phoenix. Plenty of places to park. Clean restrooms, gift shop, sandwich place, ice cream store, and a convenience store, and of course, fuel. Off the I-8, keep alert--you only have one exit to get there.

Dateland Travel Center is a good place to stop while on the road. Clean restrooms and a BIG parking lot also. Haven't tried the date shake yet but will someday. Fun place to get out of the car and stretch your legs.

Clean restrooms, a Quiznos and a shop serving date shakes and ice cream and gas islands, what else do you need. In addition they have aviation gas and racing fuel. Just don't use the north islands if you are towing a trailer or have a large rig. You will have to try and back out of them.

Yes. Love it. Every single time we go to Yuma we have to stop there. I need them! If you haven't tried it and you're nearby get one.

Can you really make a living with a road stop dedicated to dates? I guess so! We stopped in for the famous date shake and ended up buying date ice cream, several boxes of dates, date butter, date shake mix, and date sugar, not to mention a few other snacks that were not even made with dates!! They saw us... More

Stopped there today for fuel and snacks. Owner was very rude when accidentally dropped napkin on floor after cleaning up a small spill. I feel sorry for the employees that have to work for this man.
