It's way better than stopping in Amarillo or Albuquerque. Good everything. Friendly people, good chapel, and what a car museum.

Stopped here on a 2500 mile road trip, and was pleasantly surprised and satisfied with the food and service we received. Most would agree that road trip stops are hits and misses, this was a hit.

Their trick is that the gas pump "can't" read your card, forcing you inside past the over priced tourist made in china "southwestern" doodads. They are unapologetic about the ploy. There were two restrooms and both were closed for cleaning AT THE SAME TIME. The gas prices were not good. Keep on driving and don't look back.

great food, good price, fast service, staff could of been friendly and not dressed like slobs, it seems three pregnant girls with their teeshirts stretched over bellys, maybe some change of uniform for them would of help. food was good that place has everything you need for a road trip.

While driving for a long time with no towns in sight, we were delighted to come across Russell's. There's a cafe and mini grocery store inside. There are lots of good Rte 66 souvenirs inside, too. AND, there is a car museum inside!!! My kids keep talking about that car museum. It was so unexpected....and nicer than many we've paid... More

Russell's is so much more than a truck stop. It has gas but also has a car museum and a great little restaurant. Service was wonderful and food awesome. They even have a little chapel that has a little service on Sunday mornings. Will stop here every time!
