We stopped in coming home from the beach. We were hungry, needed to get a fill up on gasoline and get some extra cash as well as a bathroom stop... Surprise to me... We got it all at one stop. The Iron Skillet Truck Stop. They had a great gift shop, very clean restrooms, ATM, and the food was awesome.... More

They have an all you can eat buffet. We ordered off the menu because I wanted breakfast at dinner. Penny was our server and she had a great personality, she felt like a friend I had known all my life. Food was excellent except the creamy gravy it was cold but I was fine with that because I am watching... More

Stop there today on my way to Houston TX and had breakfast.

One person came out ever few minutes to wipe the bars down and replenish... More

The place is grungy and has an unappetizing salad bar. I asked the waitress for very crisp hashbrowns. They were not! I looked at the order she placed in the kitchen. No mention at all about crisp. The elderly clerk at the check out was about as friendly as a doormat. I'd drive a while to avoid this one.

We had the buffet. Enjoyed the veggie soup. It was loaded. The salad bar is small but quite good. The fried chicken was good but the potatoes were cold and slightly undercooked. To make up for this the beans were too well done!

Although just average, this was the best restaurant at this exit of I-81. Other options were Wendy's & Burger King. Buffet had a good selection and food was good.

I eat here once every two weeks or so because it is the only full service restaurant within 5 miles of home. Their lunch and dinner buffets have a large selection. Food is generally bland but acceptable. I do like the salad bar that also has fresh cantaloupe and honeydew. Ordering off the menu is hit and miss. One night... More

The food was delicious! My husband had a grilled chicken sandwich and I enjoyed the salad bar. Don't miss the fabulous cheese biscuits - to die for! Everyone was so friendly and we will definitely eat there again whenever we are in the neighborhood! Truckers have all the good places!! Excellent value for the money!
