“Yes, It's Large!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

On our way to Colorado... stopped to get gas, and came upon THE World's Largest Truck Stop. go figure, in Iowa :) Shopping, dining, truck & car repair, showers, more dining, and of course a pretty cool gift shop. We took a few pictures of the large sign and now I can say I've been here now :)

“Great place to take a break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Many options for food and shopping. A great place to stop and take a break while traveling on I-80. The only difficulty was in trying to exit back to the highway. You have to turn left to get back to I-80, and between road traffic and trucks, it can be a wait. A light at that spot would be very helpful.

“A great diversion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

While traveling I 80, be sure to stop by the worlds largest truckstop and enjoy a meal. There are several restaurants to choose from. This is also a great place to see the life of truckers and gain a better understanding of the world of trucking .

“Great stop on I-80 in Iowa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Obviously a truck stop isn't a destination, but we had seen advertisements for it on the road so we decided to check it out. It's worth a look. It is a huge truck stop with 5 chain restaurants, souvenirs, gifts, t-shirts, snacks, and everything a trucker or traveler could possibly need including a dentist and chiropractor. There is also a small truck museum that just asks for a small donation, but you don't have to give them anything if you can't.

It was a fun pit stop!

“Love truck stops!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Everything you would need on the road you can find here. A great place to stretch and walk around. It's like a mall. If your driving by, you must stop.
