“Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This place was really cool. It was like a little town all in one building. If they expanded it to include a hotel, it would be perfect. The staff wasn't as friendly as I expected though, they all seemed kinda bored. I was amazed that they had souvenirs, dvds/movies, collectibles, groceries, about 5 fast food restaurants, one real restaurant, showers, a chiropractor, a dentist, library, trucker's lounge, and more!

“Good place to take a break from the highway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a must stop between Chicago and Iowa City. The food court allows for choices if you are traveling w/ family or friends and you can all still eat together. There are more souvenirs in one place than you've ever seen before. So, if you need a gift of any kind, you will find it here. Of special note - Minnetonka moccasins are available.

“This place provides more entertainment than you would expect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

This place has it all, literally! In addition to the number gas pump and food selections, there are many entertainment venues including theaters and museums. There is also a shopping area that would be a trucker's dream come true! From lights and sound systems to the right decals, this place has everything you would need to make your office on the road as comfortable as possible. And don't forget to pick up a lovely tee shirt with a pug or wolf face on it and enjoy a game in the arcade!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The Wall Drug of Iowa, only bigger. Fuel, fast food, huge gift shop, truckers chrome store, great place to stop if you are about to, or have just, battled I-80 across ILL or IA. Just west of the QCA, easy off, easy on.
