“decent break along the road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We stopped here with three kids. The youngest (5) had a fun time looking at the rotating big rig. We did stop for fast food and a bathroom break. We have the bottom of the staircase photo of the kids with the logo of "World's Largest Truck Stop", and that would be the highlight.

“Something for everybody!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

The I-80 truckstop, in Walcott, features a regular restaurant, that has great food, along with a separate food court. There is a store that can fulfill traveler's needs as well as a trucker's store that has a myriad selection of everything from truck mats to videos/CD's to books, clothing, and various accessories. The gift shop always nice items, some very unique. There are toys and books for kids, jewelry, handbags, shirts, figurines and an array of gifts. There is even a museum! If you happen to be traveling Interstate 80, do take a few minutes to stop by the Iowa 80; the world's largest truckstop.

“Real trucker food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Don't stop here for salads or vegan fare. But if your goal is honest - to - goodness trucker food, then pull off I80 and stop here. It is exactly what it claims to be: the worlds largest truck stop , frequently with 200 or more trucks parked. These guys know the road and can stop anywhere, but they stop here. In the same family since the day it opened in the 1960s.
I even ate the sausage gravy, which I never do at Cracker Barrel.

“It is what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Its a large truck stop and that's about it... Would not go out of my way to go there, but its on I-80 and pretty much anything major in Iowa is off of I-80.
