“It's a Truckstop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

You need to gas up, fill up and move on? The Irving Big Stop is a great place for the local yokels who want economy, carbs and caffeine, in that order. Fill up your tank and your cooler, and get on going!

“Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Food is always good here. Extensive menu and something for everyone. I love the 'all day' breakfast. Predictable and satisfying and priced right.

“A decent place to have a meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Is it fancy? No. Is it 4 or 5 star? No. But what it is, is consistent home cooked meals at good prices and good service. The menu has a good selection, from breakfast being served all day to a kid's menu and for small eaters/seniors, a section of smaller portioned meals. There is no long wait for your meal and the service is usually good, even when they are busy, which is often.

However, my husband and friend, who are both coffee drinkers, said the coffee was terrible, very watered down. Other than that, we had no complaints.
