Unless you are seriously interested in all things cars, I wouldn’t go out of my way to go here. Sure, it’s full service, which is nice, but it seriously looks like any other mom and pop gas station in operation in America right now.

They pump your gas and clean your windshield and rear window. They ask if you want your oil checked. The following questions do not apply as this a gas station with old fashioned service.

I needed gas anyway, so why not check it out since I was in town, I thought the shop would be informative, the attendents were great as they still wash front & back windows, just the plain typical service station

Getting gas at Reighard's is like stepping back in time. Not only do you get your gas pumped, but you get your front and rear windows cleaned. Very friendly service there.

They still pump your gas and clean your windshield! It's one of America's first gas stations. Located between Horseshoe Curve and Railroaded Museum.
