    It is the Largest
    Lives up to the name, a massive theatric testimony to the trucking industry, America's amazing road network, and reminding us that even on the way to incredible places we can always stop at a gas station turned truck stop wonder world. I personally don't see myself ever spending much time here but can see the appeal. There's tons to check out, well designed and clean area, and good assortment of restaurants not offered by the usual interstate stop.

    Worth a stop
    We have driven by this place many times over the years without stopping and finally decided that this time we would stop. We were pleasantly surprised because this turned out to be a fun stop for all of us. Definitely worth making a quick stop to visit all of the little shopping inside grab something good to eat from many different choices or grab some snacks before you head back out on the road you will see people from all over the country here. We'll probably stop again next time.

    World's Largest Truck Stop, what else can you say?
    Nice, but not 5 stars nice. It's a bit more than just the typical tourist trap, but World's Largest Truck Stop, what else can you say? If you are travelling along I-80 planning to stop for lunch at Iowa 80 World's Largest Truck Stop makes sense, it's like the largest foot court at the mall. But it's still a truck stop, with a hand full gift shops as well. What makes the stop really worth while is the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum next door.

Whether you are a trucker or not, the Iowa 80 is a must stop if you are traveling either direction on I-80. If you are a trucker than this is heaven! Featuring a large gift shop, plenty of food options, showers, and every truck accessory you could think of, Iowa 80 also features a trucking museum right next door. There are plenty of Iowa souvenirs, gifts for family and friends, and locally made food items available and the house made fudge is especially delicious. The food court has a Wendy’s, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen, and a Caribou Coffee and if you want to sit a spell, the Iowa 80 Diner is spacious and offers your standard trucker diner fare in a beautiful dining area. If you have never been here, the World’s largest truck stop is a quintessential visit for road trippers!

We stopped on our way from Delaware to California. They have everything you could ever need and then some! The reason for my review is when i went to pay for my purchase the reader showed declined so i used a different card even though i knew it should have gone through. When i checked my account later i found both charges had gone through. I figured it was a mess i had to clean up after the weekend but on Monday when i checked they had already reversed the charge without me having to say anything! THAT is customer service! I will definitely stop when we go through Iowa again!

Great trip. We arrived at approximately 4:30 pm and made our way inside the truck stop. The truck stop was huge and contained many parking spaces for both cars and trucks alike. The inside contained numerous amounts of fast food places and restaurants. There was a great selection of items to choose from. The prices were also comparable to other gas stations in the area.

Tip: I recommend spending 30 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

Drove 2 hours one way to buy fenders for semi. You can't call and get anybody on the phone to find what they have prior to going. Upon getting there had to settle for a lessor product. Getting everything I need go to register and the refuse to accept company checks. Manager was ZERO help and did not care to work with us. Was less than a year ago wtote a business check for a $1000 in exhaust parts.The company lost a $1200 sale and will never step foot in Iowa 80 or a T/A again

Well, we don’t exactly know what to say in this review, but first, it’s everything it says it is. It covers an enormous amount of ground and includes everything a trucker would need. Well, we are not truckers, but we found this place to be spotless and interesting. If you are driving in a storm across eastern Iowa, this is a place to duck in for cover and would keep you busy for hours. The gas was a great price, there’s plenty of parking and the kids can run around.

It said "World's Largest Truckstop" so we had to stop, right?!?! Once we stepped through those doors it was like walking into Disneyland, for truckers. All kinds of fast foot places, a full restaurant, aisle after aisle of food and gifts. Wow!

We were impressed by how clean everything was and how well everyone was following mask and distancing guidelines. We felt very comfortable inside.

We spent about 45 minutes here and will come back to explore more!

We walked over here after visiting the Trucking museum across the parking lot. It is a huge place with various restaurants, stores, restrooms, etc. You can easily spend an hour here, or longer if you plan to eat. There are also Tesla Superchargers on the north side near the Trucking Museum. I recommend a visit. I even found Minnetonka moccasins sold here. Dairy Queen, I 80 restaurant is open 24 hours, coffee, convenience store items, and much more!

It was my first experience at the truck stop. My hubs was a trucker for 41 years and he’s told me about this place for many years. It was overwhelming but fun to explore. We ate at the Iowa 80 Kitchen. The pork chops where spot on as well as the burger. I loved it!

As a stop for food and fuel and bathrooms, it's a pretty good place to go. Though it is neat to be at the world's largest truck stop, that's not why we go. It just often ends up as the mid point in our road trips and we know the gas will be a decent price, the bathrooms are large and clean, and there are some good fast food options.

Was driving along I-80 while traveling from Chicago to Iowa Cioy. Between bad weather that day and just needing a break from all the driving, I decided to make a stop at the World's Largest Truck Stop. Wasn't sure what exactly to expect, but I was thoroughly impressed by just how much this location had to offer.

They have a number of different restaurants, such as Wendy's, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and Dairy Queen. They also have their own Iowa 80 Kitchen, which is open and serving meals 24-hours a day. In addition to the various eateries, there were multiple areas where you can buy items. There were sections with the standard convenience store items, but they also had areas with clothing, toys, and other various odds and ends that make for interesting collectables or gifts.

Entire place is huge, which is to be expected of the World's Largest Truck Stop. However, I was amazed with how clean and well-maintained everything was. Floors were clean. Shelves were stocked. Bathrooms didn't smell funky or bad. Overall, a very pleasant pitstop during my trip.
