My brother in law insisted we check this place out. It is quite a place. It is a truck stop and so much more. It has multiple food outlets, clean bathrooms, showers for truckers on the second floor. There are lots of items to look at and rest. Certainly worth taking the time to check it out.

We have driven past this place a few times and never stopped. We had friends that insisted we stop there so we did. It was nothing like what we expected. We spent a lot of time there and ate at the buffet. The truck merchandise was fun to look at and take pictures

OMG We were traveling home for our trip out west & stopped in here. It was quite the experience. They not only have a food court with many fast food restaurants but a restaurant with a buffet. We found them most efficient in the food court. It was like going into a mall also, They had all kinds of shopping... More

Stopped here for gas and to stretch our legs. There were several places to get fast food or a sit-down meal. The bathrooms were clean and nice. It was a good location to stop just near the state border.

I don't have much to say about this. Other than it's a good stop after sitting in a car for 5 hours from Indianapolis to Iowa City. If you have time, it's actually a lot of fun to wander into the truck accessory portion of the truck stop. You might even find a cool bumper sticker or six. The restaurant... More

Average buffet with above average prices. Although it's pretty much accepted that 'truck stop' restaurants are pricier than normal.

We saw the Iowa 80 on the show, "Modern Marvels". We made a point to stop there on our way back from Iowa. We had lunch in their very nice food court, where we were all able to choose what we wanted to eat. They also had a buffet if you chose to eat in their restaurant. It definitely was... More

I thought this station was a pilot. Not sure. We ate at an Arby's. The service was great and food better. Everything for a fast food place was fresh. A manager got me roast beef rolled in lettuce as I am gluten free. It was a great break and stop for lunch.

We were in the area so we had to stop at the Worlds Largest Truck Stop. There's plenty of souvenirs to buy. (Pricey) There is also a diner, convenience store, small arcade, showers, dentist and lots of things to buy to trick out your semi truck. There was some construction going on so it was a little confusing knowing where... More
