We have eaten here before on our travels and know they always have a great variety of food and a lot of it. The Truckers always have ample parking on the side and stop for their food. The huge soup and salad bar and buffet is an option or you can order ala carte. We had dinner coming in one... More

Ate dinner from the buffet. It is a truck stop so don't expect too much from the food. However, the staff is beyond excellent, I waited for nothing and they even stopped and talked for a minute.

Most every other place to eat was closed by 8 pm, so we went here. It was okay. If you're really hungry do the buffet. You can order off the menu. Comparable to a Denny's. Good, solid food. Good, friendly service.

Ate dinner here one night while in town, nothing fancy, just good comfort food. Price is right and portions adequate.

Yep, it's a truck stop, like all the reviews say, and I have to add my approval to what they do. While it isn't all great, we had a very good experience. The salad bar was great, though we did wonder why there weren't more types of olives in the "Olive Capital" city. The many other toppings for your salad... More
