This is located in the truck stop at the Flying J. When I walked in it was very busy, and I asked the casher if food could be ordered to go, she said yes. I ordered for my wife and I, would have been easier to know ahead of time what to order, never found it on line. The cowboy... More

Went to this place as I had remembered eating in the past and having a decent meal. Perhaps it was that I had been in a car for 7 hours with a 4 year old and 6 year old and was tired, but it felt like it took forever to get waited on. The food was good. No complaints there,... More

Lots of choices and then there is the buffet. Since this is part of a truck stop, you can get any meal type any time of day. I had a wonderful buffet dinner at breakfast time. The main seating is booths, but there is plenty of overflow seating at tables past the buffet area.

I ate at the buffet last night and it was probably the worst meal I have had in a long time there was absolutely nothing on the buffet that was marked right and the food had absolutely no flavor whatsoever. I don't know what they had in the meatloaf but it was terrible , the macaroni and cheese was cold... More

A truck stop restaurant. Nothing fancy, good food, good service, good selection. We go here now and then for something different. Nice to go to place that is not a chain, and is much better than fast food.

Here's a truck stop along the highway easy to get to, inviting, and having all you need along your trip. It's obvious why the truckers pull in here. The retail side has a host of gifts and daily needs for the travelers and the restaurant provides enough food for an army. The buffet is top notch, fresh and full, with... More

We were on a 4-hour drive and stopped in for lunch. We liked that we were able to quickly grab a bite to eat and could get gas and items from the convenience store at the same time. The food was good and service was fast. The buffet had a variety of food and there was plenty of choice for... More

I live in the area and have only eaten here twice. Both times I was not impressed. I have ate at other Iron Skillets and thought they were much better. The quality of food was definetly subpar for the price you pay. Will not go back again if I can help it.
