Can't ask for much at a truck stop. I just hoped for french toast, scrambled eggs, and bacon. The bacon was excellent. Eggs were cooked like I asked, and french toast was nothing special but the thickness and taste was good enough. I'm not sure what to think about some of the comments here, but it is a truck stop...

Salad bar is a two Star at best and expensive. Not really impressed with this truck stop. Parking is fine , able to get up front. Bathroom clean and well stoked.

Stopped here for lunch while passing through on the Interstate. Food and service were both very good. Recommend you stop in if you need a good meal during your travels through this area

We stopped on the way home from a two-week road trip.The wait staff was attentive. The food was average. What was terrible is that the restrooms in the travel plaza were out of soap. The store itself had no soap and no hand sanitizer. The store manager let me use the small sink beside the fountain drinks after I had... More

One of the worst Flying J's I have seen. Dirty, Dingy and run down. This restaurant is attached to this truck stop. Found the same with Very poor lighting. Seats all torn up. Floor rough and very dirty. I ate at from the salad bar. Stomach and gut protest my choice all night. Staff friendly enough.

This is part of a flying J. I spent the night here in my motor home and had a very good breakfast here. I had the western omelet with hash browns. The service was excellent, the food was well prepared and the restaurant was clean and orderly. Would easily stop here again.

Food is spendy but good tasting usually breakfast is what I eat here. Service is usually very prompt with a smile and kind word or two.
