Seafood was all inedible. The peeled shrimp was so freezer burnt they could not have hulls removed. Chicken greasy. Cake dry. Waitress distracted. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL....EAT ANYWHERE ELSE

We stopped here for a quick dinner after being on the road for hours. We ordered the buffet and found the fried chicken quite tasty. Sides weren't as good, but the salad bar was decent. Everything seemed to be kept at the right temperature, as well, which can be a challenge for some buffet restaurants. Swift, attentive service despite the... More

This is one of the nicer Petro trucks stops I've seen, staff was very friendly, food was delicous, buffet was fully stocked and fresh, buffet included desserts and ice cream. I would definitely stop in here again.

Not much on ambience, but its clean, the service is attentive and the food is just what you need after a day on the road. And you can pick up milk and top off hour tank all at one stop! Seriously. though. don't. turn up your nose at this place. You'd be missing out

Prices are to high for the poor quality of food they serve. Does the higher ups in this place even know what is going on?

This place was once White's Truck Stop before Mr White died, but the legend lives on in the cuisine and hospitality! Their breakfast was very good and creative, and their dinners are greast, too, especially their sundaes!

For the past two years my family and I have stopped here for breakfast on our way down to Tennessee. We love it! It is a buffet style breakfast. During the time we went in (about 8am) there was only a few others in there. So it was a quick in and out for us. I would recommend it to... More
